    Looks like it was worked out on the field.
    Why can't you let it go? Was it your child that got body slammed and you feel the need to get him back?
    What's to say the kid didn't deserve that and more?

    Sounds like Barca. Not sure if an attorney could help get money to reimburse medical costs.

    That is actually probably harder. CSL does not have a great track record of appropriate punishment. Have your director submit the facts but there is no other formal complaint process that I know of.

    So yes, it was your kid and yes, you want payback. Got it. Thanks for answering those questions. However, I notice that the one question you didn't answer is if he deserved it.

    Why not give some backstory as to what lead up to it and what disciplinary action was taken by the refs so that we can get a more accurate picture of what happened?

    By fighting his battles for him, are you helping him or hurting him?

    BTW, from what you have shared, an attorney can't do sh*t for you except take your money.

    I am utterly shocked at some of the responses here. No matter if it's on the pitch or on the street what was described is in fact assault and with video evidence or enough witnesses, you IF what you described is accurate get a lawyer and yes an arrestable offense if the player is not a minor

    If it is in the spirit of the game and during gameplay then leave it. If an altercation took place after a stoppage of play and your son was harmed by an assault then you can take action. These kids need to learn that when they turn 18 you are looking at potential jail time or worse for reacting like what is described.

    I know a person who was an 18 year old HS student who went with his friend to back his friend up in a fight. When they arrived the person his friend was supposed to fight arrived with a large group. The fight became a group affair and the person I know struck one of the other kids in the temple and he died. The 18 year old kid was charged with a hate crime (black on Hispanic) and is now serving 8 years for manslaughter with a hate crime. He had one other prior for misdemeanor drug possession for personal use. Sad for both the family of the person who died and the kid who had no intent on killing anyone.

    I know this is a different story but these young men have no idea the harm they can inflict on someone with their fists and sadly some families at the games I ref and coach at are encouraging their kids to fight. Its not OK almost ever in a sporting event.

    It always hurts to see your kid beat up.
    Here's some options:

    1. Beat up the parent of that kid. Pro's you will feel great even if you get a bloody nose. Con's: lawsuits,medical bills, and a YouTube video.


    2. Beat up the kid that did this to your child or get in a fight with the coach
    Pro's: none.
    Con: parents pats pyl b05 did this and they went from 1st place to last place. You will be the Villian

    3. Do nothing:
    Pro: you move on and your child will learn to fight back next time or fight smarter.
    Con: You feel like crap because you can't do anything since a child is involved.

    My vote is do nothing.

    I would say that the parent for the other kid should at least appologize if in fact his son was involved.

    I hear suing minors for medical bills is always worth the effort because they usually have such deep pockets.

    Send a letter to the league and let it rest.

    On the old forum similar discussions took place. Some individuals took action because they believed their was intent to harm and filed a police report and/or contacted the league and club. I do not recall if anyone ever tried to re-coop medical costs, but I do believe Cal South does offer some assistance with medical costs. This may be worth looking into.

    Street Justice!!! Have your sons team dress up as skeletons for Halloween. Go to the school dance and use their karate skills to attack the kid. But watch out for the old guy jumping over the fence.

    It hard to keep kids away from this if sports fights are all over National media lately.

    No one is talking about ghetto gang race wars here and it is probably best if you keep your family/friends problems to yourself. What we are talking about here is a child pushing another child down and the mom getting all worked up about it and looking to see if she is able to extract some level of revenge on behalf of her child. From your story, it sounds like your family already has some experience in the revenge game. How did that work out for you or your friends? Not so good. Like I said before, it looks like it has already worked itself out. Like the other poster states, do nothing and get on with your life. Neither your or the original poster should let this hate fester inside you.

    Lastly, based on what we have been told by the OP, you are an idiot if you think that the this lady has a case against the child that pushed her child during a soccer game.

    Medical would be handled through "Cal South", the claim form with instructions is on their website. You will need to complete the form in it's entirety, have your clubs President sign and submit. Their insurance is secondary however, if you do not have insurance, it becomes primary. Best to file the claim as soon as possible although, it can be up to a year. As far as Coast Soccer and any additional action, if the player received a Red Card, it can be up to a 7 game suspension, the ref should have taken the player's card and sent it in to Coast Soccer, the player could then be called before a review board to determine the length of suspension. Best of luck.

    Sorry but you seem a bit ignorant.

    My story was not about family but someone I know and it was not gang related but a disagreement between two individuals that escalated and ended in tragedy for both families.

    A push and a slam CAN be very different and the fact that it was from a player not initially involved in the play shows intent and happens all to often in sports. Now you might get pride over the fact that your player can beat up others players and there are parents that encourage their kids to do so as the "team defenders". There is no place for this in sports period.

    Id love to see a rule in sports that if you take part in something like this that the player who caused the injury sits for the same length that the injured player must sit out due to the injury inflicted upon him
