In order to participate in events hosted by Square ONE Sports, we require participants to be official members.
Shin guards are mandatory! You will not be allowed to play without shin guards. Players will wear soccer cleats that do not have metal studs.
No, we do not permit slide tackles. Player safety is paramount. To minimize dangerous play and injuries, we will not be allowing players to slide on the ground. Accidentals will be subject to the referee’s digression.
Only exception to the rule pertains to each team’s designated goalkeeper. Goalies are allowed to slide to play the ball within the goalie box.
Two 20-minute halves, running clock, unless specified otherwise.
No Grace Period. Games start and end on time. The clock will start whether the team is ready or not. Be dressed and warmed up at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled game.
The clock will run during player injuries, unless the official deems the injury as serious. The official may also stop the clock for other circumstances deemed appropriate.
HALFTIME. No more than 5 minutes and no less than 1 minute.
Games ending in a tie will remain a tie.
Cancellations depend upon the playability of a field, not whether it is raining. We will always make an effort to give you a few hours notice, but that may not always be possible, so it is the participant’s responsibility to check the following sources:
League Manager: 304-840-5373
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING. In case of lightning near a field, games will be stopped immediately and observe at least a 30 minute wait period to determine when it is safe to resume play again. This may cause a delay in the schedule or require some or all games to be canceled depending on the duration of lightning.
RESCHEDULING. If a match is cancelled due to weather, we will try our best to reschedule that match at a later date. However, the rescheduling of a match is subject to each team’s future availability.
To avoid penalty fees, you must contact Square ONE Sports at least 24 hours before your scheduled games.
Calling Square ONE Sports and leaving a message is NOT acceptable notice; you must speak to someone.
If you leave a message or send email, it is NOT considered notification unless you receive a reply.
To call in a forfeit, contact the League Manager at 304-840-5373.
