    2013 Reminders Memo to Schools

  • 8/8/2013

    The NFHS records its annual Soccer Online Interpreters Meeting and has made that recording available to state associations.  The recorded webinar may be accessed here:

    Listed below are clarifications to the recording.

    Slide 24 – Substitutions – Rule 3-3-2b(1) – Although the limitations on coaching during an injury have been removed the following rules concerning this coaching do apply: 

    1.      Players cannot leave the field unless they have been substituted for or are injured.

    2.      A coach who is not called onto the field cannot go on to the field until called on by the referee.

    3.      Substitutes cannot leave the team area unless they are going into the game.

    4.      A coach who is called onto the field may coach other players while on the field.

    Slides 28-29 – Fouls to deny an obvious goal scoring opportunity – Rules 12-8-1f(14) and 12-8-2d(2) – The slides indicate that this must be a contact foul.  However, this is not the case as is indicated in these rules on pages 57 and 58.  Any foul (contact or non-contact) to deny an obvious goal scoring opportunity would result in a caution if the goal is made and a disqualification if a goal does not result.

    Slide 32 – Goalkeeper Injury – Rule 3-3 – 2b(2) – The following are the procedures that are to be followed when a field player or goal keeper appear to be injured:

    1.      Field player – if a field player appears to be injured, the referee, with the clock running, can check to determine the extent of the injuries and if a player needs attention.  If the referee determines that the injury requires the player to be attended to or leave the game, the referee should immediately stop the clock and beckon the coach or medical personnel to attend to the player.  Once the clock is stopped for a field player, that player must leave the game.

    2.      Goalkeeper – If the goalkeeper is injured, the referee can stop the clock, check the goal keeper to determine the extent of the injury, and allow the goal keeper a short time to be ready for play. If the referee determines that the goalkeeper needs attention, the referee should immediately call the coach or medical personnel to attend to the player. When a coach or medical personnel are called onto the field to attend to a goalkeeper, the goalkeeper must leave the game.

    3.      Thus, the procedures for a field player and goal keeper are different as the field player must leave the game if the referee stops the clock, whereas the goalkeeper does not have to leave the game when the clock is stopped but only when the referee asks that the goalkeeper be attended to.

    Slide 35 – Penalty kick – Rule 14-1-4 – Questions and comments about this rule centered around the stutter step and the procedures following the stutter step.  The following are clarifications concerning the stutter step:

    1.      When a stutter step occurs before the ball is kicked, the ball had not been properly put into play thus resulting in a re-kick. This is similar to other free kicks where the ball is not properly put into play. Examples include kick-off that is not kicked forward and goal kick that does not clear the penalty area.

    2.      The stutter step should be whistled as it occurs. It is not a play on/advantage situation.  The clock should not start even if the ball is kicked before there is a whistle to stop play. On penalty kicks, the referee should alert the timer to wait for the start clock signal before starting the clock.

    3.      A player who stutter steps should receive a warning and if a stutter step is done after a warning has been issued, the player should be cautioned for unnecessary delay.

    4.      Violations by attacking or defending players during a penalty kick occur with or after the ball has been put into play; thus, the need to call the violations and enforce the penalties provided on page 64.

    5.      There is a difference between the NFHS and FIFA stutter step rule as is indicated on page 84.  Please note that the NFHS and NCAA stutter step rules are similar.
