Several new and exciting changes are coming to soccer starting in the fall of 2016.  These changes are a direct result of changes that are being mandated at the national level with the United States Soccer Federation and the U.S. Youth Soccer.  These changes affect not just local area soccer, but all soccer clubs in Iowa, and all soccer clubs within the United States.  While the CMB Soccer Club has decided to follow suit with the youth soccer clubs of the United States, not all of the changes are going to be easy changes to accept at first.  The following is a list of changes that will be implemented starting in the fall of 2016 and is dependent upon age-brackets (i.e., not all changes will affect every age group):

 

1)      The Under 10 division will start having the off-sides rule.

2)      The size of the goals will change for the Under 8 division.

3)      The number of participants upon the pitch at one time may increase, depending upon the division.

4)      All players will have adjust to the new United States Soccer Federation and the U.S. Youth Soccer birth-year mandate
