  1. For registration, an updated policy has been approved regarding the team roster size needed to register a team.  The policy is:

“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.”

  1. They will need to submit their blackout dates to the game schedule by July 22 based upon the tournaments they know or think they may be applying.

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.

  • HOME team is responsible for printing a "current" game card and providing it to the Center Referee.  It is not the Referee's responsibility to bring the game card. 
  • HOME team is responsible for providing the game ball.
  • HOME team is responsible for placing the corner flags on the field.  The code to the box at South Valley is 5301.
  • HOME team is responsible for returning the corner flags to the equipment box and locking them up.  Failure to return the flags is a $75 fine assessed to the team,.

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.

Thank you!
