Below are the rules for the CYSL U10 League. These rules are based on a recommended program from theUSYSA plus additions by a CYSL U10 Committee. The purpose of the program is to provide atmosphere where the players feel free to try a lot of different techniques without being concerned about winning or losing. Coaching emphasis should be skills and ball control by the individual player. Fewer players are being put on a small field to ensure that each player has a lot of touches of the ball. By extending the small field concept to the Ul0s, we expect the players to have better skills at the U12 level when they should begin to learn tactics
