  1. Ejection

    In sports, an ejection is one of several disqualifying actions assessed to a player or coach by a game official, usually for unsportsmanlike conduct. Many ejections occur for such actions as illegal fighting, persistent arguing with a game official, or blatant violations of the rules deemed serious. Usually, a warning is given to the offender before he/she is actually ejected. When the offender is ejected, he/she must leave the immediate playing area; in most cases, this means going to the locker room or other part of the venue out of sight of the playing area, or in extreme cases, leaving the stadium grounds. In the case of many High School Associations, ejected players are required to stay with their coach in the team area or an assistant coach may be required to leave the area with the player for supervision purposes. If a player or coach refuses to cooperate, additional sanctions may be levied.

Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms

  1. ejection
