Coach Information:

A draft of the game schedules will be released prior to the start of the season for review. This is your opportunity to make changes is there are any conflicts.  Please understand that coaches with multiple teams will be given priority for changes.  When the final schedule is released, there will be no further changes made by the scheduler.  If there is a need to reschedule a game, coaches will need to contact the opposing coach to make arrangements to change the day and time of the game, then contact the scheduler at scheduler@gbysl.org only after both coaches have agreed to the new game time and day. The game scheduler will then try to find an open field for the game.

Practice fields will be available two to three weeks before the first game of the season.  If you want to change your practice schedule, you can send an email to recreationaladmin@gbysl.org You will receive a field permit from the league, not all fields in the area are available to be permitted.

The GBYSL League scheduled picture days can be found on the League Calendar.  Your team will be scheduled either before or after one of your games. If you have a preference on the day and time, please send an email to recreationaladmin@gbysl.org

About the Build Out Line Rule
  • The spirit of this rule is to encourage the U9 and U10 teams to learn how to play the ball forward from the first third. Traditionally keepers have been able to just punt the ball across the midway line which was a detriment to the players learning how to progress the ball forward from defense to mid field to the attackers.
  • When the goalkeeper (Team O) has the ball in his/her hands during play, the opposing team (Team X) must move behind the build-out line until the ball is released from the goalkeeper’s possession and crosses the penalty area.
  • Once the opposing team is behind the build-out line, the goalkeeper can release the ball by passing (NOT dribbling), throwing, or rolling the ball to a teammate who is on his/her side of the build-out line or beyond the build-out line.
  • Section 1R has clarified that the goalkeeper may roll (not bounce) the ball and then pass the ball to a teammate on their side of the build out line.
  • PUNTS and DROP KICKS are not allowed from the keeper.
  • After the ball is released from the goalkeeper’s possession, the opposing team may cross the build-out line and play resumes as normal.
  • The goalkeeper releasing the ball from possession or the player taking the goal kick does not have to wait for the opposing players to move behind the build-out line.
  • The play from the goalkeeper or from the goal kick can be played to a teammate beyond the build-out line.
  • 2018 FALL Season UPDATE – on Goal Kicks, the ball must be kicked and cross the penalty area before the opposing team can cross the build out line to attack the ball.

OFFSIDE

  • The build-out line shall be used as the line to determine offside. Players cannot be penalized for an offside offense between the halfway line and the build-out line.
  • Players can be penalized for an offside offense between the build-out line and goal line.
  • ARs should position themselves with the build-out line, the second to last defender, or the ball, whichever is closest to the goal.
