Area Guidelines

  • Any time you play in AREA, you must have coaches & players cards, even if you are playing at your own region's field.
  • If you do not have your players cards, including coaches cards, you may not be able to play.
  • Have them in numerical order like your line up card, and make referee check-ins quicker.

Area 11 K Rules and Regulations 

Goal Differential Rule

  • Teams that win a game by a final goal differential of six (6) or more goals will receive a one (1) point deduction in the standings for every goal scored above five (5) goals
  • Coaches of teams in games that result in a goal differential of six (6) or more goals wil be required to complete one or more good sportsmanship mentoring sessions
  • Repeat offenders will be suspended

Remember - It is your job to make it a great experience for BOTH teams! 

How to not get yourself in that situation:
  • Pay attention to the flow of the game
  • Make adjustments early
  • Give your team a challenge (score only off a cross, use their weak foot only for passing/shooting, complete 10 passes before a shot, only someone who hasn’t scored in the last year can score)
Things to not do:
  • Call out how many passes
  • Pull players from the field
  • Make loud comments about the weakness of the other team
