League communications will happen via the bluesombrero registration system. 

In the event of inclement weather all players will be messaged through that system. So be sure to register.

If you don’t hear anything, it is fair to assume games are on. Cancellations are rare.

 

GENERAL LEAGUE RULES

 

CYAS CODE OF CONDUCT

Sportsmanship is required in this league. Such as:

·      The officials are volunteers that give time to make your game more enjoyable; please thank them after every game for offering their time! We encourage you to buy them food/drinks after the games (it doubtfully will help you on the field, but can’t hurt).

·      All games are in the hands of the officials. Any questions/discussions about the rule interpretations should go through the team captain.

·      Pray before and after games (optional if not Catholic), and shake hands after games

·      Go out to the socials and comingle with other teams

·      Encourage and engage players that are not as athletic/skilled, these are rec. leagues!

Unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated and may result in ejection from games or the league. This includes:

·      recruiting stacked teams (in casual leagues) & running up the score

·      foul language (including the Lord’s name taken in vain), racial slurs and verbal abuse

·      unnecessary roughness and/or physical abuse

·      acting out of anger, including throwing equipment or personal items

·      arguing with officials, staff, participants, or fans

·      abuse of the honor system

EQUIPMENT

 

GAME TIME AND MERCY RULES

 

SUBSTITUTIONS

·         A match is played by two teams, each consisting of not more than five players (a goalkeeper and four outfield players).

·         A team may call for a sub at any time, but must wait until the referee blows the whistle and signals that it is time for a sub change.

 

GOALKEEPERS

·         Goalkeepers have only five seconds in which to play the ball, with either their hands or feet, and may not touch it again if it has been deliberately played to them by a team-mate without an opponent playing or touching it.

·         Goalkeepers cannot score.

 

GENERAL RULE HIGHLIGHTS

·         Goals may not be scored directly from the kick-off in futsal.

·         There are no off-sides.

·         There are no slide-tackles.

 

ACUMMULATED FOULS & THE SECOND PENALTY MARK

·         Accumulated fouls are those penalized with a direct free-kick or penalty kick, regardless of whether advantage has been played or not. If a team commits a sixth accumulated foul, the opposing side may take the subsequent free-kick awarded to them without a wall, either from the second penalty mark, which is positioned four meters behind the first, or from a position even closer to the penalty area if the foul was committed between the goal line and the second penalty mark.
