Major Changes to be prepared for this year:

- Birth year registration: teams will now be registered by birth year, not school year. If you have questions on how your team will be registered contact your club

- Play format: the number of players on the field and playing time has been adjusted, along with field sizes. Check out the informational chart with all the changes here Nebraska Birth Year/Play Format Chart

- Heading Restrictions: Players aged U11 and below are not allowed to head the ball. Intentional heading will result in an indirect free kick awarded to the opposing team. Read more about US Soccer's Concussion Initiative
