House League Rules (Owen Sound Minor Soccer)

PrintHouse League Rules
Under 5 and Under 6

The way the Under 5 and 6 divisions sessions work is as follows:

For the first 25 minutes we will be practicing as a team playing different games/activities to assist the children with skills development.
We will then have a 5 minute water break.
For the last part of the session, we will then split our team into 2 groups and play a mini game against another team. These 2 mini games will be 4 on 4 and encourage the children to participate and get as many touches on the ball as possible. The coaches are allowed on the field during these games. There will be no referees and usually don't play with goalies.‎ If the ball goes out, just throw it back into play.

We play with mini "pop up" nets...coaches are asked to assist with putting them up for the first games and taking them down after the last games and placing them in the Referee room for storage.

---------------------------------------------------------------

For all divisions from Under 7 to Under 18....‎the team rosters for some divisions are not full, so for some games, if the coaches/convenors decide to play with less than the regular amount of players on the field, that can be decided on a game by game basis. If a team is shorthanded in the middle of the summer, we ask that the opposing team play with the same number of players.

Under 7 and Under 8

They have a 20 minute skills sessions followed by 2- 15 minute halves game. 5 minute half time. There are referees.

5 vs 5, which includes a goalie. Use a Pinnie (every team should have one) for the goalie and rotate players through that position, changing at minimum at halftime. ‎

Kick-ins, not throw-ins.‎ Coaches are allowed on the field.

For U7 and U8....there is a retreat line, which is the white line at centre field.

All opposing players must‎ "retreat" behind this line anytime the goalie makes a save or is taking a goal kick. This allows the goalie to throw or pass the ball successfully to their teammate, and allows that player to make a pass or dribble the ball, while not under pressure. Once the teammate recieves the ball from the goalie, opposition players can move forward past the centre line and apply pressure.


Under 10

The first 4 weeks there is a 20 minute skills session followed by 2- 15 minute halves plus 5 minute half time. There are referees.
‎After 4 weeks, 2-25 minute halves plus 5 minute half time.

For U10...there is a retreat line, which is centre field white line.
