US/AYSO Player Development Initiatives (PDI)

The Area 1S PDI Cheat Sheet
In the 2017 fall season, AYSO will be implementing the US Soccer Player Development Initiative (PDI). Details on changes to the AYSO National Rules and the official Section 1 interpretation can be found at:

1. Age Brackets - AYSO will be using birth year registration - Change in terminology: 10U instead of U10

2. Changes at 6U and 8U - Pass-in to replace throw-in (2 yard distance still required)

3. Introduction of the build-out line (BOL) in 9U and 10U - The BOL will be located halfway between the halfway line and the penalty area line, parallel to the goal line - The BOL should be marked with a line or by cones or flags off the field

4. No punting in 9U-12U - Once Goal Keeper has the ball in hand, they may only throw it, roll it or place it on the ground and kick it - A punt or similar action is punished by an IFK (usual IFK restart rules apply) - In 11U and 12U, the opponents must leave the Penalty Area once the GK has possession - In 9U and 10U, the opponents must retreat behind the BOL

5. The BOL in goal kicks and with GK possession in 9U and 10U - Opponents must retreat beyond the BOL - For goal kicks, the opponents may cross the BOL once the ball has been kicked - For GK possession, the opponents may cross the BOL once the GK has released the ball from their hands - Treat like “respecting the distance” – infraction leads to re-take - Defender or GK must play the ball to a teammate on their side of the BOL - If the ball is deliberately played beyond the BOL, give an IFK to the opponents at the place where the ball was played (usual IFK restart rules apply) - All free kicks are taken as if there is no BOL

6. The BOL and offside - Opponents can only be in an offside position when closer to the goal than the BOL (there is no offside position between the half line and the BOL)
