Coaches must observe ALL rules in the Competition Guide
Specifically, the following rules have been disregarded at the whim of coaches and at the discretion of referees in the past:
1.     All games consist of 4 QUARTERS
·         Games CANNOT BE BROKEN UP into two halves, even if both coaches agree
·         The referee cannot allow it
2.    There is NO FREE SUBSTITUTION
·         Unlike travel soccer, players cannot be substituted during specific stoppages during a game.
The referee cannot allow this even if both coaches agree.
