"There is still a lack of information to make a recommendation one way or the other. The problem with banning heading is you'd have kids running out of the way of balls, and they might be banging into each other that way."

-- Mike Singleton, executive director of Massachusetts Youth Soccer and head men's soccer coach at MIT, on whether to ban heading in youth soccer. (Boston Globe)

    Are we trying to make steps backward? I mean really. Heading is an integral part of the game, a basic skill you need to have to be able to play this game.

    Switch to futsol til 12, develop foot skills and movement. Plenty of time to knock the sense out of the lads later
