Rule 3-3-2b(1)
Limitations on coaching during injury situations were removed.
Whether a short injury stoppage or a prolonged stoppage,
coaches from both teams may coach — give tactical and
technical instructions, lend emotional support, etc.
Goalkeeper Injury
Rule 3-3-2b(2)
There is much misunderstanding about what actions
constitute a keeper having to leave the game. A player
“attended to on the field or who is deemed injured by the
referee shall leave the field and may be replaced.”
If the referee stops play for the trainer to attend to an
injured goalkeeper, the player may remain in the game.
False – Correct Answer
Rule 3-3-2 and 3-4-1b
Prior to entering the game after a goal is scored or when a
player is injured and removed, players are required to check
in with the scorer/timer – or referee if there is no
scorer/timer. After checking in, the player must wait until he
or she is beckoned onto the field by the referee.
Required Equipment
Rule 4-1-1c
The home team shall wear solid white jerseys and solid
white socks, with shorts of any color. If tape or similar
material is applied on any sock, it must be similar in color
to the socks to which it is applied. Ankle braces do NOT
have to be the same color as the socks.
Rule 12-8-1e
While use of electronic communication devices with on-field
players during play is still prohibited, the use of electronic
devices on the sideline is allowed.
Rule 12-8-1f(14) (new)
If a player commits handling or a contact foul while
attempting to deny an obvious goal-scoring opportunity and
the goal is scored, that player will be issued a yellow card. If
the foul is considered serious foul play or the goal is not
scored, however, the player will still be issued a red card.
A defender on the goal line sticks her hand out and attempts to
prevent the ball from entering the goal but the ball crosses the
line for a goal. The player should be cautioned not disqualified.
True – Correct Answer
Definitions of Playing Terms
Rule 18-1-1n
Simply tapping the top of the ball with the foot or stepping on
the ball is not “putting it in play.” The ball is in play when it
has been kicked and moves.
On a corner kick, just touching the top of the ball without any
visible ball movement is not a legal restart.
True – Correct Answer
Rule 12-8-2c
When a player receives a second caution in the same game,
he/she will be disqualified with a red card and the team will
play the remainder of the game without replacing the
disqualified player (play shorthanded).
Rule 12-8-2c, 5-3-1g
For a subsequent yellow card to the same player in the
same game, first show the yellow card and then show the
red card.
If the attacking team encroaches on a penalty kick and the ball is
saved and held by the goalkeeper, the referee should blow the
whistle and restart play with an indirect free kick.
False – Correct Answer
Penalty Kick
Rule 14-1-4
The rule reads: “Once the kicker starts his/her approach
toward the ball, he/she may not interrupt his/her movement.”
A stutter step is not permitted, and the action must be
continuous forward motion throughout the approach.
A player taking a penalty kick may stutter step as he
approaches the ball.
False – Correct Answer
The clock is stopped for penalty kicks, cautions,
disqualifications, and when a goal is scored.
True – Correct Answer
An attacking player is injured and must be removed from the
game prior to his team taking a penalty kick. His replacement
may take the PK.
False – Correct Answer
A player on the bench when the game ends may
participate in kicks from the mark.

Major Editorial Changes
Each team shall submit a team roster, containing the first and
last names and numbers of all players, and substitutes, all
bench personnel and all coaches, to the officials at least five
minutes prior to the start of the contest. The game shall not
begin until this is complete. Players, substitutes, numbers,
bench personnel and coaches may be added to the roster
after the start of play. Goalkeepers may have two numbers
listed on the roster, a goalkeeper’s number and a field
player’s number.
A team that elects or is required to play shorthanded for
reasons other than misconduct may have the player(s) reenter the game during a dead ball.
NFHS Soccer
Major Editorial Changes
A team which starts a game with fewer than 11 players, but at
least seven players, may have its additional player(s) enter
the game during a dead ball provided that the names of the
additional players are on the team roster (3-1-3).
Situation B
Goalkeeper A fouls Opponent B in the penalty area resulting
in a penalty kick for Team B. Goalkeeper A is disqualified for
committing serious foul play. Team A is permitted to substitute
a goalkeeper from the bench but must have a field player
leave the field. RULING: Team A must play short due to the
disqualification (12-8-2) but must have a goalkeeper (3-1-1).

Major Editorial Changes
Situation A
Substitute A12 reports to the scorer as the kickoff takes place.
Eight minutes elapse before the first opportunity for a
substitution occurs. The referee beckons A12 on the field;
however, A12 is withdrawn by the coach of Team A. RULING:
Substitute A12 is now a player because he/she was beckoned
onto the field by the referee; therefore, player A12 must enter
the game once beckoned.
NFHS Soccer
Major Editorial Changes
Inquire of each head coach whether each of his/her players
will be properly and legally equipped at the kickoff. Any
questions regarding legality of a player’s equipment shall be
determined by the head referee, or the center referee in a
game officiated using the double-dual system of officiating.

Major Editorial Changes
Situation A
During a shot on goal, B2, in the penalty area, reaches out
and deflects the ball. Just as B2 deflects the ball with the
hands, A2 kicks the free ball and (a) it goes into the goal; (b)
does not go into the goal. RULING: In (a), award a goal and
caution B2 for unsporting conduct; in (b) call handling, award
a penalty kick, and disqualify B2 for serious foul play. (12-8-1f13, 14), (12-8-2-d1), (14-1-1)

NFHS Soccer
Major Editorial Changes
The goalkeeper in possession of the ball shall not be
interfered with or impeded in any manner by an opponent.
This includes the act of bouncing the ball or dropping the ball
for a kick or attempting to throw the ball or tossing the ball in
the air to recatch. When goalkeepers put the ball on the
ground, they relinquish their privileges as goalkeepers.
An attacking player takes a shot on goal which (a) goes
directly at the goalkeeper, who is able to deflect it to the
ground so he can dribble it with the feet to the edge of the
penalty area and then pick the ball up with his hands to
distribute; or (b) the goalkeeper must dive in order to reach
the ball, deflect it away from the goal, then scramble to pick it
up with his hands to distribute. RULING: In (a) Illegal.
Goalkeeper is penalized for infringing when he/she picks up
the ball with the hands after parrying; in (b) legal. The
deflection is not considered a parry.
NFHS Soccer
Major Editorial Changes
On a throw-in, player A throws the ball (a) directly to his/her
own goalkeeper A within the penalty area who touches the
ball with the hands; (b) to a teammate who heads the ball to
his/her own goalkeeper within the penalty area who picks the
ball up with the hands; (c) the ball is thrown to his/her own
goalkeeper outside the penalty area by a teammate. The
goalkeeper traps the ball with the feet and dribbles it into the
penalty area where it is picked up. RULING: In (a), an indirect
free kick is awarded to the opponent; in (b), there has been
no violation; in (c) illegal. Award an indirect kick to opponent
at spot of touching.
NFHS Soccer
Major Editorial Changes
Situation B
Player A2 dribbles along the goal line into the penalty area.
The goalkeeper comes out of the goal mouth to challenge A2.
A2 pushes the ball by the goalkeeper and steps off the field to
go around the goalkeeper. The goalkeeper then steps off the
field and violently contacts A2 to prevent A2 from completing
the play. RULING: The referee must stop play, disqualify the
goalkeeper for exhibiting violent conduct and restart play with
an indirect free kick from the location of the ball at the
stoppage or the goal area line as appropriate.
13-2-4 (new)
If a direct or indirect free kick taken from outside a team’s
penalty area goes untouched into a team’s own goal, a
corner kick shall be awarded to the opposing team.

Major Editorial Changes
DEAD BALL – A term used to indicate a time when the ball is
out-of-play. A goal can never be scored while the ball is dead.
A restart can never be changed due to what occurs during a
dead ball.
Rules Comparison The 2013-14 rules book will contain an updated comparison
of the major differences among NFHS and NCAA rules and
FIFA laws.
 All coaches on the roster must stay in the Team Area…not in the bleachers or
press box communicating with the sidelines
(ref rule 1.5.3 page 15)
 It is the Lead Referee or Center Referee’s responsibility to insure that a
misconduct report is submitted for all send-offs and all necessary incident
reports such as Concussions, Injuries, Uniform Issues, Field Discrepancies and
Miscellaneous items you feel need to be reported
 If an Assistant Coach is misbehaving you should Caution the Head Coach if
necessary to control behavior-The Head Coach is responsible for the actions of
his bench personnel
 Remember: NFHS Rules are written for Varsity Level competition so we has
some flexibility when dealing with Uniforms (and other issues) at the JV and
Frosh levels
 Home team Jerseys and Socks must be SOLID
WHITE (Play the game but report uniform
 Visiting team Jerseys shall be dark in color
and socks must have a single dominant color
but do not have to match their Jersey color
 If tape is applied over the socks it must be of
similar color as that part of the sock to which
it is applied
 If an ankle brace is worn over the sock it does
NOT have to be the same color as the socks

yellow card followed by a red card.
True – Correct Answer
RULES GUIDELINES to be followed by
SCSOA 2013-14
These guidelines/interpretations supersede the NFHS Rule Book.
Rule 3 - Substitutions shall be conducted in the following manner. Players leaving
the field must leave on their team's side anywhere along their touchline. If both
teams are on the same side of the field, the players must exit nearest their bench.
Substitutes must enter at mid-field, where the halfway line intersects the touchline
and may not enter until the player they are replacing has left the field of play and
has been directed to enter by the referee or assistant referee.
Reason: Preventative mechanics and better control. If players exit the field on
their own side or near their bench, there is less chance for confrontation with
opposing teams, substitutes or spectators. Also, the referee has better control of
players and less time is lost through substitution. In addition, scorekeepers are
rarely used by the schools.
For clarification, if a team starts with less than 11 players and a player or players
arrive late, can they enter the game? NFHS rules will allow them to enter at the
next stoppage in play provided their name is on the roster or is added to the roster,
and they are properly checked for legal equipment.
Rule 4 - Section 4-2-2 refers to hair control devices being legal if made
of soft material and not for adornment. SCSOA policy is that head
scarves or bandanas will not be allowed under any circumstances.
Reason: SCSOA feels these are not a necessity and fall under the adornment category as well as having
potentially dangerous knots. Also, this will prevent gang colors from being displayed, which could lead to
other problems.
SCSOA will make an exception to permit headdress which is worn due to the individual's religious beliefs
(e.g., burqa, hijab); however, such headdress is permitted only if the referee feels the item does not provide
a safety concern for the player or an opponent (the referee is the sole authority in making such a decision).
Rule 5 - 5-1-3 (a) deals with referee shirt color conflicting with the teams, where the referee must change
to non-conflicting colors. SCSOA has adopted the standard colors approved by USSF for our referees. It is
mandatory that the referees dress alike in a shirt that isn't in conflict with either team. Referees must
carry alternate colors with them. If the goalkeeper is in conflict with teammates or opponents, the
goalkeeper will change uniform. (Note: Recent rule change does permit referees and goalkeepers to have
like color shirts.)
SCSOA policy is that only 3-striped cuff socks will be permitted. SCSOA policy is that sunglasses will not be
allowed to be worn by referees. The only exception is prescription glasses. No sunglasses allow for better
game control through eye contact (both with players and referees).
SCSOA policy is that referees will not wear jewelry (e.g., earrings, necklaces) as is the case for players
on the field.
Rule 9 - SCSOA will adhere to a 'common sense' rule in the case
of football goal posts having crossbars and uprights that extend
over the soccer goal and into the field of play. If a ball in play
should hit the football goal posts, a goal kick or a corner kick will
be awarded depending on which team last touched the ball. Do
not award a drop ball for 'unusual circumstances.' You would be
dropping the ball on the 6-yard line. Make sure your assistant
referees as well as the coaches and the captains are aware of
this interpretation prior to the game beginning.
Rule 9 - If the ball is caused to go out of bounds by two opponents simultaneously, the referee
should make a decision as to which team to award the throw-in (use common sense).
Reason: SCSOA feels the referee will maintain better credibility if he makes a decision on a
throw-in rather than show indecision by giving a drop ball, as indicated in the NFHS rule
Rule 13 - If the referee fails to give the correct signal for an indirect free kick, the kick must be
retaken, regardless of the original outcome. This also applies to an incorrect signal for a direct
free kick.
Reason: Players will obviously respond in a different manner based on the visible signal which
is given. (for example, a GK will try to touch the ball before it goes into the goal if he/she
doesn't see an IFK signal; or a GK might purposely let the ball go in to the goal untouched if
sees an IFK signal - if either of these signals were incorrectly given then a fair result has not
taken place).
This is the same policy as adhered to under USSF rules (Advice to Referees 13.9) but note that
under NISOA college rules, the referee is directed to continue play in these circumstances
even if an incorrect signal is given.
Rule 14 - The goalkeeper shall stand on the goal line - FACING THE BALL AND THE KICKER - between
the goal posts, until the ball is kicked. The rule does not specifically state this as Advice to Referees
does. Standing with his/her back to the kicker would be considered an expression of unsportsmanlike
behavior and the GK should be cautioned. Page 91 Reference to READY FOR PLAY chart: When a
restart is required. Change to the following:
Page 91 Reference to READY FOR PLAY chart: When a restart is required. Change to the
No whistle needed on a Drop Ball.
Kickoff – Trail, Goal Kick – Trail, Corner Kick – Trail
Penalty Kick – Trail,
Free Kick – Trail,
Throw-in - Official responsible for ruling on the legality of the throw
Add to Chart: Trail referee starts play after caution, disqualification, injury, and encroachment
(except in the case of a throw-in where the lead official is responsible for ruling on the legality of
the throw-in)
Reason: No whistle on a drop ball because the referee that initiates play has the ball in hand and
doesn't need to blow the whistle to start play. The Trail referee initiating play on a drop ball may
cause a problem if the referee dropping the ball is not ready for the restart. On a penalty kick or
free kick, the Trail referee should be at the place of the kick. He is in a better position to control the
restart since he will have to deal with encroachment or delaying kicks.
NFHS Official Soccer Signals - Goal –
SCSOA strongly encourages the referee to blow his/her
whistle when a goal is scored.
Reason: Such a signal ensures that play is stopped and
that there is no confusion as to whether or not the goal
was scored. In addition, this is one of the required times
that the clock is to be stopped under NHFS rules, and the
whistle will always immediately precede the required hand
Per CIF guidelines (CIFSS and State), any player, who is suspected of
sustaining a concussion or head injury and is removed from the
game, shall not return to play on that same date of competition.
The player may only return to play in following days if he/she has
received written clearance from a licensed health-care professional.
In any NFHS rule book reference to a "health-care professional", we
will abide by the CIF State definition of such an individual: "medical
doctor (MD) or doctor of osteopathy (DO)”.
LA CITY RULES or CIFSS RULES - For games which include a LA
City team against a CIFSS team, the rules which the home team
follows will be those under which the game will be played.
However, if both coaches agree to abide by one team's set of rules,
then the referee should also follow those rules. The bottom line use common sense and just make sure that everyone is in
agreement BEFORE the game begins.
c. when a player is injured or removed from the field.
1. A coach or appropriate health-care professional may not enter the
field without approval from a referee. During the time a coach or
appropriate health-care professional is permitted on the field by the
referee to attend to an injured player, coaching instruction shall not be
given to any player on either team.
Rationale: The application of this rule is not always practical.
Enforcement of the current rule can create issues for game
management. In situations of a prolonged injury, i.e. emergency
medical help must be summoned; coaches presently are prohibited
from conferring with their teams.
3-3-2 (new) and 3-4-1b 3-3-2 (new)
ART. 2… Time for Substitutions: either team may substitute an unlimited number of players from the
bench, provided they report per 3-4-1(a).
b. a. When a goal is scored;
c. b. When a player is injured and removed from the field.
ART. 1 . . . To request a substitution, a substitute who desires to enter the game shall report to
the scorer, giving his/her jersey number and the number of the player being replaced.
a. The substitute shall remain at the scorer's table until a referee beckons the substitute onto
the field of play. When there is no separate scorer/timer, incoming substitutes shall report
directly to the nearest official from the official area.
b. A substitute may enter the field of play after a score, when a player is injured and removed
from the field or at the beginning of a period without being beckoned by the referee. After a
score and when a player is injured and removed from the field, substitutes must be beckoned.
Rationale: To simplify and organize the substitution rules and create uniformity among
coaches, officials and players. In cases when players were allowed to enter the field freely, they
are now to be beckoned by the official.
4-1-1c c. Both socks shall be the same color, with a single dominant color,
but not necessarily the color of the jersey. If tape or similar material is applied
externally to the socks, it must be of similar color as that part of the sock to
which it is applied.
Rationale: An increasing number of players are using excessive amounts
of tape externally on their socks. This can be a multitude of colors and
completely changes the look of the sock. This can cause confusion,
particularly for the referees who may need to look at the sock to
determine who last played the ball before it went out of play.
12-8-1e ART. 1 . . . A player, coach or bench personnel shall be cautioned (yellow
card) for:
a. entering or leaving the field of play (except through the normal course of play)
without the permission of an official;
b. persistent infringement of any of the rules of the game;
c. objecting by word of mouth or action to any decision given by an official
d. any incidental use of vulgar or profane language;
e. any use of video or audio electronic communication devices with the on-field
players or other persons to assist in coaching during play the game or any intervals.
Examples: Amplifying devices, wireless communication devices such as cell
phones, headphones, personal digital assistant, etc.;
NOTE: A coach may engage in verbal communications with his or her own team
during play.
12-8-1f(13) and (14) (new)
13. a player anywhere on the field (other than a goalkeeper within
his/her own penalty area) who deliberately handles a the ball,
attempting to prevent it from going into the a goal, and in which the
goal is scored (12-8-2d(1)).
14. a player commits a foul, attempting to deny an obvious goalscoring opportunity, and the goal is scored.
Rationale: An unsuccessful attempt to deny an opponent an obvious
goal-scoring opportunity by a foul (i.e., a goal is scored anyway) is
punished by a caution (yellow card). Previously, this was a
disqualification (red card).
12-8-2d(1) and (2)
1. a player anywhere on the field (other than a goalkeeper within his/her own
penalty area) who deliberately handles the ball, preventing it from going into the a
2. a foul by a player against an opponent who is moving toward his/her offensive
goal with an obvious opportunity to score a player commits a foul, denying an
obvious goal-scoring opportunity, preventing a goal.
Rationale: This will bring this provision for serious foul play in line with the change
that was made this past year in the misconduct penalties for intentional handling of
a ball headed toward the goal.
Other Rules Affected: 12-8-1f
n. FREE KICK – A method by which a dead ball becomes alive. The ball is placed
on the ground and, while motionless, it is kicked unchallenged in any direction
prior to being touched by another player. The ball is considered to have moved
when it is touched by the kicker's foot in play when it has been kicked and
moves. Simply tapping the top of the ball with the foot or stepping on the ball
are not sufficient. There are two types of free kicks – “direct” from which a goal
may be scored against an opponent without a second player touching the ball
and “indirect” in which a goal may not be scored unless the ball is touched or
played by another player of either team.
Rationale: This will make the rule consistent with the traditions of the sport and
helps to prevent trickery and avoid confusion on restarts. This particularly
applies to corner kick situations where players have been taught simply to touch
the top of the ball or to stand on top of the ball, and then walk away, followed by
a teammate running on to the ball and dribbling it toward the goal. This change
in the rule will make it easier for the referee to make a reasonable judgment as
to whether or not the ball is in play. At the same time, it will make it more
difficult for players to be deceptive with their actions on the field.
Rule 1 – Boundary lines are to be 4 inches wide
Penalty kick mark to be a 2 foot line or 9” spot
Corner flag post must be at least one inch in diameter
Nets are mandatory
Rule 2 ‐
Home team provides 3 balls and at least 2 ball holders
Approved ball must have NFHS logo
The game may be started without nets.
False – Correct Answer
Rule 3 ‐ Substitutions
Both teams between periods, Goal kick, Goal Scored
Play stopped for injury and player attended to on the field
Injured player (including the GK) must leave field and may be replaced
After cautions or disqualifications
On a throw‐in or corner kick (other team can also substitute if team
with possession substitutes)
‐ Unlimited number of substitutions for either team at these substitution opportunities
NOTE: On a penalty kick the only substitute permitted is for injury or caution, and substitute
may not take the penalty kick
‐ Players may be added to the roster after the start of the game
Both teams may substitute on either team’s goal kick or
corner kick.
False – Correct Answer
Rule 4 - Uniforms
Home team – all white jerseys and socks
Visiting team – dark color contrasting with home team uniform
Both socks must be the same color with a single dominating
NOTE: Shorts and socks of the goalkeeper are not required to be
the same color as his/her teammates.
Uniform numbers: on front and back (4” and 6”); number on
front may be on shorts; this rule includes the goalkeeper
CIF Ruling: Goalkeeper may not wear a jersey with advertising
on it (e.g., Corona, Newcastle, or Coca Cola)
Rule 5 ‐ Winner of coin toss can choose which goal to defend
or to take the kickoff
Rule 7 ‐ Clock is stopped at appropriate times; time is not added on
Clock is stopped for penalty kicks, cautions, disqualifications, when
a goal is scored, and all other times the referee orders the clock to
be stopped
Rule 9 ‐ After temporary suspension of play (e.g., for injury,
outside agent, any unusual situation), if one team is clearly in
possession of the ball, the restart will be an IFK to the team with
A player is injured in the penalty area with the goalkeeper in
possession of the ball. The referee stops play. The correct
restart is an indirect free kick for the goal keeper’s team.
True – Correct Answer
Rule 12 ‐ Coaches may receive yellow and red cards
‐ Cautioned player must leave the field and may be replaced
‐ Player red carded during half‐time may be replaced
‐ Coaches receive a yellow card for first equipment violation
‐ Dangerous play against a teammate results in an IFK
Rule 13 ‐ An indirect free kick is awarded to the opposing team
at the spot where the ball was when play is stopped for
misconduct by a person in the team and coaching area (not a
drop ball even if neither team was in possession of the ball)
The referee may issue a yellow or red card to a coach or
any bench personnel.
True – Correct Answer
A player who is disqualified between the first and second
halves cannot be replaced.
False – Correct Answer
Rule 14 ‐ Player taking the PK cannot stutter step or abruptly change
directions as he approaches the ball
‐ When there is an infringement by the attacking team, and the GK
saves the ball, the game plays on; there is no IFK for the defense
Rule 15 ‐ Throw‐in that doesn’t enter the field results in a throw‐in
awarded to other team
Kicks from the Mark – any eligible player can participate (not just those
on the field) ‐ 11th kicker can be a player who has previously taken a kick
(do not have to use all eligible players)
If a throw-in does not enter the field of play, the throw-in is
awarded to the other team at the original spot.
True – Correct Answer
CIF Ruling ‐ Noisemakers are prohibited inside stadiums or
playing fields at any CIF Southern Section contest. This
includes horns, bells, sirens, and any musical instruments
other than those in the band. The improper use of any of the
above listed devices by supporters of a team would subject
that team to possible forfeiture of the contest
