Under 10 Rules

U10 play 8-on-8 with 25-minute halves. If a team shows up short of players, the opposing team either lends players or plays down to even out the game.

FIFA rules apply except as noted below:

  • There is no slide tackling permitted.

  • There is no offside.

  • Intentional Headers are not allowed. A header is treated as a dangerous play.

Substitution Rules:

  1. On your throw-in (not the other team's).

  2. On either team’s goal kick.

  3. After a goal is scored.

  4. At halftime.

  5. At water break.

  6. Injury.
