RULES

The Recreational Soccer program follows a combination of FIFA and USYS rules for United States Youth Soccer with minor modification. The main objective is to ensure safety of our players and maximize enjoyment of the game.

Important Rule Changes

  • There is NO PUNTING in any recreational games. If a goal keeper does punt the ball, an indirect free kick will be awarded to the opposing team on the top of the penalty box.
  • There is NO HEADING in any recreational games. If a player intentionally heads the ball, an indirect free kick will be awarded to the opposing team at the spot of the header.
  • Kickoffs may go in any direction, but the player taking the kickoff is only allowed one touch. The player taking the kickoff may not dribble the ball.
