U.S Soccer Federation’s Safety Campaign

ICYSL has adopted the US Soccer Federation Safety Campaign beginning March 3rd 2016.

The policy is described below for both Matches and Practices for team’s U12 & U10.

 

 

Games:

When a player deliberately strikes the ball using the head in a game, an indirect free kick (IFK) will be awarded to the opposing team from the spot of the offense for a Dangerous Play.

 

If a defending player deliberately strikes the ball with the head in the defending team’s own goal area an indirect free kick will be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the infringement occurred.

 

If an attacking player deliberately strikes the ball with the head in the opponents goal area an indirect free kick will be awarded and may be taken from anywhere inside the goal area.

If contact with the head is not deliberate there is no violation and play should continue.

 

 

Practices/ Training/ Scrimmages:

The use of the head to strike the ball for these age groups is prohibited.

Changing the game in youth sports

O'Sullivan remembers when youth sports was about children competing with other children instead of adults competing with each other through their kids. Following nearly three decades as a soccer player and coach, O'Sullivan began working to reshape youth sports and inspire a major shift in culture. After serving as a youth coach for the Portland Timbers in Bend, he founded the Changing the Game Project and is now an international speaker and national best-selling author of Changing the Game: The Parents Guide to Raising Happy, High-Performing Athletes and Giving Youth Sports back to Our Kids. His writing has also been featured in the Huffington Post, Soccer America Magazine and The Soccer Wire.


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
