  • Drop ball: The ball is out of play if it touches the referre or assistant referee without completely leaving the field of play or when it is necessary for the referee to stop the game (injury).  The play is restated with a drop ball at the spot where it hit the referee.  In the penalty area, the ball is dropped to the goalkeeper.  Outside the penalty area, the ball is dropped to the player last touching the ball.  
  • Build out area: The opposing team players must remain outside the Build-Out area on goal kicks, defensive free kick, and when the goalkeeper gains possessins of the ball with their hands.  The opposing team players must remain outside the Build-Out Area until the ball is put back into play.  Ball is in play once it leaves the penalty box.  After the ball is put back into the play, the oppossing team's players may then move into the Build-Out Area and play resumes as normal.

  • The ref will keep score of the game on game sheet and returned to the home team coach after the game. The home coach report the score to the coordinator the score.
  • Offside is not called. No “Cherry Picking!”

 

TOURNAMENT

  • During the season score is kept for every game. Regular season will determine seeding for the tournament. The points system to be used is as follows:

    • Win=3 points

    • Tie=1 point

    • Loss=0 points

    • In the event that teams are tied in points it will then go to goals against. This means in a tie the team who had less goals scored against them will rank higher.

  • The tournament will be held the last day of inhouse season, which is on 6/9

    • Seed 1 vs Seed 4

    • Seed 2 vs Seed 3

    • Winner of 1 vs 4 will play Winner of 2 vs 3

    • There will be trophies for 1st and 2nd place only

    • 5th seed and 6th seed will also play each other that day. Therefore all teams get 8 games in the season minimum (only applicable when more than 4 teams play)

  • Tie Game In the event of a tie between two teams in the semifinal match or final match there will be a 5 minute golden goal period. If the game is still a draw then there will be a shootout to determine the winner.

  • Shootouts will consist of 3 shooters from each team. After the 3 shooters have shot, the team with the most goals wins. Shooters do not have to be on the field of play to participate in the shootout. In the event that the teams are tied after 3 shooters, the kicks will go 1 for 1. All players on each team must kick before any individual player kicks for a second time.

Weather

  • If in doubt about whether games have been cancelled, check the CP Soccer website www.crownpointsoccer.org or the Crown Point Soccer Club Facebook page.
  • In case of rain or other early stoppage; (1) half played equals an official game. An unofficial or cancelled game is made up during the following week. All games times are 6 pm. The league will attempt to schedule referees for the makeup game, in an instance when no ref is available, coaches will ref the game.
   
   
   

 

  • If your team cannot play during the scheduled time (whether a scheduling issue or continued weather issues), you must inform the VP and/or your coordinator.
