U10 tournament - 2014 (Last updated 9/13/13 @ 7:00 PM)

Pool Play Pools & Standings Pool Play Schedule - Boys Pool Play Schedule - Girls Playoffs Playoff Schedule

Coaches & assistants: Please be sure to read ALL of the information and make sure that you understand it. If you have a question please ask, don't assume.

Overview

The U10 tournament is designed to maximize the amount of games that teams will play and consists of two phases: pool play and sudden death playoffs. Pool play takes place on Saturday Oct. 25th and Nov. 1st. Sudden death playoffs are held on Saturday Nov. 8th with the finals on Saturday Nov. 15th. All games are played on 49er with the exception of the late games on Sat. Oct. 25 and Nov. 1 which will be played on Bechet. The winner of the boy's tournament and the winner of the girl's tournament advance to the Area 2N tournament which will be held on December 6th & 7th in Foster city.

Coaches meeting

A MANDATORY pre-tournament coaches meeting will be held on Thursday Oct. 24th, from 7:30 – 9:00 PM. The meeting will be at the main gym at Red Morton park (1120 Roosevelt) in rooms 3 & 4.

Failure to send a team representative will result in a one (1) point deduction during pool play. At the meeting we will go over how to rate players as well as the tournament rules. You will need to turn in your player ratings prior to your first tournament match. Failure to do so, will result in a one (1) point deduction. Our apologies for the stick, but that is our only way of making sure this gets done.

General Comments

  1. Please keep the AYSO philosophies of Good Sportsmanship and Positive Coaching in mind during the tournament.
  2. Parents, friends, distant relatives etc. are the coach's responsibility. Please remind your parents that if they bring relatives & friends to the game that they need to behave in a respectful manner.
  3. Alcohol and smoking are not allowed at AYSO events.
  4. Dogs, BBQs, food, sunflower seeds etc. (see the city signs posted at the fields) are not allowed on the synthetic all weather fields.
  5. Problems or issues that may arise will be resolved by the tournament committee, which shall consist of the Division Coordinator, the Coach Administrator, the Referee Administrator, the CVPA, and the Regional Commissioner.
  6. All decisions are final and no protests will be allowed.

Pool Play

Teams are divided into pools based loosely on season performance. The top tier teams are randomly assigned to seperate pools, the next tier is distributed likewise (i.e. randomly), etc. This is done to create pools that are as balanced and random as possible. Each team will play four games, two on each weekend of pool play. Teams in a pool of 5 will play every other team in their pool once. Teams in a pools of 4 will play every other team in their pool once and will then play their 4th game(s) against teams from other short handed pools (it's complicated ...)

Games are scheduled from 8:00 AM until sunset in 40 minutes intervals. Due to this very tight schedule, you must have your team present and READY TO PLAY (at least 5 players, line up card ready, etc.) 15 minutes prior to the match. Please show up at the U10 shed, located near the 49er field, to be checked in. A forfeit will be declared if a team is unable to play (insufficient # of players, not checked in, no coach, no medical forms, etc.) within 5 minutes PRIOR of the scheduled start time. Teams must take the field immediately upon termination of the previous match. When your match is done, please leave the field and its vicinity as quickly as possible. The schedule is exceptionally tight so please help us make the tournament run smoothly.

  • Matches will consist of two 15 minutes halves
  • Half time will be 5 minutes and teams must return PROMPTLY to the field when summoned by the referee
  • Substitutions will ONLY take place at the half
  • Players that are present are required to play at least half of the match
  • For teams with a roster of ten (10): All players must play at least one (1) complete match and six (6) of your players must play at least two (2) complete matches
  • For teams with a roster of nine (9): All players must play at least two (2) complete matches
  • Note: Two half matches DO NOT make a complete one - show up to the coaches meeting if you have questions!
  • An absent player will be counted as having played the whole match
  • A player who arrives during the first half will be credited with having played that half but must still play the 2nd half
  • A different goalkeeper must be used in each half (goalkeeper changes will NOT be allowed during play except for injury)
  • Teams are not required to play down
  • There are no second chances on throw-ins or other incorrect restarts (the LOTG will be applied)
  • All other U10 rules apply
  • Matches may end in a tie

Points will be awarded/deducted and disciplinary actions taken as follows:

  • +6 points for a win
  • +3 points for a tie
  • 0 points for a loss
  • +1 point for each goal scored up to a maximum of 3
  • +1 point for a shutout (a 0 – 0 tie does not count as a shutout)
  • A forfeit will be scored as a 1 – 0 match in favor of the team that was present. If both teams forfeit then neither will receive any points.
  • –1 point for each caution (Yellow Card)
  • –2 points for each send-off (Red Card) Note: a 2nd caution in the same match will be counted as a total deduction of –2 points
  • –4 points if a coach or assistant coach is expelled
  • –2 points per substitution violation - a team with more than 4 substitution voilatons may be disqualified
  • The outcome of an abandoned or terminated match will be determined by the tournament committee
  • Additional points may be deducted, matches declared forfeit, or teams disqualified, if the tournament committee deems that necessary to deal with egregious situations
  • Player sanctions may also be imposed for misconduct, bad sportsmanship, or substitution violations as determined by the tournament committee

Tie breakers will be as follows:

  1. Head-to-head play
  2. Least points deducted
  3. Least goals allowed
  4. Most goals scored
  5. Kicks from the penalty mark (we hope that it does not come to this... The time and place will be determined by the Division Director)

Coaches, you need to plan your substitutions over the 4 matches to avoid having problems. On any given game the referees will only check to see if all players play at least 1/2 of the game. It is your responsibility to make sure that your players play the proper amount of complete games. Line up cards will be reviewed at the end of pool play and points will be deducted for any substitution violations. We have had teams that did not move on from pool play because of substitution violations. If a player arrives late, is absent, leaves early, is injured etc., you should double check and make sure that this information is recorded by the referee on the lineup card. *** A team with more than four (4) substitution violations MAY BE DISQUALIFIED. ***


Pools & Standings

The top two (2) teams from each pool advance. Since the girls only have 3 pools, of the remaining teams, the two (2) remaining teams with the most points will also advance.

Playoffs

8 teams will participate in the playoffs which will consist of quarter-finals, semi-finals, a consolation game for the 3rd and 4th place finishers, and a final. Boys games will take place on 49er field B, and Girls games on 49er field A.

  • Matches are single elimination
  • Matches will consist of two twenty five (25) minute halves
  • Half time will be 5 minutes and teams must return PROMPTLY to the field when summoned by the referee
  • Substitutions will take place approximately midway throught the first and second halves and at half time
  • No player will sit out two (2) quarters until all players have sat out one (1) quarter (referees will monitor this)
  • Players arriving late will be credited with having played each quarter that they are late
  • Playing down is not required
  • No one player may be a goalkeeper for more than two quarters (goalkeeper changes will NOT be allowed during play except for injury)
  • If a match is tied at the end of regulation play, two seven (7) minute overtime periods will be played. (Note: there is no golden goal).
  • Free substitution will be allowed during OT but only at throw-ins (on your possession), goal kicks (either team), kickoffs (either team), or injuries (only the injured player). Remember to get the referee's approval before substituting.
  • If the match is still tied at the end of the two overtime periods, then the winner will be determined by kicks from the penalty mark.
  • Only those players on the field of play at the end of OT may participate in kicks from the penalty mark. Coaches and substitutes must stay off the field during that time.
  • The outcome of an abandoned or terminated match will be determined by the tournament committee
  • A match may be declared forfeit, or teams disqualified, if the tournament committee deems that necessary to deal with egregious situations
  • Player sanctions may also be imposed for misconduct, bad sportsmanship, or substitution violations as determined by the tournament committee


Playoff Schedule (Boys & Girls)

The boys playoff births are set as below. The girls are more complicated with the playoff births based on standings: All the first place teams from each pool and the top 2nd place team are assigned to different quarter-finals. The other teams are assigned to a quarter-final subject to the constraint that no team will play another team from the same pool. In addition, the top 2nd place team will be assigned a quarter-final that avoids it meeting the first place team from its pool in a semi-final. If possible, an attempt is also made to minimize the possibility that teams from the same pool meet in the semi finals.
