Rules: For Max McCook & Romeoville
Outdoor USSF rules apply except for the following modifications:
Concussion - if the referee see any signs of concussion then the ref will stop the game immediately. The player has to leave the field and to be checked by the coach/trainer. If a coach decides to sub him/her in later in match, it then becomes the coaches and club's responsibility to ensure the safety of the player.
Build Out Enforced for U8-U10 boys and girls.
7v7 Build Out Line. The build out line promotes playing the ball out of the back in a less pressured setting. When the goalkeeper has the ball during play (from the opponent) the opposing team must move behind the build out line until the ball is put into play. Once the opposing team is behind the build out line, the goalkeeper can pass, throw or roll the ball into play (punting is not allowed). After the ball is put into play by the goalkeeper, the opposing team can cross the build out line and play resumes as normal.
Are the build out lines mandatory for 7v7 play? Yes. The build out lines are required for 7v7 play at the U9 and U10 age groups. The build out line is used to promote playing the ball out of the back in an unpressured setting.
Players and number of players.
The maximum number of players on the field: ONE of the above must be a goalkeeper.
