Sportsmanship and Running up the Score

Coaches,

A over the past few season we have noticed that there have been a few teams that have been "Running up the Score" with little regard to it's effect on the opposing teams and players. The goal of Recreational Soccer is to provide a positive, fun atmosphere for players to learn and play the game. GLASA believes that "Running Up the Score" in a game with little regard to it's effect on the opposing players is not in the spirit of the game and/or why people play recreational soccer. It can also come off as a lack of respect for the players and coaches on the other teams. We understand that there may be instances where a team is just superior and this will happen on occasion but we want you to understand that you should do everything in your power to try and keep the games fun and competitive.

To this end, the GLASA board has voted to implement the following policy below in which we will review all U9 and above games ending with a score differential greater than 8 to determine if both coaches did everything possible to try to keep the game positive and competitive.

If you have any questions regarding the policy, please direct them to your Age Group Commissioners.
Please download the new policy and review it by CLICKING HERE.

U9 / U10 Build-Out Line Playing Rules

US Soccer has implemented new playing rules at U9 & U10 regarding how the Keeper plays the ball and how the opposing team should respond. If you are a U9 or U10 coach or player please review the rules regarding the "Build-Out" line which will be present on all U9 & U10 fields. On GLASA fields the "Build-Out" line will be a dashed line across the field approximately 3-4 yards beyond the edge of the penalty area.

To review how The Referee's will be calling Keeper play, please review the simplified rules by CLICKING HERE.

Game Reports

For all Game U9 and above a game report from each team should be presented to the Referee prior to the game. The Referee will fill in the score and return the forms to the coaches at the end of the game and the "Home Team" coach should call in the scores. If any cards are issued during the game, the Referee will tear off the lower corner to return to the coach and will retain the remainder of the report as record of the issued card.
