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."

Field status rule of thumb

ALL Coaches should CALL the opposing coach as the updating of field closings on the website may lag the actual status.
