TEAM SELECTION

All teams are selected via a coaching committee, which is comprimised of all staff coaches for the Super Y teams.

ROSTERS

Each team will select active roster players and non-active roster players with a maximum of 20 roster players for U10-U11 and a maximum of 26 players for U12-U16.

ACTIVE VS NON-ACTIVE PLAYERS

An Active roster player is expected to attend all training and matches. Active rosters players should plan to travel and dress for games.

A Non-Active player is expected to attend all training.  In the event an active roster player is unavailable, a non-active roster player will be selected based on merit to fill the roster spot.

TRAINING

Training will be two days a week for 1.5 hours, times to be determined.  Practices will be held at one of our DDY locations- Pattillo Park, Avondale Dunaire Park, Indian Creek Elementary School or Windsor Parkway. Practices will start middle to late May 2018, or early June 2018 once players have completed their spring season duties. 

GAMES

The season will consist of 8-12 games, depending on league instructions.  Half of the games are played at home at a DDY location and the other half away. This is a regional league; therefore, travel to regional areas of the Southeast should be expected. However, there are 7 other Super-Y programs in Georgia, so some away games could be against those local opponents.

GAME LENGTH

U10-12: 2 x 30 mins, U13/U14: 2 x 35 mins, U15-U16:  2 x 40 mins, U18: 2 x 45 mins.

THE SUPER Y LEAGUE NORTH AMERICAN FINALS WILL TAKE PLACE IN DECEMBER FOLLOWING THE REGULAR SEASON.

SUBSTITUTION RULE

A team may have a max number of eligible players for games.  A player may be substituted once in the first half. Once the player has been substituted, the player may not re-enter the game until the second half. Once a player is substituted in the second half, they MAY re-enter the game only once during the rest of the regulation play. The total number of substitutions per half shall not exceed seven which shall not be altered for injury.

For age groups U10-U13, unlimited substitutions are permitted throughout the regular season and Finals.

COACHING STAFF

Coaching Staff will be selected by the DDYSC Director of Coaching.   DDYSC will operate with an “open door coaching policy”, allowing coaches from other clubs to train DDYSC Super Y Teams.  Unless approved by DDYSC DOC, current DDYSC staff coaches are prohibited from coaching Super-Y teams in their current age/gender group.

ANTI - RECRUITING

DDYSC Super Y Teams, Coaches, Parents, and Players will adhere to a strict “No Recruiting” policy. This policy will be enforced via zero tolerance.
