All teams should have a full copy of the WJYFL mini soccer rules, however, the following provides a
summarised version of the main areas which most often require clarification. The summary also covers
guidance on the administration of matches, which if followed, helps the games run smoothly.
Rules Summary

3. There is no offside.
4. Substitutions are on a "Role on role off" basis. 
    Managers should wait for a break in the play and notify the Referee that they wish to make a substitution.

    enters the field of play. Substituted players can re enter the game.
5. At kick offs, Corners and Free Kicks, Opposition players must stand 4.5 metres from the ball.

2. At registration, each team should pay their match fees and hand over their team registration sheet, together
    with the players registration documents.
    The sheet will be signed by the centre administrator so that no more names can be added and returned to
     the team.
3. At the end of each game, both team Managers should sign the Referees Card to confirm the result.
    Managers should also enter the result in the spaces provided on their registration sheet, which should be
