SNSA Rule Books & League Policies

FIFA Laws of the Game

The rules that govern league play in SNSA recreational leagues are based on the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) "Laws of the Game", with sigificant variations specific to recreational soccer and small-sided games.


SNSA Modified Laws Summary Sheet

SNSA follows the FIFA Laws of the Game;  however, some rules have been modified to accommodate the youth game and smaller play formats.  Click on the link below for a summary of rules modifications for the various play formats.

SNSA Rostering Policy

SNSA has adopted a rostering policy to govern the assignment of players to teams in our HUYS and SHU youth recreational leagues.  While we do our best to accommodate a player's coach or player preference requests, we also have an obligation to consider other criteria, including roster size and competitive balance within and age gender group.  Click on the link below to review the SNSA Rostering Policy.

SNSA Club Player Dual Registration Policy

In September 2008, SNSA established a policy to prohibit players that are registered with competitive club teams from registering with an SNSA recreational league. This policy does not affect the ability of an SNSA recreational player to guest-play for a competitive club team for a tournament or special event.

SNSA League Uniform Policy

In a policy established December 1, 2006, the SNSA Board voted to require all Henderson United, Southern Highlands United, Mini Kickers and High School Spring Training teams to wear the league-issued uniform.  Click on the link below for policy details.
