*Fouls & Misconduct: 
Opponents must be ten yards from the ball on restart kicks. Coaches should work cooperatively with players to eliminate the need for cautions and send-offs. Referees will issue cautions and send-offs if such action, in the opinion of the referee, is warranted. The referee will complete a misconduct report should a yellow or red card be issued. Players receiving a send-off will not be allowed to participate in their next scheduled match. It is the coach’s responsibility to notify the referee of the next match of this requirement. 

* Referee: 
AYSO certified Intermediate Referees or higher are recommended for 14U games. Regional Referees can participate with RRA and RC approval. 

Advanced Referees are needed for 16U and above games. Intermediate Referees can participate with RRA and RC approval. 

* Assistant Referees/Club Linesmen: If available, qualified, neutral assistant referees who have completed Regional Referee Certification (or higher) may be used to assist the referee. This is an opportunity for new intermediate referees or seasoned regional referees to gain experience. If qualified assistant referees are not available, Club Linesmen (someone who is affiliated with one of the teams/clubs) may be recruited from the spectators to assist the referee with calling the ball in and out of play only. This is an opportunity for parents to get involved. 

* General Play Requirements: 
There are no field position play requirements for goalkeeper. A player may play the position of goalkeeper the entire match. 

* Injury Substitutions: 
If a player is injured during the course of a game and is forced to leave the field, there are two options: 

• The coach may substitute for the injured player for the quarter. However the injured player may not return to the game for the remainder of the quarter in which they left the field or 
• The coach can elect to play short a player for that quarter and when the injured player can continue he may substitute back into the game at a break in play with the referee's permission. 

Playing time credit in injury cases: The player who starts the quarter will get credit for the whole quarter regardless of how much time they play. This means time played by the substitute cannot be applied toward the three quarters they are required to play. 

* Substituted Players (14U): 
Substitutions occur only during quarter breaks. No free subs in the 14U.
