Number of Players • Regulation AYSO matches (U-14+) have a maximum of 11 players-a-side and a minimum of 7. • U-12 and younger play short-sided games. • If a team has fewer than the maximum number of players, the coach from the full-sided team may lend one or more players to the other team
Starting the Game Just prior to kick-off check that… • You have the line-up cards, your whistle, your watch, red & yellow cards and pen/pencil • Ball is in the center circle • Count the players • AR’s/linemen are ready and in position • Verify both goalkeepers are ready • Signal (whistle) for kick to be taken • Start watch
The Kick Off • Where: At mark in the Center Circle • When: • At start of game, • Start of 2nd half, and • After each goal scored
Kick Off Procedure • All players must be in their own half • Players from both teams may stand on Half-way Line • Opponents away from ball • 8 yards for U-9 & U-10, 10 yards for U-11 and above • Standing on Center Circle Line is OK • Ball stationary • Referee signal • Typically by whistling • Ball in play when kicked and moves forward • If beginning of 1st or 2nd half, clock starts when ball is put into play
Improper Kick Offs • Retake If Not Done Correctly: • Ball kicked backwards • Player encroaches prior to kick • Examples: a player from either team crosses halfway line, or a player from non-kicking team enters center circle prior to kick-off • Play stopped at referee’s discretion • Indirect Free Kick to opposing team if played twice by same player • This is the “Double Touch” rule which applies to all restarts except the dropped ball
Time Keeping • Referee is sole timekeeper • AR may be used as a backup timekeeper. • Halves are timed • Time officially starts at the opening kick-off when ball is kicked and moves forward • No timeouts • When time runs out in the half, blow whistle • 2x to end half, 3x to end game • Play stops at that point in time
Time Keeping (con’t) • Substitution break called approximately midway through the half • In Region 1447, clock keeps running through the substitution break. • Our games run in a tight series throughout the day on Saturday. Only in rare instances should time be added, and if justified, only a few minutes at most. • AYSO National policy: Stoppage time is added for substitutions

AYSO Substitutions • In accordance with the AYSO National Rules and Regulations there are 4 regular substitution opportunities: • Midway through the first half • At half time • Midway through the second half • For an injured player • There are NO free substitutions in AYSO
AYSO Substitutions (con’t) • Look for substitution opportunities when the ball goes out of play • Throw-ins, goal kicks, and prior to kick-offs are ideal • Late arriving players must play at least: • Two quarters if they arrive in 1st Qtr. • One quarter if they arrive in 2nd or 3rd Qtr.
Stoppage of Play for Injuries If a player gets injured… • The referee may stop play immediately or at anytime • If bleeding or serious injury, the player must leave the field. • Referee should beckon the coach on to the field to attend to injured player • The team may opt to either substitute immediately or play short (provided at or above minimum # of players) • Substitute should wait to enter once the injured player has exited the field of play
OUT Ball In and Out of Play Two ways for the ball to be out of play: • When the referee stops play (i.e. whistles) • When the ball leaves the field of play • All of the ball goes completely beyond the outer edge of the touch line or goal line The ball is in play at all other times
Ball In and Out of Play (con’t) • The ball is still in play even when it : • Rebounds off the goal post, cross bar or corner flag back onto the field • Touches the referee or the AR (provided the ball has not left the field of play) • The ball’s position determines whether it is in or out of play, not the player’s position. • Whistle Not normally needed when ball goes out of play
Method of Scoring A goal is scored when the whole of the ball passes over the goal line, between the goalposts and under the crossbar. • Assumes that no infringement of the Laws of the Game has been committed previously by the team scoring the goal. • Referee signals by pointing toward the center circle (the restart is a kick-off) Goal Scored/Not Scored
When to Use the Whistle When to Whistle: • To start or restart play … • At kick-offs • After a substitution break to signal restart of game • To stop play … • For a foul or infraction • Due to an interruption from an outside event or injury • For a substitution break • To end the half or the game • To get player’s attention
When the Whistle Isn’t Needed Whistle Not Necessary for: • Normal ball-out-of-play situations (ball over touch line or goal line) • Restarting play prior to that restart • Exception is restart after sub-break • After a goal is scored

Restarts Eight restarts in soccer • Kick Off (KO) • Throw In (TI) • Goal Kick (GK) • Corner Kick (CK) • Dropped Ball (DB) • Direct Free Kick (DFK) • Indirect Free Kick (IFK) • Penalty Kick (PK)
Throw-Ins A throw-in is taken to restart the game after the ball goes out of play over the touch line. • Awarded to the opponents of the team who last touched the ball. • May be taken by any player on that team, including the goalkeeper • Referee signals by pointing in the direction of attack for the team getting the throw-in
Throw-ins: Proper Location • Taken from the approximate point where the ball crossed the touch line • No more than 1 yard either way along touch line • Throw-ins about to be taken more than a yard from this point can be managed by referee prior to the throw • All opponents must be at least 2 yards from the thrower until the ball is in play
TOUCH LINE Legal Throw-In Requirements • Face the field of play • Have part of each foot touching the ground, either on or behind the touch line • Use both hands to deliver the ball from behind and over the head. • Position of feet important, but only at the moment of release For a legal throw-in the thrower must…
Throw-In Specifics (con’t) • Once the ball is in play the thrower may not touch it a second time until it has touched another player. • If so, it results in a IFK for the opponents at the spot of the second touch. DFK if it was touched with the hands (free kicks to be covered later) • A goal may not be scored directly from a throw-in.
Goal Kicks When the ball leaves the field over the goal line, last touched by an attacker, and does not score a goal, the restart is a goal kick • Referee signals by pointing toward the goal area.
Goal Kick Ball Placement • The defending team may place the ball anywhere in the goal area, including on its boundary lines • Note: This also applies to free kicks by defenders
Goal Kick Specifics • Opponents of the kicker must move outside the penalty area. • Ball must be stationary at the time of kick • The ball is in play when it is kicked directly out of the penalty area without being touched or played by any other player • A goal may be scored directly from a goal kick, but only against the opponents, i.e. no own goals on goal kicks
Goal Kicks - Infringements • If anyone plays the ball or the kicker kicks the ball again before it leaves the penalty area, the kick has not been properly taken and must be retaken. • The ball was never put into play! It is like the kick did not happen! • After the ball leaves the penalty area the kicker may still not touch the ball a second time until it has touched another player. • Results in an IFK for the opponents at the spot of the second touch
