10U Division Highlights

10U introduces players to the most of the IFAB Laws of the Game (LotG) and the more competitive aspects of soccer. Score is kept in 10U, but the fun and joy of the players should be the most important aspect of the game. Wins and Losses are NOT tracked during the core season; they are only important in the Tournament.

  • 10U practices twice per week, for 1.5 hours per session
  • Games played at most 2 days per week and may be played in neighboring regions (Tri-Comm or Victorville).
  • Plays 7v7 with a goalkeepers (first time goalkeeping is taught).
    • 10U goalkeepers may NOT punt or drop kick the ball.
  • Games are two 25-minute halves with at most 5-minute half-time and water/substitution breaks approximately half-way though each half (“quarters”)
    • The clock does NOT stop during “quarter” water/substitution breaks, so they must be as short as possible
  • Certified referees MUST be available to officiate or the game will be rescheduled
    • If enough referees are available, they will also serve as Assistant Referees.
    • If there are not enough trained referees available for the Assistant Referee positions, a volunteer from each sideline will be asked to serve as a "club linesman."
  • Penalty kicks and offside are introduced.
  • 10U players may NOT head the ball.
  •  In 10U, there is now a Build Out Line which promotes playing the ball “out of the back,” in a less pressured setting.
    • The Build-Out Line only restricts the position of the opposing (offensive) team. The opposing team must move behind the build-out line, away from the goal, for any goal kick or goalkeeper possession.
    • After the ball is put into play, the opposing team may cross the build-out line and play may resume as normal.
    • The build-out line shall be used as the line to determine offside
