Caution a team official

It’s my understanding team officials cannot receive a booking ? I know there’s talk of this at football league level but is this filtering down to grassroots ?

It depends where and at what level you referee. In England, according to an announcement made in July this year:
Managers will be issued with red and yellow cards this season after the Football Association announced plans for a player-style disciplinary system on the touchline. Referees will hand out formal bookings for offences in the technical area [...] Yellow and red cards will be shown in all Football League competitions and the FA Cup.
Cards for team officials

Cards have also been used this way in Australia since 2017, as part of an experiment authorised by the IFAB.

While I can understand at higher levels the showing of the card would make it obvious to spectators etc that a member of the coaching staff had been cautioned or removed, I'm not sure of the point at lower levels.

Why wouldn’t they, what’s the point or deterrent if they don’t!. I’d of doubled my CFA bonus over the years if this was chargeable in my time! I had at least one @&£b manager every game, sometimes two!
You don't report warning the bench which is effectively what the yellow-card to a coach is. Has any coach been suspended for an accumulation of yellows?
Sin-bins are reported but there is no fine.

I guess it's not much different than the Ask, Tell. Remove approach to disciplining the benches.

But, instead of only reporting when they're binned, you'd also report them for the official yellow card.

If it were to be implemented here at Grassroots there would need to be alot of work down by clubs to makesure their coaches etc are all registered on WGS, and that any league that uses teamsheets provides enough space for all of the coaches etc to be entered.

But, then surely we'd see a problem with controlling those who are supposed to be in the technical area. Most of my games takes place at a local park or playing field where each teams "technical area" is a mix of players, coaches, and people who might be coaches or might just be people watching.

The above is a good point....how about registered players/coaches wear a bib on match days?

Its sometime very difficult to work out who is a total random punter, who might even be a injured/suspended player, and who is actually registered to the team.

And of course most our grass roots don't have a tech area as such, so things get even trickier

It is a great idea and a yellow card and knowing a fine is coming might well improve the sideline antics. Most coaches were players and understand this system very well and would probably take more notice than the three steps as it is more formalised.

in the three leagues I officiate in its parents etc one side and only club registered coaches the other so would be easy
