“GBYSL will not register a team to league play unless the team roster has the minimum number of players to field a team according to the team age division. For example, U10, U11 and U12 will play 9v9; therefore they must have 9 players to register the team. U13 and up teams play 11v11 and must have 11 players to register the team to the game schedule.”
Practice fields will be available starting Monday, August 3, 2015. I have received confirmation of our practice fields. It is time to request your field choice. We are going to do sign ups a little bit different this season. The practice field list is posted to www.gbysl.org under the “Competitive Division” menu tab. It is at the top of the page. You cannot miss it!

We have several new field choices this season. They are- Church Park in Sparks, Marvin Moss Elementary in Sparks, Clayton MS track infield in Reno, Bernice Matthews Elementary in Reno, Dodson Elementary in Reno, Warner Elementary in Reno, Westergard Elementary in Reno, Panther Valley Park in Reno, and Lemmon Valley field in North Valleys area of Reno.

Many of the fields have specific time slots, please pay attention. This is so we may fit as many teams as possible on the field each night.
Park Rangers and City/County Officials will be looking for your league-issued permits. I will be sending you a permit written on league letterhead and the actual city and county permit once I receive them. The GBYSL letter will have your team name, practice field, practice day and time on it. Please make sure you have it in your possession while practicing. This will also help you with any non-GBYSL teams on your practice field during your designated practice time. We have had trouble with non-permitted teams practicing without the proper permits.
UNTIL YOU RECEIVE YOUR FIELD PERMIT, KEEP A COPY OF THE EMAIL CONFIRMATION I SEND TO YOU ONCE I HAVE CONFIRMED YOUR FIELD.
PRACTICE FIELDS WILL BE SCHEDULED STARTING MONDAY, AUGUST 3rd.

There are several items that have been brought to my attention in reviewing the game reports and hearing from the referees. I would like to remind you of some procedural requirements so your game does not end in a forfeit or a fine assessment to your team.
1. The team listed as HOME on the game schedule has the following requirements - even if it is not your "home" field.
2. ALL teams have the responsibility to provide the Center Referee with approved team player cards and coach/team official cards. There have been cases this season of non-carded team officials on the team sideline. As of today, the Referees have been reminded that only carded and rostered team coaches and team officials may be on the team sideline. All other adults must be on the opposite side of the field. There are no exceptions.
3. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE update your player's jersey number on your team roster. Once you have done so, please email me so I can refresh your roster and the numbers will show on your game card. There are numerous teams without player jersey numbers and incorrect jersey numbers on their game card. The referees need those numbers to be on the game card and if they are not, a delay in the start of the game may occur while waiting for you to put the correct numbers with the player on the game card.
4. Intra-Club Guest Player Policy. Many teams are using the Intra-Club guest player policy this season to avoid forfeiting a game. Several teams have been trying to use guest players without following the procedure. To do so, will result in a forfeit by your team. The current version of the guest player policy is posted to the GBYSL website under the "By-laws, Rules & Policy" menu tab on the left side of the website, www.gbysl.org. There are detailed instructions on the use of the policy and how to get approval for guest players. Please review the policy so you are aware of proper procedures.
Remember, email me when you update your jersey numbers. If you have any questions, please email or call me.
