2021 NFHS Soccer Rules Changes

 

 

By NFHS on March 26, 2021

 

4-2-10 NEW: Head coverings worn for religious reasons shall not be made of abrasive or hard materials; and must fit securely.
Rationale: This rule addition will allow student-athletes to express their religious beliefs through the wearing of headwear without the approval from the state.

4-2-11 NEW ARTICLE: In addition to the above permitted uses, state associations (or designee) may on an individual basis permit a player to participate while wearing a head covering for medical or cosmetic reasons if it is required by a licensed physician. A physician’s statement is required before the state association can approve a covering which is not abrasive, hard or dangerous to any other player and which is attached in such a way it is highly unlikely that it will come off during play.

Coaching Requirements for 2021

MANDATORY RULES CLINICS: There will not be a mandatory rules clinic held in soccer this fall. A power point will be provided for all coaches to watch. The process for all coaches to verify that they have viewed the rules clinic is being developed.
*Each coach must complete the NFHS “Concussion in Sport – What You Need to Know” video that is available at the NFHS website (www.:.com).
*Each coach must complete the NFHS “A Guide to Heat Acclimatization and Heat Illness Prevention” video that is available at the NFHS website (www.nfhslearn.com). *Each coach must complete the NFHS “Sudden Cardiac Arrest” video that is available at the NFHS website (www.nfhslearn.com).
*Each coach must complete the NFHS “Sudden Cardiac Arrest” video that is available at the NFHS website (www.nfhslearn.com).
