» If you are the home team be sure and provide a proper-sized (U5 through U8 - Size 3; U9 through U12 - Size 4; U13 & up - Size 5) regulation soccer ball* to the referee.
» If both teams have similar uniforms, the home team must wear pinnies or training bibs of a different color over their uniforms. These vests are available at the Concessions Stand.
» For U5-U6, Home team should occupy the bleachers on the north or east sidelines, visitors the south or west sides. For U7 and older, both home and visitors will occupy the same sideline, divided up by the mid-line and staying within the striped coaches box.
» If either team does not have enough to play by 10 minutes after kick off then the game is considered a forfeit. If the teams decide to stay and scrimmage, then that is their decision. Referees are not required to stay since a scrimmage is not a sanctioned game. Minimum number of players needed to start a game is as follows:
U5/U6 - 3 per team
U7/U8 - 3 per team
U9/U10 - 5 per team
U11-U13 - 6 per team
U13-U19- 7 per team
