RULES - are on the BC Soccer website: https://www.bcsoccer.net/bylaws
STANDINGS are determined:
Firstly at points (determined by the Win/Loss/Tie record).
If there's a tie, then it goes to the result of the head-to-head game.
If still tied, then it goes to goal differential (max 5 goals per game).
If still tied, then it goes to goals for.
SAME GENDER REQUIREMENT: BC Soccer rules dictate that Team officials of any youth team shall consist of a minimum of one member of the same gender as the players on the team. This team official must be present on the bench.
SPECTATORS: At games both teams must be on one side of the field with all spectators on the other
CORNER FLAGS / NETS: - All U11-U18 teams must provide and set up a net and corner flags for half a field at all scheduled games.
SCORE REPORTING: Both coaches (win or lose) need to email all game results within 24 hours to email@example.com Please put the game number in the subject line. The referee submits the original game sheet and the website standings are then updated.
GAME SHEETS: To be provided by first team listed on the schedule for all games (your Club will have these for you). Please complete in full and clearly include the game number (on the schedule), date, time, etc, first and last names of players as well as the coach’s name. Give it to the opposition with enough time for them to complete their roster and present to referee before kick-off. Stickers for rosters are not allowed. Remember to SIGN the game sheet at the end of the game to verify the recorded score and any misconducts.
ID CARDS: Required for all players and coaches as of May 01. The rule is no card, no play, no exceptions. Cards must be properly completed, including photo, and be presented to the referee before the game along with the game sheet. It is the team’s responsibility to ensure they get their ID cards back. Your Club will provide these.
ABSENT OR MISSING REF: For any game where a referee hasn’t shown, teams need to work out who will officiate the game. Games need to start on time will not be rescheduled.
REFEREES: There’s a zero tolerance of abuse of officials, including yelling at them. If you’re unhappy, please do not approach an official at any time. Note the ref’s name, game number, date, time etc and submit an email with your concerns to our Head Referee, Al: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Ref Mentoring Program will use constructive criticism to work with an official.
FORFEITS: If you haven’t enough players for a game (minimum 7) please show up with the available players, decide if you need to forfeit or not, then mix players from both teams and play - that way the kids (and refs) are still getting a game!! If you absolutely need to out and out cancel, please notify the opposition, COYSA email@example.com and the Ref Scheduler firstname.lastname@example.org know as soon as possible. We still have to pay the field cost and if we give refs less than 24 hours notice, they are still paid. In the event of a forfeit, the score will be recorded as a 5-0 win for the other team.
RESCHEDULING: Games will not be rescheduled unless the game is called by a Referee due to hazardous conditions. Coaches may not arrange a reschedule amongst themselves.
DISCIPLINE: Any red card in a game is an automatic one game (the next game) suspension. Please note on the game sheet that a player has sat off and ensure the ref verifies it. If the Discipline Committee determines further suspension is required, you will be contacted by them via email. If a player receives 3 yellows in the season, this is also an automatic one game suspension and you will be contacted by email by the Discipline Committee. Again, make note on a game sheet for verification.
PETS: Animals are not allowed on any sports fields for games or practices.
JEWELLERY: No jewellery of any kind is allowed to be worn. This is a FIFA rule (Law 4). There is no allowance for taping. Medical alert items are not considered jewellery.
PLAYER PICK UP - If a team is short players for a game (minimum required to play is 7), players may be brought up from within your Club from one age group below (with coach permission) to make a maximum of 12 players (including pickups). If you have more than that show up, the ‘picked-up’ player may not play. Players brought up must not miss their own game to play for another team. If a team is still short players, then coaches are asked to mix the players up and have a scrimmage to allow those that are able to attend to have a game. Players may NOT be brought up for the Kelowna Cup. A player may only be picked up by your team a maximum of three times during the season.
TOURNAMENTS - COYSA supports you taking your team to tournaments as long as it doesn’t interfere with league play (cannot miss league play to attend a tournament). The rules and guidelines for tournaments are on the COYSA website.
