2011-2012 NFHS Soccer Rule 1-4-1

The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), the governing body for high school athletics, modified NFHS Soccer Rule 1, Section 4, Article 1 to clarify the anchoring position of a soccer goal as related to the base of a football goal post. The 2011-2012 NFHS Soccer Rules Book – NFHS Soccer Rule 1-4-1 now reads:

“If portable goals are used, they shall be adequately anchored, secured or counterweighted to the ground. If used on a football field, the front of the portable goals should be at least two (2) yards in front of the base of the existing football goalposts.”
