While 2019 is not a biennial rules change season for NCAA Soccer, the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel (PROP) has approved a new rule allowing for hydration breaks for matches played in high humidity conditions. The PROP has also modified the rules regarding penalties enforced against a team who allows an ejected or suspended player to participate in a match. In this case, the team will no longer be required to forfeit the match where an ejected or suspended player participates.
Full text of the rules changes is available on the Forms section of our web site and below. Please note that these rules changes will not be reflected in the hardcopy rules book until the next revision for the 2020/2021 season.
