[CorvallisAYSO] High School Pickup Update
10/28/22 4:33 AM

Hi High School Families,

Our first pickup time is Saturday Nov 12th 10:30am - 12pm and Adams Area by the pickball courts.

If you have friends interested in coed pickup play, please have them signup in Sports Connect. The cost is $30 for the school year of pickup play, but I am not rushing to get those payments in (I only activate from the wait list to get you in the email list).

Again, this is intended to be recreational and casual play, this is not to coach you or run you, it is to let you have fun playing with peers... friends in a schoolyard style. This is built to scale, the more people we have, the more like a full soccer game we can make it. With low numbers on a Saturday, we will do a small field no keepers, with 20+ we will move to a larger field and potentially have a rotation of people goal keeping.

Details and Signup: https://www.corvallisayso.org/programs/19u.html

Current players signed up...


Thanks,
Luke Cotton - High School Pickup Coord.
Nicole Chapman - Adult Pickup Coord.

[CorvallisAYSO] Indoor Soccer Update
10/28/22 3:48 AM

Hi All Indoor Families,

Status Update:
1 : I am finalizing the schedule now and will get it loaded into Sports Connect as soon as I can.

2 : Some rosters are done, and have been sent through Sports Connect, but more work is still needed to get volunteers added... work in progress.

3 : Most divisions (except noted below) are going to be Hat Draw groups. Basically, where players show up, pick one buddy, and get split into two teams.

4 : Boys 3rd & 4th, 5th & 6th, and 7th & 8th divisions will have 4 teams in each division, these will be set recreational teams. We are taking a second look at the rosters to ensure we got all requests and have potential team managers on each team... work in progress.

5 : We have many openings for 1st graders, and some other divisions. You can see the openings here: Registration (ayso149.org). Wait List players are allowed in all divisions, and we will work those players in as we can.

Corvallis CoachCon 2022 (aka Pizza Party)
10/26/22 1:14 PM

Hey Coaches!

We've had a good batch of responses to the party notice.  This pizza party is going to be ... wow. 

Thursday, 11/3, 6pm, Papa's Pizza.

We have something like 170 coaches bringing the goodness to our kids each week.  It would be awesome to get at least a third of them at our end-of-season pizza party.  Not sure if you can make it?  Let us know that you are thinking about it - 25% likely? 60%? 100%  Let us know.

If you can't make it, let me say that you have done a good thing in spending this time with our kids this fall - helping them grow as young people, encouraging them, teaching them skills and teamwork.  It's a lot of work to coach well, and I can say that the results are in and the coaches of Corvallis AYSO have done well.

Kudos to Abe and all of the coach instructors who have nurtured and trained a great group of coaches.  We are striving to build within Corvallis AYSO, and within the Corvallis coaching community, a real and vital coach community founded on mutual respect, good communication, and the understanding that we are all on the same team with the common goal of helping our kids have fun and develop as soccer players and people.  Thanks for doing your part.

Coaches on 3!

Coach Team! Final games, and a few things
10/19/22 3:50 PM

Coaches!  What an honor to work with such a dedicated group.  Final games of the Fall season are upon us, and a much-earned break in the action (and chance to catch up on home projects).
 
Some of you will help with coaching indoor and futsal action over the winter.  Some will take their team to the area tournament.  We hope all of you will do the following:
 
1) Fall player evaluations.  When emails go out for fall player evaluations, please take the time to fill them out.  It makes a big difference for team formation. In general only 50% of coaches fill this out which does not help us balance teams. Please complete player eval's and help us balance teams.
2) Do some reflection.  What did you learn?  What worked well, and what didn't?  What do you need more training or support on?
3) Out of that reflection, please share anything that we, the Coach Admin and Instruction team, would benefit from.  Tips & hints, lessons learned, problem areas?
4) Join us at the end-of-season Coach Pizza Consumption event at 6pm on Thursday November 3rd.  We will have pizza, pitchers of soda, kudos, and prizes.  To that end, please shoot us a response with percent likelihood of attendance, and preferred pizza type. (eg 75%, Spinach and Sardine), and, if one comes to mind, a specific shout-out to one of the other coaches.
 
Recap: Player evals, reflection, feedback, RSVP for pizza on 11/3.
 
Much thanks, and Coaches on 3!
 
Abe & Dan

[CorvallisAYSO] High School Winter Pickup Play
10/14/22 6:39 PM

All High School Families,

Communications I thought were going out you all, were not. Here is an update...

Recap or new information...
We were not able to get enough players to run games for this fall and the volunteers needed to get things going were not able to help this fall.

Moving Forward...
The plan is to approach the division like our Adult pickup play group. For this winter I would like to schedule Saturday pickup soccer times for players to split up and do small-sided games. A volunteer will be present to help get things started, but after that, the players would manage most of the activity themselves, with the volunteer for backup if needed.

Your player registration for fall covers the membership/insurance for this idea, if new players want to just join for this winter, they would pay the $20 membership. Once we get to Spring, we will create teams and players will need to pay if they want to join a team. We would keep doing pickup play for High School in the spring.

Everyone getting this, your fall payment (usually $30 + membership $20) was applied to the spring game season. If you want a refund for the fall season and do not intend to join for spring games, please fill out this form (refund form).

Please email me your thoughts and ideas, should we try this, another idea?

Proposed Winter Pickup Schedule:
11/12/2022 - Noon-1:30pm - First Pickup Day @ Adams Area Fields - Meet by Pickleball Court
11/19/2022 - Noon-1:30pm @ Adams

Corvallis AYSO - Let's Go Team Coach!
10/12/22 10:51 AM

Our Coach Admin email this week originates from Coach Andrew Woogen, of the 9U Girls team, Retrievers.  (It’s been edited a bit, and sections highlighted, by Abe Drabkin)

From Coach Andrew:

First off, I feel incredibly lucky to be coaching my daughter. It’s cultivated a cool bond between me and both my daughters. I coached my older daughter last season and this season I am coaching my younger daughter.

I regularly communicate with the other coaches. But this past Saturday a big learning for me is that it is important to share with the other coach before the game starts what changes I’ll make if things become unbalanced. For example, if our team pulls ahead by a few goals then I’ll start layering on player development rules like:

*shots on goal from beyond the penalty area only

*shots on goal with non dominant foot only

*shots on goal by non dominant players only. Dominant players pass only.

*shots on goal only after X # of passes are completed in the attacking half

*loan out 1-2 dominant players. challenge them to score on their own defense. For each goal they score coach does 5 burpees at practice next week.

This way both coaches know and we can just flip a switch if/when needed and it won’t be so obvious and keep players from feeling awkward.

We have epic team spirit (see pic of our stuffed mascot Retriever and face tattoos attached to this email) and it seems counterintuitive to ask our players to not play their hardest. But now I look at lopsided game management as player development and I know my players want the opportunity to make the Coach do burpees: it’s like a bonus, play your hardest, gain a lead and then earn the opportunity to make the Coach do burpees!

One of our developing players has never played before: this is her first season. She is doing some soccer homework at home with her dad and brothers and has improved significantly. Last Saturday I finally put in in as keeper, as she’s been asking, and she performed well. Her dad came up to me after the game and gave me a huge High-5.

We have a very timid player as well. One exercise I recently ran was a “bump and run” drill to give all players familiarity with shoulder bumps, first walking and then running, while leaning into each other. The timid player actually liked this drill and by the end she did not want to stop and was basically doing jujitsu to the other players. Next up is an exercise to work on timidness with the ball: one step at a time with this team.

I hope all you other coaches are enjoying the natural ups and downs, lessons and challenges of the season like I am.

Remember it is all Us Coaches on Team Coach leading all 900-players.

Go Retrievers!

We cannot access field 132 through the construction area. You will need to access the field from Knollbrook or from the Adams gates to the west. Please review the attached map, and feel free to park on the street or at the church to the southwest.

Future games we will try to avoid using field 132.


NOTICE: OSU students are moving in on Saturday, I would check traffic before leaving and avoid OSU.

Thanks,

Good Work Coach Team!
9/16/22 8:43 AM

Coaches, thank you for getting practices started and successful first game day of the season last Saturday. We know that you are juggling your own kid's back to school, jobs and coaching duties. AYSO and the players thank you.

We have reviewed all game reports and thank you for submitting them: 99% are positive and we attribute that to your efforts to connect and communicate with your fellow coaches.  Well done and continue to introduce yourself and share info with your fellow coaches at practice and games.

Please continue to manage lopsided games by proactively communicating with the other coach and the referees. We heard numerous techniques including limiting attacks on goal to non-dominant foot, sharing players, increasing players on non-dominant team among others. This ensures all 900 players of recreational soccer  in Corvallis get the exercise, positive coaching and player development which AYSO wants to deliver.

Please reply to us if you'd like more coach support especially in practice session examples.

At your service, Abe and Dan

Please look to your email, we will be evaluating games and canceling (via Sports Connect) as appropriate. If your game starts at or is after 9:45am, we are likely good to go. As of writing, 5am, we are mid-yellow from the monitor at the EPA office in Corvallis and wind, 7mph, is from the north.

Welcome to the fall soccer season. This Saturday 9/10 will be your first game day of the season and below is the rundown of the information pertinent to the 15U division.

NOTICE: Your first game day will be at Adams School, but all other games could be at Corvallis, Keizer, Dallas, Lebanon, Albany, or Newport. Identify potential carpool options this week.

    • Field Setup: If your game starts at 8:15 or 8:30am, you are first on the field and need to setup the field. If you show up and the trash can with the correct field number is not by the field, you need to send someone to get the can of gear and setup the corner flags.
    • Field Takedown: If no other teams are trying to push you off the field and if your game ends around noon or 1pm, you are most likely last. The job is the easiest it has ever been, anything that is not a goal, net, or sandbag should be removed from the field and dropped off at the brown fields shed (again, leave the goals, nets, and sandbags on the fields, for all fields).

  5. We run a Kid Zone (conduct).
    No matter how intense the game can be, kids need cheerful support from the sidelines. Spectators are asked to adhere to the following guidelines:
    1. Kids are No. 1.
    2. Fun - not winning - is everything.
    3. Fans only cheer, and only coaches coach.
    4. No yelling in anger.
    5. Respect the volunteer (Adult & Youth) referees.
    6. No swearing or abusive behavior.
    7. No alcohol, tobacco or drugs.
    8. No weapons.
    9. Leave no trash behind.
    10. Set a proper example of sportsmanship.

  6. No Center Referee? If your game does not have a center referee, coaches are encouraged to lead the teams in a scrimmage (Signup To Referee). Without a referee you cannot have a game, but you can have a scrimmage like in practice. You can see if your game has a referee on the team dashboard (here).

  7. Game Day Rundown...
    1. Coaches will setup a spaced out area on the team side for the players to set gear/water.
    2. Players arrive with the proper attire. Read more about player equipment (here).
      • Wear uniform and dark shorts.
      • No Jewelry, not covered, not taped, again, No Jewelry.
      • If you wear a jacket, sweatshirt, or pants, avoid anything with hard plastic or metal.
      • Shin Guards, with team socks covering them. (soccer socks should cover the foot, then go on top of the shin guards)
    3. Coaches confirm player or team equipment. Missing something? Send a runner to the AYSO sheds.
    4. Home team will provide three pumped game balls, pumps can be found at the AYSO sheds.
    5. Coaches will confirm no team color conflicts. If same color, coin toss to see who wears pinnies.
    6. Coaches will equip the goalkeeper with a pinnie or jersey that does not match either team's main color.
    7. Referees can go to the referee shed (blue shed) to checkout an electronic whistle if desired (we also have regular whistles).
    8. Referees would do a field safety / setup check (corner flags set, look for golf balls or dangerous holes, you can send a parent to get fill sand/dirt from the brown shed).
    9. Referees should do a player equipment check (no jewelry, no watches, and socks covering shin guards).
    10. If you are missing Assistant Referees, Coaches will see if any helpers are willing to be club linespeople and assist the center referee. You can read more about this helper below.
    11. Half-time stoppage. (15U @ 35m half, if desired a 40m half is allowed)
      • 5min.
      • Check-in with volunteers to see if any changes are needed.
      • Teams switch sides of the field.
      • Kick-off from the same side (now has the opposite team on it).
    12. Avoid Blowouts: Let's ensure players & volunteers leaving the field, want to come back. Coaches, games with final scores like 0 to 6 are unacceptable for rec soccer, make adjustments, at least in the final quarter, to ensure a better balance, even if you can only get to something like 1 to 6. If you are a coach on the receiving end, and morale is not looking good, feel free to propose a forfeit, re-balance the teams, and try a new game/scrimmage with the pinnies provided. Coaches should make a reasonable effort to balance the game by trying the following...
      • Shuffle scoring players into non-scoring positions.
      • Non-dominant players allowed to shoot on goal. Dominant players pass only.
      • Loan a powerful player to the other team.
      • Shots on goal are limited to 1st touch by attacker. Team without advantage, add player(s) to the field.
    13. Teams need to wrap up by the scheduled end time and before the next team is scheduled to start.
    14. No snacks at half time or at the end of the game.
    15. Referees return electronic whistles to referee shed.
    16. Coaches return any excess equipment or uniforms to the AYSO sheds.
    17. Coaches can use the game report email sent each Saturday to report any issues or areas of confusion.
    18. Referees can use the game signup reminder sent each Saturday to report any issues or areas of confusion.

  8. Game Rules...
    1. Halves (15U=35min, if desired a 40m half is allowed)
    2. Substitutions are at allowed stoppages and quarters. Once a coach confirms with the referee they are allowed to sub a player, they can swap the player(s). This process should be quick, max 15sec. Substituting players should be located at the half line. This helps the referees see the players needing a swap at the next stoppage.
    3. The remaining rules follow the normal laws of the game (here).

  9. Help, Information, & Equipment: The Safety and Information Shed (Saturday 8am - 1pm) will have helpers and board members available for questions, equipment replacement, uniform swap, uniform order, etc.

  10. Club Linesperson like an Assistant Referee (could be used in any division, no training required, can be a spectator that is 12 years or older)
    1. The only responsibility of the club linesperson is to signal when the ball went over the touchline / sideline.
    2. Raise your arm only when the entire ball goes over the entire line.
    3. The Game Coach or Center Referee might ask for a discrete signaling with a thumbs up, thumbs down, or a direction, but you normally do not signal the following...
      • Do not give the direction of the throw-in(9U+) or kick-in(6U-7U).
      • Do not signal fouls
      • Do not signal when the ball goes in the goal.
      • Do not signal offside.

    6. Coaches will equip the goalkeeper with a pinnie that does not match either team's main color.
    7. Referees can go to the referee shed (blue shed) to checkout an electronic whistle if desired (we also have regular whistles).
    8. Referees should do a field safety / setup check (corner flags set, look for golf balls or dangerous holes, you can send a parent to get fill sand/dirt from the brown shed).
    9. Referees should do a player equipment check (no jewelry, no watches, and socks covering shin guards).
    10. If you are missing Assistant Referees, Coaches will see if any helpers are willing to be club linespeople and assist the center referee. You can read more about this helper below.
    11. Half-time stoppage. (13U @ 35m half)
      • 5min.
      • Check-in with coaches to see if any changes are needed.
      • Teams switch sides of the field.
      • Kick-off from the same side (now has the opposite team on it).
    12. Avoid Blowouts: Let's ensure players & volunteers leaving the field, want to come back. Coaches, games with final scores like 0 to 6 are unacceptable for rec soccer, make adjustments, at least in the final quarter, to ensure a better balance, even if you can only get to something like 1 to 6. If you are a coach on the receiving end, and morale is not looking good, feel free to propose a forfeit, re-balance the teams, and try a new game/scrimmage with the pinnies provided. Coaches should make a reasonable effort to balance the game by trying the following...
      • Shuffle scoring players into non-scoring positions.
      • Non-dominant players allowed to shoot on goal. Dominant players pass only.
      • Loan a powerful player to the other team.
      • Shots on goal are limited to 1st touch by attacker. Team without advantage, add player(s) to the field.
    13. Teams need to wrap up by the scheduled end time and before the next team is scheduled to start.
    14. No snacks at half time or at the end of the game.
    15. Referees return electronic whistles to referee shed.
    16. Coaches return any excess equipment or uniforms to the AYSO sheds.
    17. Coaches can use the game report email sent each Saturday to report any issues or areas of confusion.
    18. Referees can use the game signup reminder sent each Saturday to report any issues or areas of confusion.

  8. Game Rules...
    1. Halves (13U=35min)
    2. Substitutions are at allowed stoppages. Once a coach confirms with the referee they are allowed to sub a player, they can swap the player(s). This process should be quick, max 15sec. Substituting players should be located at the half line. This helps the referees see the players needing a swap at the next stoppage.
    3. The remaining rules follow the normal laws of the game (here).

  9. Help, Information, & Equipment: The Safety and Information Shed (Saturday 8am - 1pm) will have helpers and board members available for questions, equipment replacement, uniform swap, uniform order, etc.

  10. Club Linesperson like an Assistant Referee (could be used in any division, no training required, can be a spectator that is 12 years or older)
    1. The only responsibility of the club linesperson is to signal when the ball went over the touchline / sideline.
    2. Raise your arm only when the entire ball goes over the entire line.
    3. The Game Coach or Center Referee might ask for a discrete signaling with a thumbs up, thumbs down, or a direction, but you normally do not signal the following...
      • Do not give the direction of the throw-in(9U+) or kick-in(6U-7U).
      • Do not signal fouls
      • Do not signal when the ball goes in the goal.
      • Do not signal offside.

If they do not drop from the team in a few days and still no contact / no show, submit this form: https://www.corvallisayso.org/form/roster-change.html and we will drop the players (and hopefully fill the spot from the wait list).

Hello Head Coaches,

Please identify one person, or yourself, to come and pickup your team uniforms Saturday 9/3 8-10am or Monday 9/5 5-7pm. If you or a designate cannot get them Sat or Mon, you can get them on Sat 9/10.


Uniforms: Even if you are missing required volunteer registrations, please come and get the uniform pack for your team. If we did not already get information from you about a color preference, we choose your color already. Players added later or if the sizes are wrong, send them to the Safety Shed on Sat 9/10. NOTE: Your team name will remain in limbo until you get all the volunteers registered, as we will be using this to help identify what teams need volunteer help.


Team Names: If you want to change/set the team name, you need to do it Saturday at the uniform pickup. If you have the required volunteers registered, I will change it in Sports Connect on Saturday, if you do not, I will document the name and set it once you get all the required volunteers.


Extra Team Equipment: If you are missing pinnies, want more soccer balls (we have a ton of size 4), need cones, ask for that at the uniform pickup.


NOTE:
For teams that have all the volunteers registered and have the desired team name set in Sports Connect, this process will be an easy pickup of a bag, everyone else, please expect it to take 15-20 min.

 (Corvallis AYSO) Let's get you signed up, Coach! 
 8/09/22 11:56 PM 

Hello Corvallis AYSO Families!

Coach Administrator Dan Herford here.  Along with Abe Drabkin, our Director of Coach Training, I encourage you to consider joining our Corvallis AYSO coaching team.

*** Jump to the bottom to get THE DETAILS on how to get going on coaching ***

Our dedicated, enthusiastic, talented, and surprisingly witty coach administration and training team is here to help our volunteer coaches successfully deliver a high-quality soccer program to our AYSO kids.

Perhaps you, or someone you know - it could be a relative, or friend, or older sibling - is ready to jump onto the pitch to help your son or daughter have a fun experience learning and growing in the context of soccer.

We're looking for people who enjoy the game and enjoy helping kids reach their potential.  Soccer experience is great, but not required.  More important is a desire to learn and grow yourself, and a desire to help kids do the same.  

We'll provide training to equip you for the age level you are coaching, and when you become a coach with Corvallis AYSO, you will find yourself on a team with other coaches who are here to help all of the kids in the program be successful and have a good experience.

I'll be real - it takes a fair amount of time and dedication to do the job.  But, the reward is seeing the kids develop and grow, with a fun benefit of hearing 'Hey Coach!' when you run into a former player at the grocery store.

Right now the push is to get coaches trained.  Go to https://www.corvallisayso.org/coaches/training.html for information on the training requirements for each division.  

Much of the training is online - you'll want to get that started right away.  There is also local training - classroom training for 11U and above, and field training for all divisions.  The local training is happening later this month.  You'll want to get signed up as soon as possible at https://www.corvallisayso.org/coaches/training.html

Look over the info on the website, and then email us with any questions.  We'll also try to have someone from the coach team available at the team meetings happening this week to answer questions.

See you on the pitch!

Dan Herford
Coach Administrator

*** THE DETAILS ***

Coaches need to be/have:
1) Registered Volunteers (need to re-register every year)
2) Annual Concussion Training
3) AYSO Safe Haven Certification
4) SafeSport Training
5) Online Coach Training for your Division
6) In-person Classroom and/or Field Training for you Division

All of the links and detailed walk-throughs are found at https://www.corvallisayso.org/coaches/training.html

(Yes, it's a lot, but it gets easier after you get through it the first time.)

Dan

Per Player Scholarship?
You register/apply the same as everyone else, when asked about eligibility for a scholarship during registration, check yes if you are eligible. You should see a question... "My family and this player is approved for free and reduced meals, SNAP, or TANF. My family can provide proof when requested and authorize AYSO to verify my approval/enrollment. If I cannot provide proof when requested, I understand I will be charged the full player registration fee." after checking yes, your fee would be reduced and you can finish the application online.
