Arkansas State Soccer Members:
The United States Soccer Federation (USSF) just released an updated version of its Player Development Initiatives. This version offers additional details of the changes to be implemented this seasonal year: 2016/17.
I have highlighted the main changes on our website but please take a few minutes to read the document.
Arkansas State Soccer will implement the USSF guidelines this year and we encourage every club to do the same with their in-house programs.
Please share the document with your referees. New referees will be trained using the new guidelines.
There are several changes that affect how players are coached; build-out lines for U9/U10, and no heading at U11 and below. Please don’t hestiate to contact our Director of Coaching, Jennifer Pfeiffer, at email@example.com or 501-833-0550 x2 if you have any questions regarding implementing these changes.
The document is located on our website: http://www.arkansassoccer.org/bylaws__rules/
We look forward to working with you this year,
Arkansas State Soccer
