Penalty Cards:

Yellow Cards - Represents a visual warning to the player, coach and spectators, as a form of a caution for a players/coach’s conduct on or off the field.  The player who has received the yellow card may continue playing in the game.  If player who receives a second yellow card in a game, they are shown the yellow card again, and then a red card, meaning that the player must leave the field immediately and take no further part in the game.
