NorCal Premier Updated Rules

Number of officials for U9-U11 games

Clubs have the following options for assigning referees to their U9-U11 games.
  • One referee and two-club lines man.
  • Three referees.
  • One referee.
**Please note that we no longer allow any club to assign TWO MAN system.

In the event that assignor has assigned 3 referees and one does not show up then the crew must ask for help for a club linesman and one of the two registered referees must step up to be the referee of the match. This incidence MUST be reported to the assignor/coordinator.

National Premier League (NPL)
  • The main change this season is that the NO-ENTRY in the first half and only one re-entry in the second half now extends to ALL AGE GROUPS U14-U19.
  • EVERY NPL match must have an International Walk Out unless due to delay of the previous matches we are running out of time, which in that case, the walk out may be waved.
  • I am very much aware that every season, you MAY be approached by both coaches about waving the substitution rules of no-reentry in the first half.
    Your answer should be NO. These teams are being held to higher standard for playing in this league and they MUST comply with no exceptions.

    International Walk On

    For all NorCal NPL games, the game must start with an International Walk On. Leagues, and possibly LRA, are fined for NPL games that do not start off with this activity. This is an easy activity to do 5-10 minutes BEFORE game start. Confirm with the coaches well before so they are prepared. If the both coaches decide they don't want to do the walk on, that is fine.

    For the basic steps of an International Walk On, click here.

    For a video of how in International Walk On should look, click here.
