The Laws of the Game

  1. Never, ever yell at the referees.
  2. If you're even going to frown at the referees, you should know the rules.
  3. If you're going to be a referee, you should know the rules better than anyone else on the field.

So without further ado, here are the laws of the game. (Tambien en Espaņol) If you're still confused after reading them, try reading FIFA's Laws of the Game page.  Too complicated?   Try The Rules of Soccer: Simplified. Finally, if you're that much into the rules, shouldn't you consider becoming a referee?

The Rules of AYSO

In addition to playing under FIFA rules, AYSO games are conducted according to AYSO Rules and Regulations.

Team banners give your team an identity and add to your team spirit. On artificial turf fields, such as Bechet or Hoover fields, you cannot use stakes to hold up the banners. Stands that do not penetrate the field must be used. Banner stands have been purchased for 49er field which is used by U10 and will be available to attach your banner to. See Zaavy's Banner Stand to see what is being provided. Other teams have made stands out of PVC pipe.

Team banners are most enjoyed when they are made by the team itself.  However, given that this is Silicon Valley and no one has any time, commercial banners are also available from:

Buying Equipment

Most soccer equipment (balls, shinguards, cleats) can be purchased at any local sporting goods store.  Be sure to get soccer cleats as baseball cleats are not acceptable.
