MYSL Update - September 13, 2010
IMPORTANT - This email is being sent to a new email list of coaches that is based on the 2010/2011 registration. Team managers have not been included. If you want your manager to receive these weekly updates, please email me the team name and age, the manager name and the manager's email address.
~Our thoughts go out to our friends and neighbors in San Bruno.
Coaches - please make sure that you are no longer using the transfer forms that require 5 signatures. They can be thrown away. The new forms are available at the MYSL Office or online at the CYSA North web site at this link.
All movements will require the golden rod.
All transfers will require a new photo.
Any missing paperwork or labels are due AT ONCE!
All MYSL Coaches should register for the President's Cup. MYSL Coaches will need to register and pay online or by check. If you are eligible for reimbursement per the MYSL League policies, please bring the printed registration and receipt to us by October 1, 2010. If you do not bring to us by October 1, you are on your own and we are NOT responsible for any fees. Please contact Mr. Guzman if there are any quesitons or if you need help or access to the web.
Please see attached CCSL Rules. It is important for coaches to have a copy of these rules with them for all games. All teams playing CCSL should go to https://ccsl.gotsport.com/.
When you are logged in, click on CCSL League and then go to "schedule". From there, you can also review the rules. Pay especially close attention to the rules about guest players and suspensions.
You can go to the team manager information to print match cardes. You should print game cards when you are the home team. For cards, go to the team account, sign in, go to the schedule and click on the game #. You should be able to print the game cards from there.
Also, check on how to report your games. All of this info is on the rules and team manager information.
With the new CCSL rules related to guest players, MYSL coaches should be working together to make the teams stronger and giving kids a chance to be exposed to a higher level of play. It is very easey to guest, just read the rules. Coaches - please work together to make our teams and our league stronger!
See below on rules for roster.
Guest players may be added to the gotsoccer roster or handwritten on the match card; be sure all three copies have the guest player's jersey number, CYSA number and full legal name.
The reason both teams should bring the match card is to ensure the rosters are accurate (click here for instructions on how to trim your roster for a specific match).
The home team is responsible for handing three match cards to the Center Referee.
The referee will sign all three at the completion of the match, keeping one, and giving one to each team.
Both teams are responsible for keeping a copy of the match card until a week after the season ends in case of discrepancy.

Soccer America recently named their 2010 NCAA Women's and Men's Preseason All-American teams. Of the 25 female players selected, 24 participated in the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP). The one player named who did not participate in US Youth Soccer ODP was raised in Canada. On the men's side, 25 players were named to the preseason list, 21 of which were members of US Youth Soccer ODP (Three of the players named to the list grew up outside of the United States).
For many players, one goal of participating in elite programs is further exposure to collegiate coaches and therefore access to a college education which for a select group will include financial resources to further a university education through success in soccer.
US Youth Soccer ODP, National Championship Series and the National League each offer meaningful matches for youth players to test themselves and to display their abilities in unique opportunities before college coaches seeking to identify prospective student-athletes. US Youth Soccer events provide coaches at the next level, specifically collegiate and national staff, with a premier stage to evaluate and recruit future roster selections.
In 2010, each of the four Regional championship events of the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series, attracted over 200 coaches including representatives from the top 25 men's and women's programs based on the final 2009 NSCAA/adidas National Rankings for NCAA Division I schools. The same can be said for US Youth Soccer ODP and National League competitions where coaches know the players are engaged in meaningful matches and the level of play is at its highest.
For those players that have been named to Soccer America's Preseason All-American teams and to all of those players who are accomplishing their dreams as collegiate players – congratulations.
