GOAL DIFFERENTIALS FOR U9 THRU U12 REC GAMES

Effective for Spring 2004, all SYA Soccer Recreational (House) Teams for U9, U10, U11, and U12 have a NEW Goal Differential Rule of 4.  The coach of the losing team has the option of adding 1 player with the referee's permission to the game whenever there is a 4 goal differential in the score at any time during the game.  MAXIMUM  of 1 additional player can be added REGARDLESS of the score that exceeds 4 goals. 
 
Referee's responsibility is only to inform the coach of the team that is behind by 4 goals that he/she has the option to add an additional player to the game with referee's permission at any point in the game when there is a 4 goal differential.
