Rule Changes (Fall, 2023)

Revised: Sep 6, 2023

The rules for the Fall, 2023 soccer season remain the same as for the Spring, 2023 season.

Two items of interest regarding the number of field players. First, the number of field players includes the goalkeeper; e.g., “9 per side” means “8 field players plus one goalkeeper.” (This is just an example; ages 4-6 do not have goalkeepers at all.) Second, the number of players on the field change per season based on team roster sizes, and sometimes, they have to be changed on the spot to get things rolling on game day. See “Seasonal Controls” (below) for details.

  • Seasonal Controls: Ball sizes, number of players, game duration, for each age group.
  • Rules: Comprehensive rulebook for the soccer program.
