This is actually a topic I am surprised I don't hear more complaints about and wonder if there is any advocacy from the people who supposedly have any authority or involvement in the system that can have a voice in changing this. Is there legitimate concern that kids who will eventually be national team players won't be able to adapt to this if they didn't already have years of experience with the subbing rule in effect? And for the 06s, I fail to see the benefit of subjecting those girls to that rule their first year of academy AND their first year on a full size field (if implemented next year). Boys 12s last year did not for the youngest age group, if we see girls U13 emerge would love to see the same happen for them that we did the boys with the unlimited subbing. Hopefully there is someone that matters in the decision-making process that feels the same way.
