AYSO Announces New Heading Rules

Torrance, Calif. (Feb. 16, 2016)—The American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) announced today that its National Board of Directors has passed a change to AYSO’s rules and regulations related to heading in accordance with the U.S. Soccer Federation’s (USSF) Return 2 Recover program.  “The safety of the kids who play this beautiful game is our biggest priority and being able to take that and align it with USSF made this an even easier decision,” said Mark Stewart, AYSO National President.

Safety is very important to AYSO as a whole.  Heading was already banned for U-10 and below and extending it to U-12 was a way to ensure that players are older and more developed when attempting heading to avoid preventable head injuries.
