The CAYSA policies on open carry and drones have been added to the Documents section of the website.
There have been a number of questions regarding the changes in youth soccer being made by the USSF. STYSA will be implementing these changes in the Fall 2016 season, so they will apply to CAYSA teams then. The USSF has a page with explanations and answers to many of the questions we've been hearing.
We'll be working with our clubs to make the transition easier for CAYSA's member clubs, families, and players.
An information sheet about game cards has been added to the Coaches Resources section.
Instructions sent by CAYSA VPs take priority.
The first CAYSA Academy Festival will be on February 27, played at both Georgetown Soccer Association and the CAYSA fields.
This is a coed, multiage event, so boys and girls and U9s and U10s are all mixed together. We've been told that one of the challenges of Academy programs like this is getting coaches to work together to balance games so players can get the greatest developmental benefit from each match, so if you find your team in an uneven match, switch out players on your team and work with the other coach to try to make the game more balanced. If your team is getting trounced in a game, you can borrow another player (or two or three) from one of your club's other teams, while the other team's coach may be removing some of the stronger players from your game. Yes, change the roster mid-game, swap players with your other team behind you, it will be okay.
The game schedule is at https://events.gotsport.com/events/Default.aspx?EventID=51928 .
Rules and guidelines are here.
If you find any scheduling oddities, like one team has games with more than 2 hours in between or your club is scheduled at both locations, please let email@example.com know as soon as possible.
Game cards will be provided by the referees. Due to the nature of some of the things we're experimenting with, the normal game cards will not be used.
