Should soccer kids be banned from heading the ball?

The sport of soccer may never be the same again with Australian doctors tentatively supporting moves overseas to ban children from heading the ball during matches, in a bid to reduce head injuries.

Earlier this week the US Soccer Federation moved to prohibit children under the age of 13 from using their heads to make contact with the ball during soccer matches.

Children under the age of 10 will also no longer be allowed to practice headers during training sessions.
