ARTicle 21 Policies - Play Up/Play Down - RECREATIONAL Players and Teams

PLAY UP/DOWN POLICY – Recreational Players/Teams

GBYSL encourages players to play in their appropriate age group.  Playing in an age group higher than their actual age should be reserved for players with exceptional technical and tactical abilities.  There are physical, social and emotional ramifications to playing in higher age groups.  The decision to play up should be given careful consideration by parents, coaches and the club to ensure that it is in the best interest of the player.  This policy provides guidelines for requesting Play up Approval.

Play Up

ALL Recreational Players - 1 year play up allowed without approval.  Exceptions may be granted by GBYSL to players in outlying areas where an age appropriate team does not exist within their area.  Recreational players will NOT be allowed to play up more than 1 year.

Play Down

U4-U9 – Recreational players will NOT be allowed to play down.

U10-U13 – Recreational players - play down requests will be evaluated for special circumstances only.  These requests must be approved by the GBYSL Executive Board and will only be considered for one year age difference.  No team may have more than (3) players playing down.

** Special policy for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 ONLY – U11 through U14 players on established Spring 2016 recreational team rosters will be allowed to stay with their team even if they will be considered playing down based on the new USYS Age Matrix.**

All requests requiring GBYSL Executive Board approval must be submitted to the GBYSL office at least 7 days prior to the League’s Recreational Opening Day for that season.

Appeal procedures – A written request for the board to reconsider their decision can be presented to the GBYSL Executive Board.  Appeals will be heard at the discretion of the GBYSL Executive Board.

Recreational Team Play Up/Play Down

Recreational Teams will NOT be allowed to play down in any age group. 

U9 and above Recreational teams can request to play up an age group.  The determination will be made by GBYSL.

INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO SET UP AND TAKE DOWN THE GOALS

​BOWNET INSTRUCTION

1. Make sure all parts are available
a. Eight flexible pole sections – four each of top and bottom (top has a slot for net loop to attach)
b. Net and frame
c. Stakes
2. Pull out the net and prior to unfolding the legs, have one person hold the center base while a second person extends the legs. Extend the legs until two clicks are heard on each leg indicating the catches of each leg have caught – NOTE: Extend the legs slowly. If the legs are extended too quickly, the leg sections will come apart.

3. Lay the base of the goal flat on the ground and unfold the side sections of the net until a click is heard indicating the latch has caught.
4. Place the top and bottom pole sections together so four poles are created, two on each side of the net.

5. Insert poles into the sleeves at front of the net (just like inserting poles of a dome tent sleeve)
6. Attach the loop at the front of the net to the top of the pole prior to inserting the pole into the base of the net.
7. Insert the poles to the front of the net.
8. Attach the loop at the back of the net to the top of the pole prior to inserting into the pole into the base of the net.
9. Insert the poles to the back of the net.
10. Stake the goal in place.

To break down the goals:
1. Remove the stakes
2. Remove the poles from the net
3. In order to fold in the two side of the net, depress the spring pegs so the sides can fold inwards
4. There are two spring pegs on each based section (these were the two clicks heard when setting up the net) that need to be depressed in order to collapse the two side of the base.
5. Fold in the base of the net and place all parts back into the net bag and place the bag in the trailer at Moana, shed at Mary Gojack and Echo Loder and equipment box at Terrace.

 

 


Guidelines for Casts per League Guidelines

CAST & BRACES: Must have a signed doctor’s release releasing the player to play.  The Center Referee has the final say as to the safety of the player and other players regarding casts.  Casts must be wrapped with ½” foam, bubble wrap or appropriate material. Knee braces must be covered with the manufacturer’s sleeve. No other wraps will be accepted.

RECREATIONAL VS COMPETITIVE

We have received a number of inquiries about the difference between recreational and competitive (club) division.  Recreational games are typically Saturdays (older teams play Fridays) only, total of 8 games. Practices are 1 or 2 a week 
Competitive teams play local teams (you might travel to Carson City/Lake Tahoe and Truckee) and may travel out of town for tournaments. Uniforms are not included in the league fee. Competitive teams typically belong to a club, there are additional club fees and some teams will hire trainers at an additional fee.  The level of play is higher than recreational.  Teams may travel to out of state tournaments and there could be as many as 3 in the fall and as many as 6 in the Spring. 
Competitive teams practice more than once a week and could practice as many as 3 times per week in addition to games.
