U08 & U09 Interclub
Rules of Competition
As of 2016, key modifications to the rules include:
U09 age group will continue to play 5v5 format (WYS rules have not been adopted).
A “Build out line” is used for goal kicks and when the goalkeeper handles the ball.
Goalkeeper cannot “punt” the ball (must roll, throw or play the ball off the ground).
Deliberately heading the ball is not allowed (results in an indirect free kick).
Ball can travel any direction when play is started/restarted from the center
