The Build Line - 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Grade
* The build outline is part of US Soccer effort to help players in small sided game environments learn how initiate the game from a a goal kick or when the goalkeeper has the ball in his/her hands after a save. 
* The defending team (team without the ball) must return behind the build out line so the attacking team can put the ball into play.
* With the new law change, the attacking team is allowed to stand inside the penalty box to receive the pass.
* The game is "Live" as soon as the goal kick is taken; or as soon as the goal keeper passes the ball (foot or hand).
