16. Retreat Line (NEW) – AS PER OSA LTPD GUIDELINES (U11/U12)

On goal kicks, the opponents must drop off to the half-way line to help the goalkeeper and players learn to play out from the back.

The ball is in play as soon as it leaves the goal area and is touched by a teammate. The opposition players cannot cross the half-way line until a player touches the ball. To assist players in this the referee will inform players to ‘retreat’. Further, they will inform players when they can cross the retreat line by using the word ‘engage’

When the goalkeeper collects the ball with their hands in open play, the opponents must drop off to the half-way line. The ball is in play as soon as it leaves the goalkeeper’s hands.

If the goalkeeper wants to play quickly they can do so. They do not have to wait for the opposition players to retreat.
