Mixed Rules

Mixed games are all about having fun. It is also in each player’s interest and that of the sport itself to improve the standard of play. It is important that the all round handling of the ball improves during the season and the rules governing the “held” ball and two touches will be as for last season. Please ask any referee or a member of the JVA executive should you wish to clarify any point relating to these two rules.

1. Team Registration

a. A team must register at least eight members. There is no limit to the number of players in a squad. A squad can be made up of both league and non-league players.
