FIberglass casts which usually come in a variety of different colours (and are the most common) can be worn but they need to be foam which is 1 inch thick or bubble wrap to the same extent, it also needs to be inspected by the referee before each game.
Any other soft cast are also allowed and can be worn as long as it has been inspected/approved by the referee before the game
All U11 to U18 teams must provide nets and corner flags for each game for their half of the field.
Player Pick Up GuidelinesCLICK HERE
If your U14-U18 team is going to be short (less than 7 players), you may pick up players from the age group below as per the Guidelines. If this still doesn't work for a team, we encourage coaches to do what they can so the players that ARE available and do show up still have the opportunity to play - even if it's a modified form of a game.
Most fields should be lined regularly. There are, however, some weekends with field scheduling conflicts, in which games have had to be scheduled on irregularly used fields. Please be understanding if you find your field is not lined and you need mark the field with cones.
Some 9/10 fields will not be lined and you will need to use cones to mark the fields. Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind (BCSA recommendations):
Field width: 30 meters (min) 36 meters (max). This is approximately 18 paces from the middle of the goal to the corner flag.
Goal area: 10 meters (approx. 11 paces) from the inside of the mini goal post towards the corner flag and 10 meters (approx. 11 paces) into the field.
Game sheets are to be completed for all U14-18 games (including pre-season AND all cross-over games).
