Jamboree Rules

Jamboree will be held at Moana Sports Complex 240 West Moana Lane Reno this Saturday, October3.

Each team will be allowed to enter the sports complex 10 minutes before your game.  For example 10 AM game can enter the complex at 9:50, 11 AM game at 10:50, etc.

We will blow the horn to start and end each session.  Every 10 minutes the away team (listed as the second team on the schedule) will move to the next field to scrimmage a different team.  Each team will have 4 sessions.

The format is 4V4, no goal keeper.  Your player have to come to the field wearing team uniform, mask, own water bottle, no sharing of water, and soccer ball.  

The field layout will be posted at Moana Soccer Complex.

Parents are not allowed to go the playing field.  You can either sit on the cement sidewalk or outside the fence, mask is required and social distancing will be implemented.

Fall Season Update - Recreational


GBYSL is trying to make this Fall 2020 soccer season meaningful to all. With the ever-changing nature of COVID 19, this season will most likely be a practice only season. Here is how the season will run being in Phase 2:

  • If it runs a practice only season, the cost for each player will be $75.00
  • Practices will be held all season until October 31st
  • Two player development training sessions with a National A license coach (date TBA)
    • This is different than the two coach training sessions
  • Participate in two jamborees
    • September 26 and October 3 at Moana Sports Complex (schedule TBA)
  • Two coach training sessions
    • September 20 and 27 from 9-10 AM at Moana Sports Complex

Once we reach Phase 3 scrimmages/practice games are allowed, minimal physical contact and no limitations on participants per field. Once we reach Phase 4 full return to play is allowed with no restrictions. If we reach Phase 4 before the end of the season, we are going to release the game schedule and still end our season on October 31st.


We are going to schedule each age division a time slot. For example, all U5 teams are from 8 AM to 9 AM.  All 12 teams will come in at 7:45 AM and the coaches will be given their schedule.  Scrimmage for U5 is a total of 10 minutes, shorter than a regular game.  After the first scrimmage, teams will rotate to another field for the second scrimmage. When the time slot is over, the teams have 15 minutes to leave the complex and the next age division will come in.  At the end of the day, we would have gone through all the teams, U4 through U14.  By the second jamboree, the teams will have scrimmaged each other. It will be a FUN DAY. Each player should wear their uniform. The fields are going to be spaced out to allow social distancing.
