Team Manager Weekly Advice
Mon 9/9/2019 10:12 PM

Week 1 Done!

We all survived the first week of the season - Woohoo!! There was a lot of items in the team folders last week. Some of these items I was aware of before Saturday (I put them in the folders) and some items I learned about after the day was done. Several of you have had questions about the individual items. I am trying to get to each individual question as quick as I can. I do know that some teams did not get their picture forms as there were not enough last week, you should have your forms in your team folder this week. As far as your team's specific date and time, in the past that has come in an email from an AYSO board member. {Words of wisdom for new managers - pictures day is not that stressful. If your team can all get together in the picture area the photographers can usually fit you in if there is confusion on your day and time.}

It appears that the rain is here to stay! This can cause the fields to become muddy. AYSO procedure in the past has been that the Commissioner will post on the AYSO home page (https://www.corvallisayso.org) if the game fields are closed for the day. If the game fields are closed than there is no practice/game anywhere in the division (even if your team practices in a different field location) until the game fields are open again. So please check the AYSO home page daily by noon (usually updated by 10am) when the ground becomes more saturated. 

As always, don't hesitate to email your questions.

[CorvallisAYSO] REFEREES Opening Day 9/7
Sat 9/7/2019 6:00 AM

Howdy Referees,

Few quick reminders/notes for opening day today.

Practice > to > Scrimmage: The start time is a practice, for about 30min, or if agreed by everyone, less. The remainder can be a scrimmage, be cognizant of the start time for the next group, ensure you stop on time, no matter what.

Scrimmage!!!!, use that word, as I am asking you to help coach/teach players in the laws & rules for that division. Please take the time to educate players. Feel free to tell the coach that Luke sent a ton of emails at 4am, and asked you to focus on this part of player development for today. NOT A GAME >> Scrimmage = "a session in which teams practice by playing a simulated game."

9U Example: Well Timmy, this isn't basketball, since you smacked it with your hand in the opposing teams penalty area, it is the other teams ball, see the direction I'm pointing, it is the direction the other team is usually going. Okay keeper, you taking this? My other hand is pointing at the approximate area where you can place the ball for the kick. Timmy and team, move to the other side of the build out line, you can only enter this space after it goes over the line or is touched a second time by the keeper's team (this is specific to our region). Keeper, you can have a buddy close to you for the kick. Psssst, keeper, next time you don't need to wait for them to all go across the build out line to kick it, they are not allowed to play until they touch the build out line. Good to go keeper... (coach hollering weirdly specific and confusing directions)... you can kick it now... your buddy looks like a good option.
~Based on a real 10U/9U game, Luke


Game(scrimmage) Cards: Each team should supply you with an official lineup card, if they do not have them, they have not looked in the team folder at the brown shed. Finished cards, done by you, go in the box by the schedule board.

Referee Game(scrimmage)/Signup Schedule: On the blue shed to the north, is the referee schedule, please check it and mark that you are here next to your scrimmage(s). I bought some fancy Sharpies, please use them to fill openings and mark off your name.


AS ALWAYS, YOU HAVE SUPPORT
Find a referee in Blue, Green, or Red, they can help you with anything.

Chris Jordan Referee Admin.
In charge of all referees.
Vince Waterhous Director of Referee Instruction
Develops offerings to support the education of referees.
Joe McVeety Director of Referee Assessment

[CorvallisAYSO] Opening Day Today 9/7
Sat 9/7/2019 5:00 AM

Hello 6U-19U Families,

Remember, your planned start time is the start of your team practice for about 30min, the remainder is a friendly scrimmage (see details below). Since almost all players are going into a new playing format, much of today will be about rule/law/format changes/education for everyone. Saturday Starting Time/Schedule (here).


Quick Team Formation Notes

  • 7UB, if we get a few more players, we will be able to build a new team to replace the SELF team in the schedule.
  • 5U born 2015, & 7UG born 2013, have many openings, all are welcome to register (join).
  • 13U & High School also have openings (join).
  • Wait Lists (All boys teams, 9UG, 11UG, & 15UG): We are continuing to work on player placements and finding places for additional volunteers. This will continue up to September 14, after that day, we will close registration for core recreational. I expect us to have a handful of team changes after today.
  • You can always look at your team roster online (here), volunteers should be getting an expanded version by email.


Shoe & Soccer Equipment Sale/Swap TODAY

We have a bunch of uniforms and size 3 & 4 soccer balls that will be on sale today by the sheds.

When: Saturday from 8:15am - 1:00pm
Where: In front of concessions by the AYSO sheds
Deliveries: We will begin accepting shoes and equipment at 8:00 Sales will start at 8:15. Please collect unsold items or money by the end of the sale (1pm) or consider them a donation to AYSO. We cannot be responsible for returning equipment or cash.
AYSO will keep 50% of the total items sold as consignment for the scholarship fund. If you want to sell shoes or equipment, use this form (here). If you want to donate the items to AYSO, just give them to a helper at the sale. No preparation is necessary.


AYSO Saturday
Notes

  • Arrive early.
  • Carpool, Bike, or CTS Route 8.
  • No Dogs/Pets.
  • Player needs shin guards to participate.
  • No Jewelry (player equipment).
  • Do not park on the grass.
  • Our core recreational program is a Kid Zone (conduct) (see more details below).
  • Each field will have a spectator side and a team side.
    Generally, the spectator side is closest to the parking, with players & coaches on the other side.


Opening Day TODAY

This day is designed to help teams get started and help players understand the rules for the division. Here is a common rundown for most teams on Saturday.

  • All arrive 30-20min before your scheduled time.
  • Players stretch and warm up.
  • Parents & volunteers discuss any outstanding items.
    • Team Manager checks with non-volunteering parents on helper signups.
    • Coach communicates any additional expectations or needed help.
  • Team coaches will run 30min practice on half the field. Coach mentors will be moving around to help as needed.
  • Team referees will run 30min of scrimmage/game. Referee mentors will be moving around to help as needed.
  • Day closes with discussing any further items or upcoming events.


The Kids Zone Pledge
No matter how intense the game can be, kids need cheerful support from the sidelines. Spectators are asked to adhere to the following guidelines:

01. Kids are No. 1.
02. Fun - not winning - is everything.
03. Fans only cheer, and only coaches coach.
04. No yelling in anger.
05. Respect the volunteer (Adult & Youth) referees.
06. No swearing or abusive behavior.
07. No alcohol, tobacco or drugs.

09. Leave no trash behind.
10. Set a proper example of sportsmanship.


See you on the pitch!

[CorvallisAYSO] Soccer Law Changes - New This Season
Sat 9/7/2019 3:01 AM

Hello Coaches,

PLEASE READ:
This is an overly simplified breakdown of the law changes that we are implementing this season...

Dropped Ball: Basically, the dropped ball can be dropped to a single player. It should go to the team that last touched it, unless it is in the penalty box, then it goes to the keeper (they can pick it up). Other players must be about 4 yards away.

9U+ All Kicks in the Penalty Area: After the ball is kicked and moves it can be played, no longer need to be outside the penalty box to play it. The now defending/opposing team still needs to start outside the penalty area*.
*NOTE: In 9U the defending team needs to be on the other side of the build out line, but like it states above the keeper with the now attacking team can do the second touch of the ball within the penalty area. After the second touch the defending players can cross the build out line. Learn about the Build Out Line (here).

Handball: This has become even more convoluted, but basically IFAB is trying to to define the call a little further. The refinement focuses on instances where it hits a hand/arm and results in an overly fortuitous outcome (scores) or occurs from an unnatural position. So, it hits the hand/arm and goes in the goal or it hits the hand/arm while far away from the body. Both of those would be called, even if they were not deliberate. They add some pieces about when it should not be called, but basically if it is obviously not impacting anything and obviously not deliberate, it is not called.

9U+ Kickoff Choice: You win the toss, you can choose side or take kick-off.

13U+ Substitutes: Free Substitution (only 11 vs 11 games aka 13U+, all others do recorded quarterly subs) can have the leaving player leave the field from any point unless the ref says otherwise. Players that are going on the field, must still assemble at the half-line flag, again players going off can just leave the field from the point closest to them.

You can look at the attached PDF for a quick snip of the changes.

PDI and LotG changes
Thu 9/5/2019 8:43 PM

Referees,

Attached is a quick summary of the changes to the Laws of the Game that are most relevant for our AYSO youth rec soccer.

Please look this over, there are changes that you need to know and will have to implement in your first match on Saturday.  Oh, you don't have a first match on Saturday, well, perhaps by visiting https://www.corvallisayso.org/referees/schedule.html and choosing a match or two, you will have a time and a place to try out the new Laws!

Also, remember, we have our US Soccer Player Development Initiative modifications on younger age group matches.

9U
-Build out line. 
  -Offside only from the build out line forward
  -Restart for defending team or keeper distribution within the Build out area - attacking team backs up to the build out line.  Attacking team can't come back into build out area until after second touch by defending team (free kick / keeper throw, plus another touch).

-Keeper.
  -No keeper punting, throws only.

-All players
  -No deliberate heading of the ball
  -No slide tackles

11U

[CorvallisAYSO] Field Lining Help
Wed 9/4/2019 4:01 PM

Hello Field Helpers,

We are behind on the first field lines, and I am looking for some help in the next few days.

The task is to string and paint the first field lines. The GPS dots are down, we just need to connect the dots. The thought is to split this up by field, please email me if you have some time and are comfortable with stringing and painting lines Thursday or Friday this week.

Fields Missing Some or All Lines:

  • 111
  • 093
  • 112
  • 061
  • 051
  • 113
  • 132
  • 071

Reply back with a field where you can help, I will send you a confirmation. You can finish the task any time in the next few days if you have done this work before, if not, I will be at the fields from 6-7pm (Th & F), and can help you get started. (I will likely be working on a few issues on field 132.)

Thanks,
Luke Cotton - Acting Fields Coordinator

Hi Team Managers & Head Coaches,

Sorry about this being last minute, but we will be available at the sheds today (9/4) for uniform pack pickups from 6:15pm-6:45pm. If you have not picked up uniforms yet, and are just missing one volunteer or have all volunteers set, please send someone to this event. If you cannot make it today, you can come to the events Friday, 9/6, 6pm or All Saturday @ Adams School AYSO Sheds.

 and so it begins
Wed 9/4/2019 10:54 AM

 Region 149 Referees,

And so it begins!  The Fall Season!  Of me pestering you to signup for matches!

Our first day, Slow Start Saturday, is in 3 days.  There are many opportunities yet to be realized remaining on the schedule.

As we did last year for the first Saturday, for each time slot the teams will use the first 1/2 to organize, practice, hand out uniforms, and the 2nd 1/2 will be a full field match.  These matches will be a great opportunity for new referees to get some on-field experience and mentoring.  We will rotate officials, do additional instruction as needed, and give everyone a chance to try different roles or levels of play.

Use this opportunity to practice signing up for matches!.

The new signup system is located on the region webpage under Referees (button in the top nav bar) Game Signup (hover over the Referees button).  The direct link to the page is - https://www.corvallisayso.org/referees/schedule.html - bookmark now to save time.

Thank you,

Chris

[CorvallisAYSO] Manager Introduction
Mon 9/2/2019 6:32 PM

Hello Team Managers,

I am Nicole this year's Manager Admin, just another way of saying the Chief Manager. It is now September and time for the fall soccer season to start. I want to thank all of you for volunteering for this very important role. You are the one that keeps your team organized and communications clear between your team's parents and myself.

We have a few house keeping things to cover. I am hopeful that by now you have introduced yourself to your team as the manager. You should have an agreed upon mode of communication for your team set up so you can forward information weekly. The season can seem to move along quickly so if you have any questions or issue please don't wait to contact me. If I do not have an answer for you I will find someone who can provide an answer.

1. Team schedules have been posted. As I understand there may be more corrections to the schedule as some team divisions have conflicts. You can find the schedule here https://www.corvallisayso.org/teams/schedule.html  I recommend sending your team specific schedule to your parents separately along with the link.

2. Please encourage you parents to sign up to help with game day here https://www.corvallisayso.org/teams/helper-signup.html  These positions are easy (only a couple of hours) but important - shoe swap, safety shed and concessions. The money from the shoe swap and concessions goes to fund the AYSO scholarship. There is even a job description on the web-page so parents can know what they are signing up for. It is suggested that each family does 2 or more shifts per season.

It is acceptable to remind more resistant parents that AYSO is a volunteer run organization and that they agreed to help when signing their child up for the season.

I am confident it will be a great season and hoping for great weather!!

Until next week,

Nicole Belyeu
Manager Admin.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Signup for matches this Fall
Sun 9/1/2019 12:27 PM

Referees,

The Fall Season is here!

The first match day is 9/7, next Saturday.

As we did last year for the first Saturday, for each time slot teams will use the first 1/2 to organize, practice, hand out uniforms, and the 2nd 1/2 will be a full field match.  These matches will be a great opportunity for new referees to get some on-field experience and mentoring.  We will rotate officials, do additional instruction as needed, and give everyone a chance to try different roles or of levels of play.  The second week of the season we will start regular matches with a ref team set for each full length match.

Signing up for matches is different from last Spring.

You choose your match (date, time, level, position), you will not be assigned.

The new signup system is located on the region webpage under Referees (button in the top nav bar) Game Signup (hover over the Referees button).  The direct link to the page is - https://www.corvallisayso.org/referees/schedule.html - book mark now to save time.

When you first land on this page, you will see "upcoming open shifts", which is just the next match weekend.  If you want to see the full schedule, hit the "All Shifts" button.  If you want to search for a team or age group, use the two filter options in the "search referee schedule" box.

When you have the view of the schedule you want, look on the far right of each row - if there is already a referee at that match/position, their name (first, last initial) will show, if there is a refereeing opportunity available, it will show "OPEN".  Click on the "OPEN" you want and you will be directed to a signup page.  Enter your first, last, email, phone, and if you are a volunteer for a team, pick the team from the list in the team name box, hit submit.  You will get confirmation emails that remind you of your assignment and any missing training / certifications that you need to take care of before hitting the field.

Please use your name as spelled in your AYSO registration, this way we can easily cross reference your sign up in case there are any questions.

The system is brand new, so we'll be tweaking it as we go, but testing so far has gone well, so we are confident that everyone will like this new approach more than the clunky software we used in the past.

So, now you know the plan and how to follow through on your commitment to be a AYSO volunteer, sign up, sign up for many matches, sign up all at the same time.  I dare you to try and break Luke's new toy!

Thank you for volunteering, looking forward to seeing everyone out on the fields at Adams.

Chris

[CorvallisAYSO] Fall Game Schedule Posted
Sat 8/31/2019 6:16 AM

Hello All AYSO Parents & Volunteers 6U-18U,

Game Schedule Online - We have posted revision 3 of the game schedule in Blue Sombrero (here) & on the region website (here). Please review your game schedule carefully. Due to the complexity of game schedule, it is usually impossible to accommodate change requests. However, errors will be corrected whenever possible. You can find the fields map (here).

Below are the notable items for the schedule:

  1. Opening Day on 9/7 is a unique schedule where the start time indicated is the start of your team practice on half of the field, the last 30min is intended to be your scrimmage/game time. Most teams have a 30min practice, then a 30min game (15U can have a 45min practice to allow for coach mentoring).
  2. 13U, 15U, & 18U some teams could be doubled up on Saturday, please be sure you look to see if you are playing two games on one day.
  3. 15U & 18U teams travel, see the fields map to translate the code to the address/location.
  4. 6U & 7U has a team called SELF, for now that is where a team would be playing themselves for a game.
  5. Some of the complexity in the schedule comes from head coaches running multiple teams, while we try to reduce overlaps, cramming 42 games in 6 hours, we will still have some.
  6. Games must start on time! If your game starts late, the referee may need to shorten your match to prevent conflict with the next scheduled game.
  7. Game Day field setup or take down assignments fall to the teams that are either first or last on that field that Saturday.
  8. Always plan to arrive 30min before your match, keep in mind that parking and other factors could delay your arrival.
  9. Referees: 6U & 7U each team is expected to provide a coach for one of the two fields.
  10. Referees: 9U the schedule for referee signups for 9U+ is online (here). You will notice that 9U games only have signups for 9U center referees. Each game will need the additional 2 referees / lines people, but the center referee is required to signup for a 9U game. Many teams are short referees, we need people to help center the games.
  11. Referees: 11U-15U the schedule for referee signups is online (here).

Signups for Game Day Helpers - If you are not a team volunteer, you are a Game Day Helper for your team, and each family is asked to step up. The signup slots for game day helpers is online (here). We have signups for Shoe Swap Equipment Sale helpers, Opening helpers, Closing helpers, Concession Sale helpers, & Safety/Information helpers.

Signups for Field Helpers
- We ask that each team have a helper for fields and field related work. Along with helping to setup if you are first, or take down if you are last, we ask that you signup (here) for one or more field work tasks.

Saturday Shoe Swap
/ Equipment Sale - Bring your old sports equipment to sell, donate, or swap. Shoe and equipment swap event this Saturday, Sept 7 from 8:15am - 1:00pm in front of concessions. It is simple: Fill out the form beforehand (here), write your name and the price for each item on a piece of masking tape and attach it to the item, and bring the items to the event. AYSO will keep 50% of the total items sold as consignment for the scholarship fund. No forms are required if donating items.

Uniforms - Saturday 9/7 is the best day for confirming uniforms (@ AYSO Info Shed) or submit special ordering (here). We will have folks at the information shed helping to handout uniforms, recording needed uniforms, or providing replacement equipment to teams. If you are missing a team volunteer, we will have board members available to help sort out issues.

See You Saturday 9/7,
Luke Cotton - Region Commissioner

[CorvallisAYSO] Uniforms & Volunteer Certifications
Tue 8/27/2019 5:16 PM

Hello Registered Coaches, Referees, & Managers,

I have been debating if this will cause more confusion or less, hopefully not. Attached is a CSV with all registered volunteers and current (8/27 3pm) training/certification statuses according to the Region & AYSOU systems.

Questions about the spreadsheet?
Contact your admin (here) if you cannot make/complete a training.
Contact me (here) if you are missing a training you took.

Notes:
+Keep in mind that if you took a training this year, you need to have all parts completed before I manually apply the certification.
+MY = Membership Year = Starting Year of the School Year
+Not placed with team? The reasons vary as to why it can take longer, but please double check the Volunteers page (here) in Blue Sombrero to see what might be needed.
+Contact your division coordinator (here) if you need to make a volunteer allocation change or use this form (here).

 

Uniforms & Team Worksheet

If you see everyone for your team is registered in the attached spreadsheet, you can send someone(coach or team manager) with the completed team worksheet to pickup your uniform pack.

Team Uniform Pack Pickup
Tuesday, August 27, 2019 from 06:00pm to 07:15pm at Adams School AYSO Sheds
Wednesday, August 28, 2019 from 06:00pm to 06:30pm at Adams School AYSO Sheds
Friday, September 06, 2019 from 06:00pm to 06:30pm at Adams School AYSO Sheds

Final pickup day is on opening day, if you have been unable to get all volunteers before then, that will be the day you can pickup uniforms and talk with me about how you are filling any team voids.

AYSO Volunteer Training

  1. Register in Blue Sombrero (here) (adult guide) (youth guide)

  2. Complete AYSO's Safe Haven Training Online at AYSOU. (Should show a green progress circle.)
    (only need to complete this once)

  3. Complete Concussion Training Online at AYSOU. (Will continue to show a grey circle.)
    (every school year)

  4. Complete job training from an instructor, you can signup for the class (here).

AYSOU Online Training Advice
  • You need to have completed your volunteer registration before you can login for training.
  • AYSOU.org is a national online training tool where you login with your Blue Sombrero account.
  • Each volunteer needs an independent account to do training (including youth). Confirm your AYSO ID (shown at the top of AYSOU) with your AYSO ID on your volunteer registration (Blue Sombrero volunteer page here) to ensure you are taking your training.
  • KEEP A COPY of your certification (print or screen photo of the last part).
  • DO NOT use your smart phone for anything AYSO registration or training related.

  • Avoid taking trainings during peak hours or plan for slow loading times.
  • Consider using the Firefox web browser for the trainings.

Referee with AYSO this year?
8/21/19 12:22 PM

Hello AYSO Region 149 Referees (from last Spring...)

This is the first and last time that I will email all of you from the list of last year's referees. 

If you don't want to hear from me again, do nothing but ignore this email.

If you do want to hear from me again about being a referee with R149 AYSO this year, read on!

We have ditched Horizon Web Ref as our scheduling software (yeah!  One less bit of awkward, expensive software in your life).
We have built our own scheduling web app that you'll learn to love as soon as you dive in.
But, first you have to register in Blue Sombrero as a volunteer, get your concussion awareness training done again, and then you'll show up in the system for me to send you near daily reminders of your commitment to youth soccer in Benton County.

So, if you are already registered for this upcoming season, thank you.  If not, do so or you won't be able to request matches.

I'll be sending out some LotG reminder material and some information on the changes (big-ish) that we will be seeing this year.

Plan on attending the Ref Refresher Friday September 6th, 18.00 - 21.00h.  Western View Center (at Adams).

First match day with be Saturday 9/7 - same as last Fall, each time slot will be split between practice and the practice match.  Good warm up for the official beginning of the season on 9/14.

Thank you for volunteering with AYSO!

Chris

[CorvallisAYSO] Team Meeting Today 8/20 7pm @ Adams School
Tue 8/20/2019 7:31 AM

To all 09U parents,
About your team meeting today 8/20 7:00pm @ Adams School Soccer Fields...

The team meeting will cover the following items:

  • Opening Day Saturday 9/7.
  • Wait list, placements, 5U(DOB 2015), 6U(DOB 2014), & 7UG(DOB 2013) openings.
  • Typical game days and parent expectations.
  • Team equipment handout (balls, cones, & pinnies).
  • Potential practice locations and practice expectations.
  • Team snack expectations.
  • Team jobs and team worksheet (here) needed to get the uniform packet.

NOTICE: No Computers will be available at this event, you need to finish the volunteer registration ahead of the meeting or plan to get it done soon after.

 

Team Worksheet

This worksheet (here) must have all required positions filled out and all volunteers must be registered in the division & role before you can pickup your team uniform packet. Most teams will not have everything done, so we will have a uniform packet pickup on 8/26, 8/27, 8/28, & 9/6 at 6pm to turn in the completed sheet and get the uniform packet.

Notes:
+You can have multiple people in each role, like co-coaches.
+Head Coaches cannot serve as a Referee or an Assistant Coach for the team.
+Team volunteers can fill multiple roles, but must be registered in that role.
+Referee 1 and Referee 2 must be separate individuals.

Team Uniforms & Equipment

The team worksheet is required to get the uniform pack, we will take the original of the form, and you can keep a copy.

Note: this year we will be handing out the number of uniforms for the number of players on the team, and keeping the surplus. Added players can get the uniforms at the AYSO sheds on game day or a uniform pickup day. You can use the equipment request form (here) for special orders or to schedule a pickup.

Team equipment will be provide to the team volunteers at the meeting. This equipment is for the team, and is often held by the head coach. It will include some size 4 soccer balls, cones, ball bag, and pinnies. Pinnies need to be returned at the end of the school year, and we ask for all of the other items back so we can reuse the equipment.

Frequent Team Meeting Questions

I am not able to make the team meeting, what should I do?
If you are able to volunteer or know someone who can fill a spot, email others on the team. The prior email to teams included all emails for the team (check your spam if you do not see it).

My kid is not assigned a team yet, should I come?
Yes, team meetings are the best times to get questions answered and potentially get placed on a team.

Can I bring my kids?
Yes, but this meeting will be for parents to sort out team details (we will have a play area to the side).

Where and when can the team practice?
Full details are on this page (here), but here is the quick version. You can practice twice a week for an hour & a half, the coaches choose the time and place that could be a school or a park. You should reserve the practice location for a 509j school, for city parks & Philomath, it is often first come first serve.

How do I know if a volunteer completed registration?
We will confirm if all the volunteers are registered at the meeting and will have a list for checking. If they are not, have them show up and we can do the registration on site (at any team meeting time). Volunteers allocated to the team are registered.

What if we don’t have all the volunteers registered?
You will need to come at a uniform pickup event either 8/26, 8/27, 8/28, & 9/6 at 6PM or 9/7 8am-2pm @ Adams School Sheds.

What if we are missing volunteers?
Confirm what positions you are missing, and work on recruiting. Your team will need coaches, referees, and a manager. Youth, college students, grandparents, friends, and family could all be volunteers. Some common scenarios, co-head coaches, volunteer parents that have their volunteer high schooler run practices/games, youth referees, referees also being team manager, etc. We provide training for all volunteer positions. Without these volunteers, your team could be disbanded or dissolved, we will do everything we can to help, but at the end of the day, we are powered by volunteers.

See you at 7pm today,
Luke Cotton - Region Commissioner

[CorvallisAYSO] Region Updates
Sat 6/22/2019 5:31 PM

Hello AYSO Region 149 Families,

Here is an update on registration, summer camps, EXTRA, 5-A-Side survey, volunteer training, and anticipated school year calendar.

Open Registration Closes This Weekend: Remember to get your registration done online (here), and to confirm your friends have got it done. After this weekend, special requests also close, so get those in (here). We will have a limited registration to fill gaps in August, during limited registration placement is not guaranteed and most special requests would only be considered for head coaches and referees willing to center.

Helper & Volunteer Signups: I will be sending out confirmation emails to volunteers and helpers next week to confirm we have the right data, if you do not see an email, indicate interest (here).

Registered Players: I will send an email to newly registered players to confirm player details next week, all others that registered in May, should have received an email already, if not, check your junk mail, I always include CorvallisAYSO in the subject line.


Summer Camps: First Camp starts on Monday; a few spots are open, register (here). The other camps starting on July 22 and August 12, you can register (here). NOTE: during the camp week, they offer clinics. The goalkeeper and goalscorer clinics are Thursday 5-7pm of the camp week. Go to the registration site, click on a camp, and select additional programs.


AYSO EXTRA: Formation is done and training sessions are going on now over summer. Placed/Expected players will have registration open in July. If you are interested in EXTRA, there might be an opportunity as a practice player or to join for a summer pickup game, contact the coordinator (Boys EXTRA) - (Girls EXTRA).


5-A-Side Survey: If you or your player participated in spring 5-A-Side, I would like your feedback (here). What did you think of the event, the format, match ups, etc. Other ideas?


Volunteers: You will learn about team placements in early August, some of you could be earlier as you might be asked to help with formation. We are short division coordinators for 9UB & 11UG, can you help (here)?

Coach Volunteers: Most of you will be moving to a new division. All will still have a classroom part and a field part to training. All coaches should expect to attend a division related field/practical training in late August, we will offer a few days/evenings, but they can be 2-3 hours. Lower divisions (6U-11U) we will have most of what was in the classroom, available online. Upper divisions (13U+) will have most of the classroom training, online, but still have a short classroom training/collaboration. Additional coach refresher or specialized coach trainings might be offered, so keep an eye out for those (How to train a Goalkeeper, Formation & Tactics, Evaluation & Focused Training, etc.). If you are interested in helping run a training or clinic, contact Dan (here).

Referee Volunteers: Some big items are changing in the LOTG and returning referees should expect to come to a refresher class to get the finer details and examples. Much of the new referee training is moving to a field/practical focus, with more of the classroom items being online. We are also looking at simplifying the process for getting further training and working to clear up confusion about what you need to get the next level of certification. If you are interested in helping run or take a training, contact Chris (here).

Team Manager Volunteers: We will continue to have in person trainings for new managers. I am also looking to expand a resources catalog to help you with various tasks, so be on the lookout for that.


Region Calendar: You can see the region calendar online (here). You can also add the calendar to Google or another WebCal tool (here).
-- Next Week: Start on Fall Team Formation, we could use help w/ 7UB, 9UB, & 11UG formation (here).
-- June 24: Add-On Summer Camp 1 Starts.

[CorvallisAYSO] EXTRA Boys Formation Event 6/14 @ 6pm
Wed 6/5/2019 11:45 AM

Hey AYSO Families,

Is your son wanting to play more soccer? If so, the Corvallis AYSO Region 149 EXTRA program is the perfect opportunity! The program is designed for kids to play a slightly more competitive level of soccer with their peers/classmates. EXTRA can offer year round scrimmages, summer practices, advanced training sessions, and/or league games versus teams outside Corvallis.

Everyone going into 2nd-8th grade is eligible to attend our formation event (Tryouts), which will take place Friday June 14 from 6-8pm at Adams. We will meet at the main sheds and break into groups. Please arrive on time with completed attached registration form. We will form Boys U-12 and U-14 teams using their 2019/20 age/grade level.

Volunteers: Teams are required to have volunteers that meet AYSO guidelines, a Coach, Assistant Coach, Referee, and Team Manager/Team Treasurer before they can be formed.

Fees: The cost to participate on an EXTRA league team would be $150 per player which includes practices, full jersey set, field use fee, membership fee, and both Fall and Spring league fee. Costs to participate as a practice player or substitute player can vary.

Structure: The focus of the EXTRA teams will be Fall and Spring league play versus teams outside the Corvallis area. Each season this is typically 4 home and 4 away games (Eugene, Salem, Albany).

Requirements: All EXTRA players are required to also take part in the Region's Core Program. Those not currently registered with AYSO can attend tryouts and be placed on a team but must register for Core prior to participating with their EXTRA team. Please note, this formation event is for Boys EXTRA teams only. If your son cannot attend the event please notify the Boys EXTRA Coordinator in advance.

For more information reply to this email.

EXTRA needs a coordinator to help for the upcoming year, fill out a board application (here) if you are interested.

Host a Coach

We are also looking for host families for the camp week. Host families benefit by learning about the British way of life and its cultural differences, whilst enhancing their soccer education. The differences of our language and backgrounds, combined with the love of soccer, ensure a memorable stay and long lasting friendships for everyone. Each host family will receive 1 free half day scholarship to the camp for each coach they host.

Here is a little more information regarding hosting...

What do you receive?
-- Camp scholarship! (free place on camp)
-- UK Goodies, including shirts & balls.

-- A very fun, educational and rewarding experience for your children! 

Key points:
-- UK coaches work in the mornings and some weekends.
-- There is no expectation to entertain the coaches - you'll find the coaches quite entertaining themselves!

-- They will have their own rental car transportation, therefore transportation is not required.
-- UK coaches are professionally qualified coaches, experienced in working with children and with multiple background checks.

-- Hosting lasts one week, and is during the week of Camp.

Expectations:
-- Suitable sleeping arrangements - coaches cannot share rooms with family members.
-- Some family meals if appropriate - you can set your own rules with regard to mealtimes.

-- Access to laundry and showering facilities.
-- Any house rules or routines that you wish the coach to adhere to.

Thanks,
Luke Cotton - Region Commissioner

[CorvallisAYSO] Fall 2019 Registration

Hello |User First Name|,

We have extended the player open registration time through Mid-June for next school year. Most of the divisions will consist of the same players you played with in Spring 2019.

Register Now (here)

If you already registered, you should have received another email with the expected season timeline. All emails sent, are recorded (here).

Why should I register now?
-- Special Requests: If you played in 10U, next year you are likely in 11U, and most of the players will be the same kids you saw in 10U. If your player was not suited for that division, developmentally they were not ready or they smoked past other players, right now you can make the request to potentially get special placement or play up a division.
-- Team Balance: We work to find a balance, adding in factors like outside sports, years of soccer, and coach evaluations. The more time a division coordinator has to work on these items, the better the games and teams will be.
-- Uniform Ordering: Late uniform and special uniform orders cost us more. We are making some adjustments this upcoming year to reduce that cost, but when you add 300 players in two weeks, it gets tough to keep that cost down and ensure timely delivery.
-- Refunds: For those that register now, if you discover in August that another activity is preferred, you can get a refund of $68 (here). The membership cost of $20 & the processing fee $2 is not refundable. If you are placed during late registration, in most cases, you are out the full cost.

What if we reconsider in August?
At Limited Registration times, you get what is available. We will work with volunteers to try and accommodate requests, but everyone else is first come first serve and luck of the draw. Sometimes we can build new teams, but they are often an assortment of players from all around the city. For early registrants, we work hard to get you placed in your primary practice zones, if we have enough and the balance is right, we sometimes can build teams by schools.

Thanks,
Luke Cotton - Region Commissioner
