UMSC uses the Retreat Line for all 5v5, 7v7, 9v9 small sided games.
Game officials, please follow the following for the Retreat Line:
When the goalkeeper has the ball at a goal kick or after making a save the opposing team members would "retreat" to the predetermined area of the field. The predetermined areas are as follows:
• 5v5 - Half way line. It is recommended the goalkeeper does not drop kick the ball.
• 7v7 – 1/3rds line.
• 9v9 - 1/3rds line.
UMSC is proud to be the City of Markham's Soccer Experts
