Non-Players on Team Bench There have been a few questions this year regarding the number of non-players (coaches, scorekeepers etc.) that may be on a team bench during MAISL competition. The answer is three (3) only 2 of which may be coaches. That means if you are an 8th Grade Team you may have an 8th Grade student on the bench as your designated scorekeeper (this may be due to illness, injury, academic probation or just an interested student who is the Team Manager) otherwise the 3rd adult most be actively keeping the team scorebook. Please keep in mind that MAISL officials (referees and/or scorekeepers) have the right to question the number of non-players on a team bench and may ask that some individuals remove themselves from the bench area. "Official" team scorekeepers must be on the team bench
