3e) If there are circumstances that teams will be short players (graduations/ school trip/holidays)please contact the CYS office and the Technical Director will make arrangements on behalf of the team.

CYS is working closely with The City Of Cambridge to provide marked areas close to halfway line that would be called a “Technical Area”.

CYS hopes to have this done to all SSG and House League Fields before the season starts

• A typical technical area extends 1 -2 m (1 -2 yd.) on either side of the designated seated area and extends forward up to a distance of 2 -3 m (2 - 3yd) from the touch line should space allow.

• The coach and assistant coach(s) must remain within the confines of the technical area except in special circumstances, for example if they need to enter the field of play, with the referee’s permission, to assess an injured player.

• The coach and other occupants of the technical area must behave in a responsible manner.

• A Technical area prevents Coaches from going behind the goal or “patrolling up and down the length of the sideline.

It also allows the referee the best opportunity to observe the substitutions of players.
