The basic compulsory equipment of a player is mandated by FIFA Law #4 and comprises the following separate items:
A jersey or shirt with sleeves
There is a huge size difference between many of the fields and goals we are using but unfortunately there are not enough fields of the recommended size to use.
Teams must make-do with the fields as assigned.
Sometimes they are larger and sometimes they are smaller.

U7-8 Mini Rules NOTE:
COYSA’s policy is to have teams split into two at the field and then there will be two simultaneous games played where there are two 12 minute halves. Then another two games of two 12 minute halves will be played (48 minute total game time).
Coaches are allowed on the field with the players at both U7 and U8.
Please help set up and put away the nets at all the fields. Do not rely on the "home" teams to do it all.
COACHES MAY BE ON THE FIELD DURING GAMES AT U7 and U8
U9-10 Mini Rules NOTE:
There are no requirements for U9-10 teams to have corner flags or nets.
COYSA has adopted a policy of size 3 balls for GU10 and under and size 3 balls for BU9 and under. Boys U10 will use size 4 balls. Effective our 2014 season, all U9s and 10s will play with a size 4 ball.
Some U9 and U10 School District fields will not be lined this soccer season. Fields will needed to be marked with cones. Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind (BCSA recommendations):
Field width: 30 meters (min) 36 meters (max). This is approximately 18 paces from the middle of the goal to the corner flag.
Goal area: 10 meters (approx. 11 paces) from the inside of the mini goal post towards the corner flag and 10 meters (approx. 11 paces) into the field.
"Absent or Missing" Ref Procedure
Due to the shortage of fields and officials, games will not be rescheduled due to the absence of a referee. If no referee is available for a game, the coaches of the teams must agree to appoint someone to referee that game. ALL GAMES MUST START ON TIME.
