US Soccer Fall Soccer Rule Changes

From US Youth Soccer concerning rules changes for Fall 2016:

Despite the increased popularity of soccer and the success of our national teams, the youth soccer landscape at the entry level needs to be improved.  Our soccer culture at the youth level focuses on winning and results rather than focusing on developing the skills of individual players.

The concept of a team outweighs the importance of players having fun and developing to the best of their abilities.  As a country, we need coaches and parents to spend less time caring about wins and loses, and more time devoted to teaching individual skills.

Part of this initiative is to educate and empower coaches and parents to change the way we look at the sport. The starting point for our new player development initiative is to create small sided standards and institute a birth year registration process.

The rationale for the changes is simple.  We want to develop players with more: individual skill, intelligence, creativity and confidence. Players should be having fun, and feel free to make their own decisions.  These standards were created based on the needs of the players and they also provide for a consistent approach across the country. 

Attached are the Birth Year & Standards Chart that layout the changes to each age group...there are changes in players on the field, when off-sides is implemented, when goalies are used - what age, size of fields & goals, etc.  

PLEASE NOTE... the birth year initiative DOES NOT affect CYSL from the standpoint we will continue to play in GRADE-BASED teams.  HOWEVER, if you have players on your team that are older than the grade, you will need to "Play Up" in any post-season tournaments not run directly by CYSL.
