Little Kickers - In-House for 5U-8U

5U-6U Rules of the Game

These 5U-6UU  rules are a guideline and meant to help everyone to instruct U6 to play the same, and better prepare them for U8. They are not an exact science in 5U-6U, so do not stress about getting every part perfect, just try your best and everyone learns together!  Do not over-officiate. We want the kids to have FUN!  Let the game of soccer be the teacher, and gradually providing exposure to the nuance of the rules.

ISL Level 3 Central League Rules

9U-10U Changes and Reminders

  • Changes for Pella Soccer Club - Fall 2017
    • We moved to the ISL Level 3 Central League which is managed by Iowa Soccer.  This is the same league that our 11U-19U Rec players compete in and Iowa Soccer has now expanded the league to 9U-10U.  For those familiar with Eastside Coalition, all soccer clubs from our Eastside Coalition moved to ISL Level 3 Central League, and there will be many more soccer clubs also.  The key changes are that 9U-10U now also have the Guest Player Allowance to be able to request guest players by noon Friday if their roster will be low, and the score will be kept and entered in Tourney Machine by the home game coach.

  • U.S. Soccer changes that started Fall 2016
    •  7v7 - 10U now plays 7v7 instead of 6v6- 5 field plus goalkeeper.

    • Max roster increased from 12 to 14.

    • Offside is now in effect for the 10U age group. It will be monitored for obvious offsides. If club wants to provide AR(s) for these games it will be at club availability and discretion. Please educate coaches and parents that some calls will be missed. its just part of the education of the game.

    • Build Out Line - all opposing players must retreat to behind the Build Out Line on goal kicks.  Iowa Soccer has designated the Half Line as the Build Out Line.
