You are receiving this message as a Coach or Manager of a team playing in the 
CCSL Coast section. That is a team in a Copper, Bronze or Silver division. The 
website used to run this section is at www.CCSLCoast.org Other Sections and 
Regions may have different instructions and are on a different website. 

It has come to my attention that our 8v8 rules are not well documented online. I 
will fix that but it will not be done by tonight. 

Here is a summary of key information for you. Most of it is field related, but 
you should be awareof it. Be sure to consult with your CR and opposing coach to 
ensure all are clear on the rule modifications. 

Also note that Goal Kicks in 8v8 games are per FIFA rules. That is, goal kicks 
are taken from within the Goal Box outline. They are NOT taken from the larger 
Penalty Box.
