What if there are not enough coaches?
If there are not enough coaches we will be forced to close registration or refund those players without coaches.
Will there be referees at the games?
Yes. There will be certified referees at each match when available. If certified referees are not available we will substitute staff coaches for refs.
Are players allowed to head the ball?
Yes, players are allowed to head the ball. However, we have maintained several rule modifications that limited opportunities to head the ball.
What about the other rule changes?
We follow US Soccer rules for 7v7. That's why punting and long goal kicks are not allowed. Requiring shorter passes develops players' abilities to pass and maintain possession. At SVSC we extended the spirit of that rule to all free kicks. We utilize "pass-in" rather than throw-ins for similar reasons. This modification is not uncommon. Futsal/indoor soccer do not play throw-ins at any level. Throw-ins are an easy skill to learn if players choose to continue playing at levels where they are part of the game.
The SVSC Blue League is a recreational soccer league for boys and girls from U13-U15. Players play an eight game season. Teams may form themselves prior to registration or players may be placed on open teams.
