Reminder: Inclement Weather

Today (Tue 7/16) is another iffy day for weather, depending on where you are.   The league is not doing any widepsread cancellations.  Reminder of rule 5.13 (A):

If it is clear in advance of the game, that weather conditions make the home field unplayable, the home coach must try to notify the Coordinator of Referees and the visiting team so that they may avoid unnecessary traveling.

There recently have been cases related to a different issue: the hesitation/unwillingness of a team to travel to a remote site due to perceived dangers en route.  Our rules do not cover this. Any team (Home or Visitor) deciding in advance that a game will not happen is not supported by our rules.  All such situations should be sent to the League President for review.  If the issue is raised early enough, potential remedies include application of a grace period, permission to reschedule, etc.  Without league permission, any cancellation subjects the responsible team to a potential forfeit situation.

News Flashes


Wednesday July 10 League-Wide Cancellation

The ongoing possibility of storms has led the league board to suspend all games today.  This affects 17 games, below.  Coaches need to work together to provide a new date/time/location for a makeup game.  The new game must be on or before August 5.   If it is impossible to agree mutually, you may request that the league classify this game as a "no-play".  If the league determines that one team is not working in good faith to find a suitable date, a forfeit could be assessed.

HEAT ADVISORY NOTES -- PLEASE READ

If your club relies on a school that is routinely cancelling "after-school activities" due to the heat, please have your club President contact them ASAP and appeal to them to not include evening activities in this closure.  Explain:

  • The conditions at 7pm and beyond are not the same as "after-school".
  • You have a valid reservation
  • You carry your own insurance (assuming you do)
  • The league has rules to safeguard the players.

If you are unsuccessful, you must report your field closure to the league EACH DAY so that games can be postponed and referees notified, etc. 

==> CLICK HERE TO REPORT IT <== (https://forms.gle/DZ5wVzwELytC8KA46)
You must reschedule this game ASAP.


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.


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.)

Welcome to the 2024 WFLYSL Season

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.
