Rules

This is a developmental league, and there will be no standings or official record of scores. There are no standings in the Sporting LS Winter Indoor Soccer Program and there is no championship game or tournament.  Referees will be assigned for all U7 (1st Grade) and above games. U6 (Kindergarten) will require coaches to police their own players, and maintain the integrity of the sport.

  •  3v3 and 4v4 – Games will be played on the small fields and consist of two 15 minute halves with a 5 minute half time. 
    • U5/U6 (PreK/Kdg) teams will play 3v3, refs will not be provided. Coaches are responsible for managing play.
    • U7/U8 (1st/2nd Grade) teams will play 4v4 (3 on the field, one goalie) and refs will be provided
  •      7v7 – Games will be played on the large field and consist of two 20 minute halves with a 5 minute half time. Refs will be provided
    • U9 and up (3rd grade and older) teams will play 7v7 (6 on the field, one goalie) and refs will be provided
  •      Sporting LS reserves the right to reduce each half by a couple minutes, and this decision will be published prior to the beginning of the season.
  •      Red cards and yellow cards will be administered the same as our outdoor season.
  •  Roster changes can be made during the season with the consent of the league.
  •  All fouls are indirect; the team committing the foul must be three yards from the restart.
  •  Each 3v3 field has a “no touch” box around the goal; if an offensive player touches the ball in the no touch box the goal will not count.  Likewise, if the defender touches the ball in the no touch box a goal will be awarded to the offensive team, regardless if the play results in the ball going into the goal or not.
  •  All out of bounds balls will be restated with a “kick in” not a throw in.
  •  All goal kicks must be taken from the end-line.
  •  All goals must be scored from the offensive side of the midfield (no long kicks into the goals).
  •  If a referee determines a player is deliberating delaying or causing the delay of the game by launching the soccer ball off the field in a manner harmful to others or the game, the official may issue a red card and send that player off the field resulting in that player missing the next game.

If unforeseen circumstances occur, like power outages or inclement weather, Sporting Lee’s Summit reserves the right to cancel games which may not be rescheduled.
