Heartland has eliminated the traditional handshake by referees with players and coaches after games-they are to meet and walk off field together immediately after final whistle.


Heartland League has added the no header rule for U11 teams and below. This is for intentional heading and will be an indirect free kick to the opposing team. If in the box the ball will be placed on the goal (18) line closest to the infraction.
