Soccer Entry Lightweight challenge aims to provide an entry-level ruleset for RoboCup Junior Soccer that is harmonized across regions and that may be used as-is or adapted to specific needs at regional and super-regional tournaments.

Soccer Entry Lightweight challenge games are played with a well-balanced electronic ball. The ball emits infrared (IR) light in so called “pulsed mode”. Note that the same ball is used in the RoboCupJunior Soccer Lightweight as well.
