Section 1. This rule is mandatory for all US Youth Soccer conducted events, including Regional and National competitions for the National Championship Series, and National Presidents Cup series. This rule is also mandatory for the US Youth Soccer National League, US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues, and the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program.

Section 2. Although not mandatory for US Youth Soccer State Associations, State Associations are strongly encouraged to adopt this Rule for state and local play.

Section 3. All Players age 10 years of age and under shall not head the ball directly from the air in any match or competition, nor shall these players practice heading the ball in any organized team setting. If a player age 10 or younger deliberately heads the ball in a match, the referee shall award an indirect free kick to the opposing team at the spot of the infraction. If the heading occurs within the penalty area, the referee shall move the ball outside the penalty area and award an indirect free kick to the opposing team.

Players age 11 and age 12 shall be permitted to head the ball in any match or competition. These players may practice heading the ball in an organized team practice or skill session, but coaches shall monitor this practice so that no single player heads the ball more than 25 times per week, regardless of setting.

Players age 13 and older shall be permitted to head the ball in any match or competition and these players may practice heading the ball in an organized team practice or skill session.

THIS LINK WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH INFORMATION FROM US SOCCER REGARDING ALL THE SOCCER MANDATES WE ARE REQUIRED TO FOLLOW BEGINNING WITH OUR FALL 2016 SEASON.

REGISTRATION REMINDERS

For registration, an updated policy has been approved regarding the team roster size needed to register a team.  The policy is:

“GBYSL will not register a team to league play unless the team roster has the minimum number of players to field a team according to the team age division.  For example, U10 will play 7v7, U11 and U12 will play 9v9; therefore they must have 7 (U10) and 9 (U11 & U12) players to register the team.  U13 and up teams play 11v11 and must have 11 players to register the team to the game schedule.”

Coaches will need to submit their blackout dates to the game schedule by the date announced by the league game scheduler.  The date will be determined at the bracketing meeting held shortly after the registration deadline.

Each team is required to have at least two certified USSF referees.  The names of their referees are required to be submitted for the game schedule.

Player adds after the game schedule season begins, must be submitted by Tuesday of each week to be returned by Friday.
