2019 Coach and Team Manager Shirts Available for Pickup at Info Booth:

There are still a few new coach shirts from last year that you can ask for if you need to give to your second assistant.

CRPD Middle School Soccer Tournament Impacting our Practice:

The tourney, to be held on:
Monday, 9/28
Tuesday, 10/8
Wednesday, 10/16
Thursday, 10/24
And possibly, Wednesday, 10/30

will be taking place on the 2 fields directly north of the snack shack -  AYSO fields 8, 9, 12 & 13 - from 4 to 6:30 pm.

All teams with assigned practices on Field 8, 9, 12 & 13 during these hours will need to move to Fields 18 & 19 to the east of the Big Tree.

All teams assigned to fields 16 & 17 during these hours will need to share space as well.

There will be unlocked white goals with nets on the fields for the CRPD tourney. Please do not move them.

7/8U Games Require 2 Referees, Not 1:

Unlike the Field Monitor, which only needs to be provided by the Home team, a 7/8U game requires 2 qualified referees – one from each side, and at least one of the 2 needs to be an adult referee.

The Referee Administrators have reiterated that if the 2 required referees do not show up, the game will not be able to be started.

So please make sure that your team referee is assigned and available for Saturday’s game.

Game-time Coaching Occurs in Technical Area Only:

You are reminded that you can only coach the game from the Technical Area marked by the orange lines (one yard from the touchline, perpendicular to the center circle).

Only you and your qualified assistant/s can occupy the Technical Area during a match; no parents are allowed to coach from the sidelines – you coach, they cheer!

Please, no coaching of any kind behind the goals!

Have a wonderful game day tomorrow!

Regional Playoffs for 12U and 14U Divisions Only This Season:

Please take note that due to the large number of teams in10U divisions, as well as to the anticipated referee shortage in the final 2 weeks, we will not include the 10U divisions in the Regional Playoffs this season.

We will continue to look into the possibility of having 10U Regional Playoffs next year, with better planning and coordination with the Referee Staff.

*** Even though the minimum play rule for 14U teams is 2 quarters, coaches are encouraged to rotate the player who will have to sit out 2 quarters for each game (assuming full player participation) in the regular season; those participating in Area Playoffs must rotate the player who will have to sit out 2 quarters for each game per Area tournament rules.

UK Training Will Be Assigned Starting Monday, 9/16/2019:

Game Cards Required to be Handed in at the Referee Tent for 8U and up Divisions:

We’d especially ask the 8U coaches to fill out the game cards correctly, and remember to have their team referees turn in the cards at the Referee Tent after the game.

Those 8U game cards are very valuable for us to help form balanced teams next year in the 10U divisions.

Also, please use the cardstock game cards distributed in your coach packet; no paper game card printout will be accepted.

If you forget to bring your game card, please send someone to the Info Booth to get one.

Have a great game day tomorrow, please do bring extra water, shade and sunscreen to help deal with the hot weather!
