2006-2007 Age Group Rules

Click here to see rules for the 2006-2007 seasons.

Clarification: Please note that in the U6 and U8 leagues, ALL starts and restarts (i.e., all kick-offs, goal kicks, corner kicks and free kicks) are to be INDIRECT, meaning that a goal can be scored only if the ball subsequently touches another player other than the player taking the kick before it enters the goal
