SoccerMaine updates on player heading

Please see the Soccer Maine website for the most updated information…

Heading will not be permitted for U9, U10 and U11 per the new US Soccer protocol.  For U12, U13 and U14, heading should be limited in training to no more than 30 minutes per week.

During game play for U9, U10 and U11; a headed ball will result in an indirect free kick awarded to the opposing team.

SoccerMaine updates on calendar year and team sizes

Please see the Soccer Maine website for the most updated information…

There has been a lot of discussion about the recent US Soccer mandate for the Calendar Year player eligibility and Soccer Maine has provided their direction for the coming year.

  • For Premier teams only (of which FUSC is not considered), Soccer Maine will move to a January 1-December 31 soccer registration year starting in the seasonal year of 2016-17.
  • For Fall Classic and Spring Pine Tree teams (of which FUSC is primarily), there will be no change for the spring/fall of 2016 as Soccer Maine will keep in-state league and teams on the current school calendar basis.  This is targeted to change starting with the 2017-18 season mandate but there will likely be more updates on this as we get closer.

Playing sizes update

  • In 2016, new best practice mandates will have Soccer Maine introducing a slight change in number of players on the field with a move to 7v7 for U9 and U10, and 9v9 for U11 and U12.  This adds one extra field player for all of our U9-U12 teams starting with the Spring 2016 season.
