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."
