What it takes to play like a champion both on and off the field

Approved Rule Changes related to US Soccer Mandates
Rule Change A: WMYSA will implement the offside rule for
U9-U10 divisions beginning in Fall 2016. It will not increase the number of
required referees as it views this as a transition period. Furthermore, WMYSA
will reach out to the referee associations to explain our position.
Rule Change B: Effective immediately, purposeful heading
will no longer be allowed at the U11 or younger age group levels. This rule is
to protect players 10 years old and younger regardless of what age group are
playing in. A purposeful heading will
result in an indirect free kick for opposing team.
Rule Change C: Beginning Fall of 2016, WMYSA will do away
with trapped players and now offer a U14/U15 combined age division for both
Fall and Spring and we will continue to offer U15/U16 division seasonally. U15
players have a choice of which team they want to play on for each season.
Rule Change D: Beginning Fall 2016, WMYSA will strictly go
by the age of the player rather than school grade. For example, U15 Freshman
who don’t have or make a high school team would now be able to play in the
combined U14/U15 Division.
Rule Verification E: WMYSA will not extend the age division
to include U20. It will remain an Academy & U9-U19 age ranges.
Rule Verification F: WMYSA will not allow U7 players to play
in U9 division
Rule Verification G: For safety reasons, WMYSA will continue
to enforce the maximum two year play-up until age 15.
Rule Change H: WMYSA, for 2016-2017 season will waive the
$25 transfer fee for U15 players who play in their off season on a U15 Team
playing in U14/U15 division and wants to transfer to the older team playing in
the combined U15/U16 division.
