Red and Yellow Cards

Should a player receive a Yellow or Red card during a game, the process the leadership group and committee will take is as follows;


  • Counselling the Player one on one - Coach to Player, in helping the player to understand the modern game of football, spirit of the game, code of conduct, Perth Amateur Football League rules, the concept of club culture, and in bringing the club into disrepute.


  • Getting the Leadership Group involved and engaged to determine if further sanctions are deemed necessary and assisting in educating the Player in all mentioned above.



  • Having a Player sign a letter of agreement from the Yanchep Red Hawks Football Club to follow the Yanchep Red hawks Football Club Code of Conduct in its values and the requirement to play within the spirit of the game at all times.


  • The process of discipling the Player would be Player driven and Club supported so that upon recommendation from the Leadership Group where a player commits an offence that is detrimental to football or a reportable offence in which the Player is found guilty (red card), the Player will receive one additional week suspension on top of the Perth Amateur Football League imposed suspension. Where a player receives two Red Cards in a given season, the suspension imposed by the Perth Amateur Football League will be doubled.


Each incident should be considered on a case by case basis, however, repeat offenders, or more serious cases, these measures should be an effective process to deter negative behaviour
