5-A-Side Games - 10U, 12U, & 15U

Saturday May 18th 2019

Game
Schedule

A fun series of games for players to explore many positions, in an often high scoring game. The morning is filled with many opportunities to network, as you move from one 15min game to another.

  • This is no cost.
  • Each team plays 4 games, over about 3 hours.
  • Every player gets a medal.

  • Volunteers:
    • Team/Squad Coach: Any current referee, team manager, or coach can fill this role. You are tasked with checking in, organizing players for each game, assigning playing positions, and running substitutions.

    • Center Referee: Any current referee can fill this role. You can signup in Horizon Web Ref in hour blocks. You can swap on game day. Scheduled subs/alternates will be prioritized to players looking to referee.
  • Teams:
    • Your regular Core team splits into two small squads (players should be on and stay on a single team. Only exceptions are allowed for squads that are short players, balancing changes, or substituting for a sick player.).
    • 5U, 6U, 8U, & 19U will have normally scheduled games, and will not be part of 5-A-Side.
    • 10U is 4-6 players on a squad, games are 4 vs 4 on fields 101E, 101W, 102N, 102S, 103N, & 103S. (~6x8' goals)
    • 12U is 5-7 players on a squad, games are 5 vs 5 on fields 121E, 121W, 122N, 122S, 123E, & 123W. (6x18' & 7x21' goals used)
    • 15U is 5-7 players on a squad, games are 5 vs 5 on fields 141N, 141S, 142E, & 142W. (8x24' goals)
  • Notable Rule Modifications:
    • Games are 15 min w/ 5 min between games, games start by horn or whistle.
    • Any time, on the fly substitutions like hockey / indoor soccer.
    • All restarts are direct (including kick-off) except drop balls & throw-ins.
    • 12U+ keeper punts/throws cannot cross half in the air, restart is at half.
    • 10U no keepers (no goal hanging allowed).
    • 7min halves, 5min between games (all fields signaled by horn).
    • No offside.
    • No deliberate heading (except 15U) restart is a direct kick.
    • No buildout line, no penalty box, and no penalty kick.

Frequently Asked Questions

Simple Game Schedule?
You can see the games online (here), but that webpage does not include the Squad A or Squad B part. In most cases (15U & 10UB should double check), the first game is squad A second game is squad B, third game is squad A…

Not Enough Players for Two Squads?
You can operate with just one squad playing both A & B games (! balance !), it would be close to 2 hours of soccer. 15U & 10UB will need to check if they play two games at the same time. You can also use players that are not playing from another team, but ideally you get everyone playing that would normally be in that game.

Outside Players?

If they played AYSO in fall 2018 or winter 2018-19, they can play on Saturday 5/18. Please be sure you balance the squads. Do not bump a spring player, only look to replace absent/needed players.

Balancing, How?
5-A-Side favors big kickers and a lot of energy, look to balance those players first. Only distributions from the hands of the goalkeeper are restricted by how far they can go in the air, you can score a goal from a goal kick (All free kicks are direct, drop ball and throw-in cannot score a goal directly).

4-A-Side for 10U?
In 10U, they will not have a goalkeeper, so it is actually 4-A-Side. The goals are 6ft tall by 8ft long. The field will be setup going in one half of a field with a goal on each touch (throw-in) line.

Food?
Yes, you can bring food, but you cannot use a flame and cook the food at an AYSO event.

Free Substitution?
There is free, any time, substitution. The substituted player must leave the field before the replacing player comes on. Again, this can be done at any time without needing to check with the referee. If too many players area actively playing on the field would result in a restart for the other team at half, if a goal was scored and too many were playing on the field, the goal would be reversed.

Offside?
None.

Goalkeeper throw or punt (12U & 15U)?
Cannot cross the half in the air. If it travels over half without touching anything else, the opposing team restarts from half about where it crossed.

Central Horn Timer?
Once that horn goes to start a half, you can start, even if the other team is not on the field.

Kick-off?
Home team starts the first kick-off, away team kicks off after the half, see the game schedule. If the kicking off team isn’t ready, the other team may kick off if the referee allows. Teams can score directly from a kick-off.

Penalty Kick?
No penalty area will be marked, just a goal box (12U+), so no penalty kick.

Scoring?
You can score from anywhere on the field and from any direct kick restart (not directly from a throw-in or drop ball). Keep in mind that keepers (12U+) cannot punt or throw over half, but if it touches the ground on their half and goes in the other teams goal, that is a score.

Game Cards?
No game cards are required, no tracking of scores will be done.

4-A-Side Players Near Goal?
10U Players should be discouraged from goal hanging. Keeping at least a few feet away from the goal line. Since the goals are 6ft tall & 8ft long, and no players can use hands, it is not recommended to have players stick in the goal, it will not stop an attacker from scoring by shooting high.

Restart Distance?

10U it is 6 yards or the goal line. 12U it is 8 yards or the goal line. 15U it is 10 yards or the goal line. No restarts should take place in the marked goal area except a goal kick. Since 10U has no goal area, move the ball 4 yards away from the goal (parallel to the infraction). 10U players are allowed to be on the goal line for a kick that is within 6 yards of the goal (In general players should be a few feet off the goal line as much as possible, see FAQ “4-A-Side Players Near Goal?” as to why sticking on the goal line will not help).
