When a club or tournament director ascertains by a preponderance of the evidence that a player has committed a Code of Conduct violation, the director is empowered to discipline said player in one or more of the following ways, depending upon the seriousness of the offense, the impact on the club or tournament, and any other factors that the director deems relevant to the decision-making process:
=== 1. Official warning – the director warns the player about his/her conduct, and informs the player that additional Code of Conduct violations will carry more serious sanctions. === === 2. A point penalty (e.g., 100 points; 200 points) applied to club or tournament spread. === === 3. Forfeiture of the game in process at the time of the violation. === === 4. Ejection and disqualification from the club or tournament. ===
The disciplinary items listed are not intended to be a system of “progressive discipline” in which the player may only receive an official warning for a first offense. Rather, the director is empowered to levy those sanctions against the player which the director deems reasonable under the circumstances.
