GALA DAYS

What are the objectives of Gala Days?

The aim is to provide youngest participants of the world game an opportunity to experience ‘club vs club’ football in an environment that promotes participation, fun and fair play without the hassles associated with week-by-week home-and away fixtures.

What is the Gala Day format?

Each club organises its participants into teams of 4-7 players of under 7 age.  Each team plays games against teams in the same age group from the other clubs.  Each game is 2 x 15 minute halves with a short half-time break and a longer break between each game.

Football Federation Australia’s Small-Sided Football formats and rules apply – so a maximum of 4 players per team on the ground at any time with games played on a 20m x 30m pitch.  There are no goalkeepers and rules are kept to a minimum.

Important information to remember:

It is VERY IMPORTANT to register your child’s attendance at each Gala Day.  Your co-ordinator will have this sheet for you to sign your child in on the prior to Gala Day competition.

The number of participants determines the both the number of teams and the fixtures for the day.  A failure to register may result in the child not being assigned to a team.


BASIC RULES

Under 5-7 age group

Start of play & re-start after a goal – Pass forward to a team mate from the middle of the halfway line. All players must be in their own half of the field of play. Opponents must be at least 5m away from the ball until it is in play. The ball must touch a team mate before a goal can be scored.

Ball crossing the touch line – There is no throw in. A player from the opposing team to the player that touched the ball last before crossing the touch line will place the ball on the touch line and pass or dribble the ball into play. Opponents must be at least 5m away from the ball until it is in play. The ball must touch a team mate before a goal can be scored.

Ball crossing the goal line – There is no corner kick. Regardless of which team touched the ball last, a player from the team whose goal line the ball has crossed will place the ball anywhere along the goal line and pass or dribble the ball into play. Opponents must retreat to the half way line and can move once the ball is in play. The ball must touch a team mate before a goal can be scored.

Fouls and misconduct – Indirect free kicks are awarded for all acts of handball or fouls and misconduct. Opponents must be at least 5m away from the ball when the indirect free kick is taken. (An indirect free kick is where a goal can be scored only if the ball subsequently touches another player before it enters the goal).

Why no goalkeepers in the Under 5-7 age group?

The role of the goalkeeper in football is uniquely specialised and typically players develop as goalkeepers at a later age. In the youngest age groups, keepers can be uninvolved in the game for long periods, which can be uninteresting and sometimes means they do not feel part of the team.

Goalkeepers – The goalkeeper is allowed to handle the ball anywhere in the penalty area. To restart play after a save or gathering the ball with their hands, the ball must be thrown or rolled from the hands or played from the ground with their feet, within 6 seconds. The goalkeeper is not allowed to kick or drop kick the ball directly from their hands. Opponents must be at least 5m outside the penalty area and cannot move inside the penalty area until the ball is in play.

Under 8 & 9 – The ball is in play once it moves out of the penalty area.

For deliberate or serious acts of handball or fouls and misconduct in the penalty area, a penalty kick is awarded from an 8m penalty mark with only a goalkeeper in position. All other players must be outside the penalty area and be at least 5m behind the penalty mark.

HEAT POLICY

Please note that all children are required to bring along a drink bottle to training, preferably containing cold water, even on the colder nights. For the warmer months, generally during February-April, if the day's temperature has reached a top of 36 degrees, there will be no training. This is a decision that the Committee has not taken lightly and understand that children would like to train, no matter what the weather may be.
