Additional Guidelines

  1. Games must start and end on time: For example, in U8, games start on the hour and must end at 50 minutes past the hour. Ex: A 9 am game ends at 9:50 am. If the prior game ends late because of an injury, your game will be cut short. Ideally, each of the periods should be shortened so that you still have relatively equal breaks and playing time.
  2. Game Lengths:
    1. U6: 60 minutes combined practice and game.
    2. U8: 50 minutes. Each period is about 10 minutes. Breaks should be under a minute; half-time should be under 5 minutes.
    3. U10: 50 minutes. Each period is about 10 minutes. Breaks should be under a minute; half-time should be under 5 minutes.
    4. U12: 50 minutes. Each period is about 10 minutes. Breaks should be under a minute; half-time should be under 5 minutes.
    5. U14: Two 30 minute halves. Each period is about 15 minutes. Breaks should be under a minute; half-time should be about 5 minutes.
  3. Substitution Policy: Players must play a minimum of two periods per game and no player can play four periods until everyone has played three. This is very important! Teams can lose points in the standings for failure to abide by the substitution policy.
  4. Goalkeeper Rules:
    1. U6: None
    2. U8: No player should play more than one period as goalkeeper.
    3. U10: No player can play goalkeeper for more than two periods and must play one period in the field.
    4. U12: No player can play goalkeeper for more than three periods and must play one period in the field.
    5. U14: No limitations.
  5. Players:
    1. U6: 4 v 4
    2. U8: 6 v 6
    3. U10: 7 v 7
    4. U12: 9 v 9
    5. U14: 11 v 11
  6. Spectators: All parents and spectators must be positioned to the left of the midway line. This prevents any collisions with/from the Assistant Referee. In addition, no spectators are allowed behind the goal or goal line. It is the responsibility of each coach to manage their team’s spectators.
  7. There are no pets allowed on school grounds. We know your pet is a valued member of the family. Unfortunately, our permits do not allow for animals. The only exceptions are Seeing Eye Dogs and Law Enforcement canines.
  8. Youth Referees: There is a zero tolerance policy for speaking in a critical fashion with our youth volunteers. A coach or spectator should only communicate in a positive way (thank and compliment). They should not express any disagreement, dissatisfaction, or critique with the performance of a youth referee. If this happens, the parent, spectator, or coach will be asked to leave the field.
