The above mentioned suspension will be the minimum disciplinary action assessed to the player. A Disciplinary Committee will meet to review the player and prior penalties. The Disciplinary Committee will recommend disciplinary action for the player including but not limited to an extended suspension. Staff will make the final decision of the disciplinary action.
