II. Registration and Rostering: Participants and Teams
M. Substitute Goalkeepers.
A team may pick up a substitute goalie from within its own Association or District if it does not already have a spare goalie registered. For a non-National bound category, the substitute goalie must be registered in the current season on a team of equal or lower age classification and equal or lower team classification. For the National bound category, the substitute goalie must be registered in the current season on a lower classification team. A substitute goalie, under such circumstances, may be used only in the case of an injury to the regular goalie. If a team elects this method for a substitute goalie, the team may have only nineteen (19) players registered at any time so as not to exceed the maximum number of players allowed.
