Build Out Rule for U10 – 7 v 7 Interpretation
For all referees working 7 v 7 matches: The ball is in play when the Goalkeeper releases it into play by passing, throwing or rolling the ball into play. The opponents may cross the build out line when this occurs.
After speaking with ENYYSA Director of Coaching about the rule interpretation in how it is written, the ENYSYA Competitions would like to have a first touch by the Goalkeepers teammate before he opponents leave the build out line. Know the league you are working and understand their rules of competition. The coaches in ENYYSA have been given this understanding of the rule.
