2018 RULES

HEADING THE BALL 
-Heading is banned for all division players 12U and below and below in both practices and matches. 

-Heading for players in 14U is limited to a maximum of thirty (30) minutes per week with no more than 15-20 headers, per player. There is no restriction on heading in matches.

An indirect free kick will be awarded to the opposing team if a player in division 12U or younger, deliberately touches the ball with his/her head during a match.
-The indirect free kick is to be taken from the place where the player touched the ball with his/her head.

-An indirect free kick awarded to the attacking team inside the opposing team’s goal area, must be taken on the goal area line at the point nearest to where the player touched the ball with his/her head. 

Neither cautions nor send-offs shall be issued for persistent infringement or denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity related to the heading infractions. 

THROW-INS
For 5U/6U, the throw-in is replaced with the pass-in. Opposing players must be at least two yards from the ball until it is kicked.
Training of throw-in technique may begin at 7U and up.

GOALKEEPER PUNTS
For 10U the goalkeeper shall not punt the ball.

 -An indirect kick will be awarded to the opposing team at the spot of the offense if a goalkeeper for 10U deliberately punts the ball during a match.

- An indirect free kick awarded to the attacking team inside the opposing team’s goal area must be taken on the goal area line at the point nearest to where the goalkeeper punted the ball.

BUILD-OUT LINE (10U) 
The build-out line shall be placed across the field equidistant between the top of the penalty area and the halfway line.

-The opposing team must move behind the build-out line for a goal kick or when the goalkeeper has possession. At any time, the goalkeeper may pass, throw or roll the ball to a teammate who is behind the build-out line.

-The goalkeeper or the player taking the goal kick does not have to wait for the opposing players to move behind the build-out line. The play from the goalkeeper or from the goal kick must be played to a teammate behind the build-out line. After the ball is put into play, the opposing team can then cross the build-out line and play may resume as normal. The first touch is from the goal kick or the pass from the goalkeeper.

-The build-out line shall be used as the line to determine offside. Players cannot be penalized for an offside offense between the halfway line and the build-out line
