IF you coach a coed team U9 through U19, or an all-girls team U7 through U19, you will be playing soccer according to the rules listed on the Rules Table linked below. All other age groups have had their division managers provide in-house rule sheets for your use.
It is always advisable to discuss any rules you have concerns about with the referee before the game starts.
**U9 and U10 Coaches** Some of the fields you will play on will have "build-out lines" which are required under some premier soccer league rules. If you see a dashed line on a 7v7 field you are playing at, between the midfield line and the goal box, make sure that you, the opposing coach, and the referee are all on the same page regarding offside infractions. According to the intercity rules, there is no offside infraction for this age group.
If you have any questions, please contact your division manager.
