HEADING BAN ADOPTED IN SISL FOR SPRING - SISL will be adopting the heading ban this spring for all its U12 and under teams since we currently have a combined U11/12 division.  We will readdress the age limit in fall if we have separate divisions for U11 and U12. Here is the ban information coming from Illinois Youth Soccer --   Effective immediately, in accord with the recommendations in US Soccer’s Player Safety Campaign the Illinois Youth Soccer has banned heading for players aged 10 and younger for all Illinois Youth Soccer activities including but not limited to Illinois Youth Soccer Member League play, practices and tournaments.  A purposeful header by a player in any bracket for players aged 10 and younger shall result in an indirect free kick awarded to the opponent. 

 

Drone policy at US Youth events - It is the policy of US Youth Soccer to provide an environment for its youth soccer players. Therefore, the use of unmanned aircrafts are not to be at activities of events of US Youth Soccer for youth soccer players. As an organization committed to providing a developmental, healthy, and safe environment, US Youth Soccer recognizes that the safety of its youth players is paramount.

Players registered with the Southern Illinois Soccer League (SISL) are only permitted to participate in three SISL games per week. Tournament games and games in other leagues will not count for purposes of this policy. For purposes of this policy, SISL defines a week as being from Saturday morning through Friday night. Each club, by agreeing to participate in SISL, does hereby agree to monitor and enforce this policy with all players rostered to their club. Violations of this policy will be considered an offense by the club rostering a player in violation and will therefore result in disciplinary action being taken against the club. A club's first violation of this policy will result in a $250 fine and a second violation will result in a $500 fine. Violations under this policy are not counted on a per player basis, but are cumulative to the club for all players rostered to that club

1) Referee Fees: Referee fees are paid according the the age division, not necessarily by the age of the teams. For instance, U-12 teams playing in a U13 division will have to pay the U13 fees ($32 per team). U9 games will only be played with one center ref. Therefore you only have to pay your share of the center refs fees or $12.50 per team.
2) U-12 teams game ball: U-12 teams playing in a U13 bracket will normally be using a size 5 ball. However, if both teams are U12, and both teams agree, they may exercise the option to play with a Size 4 ball. However, the game length and ref fees remain at the U13 level.
3) Normally, it takes 6 teams to make a division, if there are less than 6 teams in an age group, the league will exercise the option to combine it with another age division.. In addition, if there are 12 or more teams in an age division, the league will normally divide that into two divisions based on previous records in an effort to make the games more competitive.
