2018 GDSFA Final Series Procedures

Message from CEO GDSFA, Mike Quarmby: 

DOWNLOAD the 2018 Final Series Procedures

This weekend brings the spotlight on the Associations and yourselves. The semi-finals, whilst we know should and will be competitive, lends itself to no excuse for unruly behaviour.

Please advise your coaches apart from your well wishes, that they lead their teams in the spirit of discipline and sportsmanship.

Abuse to referees, officials and players will not be tolerated.

Each team must have 2 jacketed officials for their fixture. Their purpose is to ensure the team bench and team spectators behave appropriately.

The host venue is to have at least 2 jacketed officials who are authorised to direct team officials where there is unruly behaviour.

Please pass this message on to all in the semi-finals. With that being said, good luck and have a great weekend.

Mike Quarmby
