Does each player have to play half of every game, or can it be averaged out across the season?

True to one of AYSO’s founding philosophies, Everyone Plays™, every player must play at least 50% of every game. Additionally, it is strongly recommended that no player, play four (4) quarters before all players have played three (3) quarters. The only exception to this rule would be a serious injury that truly prevents the player from participating or if the players arrive to the game after it has begun, in which case the following National Rules and Regulations apply: …if the player arrives in the first quarter, the player must play a minimum of two (2) of the remaining three (3) quarters …if the player arrives during the second or third quarter, the player must play a minimum of one (1) quarter.
