A number of changes are being implemented for Grade 2-4 teams beginning in the Fall, 2017 season. These are being mandated by the USSF Player Development Initiative.
- Grade 2 teams are moving from having 5 players on the field (including a goalie) to 4 field players with no goalie. Our clubs will continue to use cones for goals at this level and the size of the field does not change. Rosters will have a maximum of 8 players.
- For Grades 2-4, no drop-kicks or punts will be allowed.
- Grade 2-4 fields will have a “build-out” line half-way between the goal box and center line. The receiving team will need to stay behind this line until the goalie has placed the ball in play.
