Games at the Dome will be played by outdoors rules
For any broad ranging questions please refer to the FIFA Laws of the Game. This is not our official rule book, but instead a detailed guide of general soccer rules.
If you are unsure of any rule, please contact the front desk before the game. We ask that any complaints or issues that you have during the game please be saved until an appropriate time after the game has ended. We do our best to keep our referees accountable and professional, but there will always be mistakes and missed calls. Please keep this in mind when viewing the matches. “Everyone must respect the match officials and their decisions, remembering and respecting that referees are human and will make mistakes”- Taken from FIFA’s Laws of the Game
Teams must submit official team roster to the office before the first game of the session.
Player(s) may not be removed from the roster. A player may be added to the roster only by approval of the building administrator and done 48 hrs. prior to the game. After a teams 4th game no players may be added. Roster size is limited to 18 players per team.
Players may play for two teams in each division. However, if a player plays on two teams, he/she must indicate which is his/her primary team for the game in which the two teams play each other.
All players must be registered and waiver signed before stepping on the field. Liability for this will rest with team representative.
A player used as a substitute can be added to a roster, but it must be done 48 hours prior to the game. If a team has a player that is not on the roster, the team will have to forfeit the game regardless of the actual outcome.
All teams must have a rostered coach at each game. Three coaches may be rostered for each team. Coaches must be 21 years or older. A roster check may be done before each game in order to verify presence of coach and registered players.
The equipment of a player is a team uniform, shin guards, and soccer specific footwear. A player's footwear may be cleats or turfs. Also, footwear must have non-marking soles. Players shall not be permitted to wear necklaces, chains, earrings, or bracelets. Rings and other jewelry shall be removed. Any cast worn must be properly padded to satisfaction of the referee. Players will not be allowed to participate until their equipment meets the approval of the referee. A caution shall be given to the offender who enters the game having failed to carry out the equipment adjustment.
Teams are required to have matching jerseys or t-shirts. The goalkeeper shall wear colors that distinguish him from field players and the referee. The home team must change if there is a color conflict or if the referee deems the change necessary.
A game ball must be provided by either team before the match begins. The Soccer Centre is not responsible for providing a game ball.
Substitutions can occur on any stoppage of play but must be motioned on by the referee. All substitutes should stand at the midline to indicate that they are ready to enter the field of play. It is up to the ref to decide when and if a sub is allowed onto the field of play. This allows for the game to flow and to continue at an appropriate pace. There will be times where subbing on an out of bounds would disrupt the game and the referee is able to allow play to continue even if the subs are at the midline.
Any red card will result in the player being ejected from the field of play and the team will then play with a man down until the final whistle.
An ejected coach may not, from the time of his ejection until the conclusion of the game, have any communication with the team's players in the arena. The game will be forfeited unless there is another rostered coach present.
Suspensions for any red cards will be issued on a case to case basis. Not every red card will result in a ban. We understand that clubs and teams are using this indoor time to prepare for the outdoor season and for most non-violent offences a ban will not occur. The referees and Soccer Centre management will convene to decide if the offence necessitates a ban and will contact the club with their decision.
U6-U8= 4v4 with 4 field players

If a team wants to reschedule a game, the coach or manager has to first contact the office and find out dates and times that the field is available. Then, the coach/manager has to contact the opposing coach/manager to see if they will reschedule. After a new date and time has been agreed upon, BOTH coaches must contact the office to okay the game change. No games will be changed until both coaches have contacted the office. The Dome staff will do their best to facilitate the reschedule, however it is up to the teams to get in their changes. Any games that are not rescheduled will result in a forfeit for the team that originally postponed the game with the exception of opposing coach/managers refusal to cooperate. If the opposing team will not cooperate, the Dome staff will intercede and arbitrate.
