U8 - U12 Soccer Rules


U8 and up will be following the rules set forth by the Northern Kentucky Soccer League (NKSL).

NKSL Rules - Click here

Special Rules:

U8 and U10 rules will be modified for goal kicks. Defensive team (team not taking the goal kick) will be required to move back to mid field, to allow the offensive team (team taking the goal kick) to inbound the ball. Once the ball is touched by a player (not taking the goal kick) it is a live ball and the defensive team can then move back across midfield.

No headers in u8 and u10.

Rule updates for 2020:
  • Goal kick no longer has to leave the penalty area before kicking team may touch the ball
  • Coin toss - winner chooses ball or side
  • Dropped ball: drop to 1 player for the team disadvantaged
  • Free kicks with a wall of 3 or more defenders, attackers must be 1 yard away from the wall
