All games have rules. In soccer, rules are called "Laws."

AYSO plays by the FIFA Laws of the Game, with minor changes due to the fact that youths are playing, i.e., the fields, ball, and goal structures are smaller; fewer players on the field; substitution breaks added to allow for playing time requirement (3/4 of game in Davis). A summary of age-specific rules is here: Davis AYSO age-specific rules

AYSO is a member of the United States Soccer Federation and follows USSF's directives.
