RESCHEDULING - Games will not be rescheduled unless the game is called by a Referee due to hazardous conditions.
STANDINGS are determined:
Firstly at points (determined by the Win/Loss/Tie record).
If there's a tie, then it goes to the result of the head-to-head game.
If still tied, then it goes to goal differential (max 3 goals per game).
If still tied, then it goes to goals for.
FORFEITS - in the event of a forfeit, the score will be recorded as a 3-0 win for the other team.
ABSENT OR MISSING REF PROCEDURE - Due to the shortage of fields and officials, games will not be rescheduled due to the absence of a referee. If no referee is available for a game, the coaches of the teams must agree to appoint someone to officiate that game. ALL GAMES MUST START ON TIME.
GAME SHEETS / REPORTING SCORES for U14-U18: Game sheets are provided by the first team listed on the schedule for all games including pre-season. They are responsible for CLEARLY and FULLY completing the top of the game sheet (date, game number, time etc) and their team information (full first and last names and jersey number) and giving it to the opposition with enough time for them to fully complete their team information and present it to the Referee before the start of the game. The Columns marked "Y/R", "ID Card", the sections for the final scores and the Misconduct Summary section are all for Referee Use Only.
Upon completion of the game, the Referee will record the score and any misconducts and then each coach needs to sign the game sheet confirming everything. The Referee is then responsible for turning in the game sheet to the COYSA office by dropping it off or by email. The score on the game sheet is the one used to update standings on the website.
Both teams are to email the score within 24 hours of the end of the game, putting the game number in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org
PLAYER PICK UPS: If your U14-18 team is going to be short, you may pick up players from the age group below as per the Guidelines. If this still doesn't work, we encourage coaches to do what they can so the players that ARE available and show up still have the opportunity to play, even if it's a modified form of a game. The minimum number of players required to start at a game is 7. Click HERE for Player Pickup Guidelines.
THE BASIC COMPULSORY EQUIPMENT of a player is mandated by FIFA Law#4 and comprises the following separate items: A jersey, shorts, soccer socks, shin guards and cleats.
