Welcome to PCSSL Referee page. Thank you for volunteering to referee and helping
young players play safer and better soccer. All PCSSL games will be played on Sundays from March 5th 2017 to May 21st, 2017. No playoffs.
* U10 and U12 headings are not allowed
Deliberate heading of the ball is not allowed in the Under-10 and Under-12 divisions. Deliberate heading is not a foul, but it is a violation of permissible playing technique in these divisions. Referees will section deliberate heading by awarding an Indirect Free Kick (IFK) to the opposing team at the place where the player touched the ball with his/her head. If inside the defending team's penalty area, the attacking team's IFK must be taken on the penalty area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the player touched the ball. Heading is allowed in the Under-14 and older divisions.
