For the fall 2021 soccer season, it is now required for schools to use the new MIAA Infraction Sheets. At the completion of the game if infractions occurred, the home team should complete this form and the officials are required to complete the bottom portion. The infraction sheet does NOT need to be submitted to the MIAA, the home team should keep them for their records for the entire regular and tournament season. Click here for a PDF version
35.1Fall practice (except golf and football) may begin on 2nd Monday preceding Labor Day (August 23, 2021). No team may have more than thirteen (13) single practice sessions (i.e., "double sessions" count as two single practice sessions) through and including the Friday before Labor Day. Double practice sessions are not permitted on the first three days of fall practice.
4-2-10 NEW: Head coverings worn for religious reasons shall not be made of abrasive or hard materials; and must fit securely.
Rationale: This rule addition will allow student-athletes to express their religious beliefs through the wearing of headwear without the approval from the state.
78.2.18 The home team must complete the infraction score sheet IF any infractions given. The official must review and sign off on the information at the end of the game. The home team should keep this form for the remainder of the year. Each school is then required to enter all VARSITY infractions on-line through the MIAA Soccer Infraction reporting form found on the MIAA Soccer page. A hard copy of any coach/student disqualification form must be sent to the MIAA. (Sub-varsity level score sheets should be filed and maintained at the local level).
78.2.5 A player committing a second yellow card infraction in the same contest receives a red card. There are no exceptions. It should be reported as only a red card (not two yellows or a yellow and a red).
78.2.11 Any player who receives a third yellow card in a season shall be suspended from the next contest; a fourth yellow card and subsequent yellow cards in a season shall result in suspension for two contests. This penalty carries over to the next soccer season (or next season if senior) if happens in last contest, or the next to last contest.
78.2.16 For purposes of obtaining tournament eligibility, no team may exceed four red or fifteen TOTAL cards during the regular season. Delay of game encroachment and deliberate (intentional) handball are infractions, which will continue to be enforced and penalized. The impact of these infractions will be assessed and will be considered towards tournament ineligibility.
