Youth League Rules Posted for 2020

GLOA assigns officials for a number of leagues, these include MAYLA, GMSAA, AMSLL, Newtown Select, and Newtown Rec.  You will find latest league sheets listed on our Youth Rules page .

    • Please note that officials should NOT wear the GHSA patch when officiating non-GHSA games.
    • Similarly, you are not covered by GLOA insurance unless you are assigned by GLOA.
    • Often, officials working youth games wear our GLOA summer shirt and a white hat, please be sure to confirm what you will wear before the game and note that all officials MUST be dressed identically.
    • If you are working with a Youth official, this is an important time to help them learn and improve.  Be sure to model best practices!

Please be sure to confirm the timing rules prior to each contest. Also, please note the rule differences between NFHS and Youth, so please make sure you cover these in your coaches conference prior to the start of a game and confirm the rules.

Timing rules are either 12 minute running quarters or 10 minute running quarters. Again confirm during the coaches meeting.

If you have any questions about any of these rule please email our rules interpreter at [email protected].
