Laws of the Game - Division Rules of Play

AYSO in general follows the international football laws as set by the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). To learn more about the FIFA Laws of the Game, click here. We do, however, have some modifications for the younger Divisions in our Region. Please click on a Division below to learn more about the modified Rules of Play.

The following table shows statistics for each of the divisions:

*AYSO game rules allow for a substitution break at approximately halfway through each half. The referee will blow the whistle at an appropriate break in the play (not necessarily at the exact half-of-half time on the clock) in order for the substitutions to take place. This is not intended as a team break, but rather a quick swap of those players that are being substituted.
 
* When a team is short players, the use of guest players is permitted within certain parameters.  Please be sure to read the region's Guest Player Policy:
