What's New 2017

U.S. Soccer Player Development Initiatives

12U Division

Goalkeepers may not drop kick or punt the ball into the air.

10U Division

In an effort to encourage possession football, an extra line known as the "build-out line" has been added to each half of the field. When the goalkeeper is in possession of the ball, both in their hand or for a goal kick, the defending team must retreat behind that line, and the goalkeeper is required to roll or pass the ball to a teammate who is on his/her side (the attacking team's side) of the line. Additionally, goalkeepers may not drop kick or punt the ball.

7U/8U Divisions

When the ball goes out of bounds over the touch line (sideline), players will continue to restart play with a throw-in, but referees will not enforce "correct" throw-in form.

5U/6U Divisions

Games are now 4 v 4 instead of 3 v 3. When the ball goes out of bounds over the touch line (sideline), players will restart play by placing the ball on the ground and kicking it back onto the field.

Safe Haven/Concussion Awareness

AYSO Safe Haven certification is now required every two years. In addition, in accordance with California state law, the CDC Concussion Awareness class is now required for all coaches, referees, and other administrators every two years. If your certification for either of those two is from Membership Year 2014 (8/1/14 to 7/31/15) or earlier, you must retake it. Both courses are available at AYSOU.
