New header policy for all NRSC players
As part of a concussion litigation settlement agreement with US Youth Soccer and US Club Soccer, new header guidelines have been formulated at the national level and have been pushed down to local levels. On March 28, Ohio Youth Soccer North communicated their policy with the notification that it would go into effect immediately. At the NRSC Board meeting on April 12, the NRSC Board used the guidelines of these larger organizations to create an NRSC header policy. The following NRSC club rules for heading the ball are now in effect (as of April 12, 2016);
All recreation players in age groups U14 and younger are not permitted to intentionally head the ball during practices, games, or any other NRSC activity. Coaches are expected to enforce this rule at all times. In game situations, intentional heading will result in an indirect free kick awarded to the opponent at the spot of the infraction – or from the top of the goal area for infractions inside the goal area.
All travel players in age groups U11 and younger are not permitted to intentionally head the ball during practices, games, or any other NRSC activity. Coaches are expected to enforce this rule at all times. Travel players at the U12, U13, and U14 age levels will receive guidance from their coaches on the header policy for those age groups.
Posted club rules at Heasley have been updated.
