Kokomo Soccer Club

Guidelines


The Kokomo Soccer Club uses small sided games for recreation soccer matches. By using smaller fields and smaller team sizes, players have more opportunities to contribute during each soccer match. Click here to view the match specific details for each of our recreation soccer divisions.


Team Formation


  • Teams will be coed.
  • Age cutoff will be July 31. See the Age Chart to determine which division the player will be placed. Click here for age chart.
  • Teams will be formed with the goal of balanced teams. Rankings are supplied by coaches. In absence of rankings, players will be allocated by age & gender.
  • Children of the head coach and assistant coach will be placed on the same team. No other requests will be honored for team rosters.
  • For U6, U8, and U15 divisions, scores will be recorded, but no standings will be maintained.
  • For the U10 and U12 divisions, standings will be maintained in order to establish seeds for a year end tournament. The teams will play a single elimination tournament and the first and second place teams will receive trophies. Only KSC recreational teams will play in the tournament. 


Gear For Players


  • No jewelry is allowed during games or practices. This includes watches, earrings, and necklaces. Medical bracelets are allowed but must not be a danger to the player or other players.
  • Shinguards must be worn underneath socks for all games or practices.
  • Shoes or soccer cleats must be worn. Football cleats are not acceptable unless the front, toe cleat is removed.
  • Casts are permitted for the recreation league. They must be covered and padded in such a way so not to endanger other players. It is at the discretion of the referee to determine if the protection of the cast is acceptable. 


Coaches/Referees

 

  • In the U6 and U8 divisions, there are no referees assigned for matches. The head coaches are responsible for whistling infractions.
  • For the U10 division and higher, the Kokomo Soccer Club will assign referees for matches.
