Soccer Entry Lightweight aims to provide an entry-level rule set 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.

This competition is not offered at the International tournament (eg. Eindhoven 2024). Entry-level competitions are provided as rule-sets only.

Soccer Entry Lightweight 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.
