Whether you are a first time coach with little background in the game, or a veteran with years of experience, you will need to understand these very simple rules.
Until now we have been very fragmented as mini soccer rules in Ontario have been interpreted differently in terms of number of players playing to the size of field and goal sizes used— not the most conducive to what was best for the youngster’s soccer development. These new standardized rules will help all the U’10 players to learn and enjoy the mini game especially as the fragmentation will be eliminated and all Ontario U’10 mini players will be enjoying the same game.
Tiny-Tot Soccer is for 4, 5, and 6 year-old children. The game will be played 4 v 4, with 3 players on each side and one goalie on each side. The field dimensions should be 30 x 20 yards.
Tiny-Tot Soccer has very simple game rules and regardless to what soccer purists may say the Tiny-Tot Soccer players are only interested in having “Fun”, getting a good kick of the ball, and possibly scoring a goal.
The recommended field size is directly related to the age of the player, allowing them an equal opportunity of getting touches on the ball and doing so with very few rules.
