ABSTRACT
This work shows a descriptive study on infringements, defined as actions penalized by referees, and the different competition categories in youth soccer. It analyzes the frequency of sanctions imposed by the Competition Committee of the Soccer Federation of Murcia (Spain) on players and coaches in the different categories of 11-a-side soccer (under-12, under-14, under-16, and under-18). We test the hypothesis that there are significant differences in the frequency of sanctions imposed on players and coaches in the different categories of competition.
