- If play is stopped due to an injury, the “injured” player must be subbed off the field for a minimum of 2 minutes.
- If play is stopped due to a foul which causes another player to fall and get “injured” both players must be subbed for a min of 2 minutes
- If a player is noticed to be playing with anger that player must be subbed immediately for a min of 2 minutes.
- If a player causes two fouls (i.e. tripping, pushing, slide tackling) within the same quarter that player must be sat the remainder of that period.
- No player is allowed to play an entire half without being subbed
- If score reaches an excess of a 4 point differential it shall be agreed upon that the more advanced players of the winning team play defense (not to cross midfield) giving the less advanced kids a chance to actually touch the ball. Once score drops below the four point differential stronger players can be moved back into offense positions if desired.
- FINAL score can not be in excess of a 6 point differential, if not adhered too, a forfeit will be given to the team with too many goals
