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 U11-U12 and a maximum of 26 players for U13-U19.

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- Avondale Dunaire Park, DeKalb School of the Arts, or Windsor Parkway. Practices will start Saturday, June 2nd 2018, for U12 teams, Saturday June 9th 2018 for U14/U15 teams. 

GAMES

The season will consist of 6-12 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 9 other Super-Y programs in Georgia, so some away games could be against those local opponents.

GAME LENGTH

U11-12: 2 x 30 mins, U13/U14: 2 x 35 mins, U15-U16:  2 x 40 mins, U17-U19: 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 U11-U12, unlimited substitutions are permitted throughout the regular season and Finals.

COACHING STAFF

Coaching Staff will be selected by the DDYSC Director of Coaching & SYL Technical Director.  DDYSC will operate with an “open door coaching policy”, allowing coaches from other clubs to train DDYSC Super Y Teams.
