2020 Skyline Cup Tournament – Cancelled for 2020

The Skyline Cup is a 9U-10U  tournament that would have been held on Saturday, August 15 and Sunday, August 16 at the Kennedy Soccer Complex (9700 E. Hampden Ave, Denver). Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the uncertainties surrounding tournament play the Skyline Cup has been cancelled for 2020.  We look forward to hosting this fun recreational tournament again in 2021!

The tournament usually takes place every August. There is a three game guarantee and this event will be an excellent opportunity for your team to play games in preparation for the upcoming season. The event will be focused on playing matches against teams of similar ability in a fun, exciting, soccer-filled day for all. All the games will be held at Kennedy Soccer Complex, which is located at the intersection of Hampden and Dayton in Southeast Denver.

Updated Rules- Build Out Line

  • When the goalkeeper has the ball, either during play from an opponent (made a save), or taking a goal kick, the opposing team must move behind the build out line until the ball is put into play. The goalkeeper is entitled to wait until opponents are behind the build out line before releasing the ball. When the opponents are behind the build out line, the six second rules for the goalkeeper begins.
  • The ball is considered “in play” when the ball leaves the goalkeeper’s hands.
  • The ball is in play from a goal kick when the ball is kicked and clearly moves.
  • On a goal kick the ball does not need to leave the goal box before another player touches the ball.
  • Goalkeepers in possession of the ball may pass with their feet or throw/roll the ball into play when the opponents have retreated behind the build out line. Once the ball has been released by the goalkeeper, the opposing team can cross the build out line and play resumes as normal.
  • Goalkeepers may NOT punt the ball. Drop kicking the ball is the same as punting. If the goalkeeper punts or drop-kicks the ball, the referee will stop play with the whistle and award an indirect free kick to the opposing team on the penalty area line parallel to the where the infringement occurred.
