National Section Area Region S S S A A A A R R R R R Region 1447 is in Area C, Area C is in Section 12

8 The AYSO Philosophies Everyone Plays Balanced Teams Open Registration
Positive Coaching Good Sportsmanship

9 AYSO Philosophies (cont’d)
Everyone Plays - Our program’s goal is for kids to play soccer — so we mandate that every player on every team play at least half of every game. In Region 1447, no player plays 4 quarters until everyone else plays 3 quarters. Balanced Teams - Each year we form new teams as evenly balanced as possible — because it is fair and more fun when teams of equal ability play. Open Registration - Our program is open to all children between 4 and 19 years of age who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing.

10 AYSO Philosophies (cont’d)
Positive Coaching - Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment by the players and ultimately leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players. Good Sportsmanship - We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO.

11 The AYSO Team For any team to function well it has to have rules.
The AYSO Team has four basic rules: Work together Help each other Protect each other Do your best

12 AYSO Coaching Philosophy
What is Positive Coaching? Positive Instructive Encouraging P I E 6/13/06: Improved how this slide presents itself

13 Reasons for the “Laws of the Game”
Promotes “Gentlemanly” play Provides a standard reference for players and referees All Laws are based on safety and fairness

14 Spirit of the Game Soccer as a World Sport Simple Game
Widely Considered the Most Popular Game in the World Played in Nearly Every Nation Simple Game Bare Requirements: Ball Open Area Game should be Fun, Fair and Safe

15 The Referee’s Job Keep the game safe and in control
Keep the game flowing Soccer is a continuous action sport Don’t stop play unless needed Don’t be afraid to stop play when needed Provide positive instruction You are a teacher of the game and the laws Enjoying your time on the field

16 Modules 3 & 8 Pre-game Preparation & Post Game Duties

18 Field Check The referee must ensure the field is safe for play.
During field inspection look for… Foreign objects on or near field. Broken glass, debris etc...  Sprinklers or holes in the field. These can be marked with cones obtained from coaches.  If cones are unavailable, consider using a jacket or sweater. Inspect goal flags/popup goals Flags should be upright Popup goals should be secured to prevent tipping

19 Field Check (cont’d) If you find something unsafe, either…
1) Find a way to make it safe (preferred), or 2) Cancel the match & take the field off-line. Have the home team take the equipment Call the Division Commissioner (DC) and Safety Director. These people need to know that the field is safe before the game can take place or continue. 10/16/06: Changed reference from “Chief Referee” to “Safety Director”

At start of game, Start of 2nd half, and After each goal scored

37 Kick-Off Procedure All players must be in their own half
Players from both teams may stand on halfway line Opponents 6 yards away from ball (on or behind the center circle line) Standing on center circle line is OK Ball stationary Referee whistles In play when kicked and moves forward If beginning of 1st or 2nd half, clock starts when ball is put into play

38 Improper Kick-Offs Retake If Not Done Correctly:
Ball kicked backwards Player encroaches prior to kick Examples: a player from either team crosses halfway line, or a player from non-kicking team enters center circle prior to kick-off Play stopped at referee’s discretion Free kick to opposing team if played twice by same player This is the “Double Touch” rule which applies to all restarts except the dropped ball

39 Time Keeping Referee is sole timekeeper Halves are timed
20-minute halves for U-7 and U-8 games Substitution break called midway through the half: at approximately the 10-minute mark. The clock runs through the substitution break – limited field space/tight schedule Half-time periods are between 5 and 10 minutes Half ends when time runs out Whistle at that time Play stops at that point 10/12/06: Revisited this slide.

If a player gets injured… The referee may stop play immediately If bleeding or serious injury: Referee should beckon the coach on to the field to attend to injured player The player must leave the field The team may either substitute or play short (provided at or above minimum # of players)

43 AYSO Substitutions There are 4 regular substitution opportunities in AYSO games Midway through the first half (after first quarter) Midway through the second half (after third quarter) At half time For injury Look for ball-out-of-play opportunities for sub break Throw-ins, goal kicks, and prior to kick-offs are ideal Late arriving players If they arrive in 1st Quarter, they must play a minimum of 2 quarters If they arrive in 2nd or 3rd Quarter, they must play a minimum of 1 quarter

44 Ball In and Out of Play The ball is out of play when:
All of the ball is completely outside the outer edge of the touch line or goal line, or The game is stopped by the referee (i.e. the whistle blows). OUT The ball is still in play even when: It rebounds off the goal flag or corner flag/cone back onto the field It touches the referee Provided the ball has not left the field of play

45 Ball In and Out of Play (cont’d)
The ball’s position determines whether it is in or out of play, not the player’s position. Whistle Not normally needed when ball goes out of play Whistle only needed to start play, stop play or to get attention

46 Method of Scoring A goal is scored when the ball entirely crosses over the goal line, and between the goal flags and below the top of the flags GOAL!!! Goal Line Between Flags Referee signals by pointing toward the center circle (the restart is a kick-off) Own-goals count No Goal No Goal No Goal No Goal

47 When to Use the Whistle To start or restart play … To stop play …
At kick-offs After a substitution break to signal restart of game To stop play … For a foul or infraction Due to an interruption from an outside event or injury For a substitution break To end the half or the game To get player’s attention

48 Instances When the Whistle Isn’t Needed
Whistle not needed for normal ball-out-of-play situations (ball over touch line or goal line) Not needed to indicate restart may be taken Exception is restart after sub-break Not needed after a goal is scored

49 Stopping & Restarting Play – Part 1: Throw-ins and Goal Kicks

50 Restarts Six restarts in U7/U8 soccer Kick-Off Throw-In Goal Kick
Corner Kick Dropped Ball Free Kick

51 Throw-Ins A throw-in is taken to restart the game after the ball goes out of play over the touch line. Awarded to the opponents of the team who last touched the ball. Referee signals by pointing in the direction of attack for the team getting the throw-in Reinforce with verbal cues: “It’s a throw-in for the Red Dragons”

52 Proper Throw-In Requirements
For a legal throw-in the thrower must… Face the field of play Have part of each foot touching the ground, either on or behind the touch line Use both hands to deliver the ball from behind and over the head.

53 Throw-In Specifics Taken from the approximate point where the ball crossed the touch line No more than 1 yard either way along touch line If the throw-in is improper, ball given to the opposing team for a throw-in from the same place. It is OK to allow a second attempt Ball is in play as soon as it is released and any portion of it is on or over the outside edge of the line. If the ball fails to enter the field of play, the throw-in is retaken. A goal may not be scored directly from a throw-in.

54 Goal Kicks When the ball leaves the field over the goal line, last touched by an attacker, and does not score a goal, the restart is a goal kick Referee signals by pointing toward the goal area. Reinforce with verbal cues “It’s a goal kick for the Bumblebees” 9/4/06: Expanded this slide into two (see next slide).

55 Goal Kick Ball Placement
The kicking team may place the ball anywhere in the goal area, including on the boundary lines

56 Goal Kick Specifics Opponents of the kicker must remain at least 6 yards from the ball until it is kicked. Important that the referee enforces this rule The players won’t know and will tend to be too close Ball must be stationary when kicked The ball is in play when it is kicked and leaves the goal area

57 Goal Kick Specifics (con’t)
The kicker may not touch the ball a second time until it has touched another player. If so, free kick for the opponents at the spot of the 2nd touch. A goal may be scored directly from a goal kick, but only against the opponents, i.e. no “own goals” on goal kicks

58 Stopping & Restarting Play –
Modules 6 & 9 Stopping & Restarting Play – Part 2: Corner Kicks & The Dropped Ball Law 17 – The Corner Kick Law 8 – Start and Restart of Play (Dropped Ball)

59 Corner Kicks When the ball leaves the field over the goal line without scoring a goal and was last touched by a defender, the restart is a corner kick Referee signals by pointing toward the corner where the kick is to be taken Corner nearest to the point where the ball went out.

60 Corner Kick Ball Placement
Ball can be placed anywhere in the corner arc including on the boundary lines

61 Corner Kicks Specifics
Opponents of the kicker must remain 6 yards or more away from the ball until it is kicked into play The ball is in play when it is kicked and moves. The kicker may not touch the ball a second time until it has touched another player. A goal may be scored directly from a corner kick, but only against the opponents.

62 Dropped Ball When play is stopped by the referee for an unusual but neutral reason, play is restarted by the referee dropping the ball. Reasons for doing a dropped ball include An injury A dog on the field A stray ball from a nearby game A mistaken whistle Any other occasion when play is stopped for any reason other than the ball leaving the field of play or an infraction of the laws

63 Dropped Ball Procedure
The referee drops the ball where it was when play was stopped Exception: If in the goal area, the referee drops the ball at the nearest point on the goal area line that is parallel to the goal line. The ball is dropped from the height of a player’s waist and is in play when it hits the ground. If a player kicks the ball before it hits the ground, it is dropped again because play has not been restarted properly.

64 Stopping & Restarting Play: Cause and Effect Summary
If Cause of Stoppage: Restart with: Injury or Outside Interference Dropped Ball Ball leaves the field of play over touch line Throw-in Ball leaves the field of play over goal line Goal Kick, Corner Kick or Kick Off Fouls or Double Touch Free Kick (next section) Substitution Normal restart based on how play stopped for substitution 8/26/06: Changed to “Dropped Ball” 5/24/07: Revised slide to be a chart instead of bullets. Spelled out DFK and IFK.

65 Using Linesmen in U-7 & U-8 Games
Benefits Helps you with calls in your game Gives you practice refereeing as part of a team Gives individuals experience in the job of lining games Brings in new volunteers in the organization Potentially new referees for the future

66 Linesmen Recruiting and Pre-game Instructions
Recruit two linesmen before the game Ask coach(es) for someone who can help Explain about ball in and out of play Explain throw-ins, goal kicks & corner kicks Show examples of arm signals AR Flags not needed for U-7/U-8 sized fields Ask them not to coach players

71 Stopping & Restarting Play,
Modules 6 & 9 Stopping & Restarting Play, Part 3 - Fouls & Free Kicks Law 8 – Start and Restart of Play Law 13 – Free Kicks

72 Fouls What is a foul? An unfair or unsafe action committed by a player against an opponent or the opposing team while the ball is in play A Free Kick results from fouls or other infractions Examples of fouls: Tripping, Holding, Pushing, Handling the Ball Deliberately, etc. Example of other infractions: Double touch on any restart kick or throw-in For these ages the primary consideration for stopping play is whether the foul causes danger to, or lessens the enjoyment of, any of the participants.

73 Common Fouls Most common fouls at the younger ages:
Pushing an Opponent Tripping an Opponent Holding an Opponent Handling the Ball Deliberately Charging an Opponent Playing in a Dangerous Manner

74 Common Fouls (cont’d) Pushing an opponent
Young players commonly push opponents to get to the ball or gain an advantage. Pushing includes use something beside their hands. Tripping or attempting to trip an opponent Should be considered a foul even if the player did not intend to trip. Referees should be sure that players did not trip over the ball, or their own feet.

75 Common Fouls (cont’d) Holding an opponent
Holding any part of an opponent may give a player an unfair advantage. It is illegal to hold with the hands or any parts of the body.

76 Common Fouls (cont’d) Handling the ball deliberately
If a player deliberately strikes, deflects, or holds the ball with the hands or arms (up to the shoulder) it’s a foul. Attempting to handle the ball is not a foul. Not a foul if the ball strikes the player’s hands or arms -- Player has not handled the ball. Referees can promote a better understanding of this foul by consistently using the correct term “handles the ball deliberately”, not “handball”

77 Common Fouls (cont’d) Charging an opponent
Fair charges are allowed and are defined as a brief, staccato, shoulder-to-shoulder bumps. Reckless or hard charges are illegal. Playing in a Dangerous Manner High kicks near an opponent A player lying on the ground that is continuously trying to kick the ball away from an opponent For U-5 through U-8 in Region 104, slide tackles and headers are considered dangerous play

78 Other Fouls Other offenses that are considered fouls:
Kicks or attempts to kick an opponent Jumps at an opponent Strikes or attempts to strike an opponent Tackles an opponent to gain possession of the ball making contact with the opponent before touching the ball Spits at an opponent

79 Free Kicks For U5 though U-8 all free kicks are direct
“Direct” means that a goal may be scored if the ball is kicked directly into an opponents goal Referee signals by blowing the whistle to stop play and pointing in the direction of attack for the kicking team Briefly explain what the foul was and which team gets to take the kick 9/4/06: Emphasized “direct” in first bull and reworded sub-bullet to me more clear In general, the kick is taken from the place where foul or double touch occurred Special circumstances to be covered later

80 Free Kicks Specifics All opponents must remain 6 yards or more away from the ball until it is in play Use radius of center circle as a guide The ball must be stationary when the kick is taken Kick can go in any direction, including backwards The ball is in play when it is kicked and moves

81 Free Kick Specifics (cont’d)
The kicker may not play the ball again a 2nd time until it has touched another player If so, the opposing team gets a kick from the spot of the double touch. If the kick goes directly into the opponents’ goal, a goal is awarded If the kick goes directly into the team’s own goal, corner kick is awarded to the opposing team No “own goals” on free kicks

82 Position of Free Kicks Special Circumstances
Free kicks resulting from a foul inside the goal area taken from a spot 6 yards away from goal line Ball moved to “6-yard Line”, at the point nearest to where the infringement occurred Applies to free kicks for either the attacking or defending team If free kick to the attacking team, all opponents are 6 yards away from the ball, or on their own goal line between goal flags

83 Misconduct Misconduct examples: violent conduct (hitting an opponent or teammate), serious foul play (a really hard foul), spitting at another player or teammate Divided into two types: Actions which are cautioned (yellow card shown at older ages) Behaviors for which the player must be sent off (red card shown) In U-5 through U-8, a player should not be cautioned or sent off except under extreme conditions. Red and yellow cards are not provided to referees at these ages, and these cards are not shown to players By anticipating problems and working with coaches, referees can prevent players from getting into most situations that will cause them to be sanctioned.

84 AYSO Philosophies & Positive Coaching (one more time)
Everyone Plays Balanced Teams Open Registration Positive Coaching Good Sportsmanship Positive Coaching Positive Instructive Encouraging

85 Location of Coaches & Spectators
Coaches’ Area (Technical Area) Touch Line Halfway Line Coaches’ Area 12 Yards wide (width should be diameter of center circle) 1 yard back from the touch line Coaches should remain in their respective area during match Exceptions: Pre-game, Half time, Post-game or when requested by the referee to enter the field of play Spectators should be along their side lines and not allowed to stand behind the goal lines near the field of play 8/28/06: Changed the 2nd sub bullet under “Coaches Area” to say “1 yard back” as opposed to 1 to 3 yards.

We made sure that every kid that showed up played. We made sure that the teams were fair by creating teams that were balanced. Any kid in the neighborhood could play and sporting behavior made it fun to play. As parents or neighbors taught us the game they taught in a supportive way. Additional option: On video ask different people on tape what the above means to them. Additional option: Through an interview with some kids, parents, etc. ask how the mission statement correlates to the way adults when they were kids used to form up teams for games on the nearest playground-balanced the teams so everyone had fun, followed rules because everyone wanted it to be fair, etc. Additional option: Pause video and ask the above questions of those watching the video.
