VI. Rules of Play

Make sure you understand the rules of the age group you are coaching. Is there offsides? How long is a half? What size ball do we use?

VII. Uniforms

All U5-U12 players need to wear the NCFC required adidas red and navy jerseys. 

U13-U19 Recreational players' uniforms are organized by coaches, so they are not required to purchase these uniforms. Coaches should contact their teams weeks before their first game to make sure everyone has a uniform.
