2008-9 NCAA Soccer Rules Book

The 2008-9 NCAA Men’s and Women’s soccer rule book has been published and is available for download (Adobe Acrobat Reader required).

Overall, the rule changes are minor (more details here). The most significant rule changes include:

  • The penalty for a team which fails to provide an official game roster before the beginning of the game is a forfeit.
  • The diagonal system of control shall be used. There are listed exceptions for using the dual system only when an assigned official fails to appear for the game.

Rule changes will now be considered on a two year cycle. The current edition of the soccer rules book will apply for the 2008 and 2009 seasons. Specific rule interpretations and points of emphasis will be presented at the mandatory rules clinic in August.
