15U – 19U Substitution Rule: A maximum of 7 substitutions for each team shall be allowed in each game during each half of play. After leaving the game during a half of play, the substituted player may not re-enter the game during the same half of play. The Referee crew will track substitutions each half.
Premier Concussion Policy: If a player is suspected of suffering a head injury they may be substituted for evaluation without the substitutions counting against the team’s total number of allowed substitutions during each half. If the player with the suspected head injury has received written clearance from a Health Care Professional, the player may reenter at any stoppage of play. The evaluated player must replace the original substitute and will not count as a substitution. The temporary substituted player may re-enter the game as a regular substitution. A Team may only make a temporary substitution if they have a substitution available. Should the temporary substitute receive a red card, that player will be removed from the game and the team will play a player down. If the player being evaluated is cleared after the red card, they would be eligible to return to play as provided by the substitution rules based on the age group.
Serving Suspensions: Sit outs earned in a Premier game must be served in the team’s next Premier game. Suspensions may not be served in non-Premier games.
