Game FormatThe game is played field 7 vs. 7, under a modified FIFA rule system. The game is played in 4 quarters. Substitutions are done at each quarter, and there is a short break after the second quarter.
Team FormationThe teams are formed via a draft. The player ratings are provided to all coaches prior to the draft. There are no more than 9 players on a team.
OtherReferees refrain from but still can issue foul yellow cards. Red cards are extremely rare but can be enforced. The build-out line is also used in 10U. Foul kicks are direct kicks. Bad throw-ins from the touchline are now considered as infractions and given a throw to the other team. The corner and goal kicks are used in this division but there are no headers.
