Forfeits, Rainouts, and Cancellations
If a team is not able to field eight (8) registered players within 10 minutes of the scheduled match, that team will have forfeited the match.
A team that refuses to play after having been instructed to do so by an official will have forfeited the match.
In the event of a forfeit the teams may request that the referees remain for a friendly match, they are not required to do so.
The score of a forfeited match shall be 3-0.
Games ended for referee abuse or poor team conduct will not be replayed.
If a game ends for referee abuse or poor team conduct, the team at fault will forfeit the match by a score of 5-0. The team at fault will be required to pay a $100.00 fee before the next scheduled game.
If a team has more than one (1) forfeited game in a season, a $50.00 fee will be required before the next scheduled game.
For matches that are rained out prior to half time, every attempt will be made to replay the game in its entirety.
Player safety is always the main concern in declaring a rainout. We will do our best to be reasonable when deciding whether to reschedule due to weather.
Substitutions are allowed, but only with referee permission at the following points in the game:
- Throw ins (only the team with possession)
- Goal kicks (either team)
- After a goal (either team)
- Half time
- Injury stoppage (either team)
- After a caution, only the cautioned player(s)
The number of substitutions is unlimited. Players must go to the midfield mark and wait for the referee to indicate permission.
When, in the opinion of the referee, a team substitutes to consume time (time-wasting tactics), the referee can caution the captain for poor team conduct and deny permission to substitute.
