NEW RULES AND REGULATIONS: HEADING THE BALL
 

Consistent with the U.S. Soccer mandates on heading the ball:

Heading is banned for all division players U11 (U12 and below for programs without single age divisions) and below in both practices and games.

  • An indirect free kick (IFK) will be awarded to the opposing team if a player deliberately touches the ball with his/her head during a game.
    • The IFK is to be taken from the place where the player touched the ball with his/her head
    • An indirect free kick awarded to the attacking team inside the opposing team's goal area, must be taken on the goal area line at the point nearest to where the player touched the ball with his/her head.
  • Neither Cautions nor Send Offs shall be issued for persistent infringement or denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity related to the heading infraction.
*Per AYSO National Rules & Regulations (ver 5/2016)
