Kansas Premier Soccer League was originally the premier league run by Heartland Soccer Association.That has since changed and KPSL (Kansas Premier Soccer League) is now one of six soccer clubs that are playing under the “umbrella” of Heartland Soccer Association. The word “League” is still part of the organization’s name for historical reasons. KPSL is considered the home of the independent team or club.

Important rule changes put in place by FIFA that will be implemented by Heartland this season.
- At a goal kick and a free kick for the defending team in their own penalty area, the ball is in play when it is “kicked and moved”, i.e., it can be played before it leaves the penalty area.
- For defensive walls, attacking team players must be at least 1 meter away from the defensive wall
- On Penalty Kicks, the goal keeper has to have one foot on the line
- On dropped balls, the ball will be dropped for one player of the team that last touched the ball at the point of the last touch. All other players must be at least 4.5 yards away.
- Deliberate handball remains an offense. There are some additional instruction when handling, even if accidental, will be a free kick. (This one will take a little longer to perfect)
- On the coin toss at the start of the match, the team that wins the toss can now choose to take the kick off or which goal to attack.
- Finally, players being substituted can leave from any part of the field. Substitutions still have to enter at the mid line.
Here is a link to a document explaining how the above rule changes will be implemented during games.
