It is the goal of Indian Hill Recreational Soccer to provide fun, safe, and organized play time for our children.  We have developed our program to place increased emphasis on developing the skills of our players at the younger ages by incorporating training staff to assist a parent coach into each of their practices.  Keeping our younger players with peers of their age and grade provides safe play while allowing for consistent instruction. As always we depend on our parents to coach the teams from 8U-19U.  Teams will be determined by the number of available coaches and date of your registration.


*** 16U/19U- We are aware of school JV/Varsity tryouts.  You may  register and not pay until the high school team placements are complete at which time we will determine our numbers to form teams for the fall.

Concussion Legislation & what it means to IHRC Soccer
by posted 05/28/2014

In various parts of the country, states are introducing laws regarding concussion and youth sports; Ohio passed its concussion bill on December 20th, 2012.  The bill defines the responsibility of players, parents, coaches, referees and league officials when a player is believed to be exhibiting the signs, symptoms or behavior of a person who may have sustained a concussion.
A concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are SERIOUS. A concussion may be caused by a bump, blow, jolt to the head, face, neck or elsewhere on the body with an impulsive force transmitted to the head. The injury can range from mild to severe and disrupt the way the brain normally works. Although many concussions are mild, concussions of any type are serious and can result in severe complications if not managed properly. This can include prolonged brain damage and even death.
Laws such as the one passed in Ohio, contain four main provisions, these are as follows.
  • SAY Soccer Districts and Areas are responsible and must make available to every player and their parents an informational sheet, that has been developed by their State Department of Health. This informational sheet is available to you on your player's team website from the Documents option of the team menu.  Please take the time to review it. You can also locate the informational sheet here:
  • SAY Soccer will provide an informational page on their website of recommendations for all coaches and referees advising them of their individual responsibilities. This has been communicated to IHRC coaches and referees.
  • Many states are now asking that all coaches and referees to take an online training certification before they are allowed to work with youth soccer players. IHRC has asked its coaches and referees to become certified prior to coaching this spring 2014 season.
The final part of the law involves the removal of the player and the return to play. Key points in this are as follows:
  • Coaches, referees, or officials must remove from play an athlete exhibiting the signs and symptoms of a concussionduring practice or a game.
  • The athlete cannot return to play on the same day that he she is removed after exhibiting signs of a concussion.
  • The athlete is not permitted to return to play until he/she has been assessed by a physician or licensed health care provider approved by the Youth sports organization and received written clearance.
