7/17/12 – Uniform Rules for 2012

July 17, 2012 Soccer Blog Updates

I have had several Coaches contact me in regards to an email that was sent to them from a “Soccer” retail store. After reading the email that was forwarded to me, I can understand their questions and concerns. The author of the email has listed rule changes that go into affect this year and a major change that will go into affect next year, as changes for this year. I will be covering these once again in the Rules clinic this fall, but to help clear up the confusion, let me simply say that : 

Rule 4-1  EQUIPMENT CHANGES – It is now required that the NOCSAE seal and height range shall be permanently marked on the front of the shinguard. Goalkeepers are now required to have numbers on the back of their jersey and on the front of their jersey or pants/shorts. Beginning with the 2013 fall season, the home team shall wear solid white jerseys and solid white socks, and the visiting team shall wear dark jerseys and socks. Please feel free to call me if you need further clarification.
