Norcal Leagues Substitution Rules for 2014

There have been some changes to the Cal-North/ CYSA referee administration and substitution rules for the upcoming season that I thought that you should know.  

Player Substitution Process As Modified In 2014

Players may be substituted at the following times:
i.    Prior to a throw-in, in your favor.  Competitions may allow substitutions by either team if the team in possession of the ball substitutes.
ii.    Prior to a goal kick, by either team.
iii.    After a goal, by either team.
iv.    After an injury, when the referee stops play, by either team.
v.    At half time.
vi.    When the referee stops play to caution a player, only the cautioned player may be substituted, prior to the restart of the game.
vii.    The number of substitutes shall be unlimited. A substitute shall not enter the field of play until he/she has been given a signal to do so by the referee.

ccsl_logo norcal_logo_trimmed ECNL_logo
Referees, you must be aware of the differences in procedures and rules for Division 1 and Division 3 level games, including Division 4 (recreational).
Part of being a professional is knowing the details about your game, including game lengths, send-off procedures, substitutions and the like. Take a look at these links for game day procedures you'll need before you go out to the field. Send one of us a note if you have further questions.  Make sure you know what to do if there is a Red card before your game, not after!
