If nominating more than one team please distribute players as evenly as possible as not to make one team very strong.

There is a 2 team maximum entry per school per division.

If you would like to enter more than two teams please check with the convener if any extra teams can be accommodated. Where possible teams will be accepted into the draw, however there maybe restrictions due to ground availability.

Each school is to provide 1 referee per team to officiate their games. The convener in each instance will contact local secondary schools to secure some student referees – schools should NOT make contact with secondary schools to secure referees.

SOCCER GALA DAY - CARNIVAL RULES & ORGANISATION
  • The following rules may be adjusted by conveners according to number of entries received.
  • All matches will be conducted as per the rules of the Australian Soccer Association unless altered by conveners. The competition will be on a participation level. No point score will be kept. All participating schools will receive certificates which will be forwarded to team managers on the day of the carnival.
  • The first game will commence at 8.45 am sharp. All schools are asked to assemble by 8.30 am when a team managers’ and referees’ meeting will take place.
  • Games will consist of two 10 minute halves with a 2 minute break at the end of each game. There will be a 1 minute half time break. A hooter will sound for half time and the teams will change ends and recommence playing. A hooter will also sound to indicate the beginning and end of the game to the referees. It is the referee’s whistle that commences and finishes the game. Conveners have the right to vary game timings. Specific details will be outlined when draws are distributed.
  • Any team failing to take the field within five minutes of the hooter will have forfeited that game. 
  • There is to be a maximum of 12 players in each team.
  • Team managers/coaches should monitor games and curb any aggressive behaviour immediately by replacing any players. It will be the teacher’s decision if the student in question can take the field again.

  • It is anticipated that medical staff or St John’s Ambulance will be providing first aid treatment on the day. The blood bin rule will apply and therefore any child who is bleeding will need to leave the field to be treated. It would be advisable to have band-aids/first aid on hand in case of minor injuries.
  • Each SCHOOL is to provide one competent referee per team to officiate their game.
  • Referees are to be distinguishable from teams participating in the game.
  • Parents may officiate as referees.
  • Each team is to supply a soccer ball and take this ball to all games.
