Procedure for restarts after an injury are as follows:
1) Team with possession of the ball when play is stopped starts play with an indirect free kick. Unless the ball went out of play then we start with the correct restart.
2) If the GK has the ball when there is a stoppage for an injury, the correct restart is indirect free kick for that keepers team, where the keeper possessed the ball. We do not drop the ball for the keeper to pick up nor give the keeper the ball to punt or throw.
3) If there is no clear possession after a stoppage for an injury, then it’s a drop ball between 2 players (one from each team). IN HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER WE DO NOT DROP THE BALL TO ONE PLAYER AND HAVE HIM KICK IT BACK TO THE OTHER TEAM. If a team wants to give the ball to the other team you must have 2 players present (one from each team) at the time of the drop ball.
