This page is for feedback and comments from our members. Posted below are proposals and drafts on which NMYSA is soliciting your input and also items which are in the 30-day comment period prior to becoming effective after initial passage by the Board. Please e-mail your comments and suggestions to the State Office or to the specific person listed next to a particular issue as responsible for collating input for that item.

160215:  USSF has issued mandates concerning birth year registration and small-sided soccer. In addition, as part of a class-action lawsuit settlement, USSF has recommended no heading in games or practice for players 10 and under and limited heading in practice for players between the ages of 11-13.  This matrix outlines the USSF mandates on small-sided soccer / birth year registration and the concussion recommendations which will be made a part of NMYSA’s General Policies and Rules. USSF has also issued a modified rule for implementation concerning the elimination of heading for ages 10 and under.

Please provide any specific comments on posted discussion items to the State Office for consideration. Revisions are put to a vote at a future Board meeting or to an electronic vote after a 30-day discussion period has elapsed.
