Soccer in Northern West Virginia will be known as a sporting activity where courtesy, common sense, and good sportsmanship prevail. The Youth Board of Directors issue these Rules and Regulations to supplement the current FIFA Laws of the Game and US Youth Soccer rules and are to be followed uniformly. The purpose of these Rules and Procedures is to encourage the playing of youth soccer by providing a uniform and organized standard.
Sportsmanship and fair play is the standard in all instances whether enumerated in a written rule or not. Harassment, abuse, or assault of referees is not to be tolerated; the right of each player, coach, team/club official, parent and spectator to attend games is a privilege that can be lost by inappropriate conduct.
These rules govern all play. Clubs have the right to retain house rules for their In-House providing such rules are consistent and in accord with PA West Soccer and US Youth Soccer rules. All Districts and Divisions have the right to augment the Rules with the approval of the PA West Soccer Youth Board.
