Youth Soccer

Rules for Youth Soccer

Rules for Youth Soccer is available as a Kindle E-book. 

Please contact me directly at for paperback copies. If you are a referee instructor and wish to use Rules for Youth Soccer in conjunction with your classes, I can make printed copies available at my cost.

Rules for Youth Soccer is intended to be used in conjunction with an introductory referee training course and as a manual for referees who are primarily assigned games in the Under-12 and younger divisions.  The Laws of the Game are presented in a concise and easy-to-read format with bits of advice interspersed. The laws are not presented in their entirety. Rather, I have attempted to address the parts of each law that are needed for ages 12 and younger. It is a work in progress and your suggestions are welcome. Please send your ideas to

For the complete Laws of the Game and recent Law changes, please see the IFAB Laws of the Game.

Thank you,
Keith Kurtz
