3 vs. 3 Game Information
TIME KEEPING – We will run the clock and buzzer to start and stop play time.
The clock will start as close to the start time as possible and will stop as close to the end time as possible. This will allow maximum play if both teams are ready.
We will have small goals (4 ft. x 7ft.) for 3 vs. 3 on a field that is about 25 x 33 yds.
Start your game with a kickoff as soon as both teams are ready.
Read the rules, make sure you and your players know them and follow them.
Clean up your playing area after your game.
Clock runs for about 20 minutes for each game period. Your team will get more playing time if you hustle to your field.
3 vs. 3 Game Rules
BE COURTEOUS – CONTROL YOUR OWN PLAYERS
Follow FIFA rules except the following:
Start of Game
Coaches are in charge of getting each game started as soon as both teams are ready – More playing time the sooner you’re ready.
May be taken in any direction.
Please do not assign a player to stand in front of the goal. Allow your players the freedom to run and play.
Substitutions may be made at any dead-ball situation, regardless of possession.
No Offside in 3v3 Soccer
No Slide Tackling
Players must stay upright and “on their feet” and may not make contact with an opposing player. This does not prevent players from sliding to stop/intercept a ball but NO contact can be made with opposing players.
A goal may only be scored from a touch (offensive or defensive) within a team’s offensive half of the field. There is no midfield line marked, but use your own judgement. If a player in their defensive end kicks the ball across midline and the ball hits another player (offensive or defensive) and the ball goes in the goal, a goal will be awarded.
Five Yard Rule
In all dead-ball situations, defending players must stand at least five yards away from the ball.
The ball shall be kicked into play from the sideline instead of thrown in. The ball is considered in play when the ball is touched with a foot and moves one full rotation. All kick-ins are indirect.
All dead-ball kicks (kick-ins and kick-offs) are indirect with the exception of corners.
May be taken from any point on the endline.
There are none.
CSA Teams will train for 45 minutes before or after their 3 vs. 3 matches. CSA staff including Director of Coaching Alex Rawlings along with other CSA staff members will conduct the training.
* Please keep siblings and stray soccer balls off of the fields during play.
