Question

Local YMCA legaue decided to use four 10 minute quarters rather than two 20 minute halves to let more kids play without having to use lots of substituions during play. I'm officiating a few games and overseeing and evaluating the kids on all the fields. I've never used this system before. How do you resume play in the 2nd and 4th periods? KO, GK, DB, Throw In from midfield? What's the procedure? Thanks for the information. RR

Our local rec program uses quarters. The 2nd and 4th period of play is restarted by the proper restart resulting from however play was stopped "near" the "determined" time.

If the YMCA league is using NFHS rules, the teams would change goals and the restart would be a kick off by the team would did not kick off to start the previous period.

Actually they use FIFA rules with exceptions to fit the ages age and local situation. They have been doing it the way that Ref2 was talking about, but I was looking to see how others did it. I probably wouldn't mind that way of doing it if the guy who implemented the system wasn't such a pompous and pouty jerk. He acts like such an idiot and has no people skills. He's the reason I had to give the new kids instructions on how to be polite and patient while listening to a fool.

Our Over-30, 40, and 50 leagues use quarters. The teams only switch ends at halftime, and the same team kicks off twice in the same half.

Some of our local junior high schools have used four quarters and I have reffed a few games. In the first few, they changed halves after each quarter and had same team KO for first two quarters and other team KO for second two quarters. I found it very confusing to officiate the game when they changed halves after each quarter, so I requested they only change at half time and they didn't have any issue with it. Made my life a bit easier.

Our local "Intructional" & "PreInstructional" [U8, near as I can tell] divisions use quarters: restarts are KO: AA/BB; switch goals at the half.

This seems to be the norm. The leauges I've been working at the new compex nearby all use that format. Thanks for the info.
