Our last Poppy Jasper has enjoyed around 19 to 25 Brackets.  Our goal is to try to accommodate as many teams as we can and we will make as many brackets of similar competitive skills as we can.

Check out last year's Brackets

You can see that Girls Under 12 had four brackets (Bronze to Gold) but Girls Under 11 only had one (a Bronze/Copper blend). We will adjust to get the most teams in the fairest bracket!!! Let your peer teams know to sign up too!

Header Rules

HEADING RULES

  • No heading for players 12 years old and younger in games.
  • When a player deliberately heads the ball in a game, an indirect free kick should be awarded to the opposing team from the spot of the offense. However, if a player deliberately heads a ball within their goal area, the indirect free kick by the attacking team should be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the infringement occurred.
  • If a player deliberately heads a ball within their penalty area in 7v7 matches, the indirect free kick by the attacking team should be taken on the penalty area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the infringement occurred.

Crossover Brackets will be used where we can – this offers the best chance for teams to avoid playing teams twice.
