GAME RULES

1. UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT

a. Player equipment must include a jersey (with a unique number), shorts, socks, and suitable footwear (front stud/cleat is deemed dangerous and not permissible). Metal cleats are not permitted. All shirts must have clearly legible numbers on back (or the original number must be clearly visible through the pinnie) with no duplicate numbers. Players will be allowed to wear sweat clothes under their uniforms only if sweat clothes match the colors submitted to league.

b. Shin guards are mandatory safety equipment to be always worn while on the field.

c. A player must not use equipment or wear anything which is dangerous. This includes all jewelry (i.e. earrings, finger rings, barrettes of any type, wrist watches, wrist chains, neck chains, rubber bands, etc.). Using tape to cover jewelry is not permitted – specifically earrings.

d. CYSL recognizes that there may be items that a player and their family deem necessary to wear, even during soccer activities, for medical, religious, or culture reasons that may be exempt for those reasons. As these items may be a safety concern, they need to be properly secured and protected. Players may not be allowed to play wearing these items if the opinion of the referee that they remain dangerous.

e. Players with plaster/fiberglass casts or hard splints (even if padded), cannot play – even with the permission of a parent or medical approval. 

2. ROSTERS/LANYARDS

a. NO ROSTERS REQUIRED.

b. Teams must have coaches that have completed the Mass Youth Credentials requirements to be awarded a lanyard at all games in the fall and spring. The lanyard is an indication that the coach is registered and has completed all required CORI and adult registration training requirements. All team officials on the team sideline during the game must display by wearing their credentials during the game.

3. SUBSTITUTIONS

a. Substitutions may be made at the following times with permission of the referee:

  • On a throw-in, the team with possession may substitute unlimited, and if they choose to sub, then the defending team may substitute players.
  • After a goal, prior to a goal kick, prior to the start of the 2nd half by either team.
  • If an injured player(s) is substituted, then the opposing team may sub on a 1 for 1 basis.
  • Any player who is bleeding must be substituted immediately and may return only when bandaged. 

b. Substitute players waiting to enter the game should wait on their own half of the field at the midfield line.  All substituted players must enter and exit the field at the halfway line between the technical areas.

3. FOULS AND MISCONDUCTS

a. In a match designated as no heading, if in the opinion of the referee, a player deliberately heads or attempts to head the ball, an indirect free kick is awarded to the opposing team.

b. Slide tackling follows IFAB rules.  It is a legal move but discouraged at the younger ages as it is extremely difficult to do without fouling the opponent until mastering body control.  Often, the slide tackle will be deemed dangerous by the referee and will draw sanctions.

c. A player receiving a Yellow Card must be substituted but may reenter the game. If the player’s team has no substitutes, his/her team will play short-handed until the next substitution opportunity. This rule is not intended to cause a game forfeit, if the yellow-carded team falls below the minimum number of players, the game will continue.

4. GRADE 3 and 4 SPECIFIC RULES

A. GOALIE DISTRIBUTION

An indirect free kick shall be awarded to the opposing team when, a goalkeeper handles the ball within his/her penalty area and throws, punts, or kicks the ball across midfield without making contact with the goalkeepers’ side of the field or being touched by any player on that side of the field. If a goalkeeper dribbles the ball outside the penalty area or does not play the ball with the hands, then the kick may cross the midfield.

B. GOAL KICKS

An indirect free kick shall be awarded to the opposing team when a goalkeeper and/or field player, when making a goal kick, kicks the ball across midfield without making contact with his/her side of the field or being touched by any player on that side of the field. In both cases, the indirect free kick will be taken at the point of the midfield line where the ball crossed.

The opposing team must move behind the build out line during a goal kick until the ball is put into play.  The goal kick cannot go directly beyond the midfield line. The penalty for kicking the ball directly beyond the midfield line is an indirect free kick awarded to the opposing team at the point of the midfield line where the ball crossed.

C. HEADING

 All players in U10 age groups shall not engage in heading in either games or practices.   An indirect kick is awarded to the opposing team if a player, in the opinion of the referee, deliberately heads or attempts to head the ball at the point of the infraction. 

If, in the opinion of the referee, a deliberate head ball or attempt to head the ball occurs in the penalty area, the indirect free kick will be taken on the top edge of the penalty area parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the infringement occurs.

If, in the opinion of the referee, a player does not deliberately head or attempt to head the ball, then play should continue.  

D. BUILD OUT LINE

When the goalie has the ball in their hands during play from the opponent, the opposing team must move behind the build out line until the ball is put into play.  Once the opposing team is behind the build out line, the goalie can resume distribution in accordance with these game rules.  Ideally, the goalkeeper will wait until the opposing team has retreated to put the ball into play but has the option to do so sooner.  If the goalie does not wait, they accept the positioning of the opponents and the consequences of how play develops.   After the ball is put into play by the goalkeeper, the opposing team can cross the build out line and play resumes as normal.

The opposing team must also move behind the build out line during a goal kick until the ball is in play.  Limitations on the goal kick as specified in these game rules apply. 

The ball is considered “in play” in accordance with IFAB rules.  There are no modifications because of the build out line.

E. FREE KICKS

Conform to IFAB with the following exception: Opponents must be 8 yards away before kick is allowed.
