Oly-Pen Sports uses the Official Rules of Indoor Soccer as published by the US Indoor Soccer Association as a base for our rules of play with the exception of our "Facility" Rules which are listed below.

Oly-Pen Sports Youth League Rules

The Ball

     U8 and below will use a size 3  |   U9 through U12 will use a size 4  |  U13 and above will use a size 5 ball

The Players

     Ages U8 and below will play on the small field, without goal keepers, 4 vs 4 on the field

     Ages U13 and above will play on the big field with goal keepers and 5 vs 5 on the field (6 total)

     U9-U17 are specifically Boys and Girls teams, NOT coed.  Girls may play on boys teams but the rules do not change.

The Coaches

     Only ONE coach per team will be allowed in the bench area.  In the event of a coach getting ejected, he can be replaced by another         coach or parent so that the game may resume.

Equipment

     Shinguards are required for all play

     No dangerous objects (hard casts without padding, jewelry, watches or other objects that could injure)  This includes fitbits and fitness       watches. (These may be worn under a wrist band) ***This rule will be enforced heavily starting November 16th, If you don't have a               wrist band and want to wear your watch/fitness tracker, you will be able to purchase a wrist band at Guest Services***

     Cleats are not allowed on our indoor playing surfaces.  Turf shoes, Tennis shoes and indoor shoes only.

Duration of the Game

     Games on the small field will consist of four, 10 minute quarters and will kick off on the half hour of every hour

     Games on the large fields will consist of two, 22.5 minute halves.  Field 1 will kick off on the hour, Field 2 on the 1/4 hour.

Free Kicks

     All free kicks on the small field will be indirect

     Penalty Kicks will be taken at the top of the arch with all other players behind the attacking line.  Penalty kicks will be given if:

          A. A foul in the box is committed by the last defender. 

          B. A foul in the box is committed that warrants a time penalty

     All other fouls in the box will be a free kick at the top of the arch with a wall allowed

     All opponents must be 15 feet from the ball on all restarts

     On keeper restarts or free kicks in the defensive arch, the opposing team must be 15' away from the arch until the ball is in play

     In youth leagues U12 and below, the opposing players must retreat to the attacking line for keeper restarts

Fouls

     You may not go to the ground with any part of the body in order to play the ball. No sliding, no sliding kicks, no sliding blocks.  If in

     the opinion of the referee, you could not play the ball without going to ground, a foul will be called

     AN INTENTIONAL SLIDE TACKLE WILL RESULT IN AN AUTOMATIC 2 MINUTE PENALTY.

Safety

     Headers are not permitted for ages U5-U11.  A free kick will be called.  Due to this, goal keepers from U9-U11 will not be allowed

     to drop kick the ball.

INTIMIDATION RULE

     Any player taking a forceful shot above the waist of any other player and striking or intimidating that player will have a foul called.

     Continued use of extreme and uncontrolled force will result in time penalties to the discretion of the official.

     THIS RULE APPLIES TO YOUTH U12 AND BELOW

Mercy Rule

     When a team gains a goal differential of +3 goals, they will be forced to remove one field player until the goal differential is +2 goals

     or less.  If a time penalty is given to a team playing short handed, they will take an additional field player off.  If the goal differential

     drops below 3, the time penalty must still be served in full unless another goal is scored by the opponent.

     For ages U13+ the goal differential is +5.

Cards

     Blue Cards are for serious violations of the rules

     Yellow Cards are a warning that the next card displayed will be red

     Red Cards are disqualification from the game

Time Penalties

     A 2 minute time penalty will be given for Blue Card offenses

     Goal keepers must serve their own time penalties

     A player receiving 2 blue cards will be shown a yellow card, notifying them that their next card will be red

     If a player receives an accumulation red card (three blue cards in one game) the player is ejected and the team will have a 2 minute 

     time penalty

     Any player that receives a straight red card will be ejected from the game and the team will serve a 5 minute time penalty in full

     regardless of whether or not the other team scores.

     There will be no delayed penalties.  If a situation warrants a time penalty, the referee will give it at that moment regardless of an

     advantage situation.

Goal Keepers

     Goal keepers must release a Keeper Restart outside of the arch for play to begin

     Keepers will have 5 seconds to put the ball in play outside of the arch on any stoppages

     Keepers will have a 5 second limit on ANY possession inside the arch whether with the foot or hand.  Failure to get the ball out of the

     box in 5 seconds will result in a free kick for the opponents at the top of the arch.

Suspensions and Ejections

     Any player receiving a Red Card is required to leave the facility immediately.

     Red cards will be assessed a MANDATORY 1 week suspension from all play at the facility

     All red cards will be reviewed by management and additional fines and/or suspension time will be added within 5 days of the incident

     Fighting and trying to instigate a fight will not be tolerated and will carry heavy suspensions and fines
