NEW FOR SUMMER!!!

Based on popular request, we have opened up our "SUBSTITUTE PLAYER" program for the summer season based on the following:

  • Teams must have 12 paid players before they are allowed to add a Sub Player.
  • Sub Players must be 18 years of age before June 11, 2018, no exceptions.
  • There are TWO steps to registering a Sub:  1.  Player must register (one time only) and pay the Sub Player Fee (either $10 or $30, see below) AND 2. Player must register for EACH game day ($7.50 per game) in which they will be playing..
  • Sub Fees:  If the player was rostered in fall 2017 or spring 2018, the Sub Player Fee is $10.  If the player did not play in one of the last two seasons, the Sub Player Fee is $30.  Game Day Fees are $7.50 per game.
  • Tee shirts are not provided for Sub Players.

Standard FIFA Laws of the Game are enforced with these exceptions:

• The play from the Goalkeeper's hand – punt, parry, throw, or drop-kick, must touch the ground or a player prior to crossing the half-field line. An indirect free kick is awarded at the half line for any infraction.  If a goalkeeper receives a pass with their feet, they are considered a field player and MAY play the ball over half field.

• Goal kicks can be taken from anywhere within the penalty area but must touch either the ground or a player prior to crossing the half-field line. An indirect free kick is awarded at the half.

• The match length will be two twenty-five minute halves with a five-minute interval.
