If the ball hits a players hand or arm while it is in a natural position (in the opinion of the referee), a handling offense may not be called.
Clarification: "Advantage" is played when the referee allows play to continue after a foul because it is more advantageous to the fouled team to let play continue, if "advantage" doesn't play in favor of the fouled team, the foul may be called a few seconds 'late' and played from the point of the foul. 'Advantage' is used in the opinion of the referee and is mostly used in higher divisions as the skill of the players factor into the call, the "no-call" may work in your favor, so please hold your commentary toward the referee. Please be respectful of referee decisions and set a good example for the young players around you. This is recreational soccer and our goal is to have fun.
U4, U5, U6 Divisions:
There are no goalkeepers or 'goaltending' sweepers/defenders in the U4, U5, and U6 age groups.
U4 AND U5- COACHES ALLOWED ON FIELD, coaches should be assisting with their backs to the center circle, at no time should a coach take an 'assisting' position in front of his/her own team's goal. No score is officially kept for U4, U5, U6, and U8 age groups, so please encourage good sportsmanship and fair play. U6 coaches ARE NOT allowed on the field unless the referee beckons you. U4 and U5 age groups will use "kick-ins", U6 and above will use "throw-ins" for balls played over the touch line.
U8 and U10 are playing 9v9 (8 field players + 1 goalkeeper)
U8 and U10 divisions will utilize build-out lines. Build out lines are NEW to US Youth Soccer. This means no punting in these age groups, the goalkeeper shall make a purposeful pass or hand distribution to a teammate once the opposition has retreated behind the build out line. Once the ball is in play, the opposition may cross the build out line, the goalkeeper does not have to wait for the team to retreat to put the ball into play, however once the ball is in play, the opposition may play the ball.
Ball size clarification, in accordinance with USSF, FYSA, and US Youth Soccer rules, the ball size for U8 is officially #3.
The ball size for U12 is size 4. Ball size for U16 is size 5.
Playoffs will occur for U10, U12, U16 age groups on Saturday March, 5, 2016.
Due to the # of U10 teams, a double-header will occur on Saturday February 27, 2016 to insure all teams play each other and even # of times for playoff seeding.
