U8
  • Teams are to be divided by ability (A/B)
  • Rotate the goalie each quarter, minimum of 2 per field per game
  • No punting by goalies in U8 (to prevent ping pong back and forth between the goalies. Having the goalie throw the ball out will help the team learn to get open to receive the ball.)
  • Build out line rules apply, with the build out line at midfield.  All attackers must move back behind the build out line after the keeper makes a save and/or on goal kicks.  Players must remain behind the build out line until the ball is touched by a teammate of the goal keeper. 
  • Helmets (provided by the club) must be worn by goal keepers.
U10
  • Rotate the goalie each half at a minimum, at least 2 per game
  • U10 games are 25 min halves.  Games will have an one hour and fifteen minute time slot.
  • Build out line rules apply (with dotted lines marked on the field) and
  • NO PUNTING by goalies.  
  • All attackers must move back behind the build out line after the keeper makes a save and/or on goal kicks.  Players must remain behind the build out line until the ball is touched by a teammate of the goal keeper. 
  • Substitutions:  Permitted during any stoppage of play including kick-offs, goal kicks, corner kicks, throw-ins, quarter/half-time breaks and injuries.
  • DIRECT vs. INDIRECT kicks:  All free kicks for U6 and U8 will be DIRECT kicks.  INDIRECT kicks are introduced for the U10 age group.
  • Off-sides:  Applicable to U10 only. Offsides rules apply starting at the build out line.
  • Passing back to goalie rule:  the goalie is not permitted to handle a ball that has been intentionally passed back to him by his own teammate. He may trap and kick the ball, but cannot pick it up with his hands. The penalty is a free kick near the box.
  • Helmets (provided by the club) must be worn by goal keepers.
