VERY IMPORTANT - 2016/2017 NEW & MODIFIED RULES
U.S. Soccer Federation announces a ban on heading for players
AGE 10 AND YOUNGER.
PLAYERS IN U11 PROGRAMS AND YOUNGER SHALL NOT ENGAGE IN HEADING, EITHER IN PRACTICES OR IN GAMES
Per U.S. Soccer Referee Program
How the rule should be implemented
“When 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. If a player does not deliberately head the ball, then play should continue.”
CLASSIC LEAGUE RULE BOOK
N. SUBSTITUTIONS (Current Rule)
1. Number of Substitutions and Re-entry
(b) U15-U19 Division I. The Classic League limits the number of substitutions in all Classic League Challenge and League games to seven (7) per half, with no re-entry for field players during the half in which they were substituted. Goalkeepers are allowed one (1) re-entry in each half of play, provided the substitution is within the limit of seven (7) total substitutions for that half; and, the goalkeeper re-enters in the goalkeeper position.
MODIFIED SUBSTITUTION RULE:
U15 - U19 Division I Teams Only
Any player suspected of suffering a head injury may be substituted for evaluation without the substitution counting against the team’s total number of allowed substitutions during the game.
CLASSIC LEAGUE & Calendar Year Registration
How your byes will be handled...
As we are all aware USSFs new Birth Year Registration Age Chart will become effective for the 2016/2017 Soccer Season. Our league must adhere to this new age chart.
Advance your bye up a year.
(Ex. U11 team advances to U13) Your team would be classified by your oldest player. For example, a current 05 roster with 04 players would register as a 04 team and your current 05 players would be playing "up" on that roster.
Small Sided Games and 06 teams:
Incoming 06 teams may only have 06 players rostered to their team at U11. They will also be playing 9v9 for the QT and Fall/Spring Season. No 06 teams may enter the QT as U12s. 06 teams MUST enter the league through the U11 QT, WE WILL BE ACCEPTING 40 TEAMS IN THE LEAGUE FOR THE 2016/2017 SEASON.
Newly formed 05 teams:
We encourage new Incoming 05 teams to register with Calendar Year players (05 Birth year). Newly formed 05 teams will enter through the U12 QT. The current U11 Classic Teams will advance their byes to U13, therefore for the fall of 2016 U12 will play 9v9. WE WILL BE ACCEPTING 30 TEAMS IN THE LEAGUE FOR THE 2016/2017 SEASON
Roster size 06 & 05 teams: (Small Sided)
US Youth Soccer Announcement :

August 1, 1997 - December 31, 1997 will be allowed to play with the
