****** COACHING PASSES ******

From the League President:

Good afternoon Coaches and Coordinators,

It has come to the board's attention that there is a lot of confusion regarding coach passes.
While NYSWYSA is no longer requiring coaches to possess a coach's pass. this league finds that determination does not fit to our standard of safe play. Therefore we require that ALL coaches and players need to present a pass to the official prior to the game starting. If a pass is unattainable, a CURRENT copy of the Risk Management certification will be required, but this should be a last resort. Failure to display these documents makes the coach/player ineligible, and can result in a forfeit if that is the only coach available.
This for the safety of the kids, therefore is not taken lightly.

GotSport - More Info

At our coaches' meeting on June 2, some clubs pointed out that they did not get earlier emails about "how to register their players and get player passes for them."  Here is information that was in an...

Phone-It-In

Home coaches must report game results at the conclusion of each contest. Use the PhoneItIn button in the top navigation of this page, and the league PIN (2238), along with your game number, to report the results.

(The referee sends in the game report, but this does not cause the standings to be updated.)

Coaches Meeting

Coaches meeting (SUNDAY, 6/2) is not strictly mandatory, but is advisable for new coaches to the league.  It's an opportunity to hear others' questions and to get reminders about how things are done.

2024 Pre-Season Announcements

  • League registration fees will be unchanged, still $100/team.
  • Referee fees are being raised this year.  Only one referee will be assigned per game:
    • U11: $50  (was $45)
    • U13: $60  (was $55)
    • U15: $80 (was $75)
    • U18: $90 (was $85)
  • ​The U18 age brackets will again allow graduated seniors to participate.  Players must still be born in 2006 or later. 
  • "Club Referees": A list of "club referees" is being assembled for people who are not certified referees, but who will be allowed by clubs to referee games, particularly at the lower age brackets where referees are hard to find.   Please send names and contact information to our Assignor, Mark Simons.
  • A new fine schedule will be in place for 2024.  See the 2024 League Rules document for details.
  • GotSport: NYSWYSA this year has adopted GotSport for player rostering, rather than RosterPro.  Please make yourself familiar with this site.  See the PLAYER REGISTRATION tab of this website for details, and reach out to NYSWYSA's Pam Whitcomb (pwhitcomb@nyswysa.org) if you have questions.
  • Local signups: Clubs can "sign up" players into their own club however they like: (Demosphere, local web pages, paper forms, etc.)  In the end, player info collected during those signups must be imported into GotSport so that players can be placed onto an official roster.
  • Risk Management requirements (background checks, SafeSport training) must be completed for every coach and assistant in your club.  See the RISK MANAGEMENT tab of this website for more information.
    • New for 2024: Players who will be 18 before 7/31/2024 must also complete the SafeSport training.  It is free of charge, and details will be announced when they are known.
  • Game Cancellations: Each game day, please watch the website for global game suspensions.  Hopefully, this summer will not be a repeat of last summer with all of the air quality issues, but any such widespread postponements of games will be announced by 4pm on game days.  Games postponed for such reasons must be made up within short order (e.g., 1 week) or fines will be imposed.
