soccer basic rules






Basic soccer rules and field size for beginners in U7, U8, U9, U10, U11, and U12 groups of youth soccer.

Field size and rules for soccer can be changed for the age of the group playing the game. The amount of

players on the field and the dimensions can be made much smaller to fit the size of the players.

Many AYSO programs and other youth programs make their own goal size and whether goalies

will play or just field players to give each child the chance to kick the ball as much as possible during

a game. Many web sites talk about regulation size soccer fields, but any organization can reduce the

field size and goal size as they wish. The ball size is also important per ability / age of the player, size 3

and size 4 are popular for U11 and younger. Size 5 soccer balls are encouraged around U10 to U12

age groups. Rules of the game can vary from each age group, the offsides rule can be one altered for

not slowing down the action, most u9 groups and below don’t use it. Throw in rule can also be changed

to a kick in rule for side line / touch line to make it easier for U8 and younger player to put the ball back

into play. As the player get U13 and older the rules get more into Jr. High / High School rule level

and most groups abide by them. All and all, soccer rules are pretty simple, to this day offsides seems

to be in discussion on how ref’s call it. Here are some good video’s on basic soccer rules and field size

for beginners in U7, U8, U9, U10, U11, and U12 groups of youth soccer. Here is a neat link for soccer rules for dummies.
