NCAAW -- Timer

I have been asked to time for NCAAW soccer games this fall (having previously done Football, Volleyball, Basketball, etc).

Three specific questions, and a general one:

1) When are subs allowed (and am I supposed to sound a horn)? The coach told me one thing before the last game, but what he told me and what the refs allowed weren't the same thing.

2) Am I supposed to verbally count the last ten seconds over the speakers?

3) I was told that the visiting team can choose whether half-time is 10 or 15 minutes. What's the default if I'm not told which it is?

4) What else do I need to know?

I played, and have not officiated soccer, so maybe someone will come on and correct any errors.

Going off of memory:

On their own throwin, own corner kick, any goal kick, following a goal, halftime and intermissions before overtimes. A stoppage for an injured player can result in a substitution. A cautioned player may be substituted following the caution. Any time only one team is allowed to "initiate" a substitute, the opposing team may also substitute up to an equal number of players.
These may only be NCCAM, but: Additionally, a player who comes off in the first half may not participate until the second half. A player who comes off in the second half may come back on, but may not participate after coming off a second time.
I haven't heard a horn in my games, but, in general, I'd listen to the referee.
Someone will have to give any restrictions following a team having a player sent off.


2) Am I supposed to verbally count the last ten seconds over the speakers?

I believe so, although it isn't always followed, or necessary, imo.

3) I was told that the visiting team can choose whether half-time is 10 or 15 minutes. What's the default if I'm not told which it is?

My advice: ask the referee (or 10 so you can go home sooner).

4) What else do I need to know?

Substitutions in the final five minutes of the second half by the team leading result in a stoppage.
Good luck.

1) Thanks, that's about what we did (although there was some discussion whether the cautioned player "may" be substituted or "must" be substituted, and I don't think there are any restrictions on the number of times a player may sub / be subbed for)

4) That didn't seem to be true, although the match was a blow-out, so maybe no one wanted to stop the clock.
