If the score is tied at the end of regulation or overtime, the match will proceed to kicks from the mark. For the Mt. Diablo World Cup, there are some modifications to the FIFA procedure of which you must be aware:
1. Coaches may choose the 1st 5 kickers from their entire roster, not just the players who were on the field at the time regulation play (or overtime, if applicable) ended. Hence, substitutes are eligible to be selected. There are two caveats to this modification. The 1st is that a player must have played in the match to be eligible (thus, a kid with a cast who didn’t play in the game cannot participate and take a kick even if he or she is on the roster). The 2nd is that a kid who was sent off during the match due to the receipt of a red card cannot be selected to take a kick.
2. A kicker may only take a 2nd kick after every eligible player on the roster (including the goal keeper) has taken a kick.
3. A player who was removed from the match due to injury or a player who is injured during the kicks from the mark cannot be forced to take a kick if he or she is too injured
to do so. However, once that player has declared that he or she is too hurt to take a kick, he or she cannot change his or her mind and decide to take a kick during a subsequent
3. One coach from each team may remain in the center circle with the designated kickers. The other coach and the remaining players must stay on the sideline.
4. A player who refuses to take a kick (due to fear, nerves, etc.) will have been deemed to have taken and missed a kick. A coach should, however, be given a reasonable time
(not to exceed 2 minutes) to try and convince such a player to take the kick. The referee should actually time this 2 minute period and inform the coach when the period has
begun. If the player has not taken the kick within the 2 minute period, then the kick is deemed taken and missed.
5. A coach may substitute for the keeper at any time during the kicks from the mark. However, once a keeper has been changed, he or she may not be substituted back as keeper unless the initial substitution was forced by injury or blood. In such cases, the referee has the sole discretion to allow the 2nd change.
