Changes for Spring 2020 Season
- The spring 2020 season will be shortened by one game for each division to enable us to have playoffs on the weekend before Mother’s Day. 8U to 14U will have 9 games instead of 10, and 16U & 19U will have 7 games instead of 8.
- BIHYSA has created an Traveling League (TL) which will be separate from our regular season games. This league will allow clubs/teams with players from other clubs/teams to create rosters that allow them to play as a team while still enjoying the games with their “home” clubs/teams. This league will be formed by any club teams willing or wishing to enter. The games will be minimal to prevent over playing of players. The purpose of this league is to allow rosters for our regular season games to be created based on club players only. The ETL rosters will be for players wanting to travel with local teams, which need games to qualify for PDC or State Cup. The number of teams and games in this league will depend on how many clubs/teams are interested in entering. Please contact BIHYSA for more information.
We will continue to do the following :
- Promotion/Relegation will continue into the Spring season based on the results from the fall season (see placeholders below). If a team wants to promote up to a higher flight than what they are scheduled to be in based on placeholders, they must find another team that is willing to relegate into their place. This move can only happen if both teams agree to the change and no other teams are affected by the move.
- Our 8U division will be use the new model for creating the season schedule. Due to the variability in the the level of skill of 8U teams, BIHYSA will employ a method for scheduling 8U games which is similar to a tournament style of competition. Basically, the 8U division will be divided into two groups of teams (relatively balanced). A schedule will be generated for the 8U division for the first 5 weeks of competition. At the end of those weekends, the top half of teams from each division will be grouped to form an A flight and the bottom half of each division will be grouped to form a B flight. These two flights will play the remaining 5 weeks of games to determine seeding within their respective flights.
- Players who play on 14U teams on Saturdays and wish to play on 16U and 19U teams on Sundays, as well as players traveling from other islands, will not contribute to the 3-4-5 rule for multi-rostering onto BIHYSA teams.
IMPORTANT NEW IFAB changes to the laws of the game:
- Players may leave the field from the nearest point to where they are during a substitution.
- Coaches can and will be shown cards for cautions and send-offs. ASK-TELL-DISMISS
- Team who wins the coin toss can pick ball or direction.
- Drop balls inside penalty area are dropped to the keeper. Outside the penalty area, DB goes to player of last team to touch the ball, all players must be 4.5 yards away from the ball.
- If the ball hits the ref and goes to the other team, starts an attack or scores, then a DB.
- Hand Balls will be called, even if accidental, if… a goal is scored or a goal scoring opportunity is created after hitting an attacking players hand, the ball hits the hand of a player who has made themselves bigger, or if the hand is above player’s shoulders.
- Attackers are not allowed with 1 yard of a wall with more than two defenders. Violation at the time of the kick is an indirect free kick for the defending team.
- Goal kicks and free kicks from inside a penalty area are considered in play when the ball moves (the ball does not have to leave the penalty area to be considered in play) and opposing team must still be outside the penalty area.
- During penalty kicks, the keeper cannot be moving, nor touching the bar/posts/net, and must have one foot on the goal line when kick is taken.

Coaching Courses and Development
All coaching courses utilize the USSF Digital Coaching Center. The online coursework and 4v4 module can be done anytime during the year. Modules for 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11 will be offered in mid-June every year and are required for coaching at the level intended for your team.
Coaches on the Technical Side
Only persons having in their possession a valid Risk Management badge issued to them and listed on the printed roster may actively participate with a team during a HYSA sanctioned game or activity. This means that all coaches that will be on the technical side of the field must have completed Risk Management prior to their first game. Be advised it takes a month, if not more, to get your badge.
Maximum Roster Sizes
USSF has given guidelines for the size of rosters based on the small sided game initiative (see Game Specifications Page). These are recommended maximum roster sizes. BIHYSA understands that based on our geography and limited number of clubs and teams in a given area that conforming to these maximums can be challenging, especially at the U8 and U10 age divisions. Please try to conform your team sizes to those prescribed by USSF as best as possible.
Multi-rostering of Players
Multi Rostering will be limited to 3 players for teams with less than 8 players a side, 4 players for teams with 8 to 10 players aside. 5 players with teams playing 11 aside. This limit applies to player’s multi rostered from within the league.
Forfeiting a game
If a team forfeits a game but would still like to engage in a scrimmage, substitute players must have member card present and play in the correct age division. In addition any cards that are issued count towards your season total. There is no fee for forfeiting a game and playing a scrimmage. There is a $50 fee if a team forfeits and does not play a scrimmage. A $75 fee will be assessed for a “no show” to a game.
Voluntary/requested game changes will cost $40 for the team requesting the change after the final schedule is posted on Affinity. There is no requirement for a team to accept a change, and the team requesting the change will only be charged if the change is accepted.
