US Soccer Mandated Change Eliminates Heading for 11 and younger 

In order to implement this mandate the SSSL is implementing the following change for all u12 and younger games starting this spring: 

"It shall be considered a dangerous play when a player deliberately heads or attempts to head the ball.  Any violation of this rule shall result in an indirect free kick for the opponent.  Simultaneous violations by both teams will result in a dropped ball."

Always check the 
Fields page before your game 

With the late start to real spring weather the status of the playing fields can change at a moments notice.  Field closings will always appear at least two hours before a game.  Please check the "Fields page" for the latest information on field closures and directions.  On that page be sure to click the expand icon to see the status of each specific field within a town.

Pre-game check-in procedures

Check in for the Quarter-finals will be done by the referees at the field.  Players must be in their official uniform and have their player pass/ID card in order to play.  Coaches must have their laminated roster and 3 paper copies for these games.

For the semi-finals and finals team check-in are done at the registration tent.  When your team checks in the players must be dressed in their full uniform.  All jewelry should be removed, and the players should be lined up in alphabetical order.  

The uniform numbers MUST match the numbers on the laminated and paper rosters for the playoff games.  If there are any differences, you must get your roster corrected and submitted to the SSSL registrar by May 24.
