2016 Rules Changes

The latest soccer updates are listed on the NFHS website.

Soccer Games – A total of 21 games is the maximum number of contests that a team may play. (scheduled games plus tournaments = 21)

Immediately after 1st round of the playoffs, (January 25) teams that advance must submit a team program roster and a team photo to MHSAA (these may be submitted earlier)

NFHS Soccer Rules:

4-1-1 (a)
The home team shall wear solid white jerseys and solid white socks, and the visiting team shall wear dark jerseys and socks (dark is defined as any color which contrasts with white). Prior to and during the game, jerseys shall be tucked into the shorts, unless manufactured to be worn outside.

4-1-1 (b) Both socks shall be the same color, with the home team wearing solid white socks and the visiting team wearing socks of a single dominant color, but not necessarily the color of the jersey. If tape or a similar material is applied externally to the socks, it must be of a similar color as that part of the sock to which it is applied

Game Balls
All game balls used during regular season and state playoff contests must have the National Federation Stamp.
