NEW Heading Policy
These will be effective Starting August 15th, 2016 for all UYSA games.
The new policies will prohibit Heading in all U12 (2005 Birth Year) and younger games and practice/training’s (U10 and U9 or 2007 and 2008 Birth Years).
If a player deliberately heads the ball in a game, an indirect free kick (IFK) should be awarded to the opposing team from the spot of the offense. If the deliberate header occurs within the goal area, the indirect free kick should be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the infringement occurred.
Again please note that it is recommended that U9, U10 and U11 (2008, 2007 and 2006 birth years) do not practice heading during training.
If a player is playing up in an older age group (ex: A 2006 player playing with a U12 (2005) team), please note that players who are 10 and younger should not be heading the ball regardless of the age group in which they play. This requires education and support from the coach and parent to instruct the player accordingly.
For U12, U13 and U14 Players (2005, 2004 and 2003 Birth Year currently) heading is allowed in games but it is recommended that it be limited in practice to a maximum of 30 minutes per week with no more than 15-20 headers per player, per week. U.S. Soccer will provide this information in its coaching education courses and will direct coaches to check with their local rules of competition to see if the recommendation has been adopted by the applicable member.
