Soccer Rules



It is just as important for coaches to teach the rules of soccer – the “Laws of the Game” – to their players as it is to teach skills and tactics.  Coaches must know all of the rules and their applications completely in order to do so.  As such, it is strongly recommended that coaches print out the Laws of the Game book and read and study it thoroughly.  The link for the IFAB website which goes directly to the Laws of the Game book is contained under “The Rule Book: Laws of the Game” tab.  It is further recommended that coaches contact their local organization for referees and attend training sessions.
