Shirt Pulling

by John Puglisi, NISOA Vice President, NISOA National clinician and NISOA local assessor.

The NCAA soccer rules are very strict and specific regarding shirt and shorts pulling. From Page 74 of the 2007 NCAA Soccer rules book:

A.R. 108. A player holds an opponent by grabbing his or her clothing. RULING: Caution the offending player and award a direct free kick or penalty kick if the offense occurs in the penalty area.

We need to be consistent applying the Approved Ruling.
