Presidio Soccer League & San Diego Developmental Academy Gaming Rules

  1. REFEREE REGISTRATION AND ID CARDS.  In order to be assigned games in Presidio Soccer League or San Diego Developmental Academy the referee must be registered for the current year and have a current approved Cal South Referee ID card.  This Cal South ID card must be with the referee at every game.  This Cal South ID card must be shown to the administrator of both teams when checking in the players.  Any referee who forgets his card more than twice shall no longer be assigned games until the referee agrees to bring their card to the game.  The teams know the procedure for when a referee does not have their Cal South ID card.  If the referee causes a game not to be played due to the referees not having their Cal South ID card at the game, the referee’s association will be billed the fee to reschedule the game and they will then in turn bill the for collection of the fee.
  1. CENTER REFEREE.  Center referee assigned must be qualified to referee the assigned age group.  It is suggested that the center referee be older than the age of the teams playing.  It is the assignor’s responsibility to properly assign the entire referee crew.
  1. RULES OF PLAY. IFAB Laws of the Game will apply as modified by USYSA, Cal South and Presidio Soccer League as described below:
  1. FIELDS.  Fields shall conform to FIFA (Law 1) and may be adjusted for youth. The home league is responsible for marking and setup of the field.  All fields must be properly marked, GOALS MUST be properly anchored down, and have corner flags. GOALS NOT PROPERLY ANCHORED DOWN equals NO GAME and if they can’t be fixed the home team shall forfeit the game.  The suitability of corner flags, goals safely anchored and playability of the field are the sole and final discretion of the Referee under the laws of the game.  Be sure to discuss any concerns you may have about the field prior to the start of the game.  Once the game begins it will be considered a played game.
  1. HALFTIME AND ADDITIONAL TIME.  The length of break at HALFTIME is 5 minutes.  Presidio/SDDA allows for 15 minutes in-between games, to check in the teams for the next game and to hydrate.  If the halftime limit is not enforced and the referee adds additional time then there will be a time crunch to get all the games in for the day.  Presidio/SDDA requires a proper and correct check-in of players.  Allow or adjust appropriately, when you add additional time.  
  1. CHECK-IN.  Referees shall be dressed in the appropriate uniform with the current year USSF badge, have their Cal South Referee ID Card and be ready to officiate at least (30) thirty minutes prior to the game. 

All players must be in their game jersey 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of the game.  If players are not in game jerseys when the referee go to check them in, please note that on the roster or online in the comment section on which team(s) were not ready to be checked in.  Presidio will discuss this issue with the club so this doesn’t happen again. 

Each team is to bring a Presidio/SDDA Official Match/Roster Game Report to each game. If home team does not have theirs then the visiting team can supply.   The referee or referee team must show their Cal South Referee ID Cards before the game to each team administrator, which is done at team check-in.

Check-in can be done either by using the Official Match/Roster Report or by using the NEW Digital Player Card mobile application for phones.  Teams must meet the check-in criteria within the 15 minute grace period allowed. Failure to comply will result in an abandoned/forfeit. Referees must verify that each player on the Presidio/SDDA Official Match/Roster Game Report or on the Digital Player Card application has a valid Cal South Player ID Pass/Card and that:

    1. All player cards have the same club number on them.
    2. The coach is affiliated with the club and has a minimum of an “E” Coach’s License, or in an emergency situation a manager with an “F” Coach’s License.
    3. Player’s jersey numbers and names are listed correctly on the Presidio/SDDA Official Match/Roster Game Report.
    4. Players being checked-in must match the pictures on the cards and/or the Official Match/Roster Game Report or on the Digital Player Card mobile application.
    5. Handwritten player(s) on the match report are legal as long as they have a proper Cal South Player Card matched to the club’s ID number or they are shown to be on the team on the Digital Player Card mobile application.
    6. Any Club Pass players should be listed on the roster as well, and card will match club but the team number will be different.  (Club Pass players are allowed only in SDDA , Club Pass Players are not allowed in Presidio).
    7. Teams must meet the check-in criteria within the 15 minute grace period allowed. Failure to comply will result in an abandoned/forfeit.  
    8. Referees will check player’s equipment (FIFA Law 4): cleats, shin guards, and other uniform requirements.  Illegal equipment equals NO PLAY, SAFETY FIRST.  Safety of all players is a vital concern of Presidio Soccer League/San Diego Developmental Academy.
    9. If a field or field equipment is dangerous or unsafe, do not play the game and report it on the Presidio/SDDA Official Match/Roster Game Report.
    10. The Referee when completing the Presidio/SDDA Official Match/Roster Game Report will indicate on the roster and online in the scoring comment section any player that sat out a game for any suspension related cards.
    11. Referees will check that each team has a licensed coach or manager in attendance for the entire game with a valid Cal South Coaching Pass.  A minimum of an "E" License  is mandatory for all competitive coaches.  A manager must have a minimum of an “F” License to be able to coach on an emergency basis.  
    12. Presidio / SDDA recommend using “Club Linesmen” when short referees.  Club Linemen may only signal when the entire ball crosses the touch line or goal line.  They cannot call Offside.  Use of any Club linesmen must be written in on the Presidio/SDDA Official Match/Roster Game Report and reported in the comment section when reporting the game online.
    13. Referees agree that by accepting and refereeing any Presidio Soccer League/San Diego Developmental Academy game, that they will follow the all rules and when requested, will appear before any Trial Board Hearing.  Failure to do so will result in said Referee being relieved of all Presidio Soccer League/San Diego Developmental Academy referee duties until the matter has been resolved.
  1. SUBTITUTIONS: Player Substitutions are according to IFAB with the exception that the number of substitutions is unlimited.  Substitutions are allowed using the following guidelines:
    1. All substitutions may be made by either team, with the consent of the referee, at any stoppage of play.
    2. When a player injured on the field requires attention, they must be substituted off the field of play. Except for players of the same team who have collided and a goalkeeper and an outfield player have collided, and need immediate attention.  Only coach or trainer may attend to injured player unless approved by the referee.
    3. Substitutions shall be made at midfield line. The substitute player shall not enter the field of play until the player substituted has left the field of play or has been waved on by the referee.
    4. Excessive substitutions resulting in delay of game is unsporting and is discouraged. The referee has the power through the laws of the game to manage this type of behavior, by not allowing the substitution or adding time.
  1. ABANDONED GAMES.  The referee may abandon a match:
    1. If a team does not appear.
    2. If a team does not meet the check-in criteria in the 15 minute grace period.
    3. No licensed coach or licensed manager.
    4. If there are an insufficient number of players to meet the requirements of the Law of the competition,
    5. If the field or any of its equipment do not meet the requirement of the Laws and/or is otherwise unsafe.

    An abandoned match will be ruled complete, ordered re-played or continued from the point of stoppage by Presidio Soccer League.  The referee must report fully on the events.
  1. TERMINATED GAMES.  The referee may terminate a match:
    1. for reasons of safety (bad weather or darkness),
    2. for any serious infringement of the Laws,
    3. if a licensed coach or licensed manager is sent-off during the game, or
    4. Interference by spectators.

Terminated games before the commencement of the second half may be re-played in their entirety. Terminated games terminated during the second half may be considered complete. Only Presidio Soccer League, not the referee, has the authority to declare a winner, a forfeit, or a replay of the match in its part or entirety. The referee must report fully on the events.

Abandonment or termination of a game may be ruled a forfeit by Presidio Soccer League, when the actions of that team’s players, coaches or spectators is the cause for the abandonment or termination of the game.

  1. ADMINISTRATOR RED CARDS/FORFEITS.  If there is not a properly licensed coach or in an “emergency” a manager with an “F” license affiliated with the club present during the entire game, that team will forfeit the game.  All coaches must be currently licensed by Cal South and have at least an “E” Coaching License.  Any licensed coach from the team’s club may continue the game if that coach has a valid coach’s card with that club.  If the coach is sent off and no other licensed coach or manager affiliated with the club is available to continue as coach, the referee will terminate the match.  Any coach sent off must be out of sight and sound prior to, during and after the game.
