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."

SSSL Referee Evaluation Form

Please Use Our New Referee Evaluation Form

We have created a new form available on this page. We would love to receive your feedback on the referee for your game. The feedback will not be shared specifically with the referee, but will allow us to give general guidance to all referees on themes that are reported to us throughout the season.
