(2016-09-18) US Youth Soccer announces relabeling of age groups and heading restriction recommendations

FRISCO, Texas (Sept. 16, 2016) — The 2016-17 youth soccer season will be a transitional year as leagues, clubs and teams begin to implement the U.S. Soccer mandates. US Youth Soccer would like to outline the relabeling of age group terminology and offer recommendations for implementing the heading restrictions.

US Youth Soccer is in the process of relabeling age groups — moving the word “under” to the opposite side of the numeral to reflect the new player registration by birth year. For example, the Under-10 age group becomes 10-and-Under to clarify that players in the age group can be 10 years old and younger. With this change, the shorthand for labeling age groups will change from U-10 to 10-U.

For those clubs or leagues adopting player registration by year of birth for the 2016-17 soccer year, here is a chart that shows the birth year for that season. Please note that when determining the age group for a season, the year the competition ends should be used. For example, a player born in 2007 would be in the 10-and-Under age group for the 2016-17 soccer year (2017 – 2007 = 10.)

Heading Restriction Implementation Recommendations

The 11-U play group, formerly referred to as U-11, is the group most affected by players age 10 and younger because players turn 11 years old over the range of a year. Therefore, deliberate heading is not allowed in 11-U games.

If a 10-year-old or younger player is playing in an age group older than 11-U (ex: 10-year-old playing with a 12-U team), then that 10-year-old or younger player may not head the ball regardless of the age group in which the he or she participates.

Special note: the overriding principle is that a player age 10 or younger may not head the ball no matter which age group the player plays. This requires education and support from the coach and parent to instruct the player accordingly.

US Youth Soccer suggests that any league that combines 11-U and 12-U for competition should strongly consider not allowing heading in any game in that combined group’s play.

(2016-09-05) NCYSA U12 and under NO HEADING Rules as of 9/01/2016:

NO HEADING is allowed in any small sided match (U12 and younger). In matches for U13 and older, the roster/team could include U12 and younger players. A U12 player on the U13 roster/team, may head the ball. For the player U11 or younger playing on a U13 team or older, if heading occurs by a player U11 and younger, the referee will not stop play and issue an indirect free kick. It would be very difficult for a referee to be able during the run of play to determine if a player that heads the ball is U11 or younger or U12 and older. As stated by the Federation, it will be the coach and parent’s responsibility to “police” a child U11 and younger on heading in a U13 and older match. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lightning and Thunder Protocol
After reviewing information from the National Lightning Safety Institute, NCYSA has adopted the following protocol for lightning safety which will go into effect immediately.  No more counting seconds to determine whether to halt play. The new protocol goes like this:

- If you see lightning, clear the field.

- If you hear thunder, clear the field.

-Play will be halted for a minimum of 30 minutes.

-If no lightning is spotted during the 30minutes and/or no thunder is heard during the 30 minutes, play will resume.

-If lightning is seen and/or thunder is heard during the 30 minute period, the clock starts over.

-No play will resume until a minimum of 30 minutes passes with no thunder and/or no lightning.

The North Carolina Soccer Referee Association is in full support of this new NCYSA protocol. ALL NCSRA referees are being notified of this new protocol and are being instructed to impose the new protocol effective immediately.  Thunder and lightning is extremely unpredictable. The threat is too dangerous and it just isn’t worth taking the chance.
