SOCCER RULES AND GUIDELINES

 

The primary goal of the Rehoboth Youth Soccer Club is to provide a fun and positive atmosphere for the children.  Teaching good sportsmanship is vital!  Poor behavior by parents, players, or spectators will not be tolerated.  Any spectator who diminishes the positive atmosphere the RYSC strives to promote may be asked to leave the complex. 

 

PRE-K/ KINDERGARTEN DIVISION :  (Size 3 Ball)

The first 20 minutes will be instructional with the coach teaching the fundamentals of dribbling, passing, and the basic rules of the game.  Because two teams are assigned to that field for the game the two teams will split the field for the instructional period.  After the 20 minute period the two teams assigned to that field will play a game of 4 vs 4 players.  There will be (4) quarters each lasting eight minutes with a running clock.  There is no goalie in these games and no throw ins when the ball goes out of bounds.  Coaches will have a player kick the ball in from the spot the ball went out of bounds.  Because the children are very young coaches should do their best in having the kids spread out and stopping the game to give short instructional comments and coaching tips. 

 

GRADE 1&2 Division:  (Size 4 Ball)

Games will be one-hour long with (4) twelve minute quarters (RUNNING CLOCK).  Games will be a 8 vs 8 format with a goalie.  Coaches may use a 9v9 format if the games are played on the larger 9v9 field.  Throw ins and corner kicks will be performed.  If the goalie makes a save or is performing a goal kick the opposing team must retreat back to a line approximately 1/3 the distance from the goal.  This line is called the playout line and prevents the opposing team from crowding the goal box area during a goal kick or save by the goalie.  There is NO heading in recreational soccer. 

 

GRADE 3 & 4 Division:  ( Size 4 Ball)

Games will be one-hour long with (4) twelve minute quarters (RUNNING CLOCK).  Games will be a 8 vs 8 format with a goalie.  Coaches may use a 9v9 format if the games are played on the larger 9v9 field.  Throw ins and corner kicks will be performed.  If the goalie makes a save or is performing a goal kick the opposing team must retreat back to a line approximately 1/3 the distance from the goal.  This line is called the playout line and prevents the opposing team from crowding the goal box area during a goal kick or save by the goalie.  There is NO heading in recreational soccer. 

 

GRADE 5/6/7 Division:   (Size 5 Ball)

Games will be one-hour long with (4) twelve minute quarters (RUNNING CLOCK).  Games will be played on Field 1 and Field 2 which are the larger 11v11 fields.  Prior to the game volunteers will move one goal inward approximately 25 yards and cone off the end line/corners.  Games will be a 9v9 format.  There is NO heading.  If the goalie makes a save or is performing a goal kick the opposing team must retreat back to a line approximately 1/3 the distance from the goal.  This line is called the playout line and prevents the opposing team from crowding the goal box area during a goal kick or save by the goalie.

Welcome to the Rehoboth Youth Soccer Club.  We are a recreational soccer club  based in Rehoboth, MA and play our games and practices at Bliss Field located at 311 Tremont St.  Rehoboth, MA.  We pride ourselves on providing a fun and positive atmosphere for the children in the community while learning the game of soccer.  

We are 100% volunteer based and rely on parents/guardians to help coach and organize the club every year.   If you are interested in coaching or board positions please contact your current league president.  We are now operating our registrations and news postings on the Dighton Rehoboth Soccer Club's website, www.drstrikers.org,  who is our sister travel club team comprised of local children.   Because we are on the same website please be sure to click on recreational soccer links or RYSC when looking for information in regards to us.  We operate recreational soccer activities from September to November and typically open registration in the early summer.  

I would like to thank you for supporting the club and ensuring the children of this community have a fun experience with their friends and classmates.  These are the memories you and your children will always remember.  Volunteering will help the club thrive and continue!  We hope to see you in the fall.
