* Match Length
- U13 U14 and U15 two 40-minute halves with 10-minute halftime
- U16, U17 and U19 two 45-minute halves with a 15-minute halftime

* Substitutions
- All matches will have a maximum of seven (7) substitutes per half with no re- entry per half
- Teams can use a maximum of five (5) moments per match for subs with halftime NOT classified as a moment
- Substitutions are allowed at any stoppage

* Head Injury Substitution
- A player who is suspected to have suffered a head injury may be temporarily substituted while being evaluated
- The temporary substitution for the evaluation of the concussion/head injury will not count against the team’s total number of allowed substitutions
- If the player is deemed by the HCP or ATC to not have suffered a concussion, the player may re-enter the game at any stoppage of play and must replace the original substitute; this head injury evaluation substitution will not count as a used substitution
- Furthermore, the temporary substitute will be able to re-enter the game at a later time
- If the player is not cleared to return to play by the HCP or ATC, the replacement player will no longer be considered a temporary substitution and the team will be charged a substitution
- Any misconducts issued to the temporary substitute will count for the remainder of the game
