USSF SUBSTITUTION PROCEDURE:
 
Remember the substitule only enters the field after the player being replaced has left and after receiving a signal from the referee. The substitute only enters the field of play at the half way line (NOT FROM BENCH) and during a stoppage in the match. The referee must whistle to restart play after a substitution.
 
MAINE STATE PREMIER LEAGUE ON SUBSTITUTIONS.
 
Substitutions may be made, with the consent of the referee, at any stoppage of play. There
is no limit on the re-entry of a substituted player into the game for Under-12 through Under-18 age divisions. The goal of Soccer Maine is to use the Maine State Premier League as an opportunity to develop all of the players on the roster. Coaches are encouraged to group substitutions to minimize stoppages of play either by having several
players from their own team enter together rather than consecutively several minutes apart,
or by having substitutes ready to enter at the same time as substitutes from the opposing team.
