New competition rules for 2019

New competition rules for 2019

BDSFA is introducing a number of exciting new changes to the MiniRoo and Junior competitions in 2019.

Coaches

This is a reminder that coaches are not permitted on the field at any time unless the referee calls them on to the field. This rule has been in place for many seasons, and applies for all age groups from U5 up.

The BDSFA recommends that all coaches remain in the one position during the course of a game (e.g. the “technical area” in the older competitions). This is to help players quickly identify where their coach’s instructions are coming from.

Spectators

Spectators are reminded that they should maintain a three metre distance from the sideline, and should never gather behind the goals. The BDSFA also recommends that coaches and reserves be seated on the opposite side of the field to spectators. We appreciate the assistance and support of parents and spectators in complying with these BDSFA regulations in the 2019 season.

Junior competition

Mixed competitions up to U16

Girls no longer have to move to the girls-only competition from U13 onwards. They can now register to play in the Saturday competition up to and including U16. Girls are also able to register for both Saturday and Sunday teams if they wish, and be eligible to play finals for both teams provided they play at least 60% of the games for their nominated second team (for example, a girl can play in both U13 Mixed on Saturday and U14 Girls on Sunday).

MiniRoos

U5 to U7

Matches are capped at 15 minutes per half for U5 and U6, and 20 minutes per half for U7

U8

While offside is not enforced, it is the responsibility of coaches to encourage their players to not stay in offside positions

U9

  • Now 9-a-side instead of 7-a-side
  • Plays on the U10-sized field, with the bigger U10 goals
  • Foul throws will be enforced and will be penalised by a throw in being given to the opposition
  • While offside is not enforced, it is the responsibility of coaches to encourage their players to not stay in offside positions

U10

  • Offside will be enforced
  • Foul throws will be enforced and will be penalised by a throw in being given to the opposition

U11

BDSFA now recommends that U11 players capable of playing higher up play in the U12 competition. In particular, BDSFA recommends that any U10 player from Kookaburra, Shark, Echidna or Kangaroo teams move straight to U12. U11 is now reserved for players that need an extra year of modified football for their development.

Kings Langley does not intend to field an U11 team in 2019 unless there are higher than expected registrations for this age group.

U11 playing regulations are the same as U10.
