Game Times: 

Should be a 3:30 kickoff unless both coaches and referee have agreed to a different time.

If a referee does not show up: If by 3:45pm a referee does not show up to the field, coaches would get together and see if they have a qualified ref suitable for the calibre of game being played. Perhaps a staff member or parent. If this is not possible or both coaches can not agree then each coach referees one half of the game. If this is not agreeable, then the game must be made up at a later date.  However, if this is agreeable there is no protests laid after the match because of the refs ability  or his or her calls etc. The results of the game stands.


Substitutions: 

Unlimited substitutions are allowed. Referees will signal a player on to the field at their discretion.

Game Lengths: 

Seniors play two 40 minute halves, Juniors and Grade 8/9 play two 35 minutes halves. In all league games, if the game ends in a tie, there is no overtime or penalty kicks.


Field Conditions: 

If games are in jeopardy due to field conditions, the home team should seek out an alternate field. If the home team is unable to find an alternate field, the visiting team has the option of finding one. All field changes must be reported to the zone coordinator and referee allocator. 


Forfeits: 

If a school is unable to field a team and forfeits a regular season game, there will be a $50 fine levied to that school plus the cost of the referee for that game and any field costs associated with the game. If a school forfeits a Zone Championship game the fine is $100 plus the cost of the referee and any field costs associated with the game. 

 

Protests: 

All protests must be filed immediately and must include making the referee and the opposing coach aware that a protest is being filed and the reason for the protest.
