NTX Soccer Guidelines for Understanding USSF Mandates in 2016
The member organizations of North Texas Soccer have recently approved the rule changes to accommodate the mandates from U.S. Soccer. The changes for the calendar year registration and age groupings are effective beginning in the fall season of 2016. The changes for the small sided games are recommended to begin for the fall season of 2016, and are mandated to begin by the fall season of 2017. The linked presentation below explains the mandates that are being established, and how they will affect North Texas Soccer teams and Associations.
Hopefully, this will help answer the many questions that parents and coaches have had since the announcement of the mandates last fall.
