Rules. Can't live with 'em (well, some of them...) and can't live without 'em! As an organization that holds membership in national soccer organizations, there are rules that Iowa Soccer and its members must follow that we can't wave a wand and change.
Iowa Soccer has its own membership rules, bylaws and policies and although we try hard not to let those get in the way of the ball, the player and the goal, keeping those documents aligned with our mission and vision is an ongoing process. In fact, many of them really are about getting the ball, the player and the goal on the field -- safely and in a way that promotes fun and development.
