  • RULE OF THE GAME U11 and younger: When a player deliberately heads the ball in a game, an indirect free kick (IFK) should be awarded to the opposing team from the spot of the offense. If the deliberate header occurs within the goal area, the indirect free kick should be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the infringement occurred. If a player does not deliberately head the ball, then the play should continue.

    • A 10-year-old playing at Under-12 should not head the ball at all.

    • A 11- or 12-year-old playing at Under-14 should abide by the heading restrictions in practice

  • Referees will 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.
