NCCP courses can also be offered if enough interest is received to offer the course. Minimum 10 coaches to run a course.
Philosophy & Goals Mini Soccer A smaller field and less players per team means that each player gets more chances to touch the ball during play. Each session the players have a chance to touch the ball and improve their skills while they the play a game. This is a fun league, no one keeps scores, no one counts goals, or records statistics. “When no one keeps score everyone wins.”
Team lists Once you have your team list it is your responsibility to contact each player on your team. You are the only contact person for your team/players. Rosters can be found using your Coach Login. You may also wish to schedule a parent/team meeting before your first session. If you have trouble contacting a player/family check with Steve Thomas, AFC Office Manager, at email@example.com. If you cannot contact a player or if a player fails to show up please contact the office.

Parent Meeting It is a good idea to start the season with a parent meeting at the beginning of the first practice. At the meeting you can meet the players and the parents. Discuss the goals and expectations for the season and answer any questions coaches may have. Please no snacks at indoor games. Water only permitted on the field as juice and athletic drinks mark the field.
Coach Referees – U6 & U8 Coaches are to referee half a field each, and coaches are allowed on the field during the game to help the children play, during the season. Please be encouraging to all players from both teams. Promote fair play and positive cheer and language on the pitch. Teach as you coach. Please discourage rough play and excessive contact by using a time out at the side line for one rotation of play.
ADSA – Zero Tolerance Policy This type of policy is in place to create a positive atmosphere for our Players and Coaches. Please talk to your parents about their code of conduct at games! And yes...this can happen at U8!

Substitution The Coaches will signal line changes roughly every 3 minutes. Please rotate which player gets the double shift and avoid the temptation to keep your best player on the field at all times. Coaches are allowed on their half of the field only (the half your team is defending). No fans or coaches shall be permitted behind the referee boxes please keep this area clear for the benefit of the players, coaches and referees.
Goals! We don’t keep score at the Tim Bit level A goal is scored when the ball completely crosses over the goal line, on the ground or in the air, and into the Pug Net. Restart the game after a goal with a center kick off from half field. The team that was scored on kicks off after a goal has been scored.
Free Kicks! An infringement of the Laws of the game when the ball is in play, the opposing team is awarded a free kick from where the infraction occurred. All free kicks are indirect. A goal cannot be scored directly from a free kick, must be passed first. Players must be 5 yards from the ball The player that has the free kick, cannot touch the ball a second time A goal cannot be scored directly from a free kick, must be passed first.
Free kick from Sideline When the entire ball has crossed the touch line(marked with cones) on the ground or in the air, there will be an indirect free kick from the sideline in by the opposing team of the player that last touched it. Please let the play be as continuous as possible. A goal cannot be scored directly from a free kick, must touch another player first. Please refrain from excessive whistle use.

You cannot have children that are not registered with ADSA, practice/play with your team as they are not covered by insurance. All players must have shin guards and clean indoor running shoes.
