SPRING 2014 COMPETITIVE REGISTRATION INFORMATION

 

Coaches, each Club Registrar has been sent instructions for Spring League and State Registration.  Please contact your club registrar with questions.  If your team is an independent (non-club) team, please contact me directly at either my email address, vicki.gbysl@sbcglobal.net, or my phone, 775-250-8509. 

Here is a brief summary of what the Club Registrars were sent:
Registration Deadline is a date different from each Club Registrar.  Please ask your Registrar what date she/he needs your spring registration.  My date falls in the middle of January.

Returning fall teams:

1.     1.  Do not submit fall paperwork again.  The players are registered to a continuing team.

2.      2.  Do submit a Player Action Form and the player card for each player NOT returning to any of your club teams this spring.

3.      3.  Do submit to me a list of players moved from one team to another in your club. Do submit to me their fall player card.  I will need to officially move them on the NYSA side so they can get a new player card and be a part of the official roster.

4    4.  Do submit a list of new players on returning teams so that I can issue the player a player card.

5.      5.  If a returning fall team has new players on it for spring, please see #4 above.  New players will need to have their birth certificate and photo uploaded to the player account – just like we did for fall registration.

6.      6.  Do submit a Fee Computation form with the registration fees of $100 per player.  This form is posted to the”Competitive” menu tab on the GBYSL website.

7.      7.  Do make sure all your returning teams have registration/medical release forms AND signed Parent Conduct forms for all of their players.  They will need them for spring check in on March 14.

8.      8.  Do enter your returning fall teams to the GBYSL 2014 Competitive (SPRING) League” if they want to play in the spring game schedule.

All teams will be required to check in for spring stickers and verification of medical releases (just as we did in fall) prior to the game schedule starting.  This date will be March 13, 2014.

New spring teams:

1.       Do send new spring teams to both the “GBYSL 2014 Competitive (SPRING) League” and the “2013/2014 NYSA State Registration – Cards/Rosters (8/1/2013)”. Remember, the NYSA State Registration is where I print each team’s player cards and official rosters.

2.      Do process these teams the same as you did for fall 2013 registration.  All players will need to either have their birth certificate uploaded to their player account or have a Yellow highlighted “V” next to their birthdate and name.

3.      Do return transferred player cards to me.  If you move players from a fall team to a new spring team, then I will need their fall card returned so that I can officially move the player to the new team and issue him/her a new player card and put him/her on the new official roster.

4.      Do submit a fee computation form for each of the new teams.  Registration fees are $100 per player, plus one time annual team fee of $25.  The fee computation form is posted to the “Competitive” menu tab on the GBYSL website.

5.      Do make sure that all new teams have a notebook with their player registration form/medical release paperwork AND Parent Conduct forms ready to present at the team check in date.

SPRING 2014 REGISTRATION REMINDERS

  1. For spring 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 January 17th based upon the tournaments they know or think they may be applying.
  2. Each team is required to have at least two certified USSF referees.  The names of their referees are required to be submitted for the game schedule.
  3. Player adds after the game schedule season begins, must be submitted by Tuesday of each week to be returned by Friday.

Reprint from several years ago, requested reprint

Let your child play high school soccer.

 

As I sit here at my desk attempting to figure out the beginning of life, figuring out the crazy stock market direction, and wondering why a student would skip playing high school soccer to play club soccer in the fall, it suddenly dawns on me.

 

I write this as a parent, successful club coach, league administrator and volunteer in many business related high school programs such as Junior Achievement, FBLA and Rotary.  Why deny them this opportunity?

 

There are certainly reasons on both sides however I wonder what is best for the player both physically and emotionally.  I have received numerous e mails over the last several weeks asking me if we are offering an older group for fall.  I know there are coaches out there discouraging high school soccer.  GBYSL is not offering any competitive program above U14 for fall. We are offering a recreational Street Soccer program for the older players not playing high school soccer.  Many of you have told me stories about how high school helped their team and or child. I have heard stories that players in high school are required to maintain a certain GPA; the students work hard on grades so they can play high school, ultimately it raising their GPA.  Stories how their confidence went up after the high school season and that confidence was brought into the spring club team. The stories are countless, a vast majority of them are positive.

 

I have researched the internet for articles on this subject and it seems to be pretty much evenly divided in this debate with a slight bias towards the high school sports.  I know the argument l I'm an A licensed coach, the high school coaches don't have my experience" or "high school does nothing for them developmentally" and "I'm looking to build the best travel team".  Bottom line, what is best for the student and their adolescence development?  What do the players want, let them decide not the coach? 

 

The high school experience can not be replaced by playing club soccer. The experiences, the friendship in high school are important in the development of our youth players.  The bond they get from high school is long lasting, the yearbook photos, wearing the game day shirt at school, and building the overall high school pride.  The team photo and player pictures in the yearbook can never be replaced or relived.  Both programs have their merits, why can't the program coexist?  The varsity letters and jackets are something that can be never replaced with club soccer, the pride of wearing them on campus is huge. Let's not forget the publicity with our local newspaper. The league has worked very hard to get articles highlighting our local prep players.  The games, statistics, and highlights are published weekly. At the end of every season we have a complete listing of " All State " teams, "A" team, "B" team and "honorable mention".  The college coaches do follow those statistics for recruiting. 

 

Let's not forget the opportunity for the NIAA All State Academic/Athletic letter. This is significant on a college resume, the ability to play varsity while maintaining a high GPA, nothing compares to this in fall club soccer.

 

            Soccer NIAA Academic/Athletic

3A boys champion = Boulder City , 3.33; Runner-up = Spring Creek, 3.30.

4A boys champion = South Tahoe , 3.36; Runner-up = Bishop Manogue, 3.35.

3A girls champion = Pershing County , 3.44; Runner-up = Spring Creek, 3.40.

4A girls champions = Douglas & Galena, 3.71.

 

I know the argument of exposure to college coaches and getting "seen".  The college coaches do not recruit in the fall, they are focusing on their teams and typically do not travel to tournaments.  In all honesty most players have a far better chance to receive an academic scholarship over an athletic scholarship.  There are plenty of college showcase tournament that are offered when the high school season is over.  There are several top rated college showcase tournaments in Las Vegas starting in November, many in California and other west coast states. 

 

I can personally talk about this experience with my own son; he played soccer at Galena High School for all four years. He was co-captain on the undefeated JV team and that experience gave him a level of confidence that could not be achieved in club soccer.  His junior year Galena won the Northern Nevada Zone Championship, the celebration afterward was amazing, school pride was riding high. The following week they played Bishop Gorman and won.  Remember Bishop Gorman dominates the soccer high school scene in Nevada .  The students that flew down to Las Vegas High and watched the game were treated to one of the best high school championship games in many years. The following day they lost to Las Vegas in a very hard fought game.  Monday, at school, the players pride was higher than ever before, the school announcement made every player sit high in his chair and know they were part of something very special.  You can't get that feeling from fall club soccer.  The awards ceremony was very special as the players received their varsity letter and other awards.  I can tell you this, at their reunions they will be talking about beating Gorman and perhaps will remember some club games; high school experience follows you for life. I know many of you have the same experience as you have shared them with me over the last several weeks.  The opportunity to play for State Champions is huge, seeing the zone championship banner hang in the gymnasium is bigger than you can imagine.  Why take this opportunity from them, let them be involved in something that will last a lifetime.  I only wish our high school program was recognized when I played. We had to provide everything and it was not sanctioned by the school.

 

Again the high school experience is something every child should be allowed to participate; it will only have long lasting memories.

 

This brings me to another point, why is soccer in our nation still struggling. Look at high school football, basketball, baseball, softball and volleyball. All have great high school programs and we don't see high school players opting out to play football some where else. The stands are filled, the parents are involved and the players have fun. 


I know this will not be well received by some of out there and that is OK with me, I have no hidden agenda, no financial reason to write this only my desire and hope the kids will be given the opportunity to play high school soccer and have fun with their high school team.

FALL 2013 COMPETITIVE SCHEDULE

A couple of things you should be aware of... We are super limited on play dates for this season. I have made a very concerted effort to not give teams games during fall breaks in their school districts, but due to a lack of fields, this wasn't always possible. Week day game times in October start getting a little earlier as the month goes on. I consulted sunset tables so that games could get completed before dark. I have checked and double checked that all blackout dates in GotSoccer are figured in. I have done my best to conform to all the noted requests, but I have to be honest... over 500 emails relating to the Fall season is a lot to keep straight. Please let me know if you see any massive errors like playing 2 games on one day at the same time in different cities. Good luck this season Eric
