Adult Team Check-In Process
Referee will obtain the official team roster of each team from the Sports Hall Monitor prior to each game. Prior to kick-off the referee will line teams up and check them in. Each player must present a photo ID to the referee before they are allowed to enter the game. During the check-in procedure, the player must also show the referee what jersey number they will be using for that game. Goalies are not required to have numbers. If a player is late to the game they must check- in with the Sports Hall Monitor in the office.
All Adult teams are required to have numbers on shirts for every game. Numbers may be taped on shirt if necessary.
All Adult players must present photo ID to the referee prior to kick-off.
Referees will check-in teams from the roster. They will match ID to rostered player and their number. If player is wearing a different number the referee will write the correct number on the roster.
Violent conduct will not be tolerated. Players may be suspended for more than one game or suspended from the league if the director deems appropriate.
All Red cards will be kept on record. Repeat occurrences of red cards by the same player may result in multi game or season suspension.
Teams may ask rostered players from other teams to sub if they are not able to field a team. Team must get approval from opponent in order to do so. Substitute player must be added to game roster that the referee has and team manager of opponent must sign and date the roster by the name indicating this is approved by their team and the game results will stand and it is not a forfeit.
If team does not approve allowing the subs, the player’s name and their number will still need to be written on roster and “No” written by the player’s name. The game will be recorded as a 3-0 win for the team not using unrostered subs.
All coaches involved in a National Sports Center youth event are required to take concussion training as dictated by Minnesota Statue 121A.37.
