** While there is no specific guarantee of playing time for age groups 12U-19U, coaches should attempt to provide play time opportunities appropriate to the level of competition allowing for the player to play in each half of each game, provided that the player has been responsible in attending practices, attitude, effort, and has no disciplinary issues. Playing time refers for purposes here in this policy to rostered players for any given game.
