MAPLE 7v7 RULES

Maple Referees,

 

the build out line for 7v7 play.  Please refer to the 7v7 guidelines (rules) linked here:

 

http://www.maplesoccer.com/default/assets/File/7%20v%207%20USSF%20Player%20Development%20Initiatives%20v%202.pdf

 

Please read the 7v7 guidelines thoroughly; refer to the field diagrams as well.  Take special notice of the following guidelines:

  • When the goalkeeper has the ball, either during play (from the opponent) or from a goal kick, the opposing team must move behind the build out line until the ball is put into play
  • Once the opposing team is behind the build out line, the goalkeeper can pass, throw or roll the ball into play (punting is not allowed)
  • The build out line will also be used to denote where offside offenses can be called
  • Players cannot be penalized for an offside offense between the halfway line and the build out line
  • Players can be penalized for an offside offense between the build out line and goal line
  • If there is not a build out line drawn on the field, simply place cones on the touchline at each end of the field midway between the penalty box and halfway line.  We have to be on the same page on this.

    CONFLICT OF INTEREST

    Conflict of Interest

    In addition to the U.S. Soccer Federation Polices 531-1 and 531-6, officials should take steps to prevent any appearance of a conflict of interest.

    • Not officiate in any match where there is a vested interest
    • “Vested interest” is defined as when the official or a member of the official’s family (spouse, child or parent) or that person’s team may be affected by the outcome of the proceeding or match.
