|+ ||Rules to Remember|
As the games approach, here are some rules to remember:
In any division, there is NO sliding of any kind by any one. Sliding will be determined when a player leaves their feet to go to the ground, leading with the feet, in order to play the ball. This can be done near others or by ones self. A goalie can not slide out and lead with the feet, they must either lay out to the side or lead with their hands. If a player slides, they will be issued a Yellow Card, and if contact is made with the slide then a Red Card will be issued. No Questions Asked.
All players must have a picture ID - Driver License, College ID, or School ID - that has a picture of the player and their name on it. Failure to produce an ID will result in not being allowed to play in the game. No Questions Asked.
All jerseys by the second Sunday of the season, March 5th, must have a number that is permanently attached to the jersey, shirt, etc. No taped numbers will be allowed, and no blank jerseys being used as "0" will be allowed. Do not double up numbers. If your number can not stay on your jersey, shirt, etc., then you can not play. No Questions Asked.
Home team will be held responsible for being able to wear an alternate color in case of both teams wearing the same color.
|+ ||2017 Spring Season|
The 2017 Spring Season is upon us and we are preparing for a great season. Here is some vital information for the spring season.
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! and closes March 10th.
Again, we will be doing ONLY 7-man soccer this season.
We will only be able to have 80 teams for the Spring Season. Once the league hits that cap, then no teams will be allowed to register - returning or new. You can ask to be put on a wait list, and if a team doesn't make, then your team can be added. IF you sign up your team, make sure you get at least 5 players signed up a week prior to the league starting. We will start removing teams who don't have enough players and replacing with teams who have full rosters. Again, get your team and team members signed up early.
Divisions 2-6 will now have some limitations on what divisions you can sign up for if you plan on playing in multiple divisions. This new restriction will apply to everyone who signs up to play. Please read the following very carefully:
Division 6: A player who plays in D-6 can only play in D-6, male and female players alike. The male age rule of being over 30 still applies.
Division 5: A player who signs up for D-5 can also play in D-4 but NO other division, male and female players alike.
Division 4: A player who signs up for D-4 can also play in D-3 OR D-5 but NO other division. Also, players are NOT allowed to sign up for all three, you must pick two. This applies to male and female players alike.
Division 3: A player who signs up for D-3 can also play in D-4 OR D-2 but NO other division. Also, players are NOT allowed to sign up for all three, you must pick two. This applies to male and female players alike.
Division 2: A player who signs up for D-2 can also play in D-3 but NO other division, male and female players alike.
We as a league are trying to limit the amount of sandbagging, or playing down, and looking to improve the spirit of play in each division. If we see a player and or team is out of place we will move you no questions asked. This league is designed to be fun and competitive, but when players/teams play out of division it becomes neither.
The cost for you to play on single team will be $60 a person, and if you sign up for a second or third team. it will be $40 an additional team.
We will be playing all games on the Synthetic fields at Veteran's Park, and not playing on any of the grass fields. This will help to solve the rainout issues.
Will we start the season on Thursday, February 23rd and continue until Sunday, 7th.
Games will be played on Sunday's from 2-11pm, and Tuesday/Thursday's from 6-11pm. If you have a team schedule request for game times and days, please email our league scheduler as soon as possible. If a game gets posted, then we are not going to change it. Get your request in early.
All players playing in the field must have a large visible number permanently attached to the jersey, and the jerseys need to be the same color. Also, ALL players MUST wear shin guards while on the field playing. Failure to wear appropriate jerseys or shin guards can result in being issued a card.
|+ ||Team Placement & League Behavior|
Please be aware that we as a league are going to start monitoring teams a little more closely this season. If your team dominated the division they played in previous season, then we ask that you move up a level. Not playing in the correct division can cause teams to start playing wild and dirty. This then causes for players to get into confrontations and fights with both the other team and the refs. This is unacceptable behavior and will not be tolerated. If we see teams running up scores or playing in the incorrect division, we will move you up with out question.
|+ ||Trash issues|
Action needed to be taken due to the amount of trash left on fields by players and spectators. Referees and officials will note trash remaining after games or game sets, excessive trash will be rewarded with an executive yellow card given to the captains of teams that were involved or played on that field that day. While this is not entirely equitable, it is the only method to curtail the trash residue through involvement of all teams. If this is not curbed, then prices for all have to go up to compensate for the increased cost of trash pickup.
|+ ||Insurance Claims|
If you or a team mate get hurt during a game, here is the link to file a claim with our league insurance. Again, this is a secondary coverage that will help cover a small portion after your insurance covers what it covers. The league has nothing to do with the insurance group as far as filing claims, but we can help direct you where to go for paper work.
Clink on the link below, or copy and paste. It has the forms needed:
Select the Insurance Claim Verification. You can also contact them to send any paper work you need.
