As most of us have already heard, the International Football Association Board (IFAB) released a new edition of the Laws of the Game that became effective June 1, 2016. The release by IFAB has gotten a lot of exposure in the press and internet but the reality is there are very few changes that will effect AYSO youth matches. That said, as dedicated coach and referee volunteers, we want to familiarize ourselves with the changes before our next practice or game.
AYSO National is conducting a series of webinars to aid training and the fall Upper Division Coach and Referee meetings will address the new edition. If you want to get a jump on that training, take a look at the following link. It has a lot of good information and will be updated as additional questions are asked and answered.
