PK Shoot-Out

Rules and Procedures

  • Teams are formed with a total of 5 players including a goalie. Goalies may be rotated per round but not mid-round.
  • We encourage teams to have fun designing their own t-shirts for the event or even dress up in costumes. Teams are also welcome to wear their club uniforms or practice gear if they desire.
  • Team names can be affiliated with a club/organization or be uniquely created by the team for fun. Example: The Shut Outs, 09 Ball Busters, Goal Diggers, etc
  • All 5 players will take alternating Penalty Kicks. Similar to the World Cup, there is a GROUP STAGE (consisting of at least 3 matches) and a KNOCKOUT STAGE (semi-finals and finals only for teams who advance from the group stage). Each team is guaranteed 3 rounds of competition.
  • Anticipated brackets will be available for both Boys and Girls in the age groups of U7, U8, U9, U10, U12, U14, U16, U18, Open to All, and Coaches. If there are fewer than 4 teams in any group, we will combine them as needed.
  • The schedule is an estimate of time. This tournament will run very fast. Teams should be checked in and ready to go by 5:45pm. Goal attendants will announce who is on deck, but it is the team’s responsibility to be at the correct goal when their match is ready to start. This may be sooner or later than the anticipated schedule.
  • If a team does not take their place to start the match when called upon by the attendant the match will be considered a forefit. The schedule will not wait for teams who are not present and ready. If a registered player is unable to attend another player already registered may kick in his/her place. If substitutions are needed they must be registered on this page and have a signed waiver. Please inform the registration table if this need arises.
  • Awards are given to 1st and 2nd place in each bracket. Awards can be collected after each final match at the Registration/Awards tent.
  • There is no standing behind the goals or past the goal line area for safety reasons.
  • Goals will be managed by one attendant and one licensed referee. There will be zero tolerance for disrespect or dissent toward referees, attendants, teams, and/or players. This is a FUN event and should be enjoyed without stress or extreme competition. Any complaints or issues should be addressed at the Registration table.
  • All matches will follow FIFA Laws of the Game for Penalty Kick Shootouts. For more details, see here. Specifically note and players should be advised:
    • The ball must be on the penalty spot and not moving.

    • The goalkeeper:
      • must face the ball must be on the goal line and between the goalposts
      • can move along the goal line and/or jump up and down, as long as at least part of each foot is on or above the line, until the ball is kicked
      • must not behave in a way that unfairly distracts the kicker, e.g. delay the taking of the kick or touch the goalposts, crossbar or goal net
      • must have at least part of one foot touching, in line with, or behind the goal line when the ball is kicked
      • The other goalkeeper must wait on the junction of the goal line and the penalty area line (on the same side as the assistant referee, if there is one). 
    • The kicker:
      • must be clearly identified
      • can stop and start during their run-up to the ball
      • must not stop or feint (pretend to kick the ball) at the end of their run-up – they must kick it immediately
      • must kick the ball forward (but can backheel it towards the goal)
      • cannot touch the ball
    • Tiebreakers: If the teams are still level after the five kicks, the sudden death phase of the penalty shootout kicks in. In sudden death, if a team scores in one of the rounds but the other one misses, the match ends and the scoring team wins the shootout. The sudden death continues until a winner is determined.
