Saugus ACES League Guidelines


Saugus ACES is an adult, co-ed, recreational soccer league sponsored by AYSO Region 46 in Saugus, CA.   

The purpose of the league is to:

  • Provide opportunities for every adult 18 and up to play soccer
  • Develop Coaches, Referees and Volunteers
  • Promote Sportsmanship
  • Get everyone playing
  • Support the love of the game
  • Offer opportunities for adults to exercise through playing soccer

Players must agree to follow our Code of Conduct and work to promote games that are safe, fair and fun.

With these goals in mind, please familiarize yourself with the following guidelines and the Code of Conduct.

Violation of the League Guidelines or Code of Conduct will result in disciplinary action from the referees (Yellow or Red Cards) and/or the League Board.  Depending on the severity of the misbehavior and other factors (i.e. past problems with a player or team), players and teams may face any of the following consequences.  Any of these actions may be taken without prior warning, meaning, for example, you could be expelled for a first offense if itÃ?¢??s bad enough.

  • Warning (verbal or written)
  • Dismissal from current game.
  • Suspension from one or more future games.
  • Expulsion from league for remainder of season, or any number of future seasons (or permanently).

The decision of the League Board on disciplinary matters is final.

Appeals and Review:   As stated above, our focus is on providing an environment that is safe, fair and fun for all players.  All disciplinary actions are taken with this in mind, with the safety and enjoyment of the players being our primary concern.  That being the case, all actions taken by the League Board may be appealed by going and finding another soccer league to play in.
