UMPIRE - both appropriately dressed - parents and interchange players may be used.

All matches shall be played under the rules of football as adopted by the South Australian National Football League.

The exception being in the matters of times off and replacement of players

The time off is only allowed where there is a prolonged delay - the Umpire is the sole judge of this.

The Field Umpire has the right to overrule any decisions of the Goal Umpire.

A player being replaced must be taken off and the replacement player put on through the same gateway. Gateways to be level with the centre square and opposite to each other. The gateway to be 20 metres. This rule is to apply to all secondary grades. An injured player may be taken off at any point, but the replacement player must go on through the gateway.

The Umpire has the power to send a player off whom he considers guilty of a reportable offence.

The minimum time the player will be off the field is the remainder of the quarter, plus the next quarter.

If a player is sent from the ground the Umpire must complete an ISSA Report Form and give it to the player’s coach.

The player’s coach is required to present it to his Principal for appropriate action.

A copy of the SAAS form with the results of the action taken, is to be sent to the opposing School’s Principal and to the Executive Officer.

A player who utters an audible obscenity directed to an umpire/player/official/spectator is immediately sent off the field for the remainder of the quarter and the following quarter. This will automatically result in a report.

A player who utters an audible obscenity in frustration is given a warning - a 25 metre penalty will result. A subsequent offence will result in a send off and a report.

If a player utters an audible obscenity in frustration when no mark or free kick is being paid – a warning is given and a free kick will be paid against that player. No 25 metre penalty will result in this circumstance.

Team Composition

Teams may enter sides with either 18 or 15 players.

Teams playing 18 per side may have up to 7 interchange players.

Teams playing less than 18 players have the right to have a maximum of 2 reserves.

Where schools with 18 players are programmed against schools with 15 players the lesser number becomes the game number for the day. Unless prior arrangement has been reached.

Where teams have only 15 players there will be permitted only three players in the square for centre bounces.

All players are required to wear numbers. Schools are asked to ensure as much as possible that this occurs.
