Soccer Rules

Here you will find PYSL's dedicated section on the Laws of the Game. In this section you can read the latest updated version of the Laws which were last modified in 2012 at our Annual Piney Wood Soccer League board meeting.

Practice Tips

The game of soccer is an exciting and fun sport to coach, referee, watch and play! In this section, we have provided some good information that all coaches and you, the parents; need to know in order to help your young players develop properly.

Coaches who have participated in state level or national level coaching education courses have learned that, to coach effectively, it is important to understand the four components of coaching soccer. You benefit from this very same knowledge because it helps you understand the game and why the coach does what he does in training sessions and games.
