Based on extensive research and wide consultation coordinated by Shane Alvisio the JFA Referee Committee would like to extend the safety rules for juniors to our international events and the national championships.

Attached are the new rules which will be implemented at this year’s ACTIO.  Some changes may need more detailed explanation to avoid any misinterpretation. To assist coaches and players the members of the Committee will be providing briefings to coaches before all open events and the national championships.

The adaptation of the new rules will be watched carefully and if any adjustments are necessary they will be discussed and relevant changes will be made.
