Equipment & Grounds

Field Layout:
  • Here's an aerial view of college corner with the field locations marked to show how they fit into our spaces: UCYS Field Layout. Turn on the satellite backdrop and zoom in to get your bearings before marking out each field.
  • For field dimensions, we use the US Youth Soccer recommendations. (See attachments.) Their recommendations don't include scaling down the other areas within the field, so here's what we use specifically:
    • U10:
      • Overall, 120 X 156 feet.
      • Center circle, 18 foot radius
      • Goalposts 6 feet on each side of center line.
      • Goal area 21 feet on each side of center, and 15 feet into field.
      • Penalty area 42 feet on each side of center, and 30 feet into field. 
      • Penalty Spot 30 feet from goal, arc 18 foot radius. (Not scaled down for safety)
      • While laying out the field: 
        • On touch (side) lines, make marks at 2, 83.5, and 163 feet.
        • On goal lines, mark 2, 18, 39, 54, 60, 66, 81, 102 and 118 feet.
        • Diagonals should come out to roughly 204 feet.
    • U12:
      • We don't have room for a full U12 field, so the dimensions are 88% of recommended size.
      • Overall, 132 X 211 feet.
      • Center Circle, 20 foot radius.
      • Goalposts 9 feet on each side of center.
      • Penalty Spot 30 feet from goal, arc 20 foot radius. (Not scaled down for safety)
