St. Joe Kickers' Sommerfest August 5

(July 8, 2017) St. Joe Kickers' annual Sommerfest will be held on Saturday, August 5. The club will have food, drinks, music and free admission to all of the soccer games played that day. Teams are guaranteed three matches with a championship game to decide each division's winners (champions receive commemorative t-shirts). Here are the guidelines:

DIVISIONS Open (all ages and genders)

Coed (all ages --- minimum of two females on field)


TEAM FEE - $100
ROSTER SIZE - 14 maximum
DIVISION SIZE - 8 teams maximum (first eight teams to pay in full)


RULES
7 v 7 (six field players, one goalkeeper). 2 x 23 with 5 minute halftime. Veteran players (over 30) may also play in Open Division; any woman may play in either division. Field size will be approx. 80 yds x 45 yds. Open Division uses full-sized goals; Veterans' & Coed Divisions use 7 x 21 and 6 x 18 goals.

No offside; "three-line" rule is in effect (no ball can cross in air from team's own defensive-third into opponent's defensive third - infraction results in IFK for opponent). Throw-ins, goal kicks, corner kickers to be used as normal.

Proper uniform must be worn (including shinguards); "away" team must change due to colour conflict (pinnies acceptable).

3 points for win, 1 point for tie, 0 points for loss, -1 point for forfeit. First tie-breaker is head-to-head competition; followed by least goals against, aggregate goal difference, goals for.
