Laws of the Game

  1. Never, ever yell at the referees.
  2. If you're even going to frown at the referees, you should know the rules.
  3. If you're going to be a referee, you should know the rules better than anyone else on the field.

So without further ado, here are the laws of the game.  If you're still confused after reading them, try reading FIFA's Laws of the Game page.  Too complicated?   Try The Rules of Soccer: Simplified.  Finally, if you're that much into the rules, shouldn't you consider becoming a referee?

The Rules of AYSO

In addition to playing under FIFA rules, AYSO games are conducted according to AYSO Rules and Regulations.


See links below for AYSO guidelines relevant to each age group.  This is a great summary of rules that are unique for each age division.

Buying Equipment

Most soccer equipment (balls, shinguards, cleats) can be purchased at any local sporting goods store.  Be sure to get soccer cleats as baseball and football cleats are not acceptable.  Shinguards are required for all practices and games.  Players will not be allowed to participate without shinguards.
