CONCUSSION INITIATIVES & HEADING FOR YOUTH PLAYERS

US Club Soccer is clarifying the following implementation guidelines for U.S. Soccer’s Recognize to Recover Player Safety Campaign, specifically as it relates to concussion initiatives and heading for youth players:

  • The Federation is recommending, and US Club Soccer is requiring immediately, new rules as it relates to heading, as follows:
  • Players in U-11 programs and younger shall not engage in heading, either in practices or in games.
  • Limited heading in practice for players in U-12 and U-13 programs. More specifically, these players shall be limited to a maximum of 30 minutes of heading training per week, with no more than 15-20 headers per player, per week.
  • Clubs should be aware of circumstances in which individual consideration is needed. For example:
    • A 10 year old playing at U-12 or older should not head the ball at all.
    • An 11 or 12 year old playing at U-14 or older should abide by the heading restrictions in practice.
  • Referees should enforce these restrictions by age group according to the specified rules. Referees will not be assessing the age of individual players on the field; they will enforce the rules for the age group.
  • Leagues and organizations are free to set their own standards, as long as the minimum requirements outlined above are met.
