Recreational Playing Rules
Coaches, Please check the referee section for the up dated rules for fall 2007.

Parents, Please sit on the opposite side of the field, not by the bench.



*************** SPECIAL RULE APPLYING TO U6 - U8 - U10 - U12 - U14 ***************

Adding a player, if you are down by 3 or more goals, you have the option to add a player or ask the coach to pull a player. You may keep adding players until you are within 2 goals. The purpose of this rule is simple. We are here to ENCOURAGE not discourage.

************************************************************************************




U4 Age Bracket

Purpose for this bracket is to promote the fitness and coordination of young children. We do not pick future soccer stars at this age. All children are stars, we are here to help them find their shinning light.

*4 players per team on the field
*#3 ball should be used
*4 periods of 6 minutes each, 5 minute halftime
*We ask that coaches start to get children to understand the concept of a field of play. In other words, when they go off the field of play we want them to restart at the touch line where they left the field. Some parents, in this bracket, may kick the ball back into play. Do not worry about it, let the game continue.


U4 Special Rules

*No Goalies. When a goal is scored restart of game is from the center point.
*When game is stopped due to ball out of play it should be restarted, from the point it left the field, with a kick. Opponents should be on their own side of the field.





U6 Age Bracket

Purpose for this bracket is to promote the fitness and coordination Purpose for this bracket is to promote the fitness and coordination of young children. We do not pick future stars at this age. All children are stars, we are here to help them find their shinning light. Another important area of instruction is teaching the parents that they are there to encourage the children but they are not part of the game.
*6 players per team on the field
*#3 ball should be used
*4 periods of 8 minutes each, 5 minute halftime
*We ask that coaches and referees start to get children to understand the concept of a field of play. In other words, when they go off the field of play we want them to restart at the touch line where they left the field. Some parents, in this bracket, may kick the ball back into play. Get the ball and restart the game from the point it left the field.


U6 Special Rules

*Goalies. A parent/coach is encouraged to be down with the goalie. On the field but out of the play is fine.
*No direct kicks therefore no penalty kicks.
*Goal kick can be taken anywhere inside the penalty box.
*Goal kick-opponent has to be at half way line.
*Unlimited throw-ins but referee has right to ask for someone else to take it. (Sorry no Kick-ins)
*On kick off, same person can't touch the ball twice and the ball must go forward.



Adding a player, if you are down by 3 or more goals, you have the option to add a player or ask the coach to pull a player. The purpose of this rule is simple. We are here to ENCOURAGE not discourage.

U8 Age Bracket


*7 players per team on the field
*#3 ball should be used
*4 periods of 10 minutes each, 5 minute halftime
*At this age children and parents should be familiar with the field of play. What we are introducing for these players is the idea of a controlled game; i.e. The Referee.
*Players, Parents, and coaches need to understand that without referees our game stops. That is, after U6's we can no longer control the situation (game).
*Coaches must enforce referee respect. This respect comes from all 3 areas; Coaches, Players, and Parents. If the coach sets a good example the players will follow. The parents may need to have their position defined to them; cheer for the kids and leave the referees alone.
*Parents must be instructed to sit on the field opposite the players and be at least 5 feet from the touch line.
*Players should begin learning positions.
*Players should be encouraged to use both feet.
*Players should begin learning how to trap the ball.
*Proper throw-in must be taught.

U8 Special Rules


*No direct kicks therefore no penalty kicks
*Goal kick can be taken anywhere inside the penalty box.
*Goal kick-opponent has to be at half way line.
*Unlimited throw-ins but refereee has the right to ask for someone else to take it.
*No offsides but no cherry picking either.
*On kick off same person cannot touch the ball twice and the ball must go forward.
*Each team has the right to have a parent beside the goal, but off the playing field, to assist the goalie


.



U10 Age Bracket


At this age children and parents are familiar with the field of play and they are familiar with the referees. What we are introducing is the concept of OFF-SIDES and game time substitutions. Offsides is possibly the most misunderstood rule in soccer. For a detailed explanation of offsides, please see a referee.

*7 players per team on the field
*#4 ball should be used
*2 periods of 20 minutes each, 5 minute halftime

U10 Special Rules


*Throw-ins. If a throw in is bad the team with the throw in gets 1 more chance to get it right. In other words, a maximum of 2 throw-ins for 1 out of play restart.

*#4 ball should be used
*2 periods of 25 minutes each, 5 minute halftime
