AYSO Area 1-P
1999 - 2000 SEASON

Allstar Tournament Guidelines


The tournament will be held on four (4) Sundays, January 9, 16, 23 and 30, 2000 for all divisions, and one (1) Saturday, January 29, 2000 for boys divisions. (Feb. 5, 6, & weeknights during the tournament are held as rain dates - if necessary, additional Saturdays and Sundays in Feb. may also be used). All regions / divisions will play on the first three (3) Sundays (& Sat.). The top four teams in each division will return the last Sunday to play in the semi-final and final games. A detailed schedule by division is attached.


World cup format with each team in every division playing every other team in their division in a round robin format on the first three (3) Sundays (& one [1] Saturday). Most teams will play two (2) games per day, with a minimum, when possible, of two (2) hours rest between games. During round robin play there will be NO OVERTIME, TIES STAND. Teams earn points per game based on the schedule below. The top four (4) teams, based on points, return the last Sunday for semi-final and championship games, played as standard FIFA games with overtimes and kicks from the mark, if needed. Winners of the championships may advance to the Section 1 tournament March 5.


The tournament will be conducted under AYSO National rules and regs, Section 1 rules and regs and Area 1-P tournament rules. (See all attached.) Any variations to these rules used by individual regions during the regular season are not in effect tournament wide. (Variations not in effect can include, but are not limited to, such things as 3/4 game play for every player, not having the same player as goal keeper the entire game, etc.) If your region requires your team to adhere to regional variations during area play, then that is for your team only. Also, per national rules, no free substitution during overtime; substitution only at the start or between periods.


An accumulated point system will be used for round robin games with points awarded as follows:

Win = 6 points

Tie = 3 points (0-0 tie scores 3 points, no shutout point)

Loss = 0 points

Shutout = 1 additional point

Goal differential = 1 additional point each, up to a maximum of 3 points. (Differential = Goals for minus

Forfeit = Scored as 1-0 = 8 points goals against)

Maximum points per game = 10

Tie breakers, if necessary, to determine top four teams to advance to semi-finals:

1. Prior head to head play.

2. Fewest goals allowed.

3. Highest total goal differential.

4. Coin toss.


Round robin games (1st three days): Semi-final / final games:

Division U-10(5): 20 min. / half, 40 min. total. Division U-10(5): 25 min. / half, 50 min. total.

Division U-12(4): 25 min. / half, 50 min. total. Division U-12(4): 30 min. / half, 60 min. total.

Division U-14(3): 30 min. / half, 60 min. total. Division U-14(3): 35 min. / half, 70 min. total.


All games: 5 minute minimum - 10 minute maximum, referee's discretion.

Overtime: (Semi-final and final games only)

Division U-10(5): 5 min. per period, 10 min. total, both periods played in their entirety.

Division U-12(4): 7 min. per period, 14 min. total, both periods played in their entirety.

Division U-14(3): 9 min. per period, 18 min. total, both periods played in their entirety.

Between the end of regulation play and the first overtime period: 3 min.

Between each overtime period and between overtime and shoot-out: 2 min.

These are not to be lengthy water and orange breaks or the schedule will fall behind.

Kicks from the penalty mark ("Shoot-out"):

15 minutes has been allocated.

Shoot-outs in semi-final games will, if possible, move to the separate shoot-out goal. Shoot-outs in final games will, if possible, take place on the field used for the game.



Teams have ten (10) minutes from the scheduled start time to be ready with a minimum of seven (7) players, or a forfeit will be declared in the opposing team’s favor.


Each coach and his / her entire team needs to report for check-in with the field official 45 minutes before the start of every game. It is the coach's responsibility to report for the check-in; the field official will not track you down. If you forget and are late, the time will come off your game. At check-in the coach will be asked for a filled out line-up card and copies of each player's region issued registration form. FAILURE TO HAVE A SIGNED IN INK REGISTRATION FORM FOR EVERY PLAYER WILL RESULT IN THAT PLAYER BEING INELIGIBLE TO PLAY. NO EXCEPTIONS! Line-up cards need to list all players on the team's roster, in uniform number order, with any absences noted and a reason stated. Each player will be checked for uniform correctness, shin guards and absence of all jewelry of any kind. (No earrings of any kind will be allowed for any reason. Friendship bracelets are at the referee's discretion.) Each player will also be asked one or more questions based on information appearing on his / her registration form to insure that the player on the form is the player presented. After the official is satisfied that the player is correct, the player will be issued a color coded wrist band. By wearing the wrist band throughout the entire tournament, team check-in at every subsequent game will go very quickly, as the player will not need to be asked any verifying information. Removal or loss of the wrist band will require that the player resubmit to the verification process to obtain a replacement. All players must have a wrist band, of the proper color, to be eligible to take the field. Any attempt to present a player as being someone else or a "ringer", whether caught at check-in or anytime later, will result in the team forfeiting that game, the suspension of that player, and the suspension of the coach. Late arriving players still must be checked-in by the field official, verified and a wrist band issued or checked. After check-in is completed any changing of uniforms will require a new check-in. Any changing of players is prohibited and will result in the team's forfeit of that game.


The rain-out phone number is 310-559-9278. If you are in doubt about the game being played, call. DO NOT ASSUME THAT BECAUSE IT IS RAINING AT YOUR HOUSE THAT THE GAMES ARE CANCELED. CALL AND CHECK. Do not forfeit because you made a wrong assumption. Entire rained out days will probably shift to the next weekend. PARTIAL RAINED OUT DAYS WILL PROBABLY BE PLAYED AT NIGHT DURING THE WEEK. You will be notified.


Remember that AYSO soccer should be fun for everyone. Respect the players, your opponents, their coaches and parents and most of all the referees. Offer the referees water and oranges at half-time and game's end. Anyone exhibiting unsporting behavior will be told to leave the fields. Please pick-up all trash, we loose our permits for littered fields; we have no maids. NO DOGS OR OTHER PETS ARE ALLOWED AT THE FIELDS!


Posted at the field and at the Area 1-P website: Also, by calling 310-837-9138 you can hear the results of the tournament. Scores will be posted here after approximately 7 p.m. game days. You may call this number 24 hours a day.
