Welcome back to Fall Soccer!!
BE EARLY – At least 30 minutes prior to your first game. Coaches, and your crew mates, get worried and start calling me and I am working games too.
Double-check your schedules as there were some time/field changes.
A link to the fees is on the schedule login landing page. Print it and keep it with you. Teams pay half.
No Dogs: Schools do not allow animals on their fields. Please ask the coach to ask the parent to remove the animals. We rent the fields from the schools and can not risk losing the fields due to an animal. At City Park fields, animals should be at least 15 yards away from the field.
Player Cards are not required the first weekend. Many coaches will have player cards. Some will not.
If you’ve never done U8 before, REVIEW THE Build Out line rules.
Recreational: NO HEADING in U8, U9, U10 or U12
Signature: NO HEADING in U9, U10 or U11. Heading is ALLOWED in Signature U12.
There are some Rec players who were added late and don’t yet have a uniform. They may play in any shirt that’s generally the same color as their team, or an appropriate pinnie.
JUSA Recreational U8, U9, and U10 play QUARTERS in the fall. Substitutions may ONLY be made at the quarter break. Since all players must play at least 3 quarters, you should mark the players sitting out each quarter on the game card so that if you attempt to mark a player sitting out for a second quarter, you can remind the coach of the mandatory, minimum play time requirements.
All other age groups and all Signature and InterCity matches allow unlimited substitutions at any stoppage. Players must play at least 50% of the game – a responsibility of the coach to maintain, but point out any obvious issues.
If you arrive at your field and the grass is long, please let us know so we can send a notice to the school district.
If field lines are faint, use cones to mark sidelines and boxes.
Game CardsCoaches should hand you a completed card for you to check players against cards.
CSL/Signature Games on Travis Ranch and Yorba Linda Middle School Fields
Centers will need to record the score on the CSL app or mail in the match report.
Coaches should give you a stamped envelope to mail in the match report.
Refs who download the CSL ref app and use it to photograph and submit the match reports do not need to mail the match report but should keep the copy until the end of the season.
It will be very warm this weekend. Allow hydration breaks as needed. Running clock.
