Shoreside Soccer League Rules
All players must wear shin guards during all practices and games. The player's socks must cover the shin guards. A size 3 ball will be used for Pre-K/K and 1st and 2nd grade teams; a size 4 ball will be used for the 3rd and 4th grade age group.
A neutral area will be marked with a semicircular line of 10-foot radius. This neutral area means nothing in the Pre-K/K age group. In all other age groups, no player may enter the neutral area.
During a penalty kick, all players must be behind the kicker and must remain there until the ball comes to rest or passes over the line. Should the ball stop in the neutral area after being played by the attacking team, a goal kick will be awarded to the defending team.
Each game shall consist of two 20-minute halves and a 5-minute halftime. Each player present at the game must participate 50% of the total playing time each game.
