    Fall 2016 Season Notes

    New Small Sided Playing Rules:
    US Soccer has implemented new guidelines for youth soccer including field and roster sizes. It is expected that all soccer playing organizations do their best to adhere to these new rules but some variances will be allowed due to the understanding that full compliance could involve large capital investments and many associations do not control the fields used for play.

    GLASA has outlined the new rules into the following spreadsheet. The spreadsheet shows the configurations that we will be using for the fall along with the US Soccer guidelines.

    GLASA Small Sided Rules Summary [PDF]

    Game Reports

    For all Game U9 and above a game report from each team should be presented to the Referee prior to the game. The Referee will fill in the score and return the forms to the coaches at the end of the game and the "Home Team" coach should call in the scores. If any cards are issued during the game, the Referee will tear off the lower corner to return to the coach and will retain the remainder of the report as record of the issued card.
