DOGSO (Denying an Obvious Goal-Scoring Opportunity) - Please read carefully these two scenarios communicated directly from The NFHS:

1. Inside the penalty box:

  1. If the defensive player is attempting to play the ball and fouls the attacking player denying an obvious goal-scoring opportunity, the penalty shall be a penalty kick and the defender is shown a yellow card and sent off. (12-8-1f, 15)
  2. If the defensive player is not attempting to play the ball and fouls the attacking player denying an obvious goal-scoring opportunity, the penalty shall be a penalty kick and the defender is disqualified with a red card. (12-8-2d, 4)

2. Outside the penalty box:

  1. If the defensive player fouls the attacking player outside the box denying an obvious goal-scoring opportunity, whether playing the ball or not, the penalty is a direct free kick and the defender is disqualified with a red card. (12-8-2d, 3)

Soccer Players required to have NINE (9) days of practice - In May of 2015 the KSHSAA Board of Directors added language to Rule 38 indicating a soccer player must participate in nine days of practice with the team prior to participating in a contest. The primary reason for the change is concern about heat acclimatization and hydration awareness. Each sport has different conditioning and practice needs unique to that sport. Coaches are responsible for documenting these practices. (Rule 38.1.2.a)

For spring girls' soccer season, the Executive Board put in the following EXCEPTION: Girls participating in the state basketball tournament may participate with fewer than nine days of practice.
