  • U7/U8 and U9/U10 rules for goal kicks and kick ins: On a goal kick, the defending team must remain behind centre until the ball has been touched a second time from the keeper's goal kick. In other words, it must be passed in and touched before the defending team can cross over centre. On kick-ins, players must remain a distance of 6 yards away.
