Players born in 2014 and 2015


To provide a player-centered program that encourages each player to develop to the best of their ability, at their own pace, in a fun and safe learning environment. This will be done with a focus on individual development and small-sided games.

Free Kicks

There will be indirect and direct free kicks.

- Direct - A player can score straight from the kick

- Indirect - The ball must hit another player before entering the goal for it to stand as a goal.

- The referee will indicate if the free kick is direct or indirect before the player takes the kick.

Penalty Kicks

- Penalty kicks will be taken from the penalty spot by a player from the attacking team.

- The referee determines when a penalty kick is given.

Corner Kicks

- Restart when the ball goes ovthe er goal line (end line) last touched by a defending player;
- Ball is in play when it is kicked and clearly moves; goal may be scored directly from a corner kick


- There are offsides

- The playout line will be used to denote where offside offenses can be called. Players
cannot be penalized for an offside offense between the halfway line and the build out line.


- When an improper throw-in is taken the other team is given the ball and throw-in is taken by that team.  (some referees early in the season my allow a second attempt in an effort to teach players the game though this is not universally practiced)
- A goal cannot be scored directly from a throw-in.

Goal Kicks

- Ball is in play when a receiving team player touches the ball from the kick.
- If any player on either team touches the ball before it leaves the penalty area, the goal kick is retaken.

Build Out Area Rules
Here is a link to the SAY Rules for the Build Out Area
Build Out Rules

- A Build Out line is added to the field, it is equidistant between the penalty area line and halfway line
- Once the opposing team is behind the build out line, the goalkeeper can pass, throw or roll the
ball into play (punts and drop kicks are not allowed).
- Once the receiving player touches the ball the opposing team can cross the build out line and play resumes as normal
- If a goalkeeper punts or drop kicks the ball, the referee should stop play, give the ball back to the goalkeeper and explain they can’t punt the ball

- The build out line will also be used to denote where offside offenses can be called. Players
cannot be penalized for an offside offense between the halfway line and the build out line.

Coaches are advised to talk to the referee and the opposing coach before the game and discuss how the referee will apply the rules.  There is some variation in the application of the rule governing when the ball is in play following after a goal kick or when the keeper plays the ball after having it in his/her possession.
