Updated 7/26/20

Fall Season Plan v4

Disclaimers: Like most things today, this is subject to change. We are still working on adjustments to incorporate state changes started on 7/24 and will update the plan when further clarifications are provided. We are structuring the fall season to be dynamic allowing us to adjust quickly when needed; adjustment is inevitable.

Season Start: Practices Could Start 8/31, First Opening Game/Activity Day 9/12, Last Game/Activity Day 10/24, & Makeup / Added Game/Activity Day 10/31.

Team Formation: Teams will be formed based on zones/schools. It is important that we get a head coach and an assistant for each team, as both volunteers will be critical to help maintain the added player protection policies. No team size changes are expected, we will be creating teams / activity groups the same size as we did last year (Region Rules).

Face Masks: All persons within 24ft of AYSO activities must wear a mask, face shield, or face covering, when not actively participating in the sport. Outside of playing, face coverings are required if a 6ft distance cannot be guaranteed, for example near parking areas or other areas of likely congestion. 7/24 Note: Additional modifications are expected as we work to create activities and rules to maintain 6ft distances during play.

Player Drop Off: A parent, guardian, or person bringing the player to the activity must attest to a team volunteer, before joining the activity, to a players capacity to participate and confirm the player does not have and/or had not had that day: a fever of 100.4°F or greater, a new cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, odd chills, odd muscle pain/aches, a sore throat, a headache, fatigue, odd congestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and a new loss of taste or smell. If you or a family member or player is sick, DO NOT COME TO THE ACTIVITY.

Canceled Items: Concessions will be closed, Safety/Info Shed will be run most of a game day by Board Members, No team picture day, and No preseason large group meeting.

Food & Water: There will be no food, snacks, or eating allowed within 24ft of an AYSO activity. Each player shall bring their own water; drinks are not to be shared.

Cleaning: Hand washing or use of hand sanitizer will be encouraged before and after activities. You will need to supply your own hand sanitizer and bring it to all AYSO activities. It is recommended that you clean your ball and other equipment after each activity session.

Distance: Only one family spectator space is allowed near the activity area per player and can only consist of three or fewer members of the same immediate family. Any person, at risk for severe illness or with serious underlying medical conditions should not attend games or practices. All persons shall leave the property as soon as possible after the end of the activity. Spectators must be 18ft away from teams and team areas, allowing team members & volunteers to distance when needed.

Season Changes & Refunds: If at any time the Governor of Oregon, Oregon Health Authority (OHA), Corvallis School District (509J), or the Benton County Health Department determines that a change is needed, like moving to phase one or additional restrictions, the season could be adjusted or terminated. Since 90% of the expenses occur before the season starts, no refunds would be issued if the season were terminated after the first game. Your payment includes the fall & spring seasons for this school year, we will try again later in fall or expect to continue in spring. Refund Request Form (here).

Equipment: We will offer a checkout ball to each player to hold and use for the entire season. Players will need to bring their own ball to each practice; coaches cannot hold this equipment for you. Players will need to bring their checked out pinnie(s) to each game and practice...

  • 5U: Players will be provided a ball, socks, and a shirt to keep. Players will also be issued a checkout pinnie, to be returned at the end of the season.
  • 6U & 7U: Players will be provided socks and a jersey to keep. Players will also be issued a checkout pinnie, to be returned at the end of the season.
  • 9U & 11U: Players will be provided socks to keep and a checkout reversible pinnie, to be returned at the end of the season.
  • 13U & 15U: Players will be provided socks to keep and two checkout pinnies, to be returned at the end of the season.
  • 19U: Players will be provided socks to keep, and can purchase a reversible jersey if they do not have one. (19U has a different payment structure, more of an a la cart)


Season Payment: Regular (non-scholarship) players will see a discount of $10 for fall. For 9U+ divisions, if spring looks good, you could be asked for the $10 to buy a team jersey for spring.

AYSO EXTRA: Still expecting to have an EXTRA program. No leagues are for certain. Pickup games with other area programs/teams are likely. Practices would start in September. More later.

AYSO EXTRA: Still expecting to have an EXTRA program. No leagues are for certain. Pickup games with other area programs/teams are likely. Practices would start in September. More later.



Below are main the modifications to the norm, these have undergone many changes, and some pieces are vague for now...

Note: 24ft = length of a full size soccer goal.

Game Day Modifications v6
#1> All persons within 24ft of AYSO activities must wear a mask, face shield, or face covering, when not actively participating in the sport. Outside of playing, face coverings are required if a 6ft distance cannot be maintained, for example near parking areas or other areas of likely congestion. If you or a family member or player is sick DO NOT COME TO THE ACTIVITY.
#2> Willful violators of these player protection policies could be banned from the property for the day and could incur further action per the property owners policies &/or AYSO's policies.

A> All divisions will do free flowing substitutions; player must be off the field before the new player can go on. Coaches will be asked to only yell to call players and use the free flowing sub opportunities to provide distanced instruction when needed.
B> No throw-ins will be used, all will do kick-ins (indirect free kicks), opponent distance required would vary.
C> No handshakes, touching should be limited.
D> Face coverings required for everyone when not playing and 6ft cannot be maintained. 7/24 Note: Additional modifications are expected as we work to create situations where distance can be maintained during play (no offside, keeper zone, player lanes, defensive bubble, etc.).
E> Coaches required to use face coverings. Yelling should be kept only to substitutions and should only be done when all others are 10ft away.
F> Spectators must keep 6ft distance between family units. Face coverings are required for all persons within 24ft of the field, individuals unable to follow this, must be 24ft away from the field.
G> Spectators and non-team members, must be 18ft away from team areas and should never go near the team.
H> Home team should provide three clean and pumped game balls to the referee.
I> Referees & players are not required to wear coverings while in game. Referees, we will have electronic whistles available if desired. Again, waiting on state clarifications from the 7/24 changes
J> No food, snack, or eating allowed within 24ft of a soccer field.
K> Red field paint will be used to denote distances or boundaries, like the game area & team area (a 7ft red boundary will be added parallel to each touchline).
L> Home team will wear red or orange color (excludes 5U-7U).
M> Port-a-pots are sanitized before the start of the game day.
N> A parent, guardian, or person bringing the player to the activity must attest, before joining the activity, to a players capacity to participate and confirm the player does not have and/or had not had that day: a fever of 100.4°F or greater, a new cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, odd chills, odd muscle pain/aches, a sore throat, a headache, fatigue, odd congestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and a new loss of taste or smell.
O> Coaches must record attendance and check off item N with the parent each day.
P> Each player must have a completed Program Payment/Waiver Form and Player Release Form. ! You will be sent a custom link for both later !
Q> 3 Up Rule: Teams that are down 3 points, should add a player (from their team or the other team), and then remove the player when they back to being down 2 points.
R> 5 Up Rule: Coaches will immediately shuffle multiple players to attain a better balance and allow all players to play at their desired playing level. Teams are expected to be off balance and a balance should be obtained between the two teams assigned to the activity time.
S> A team volunteer will record and submit an electronic Game Card after each game.

Training Session Modifications v6
#1> All persons within 24ft of AYSO activities must wear a mask, face shield, or face covering, when not actively participating in the sport. Outside of playing, face coverings are required if a 6ft distance cannot be maintained, for example near parking areas or other areas of likely congestion. If you or a family member or player is sick, DO NOT COME TO THE ACTIVITY.
#2> Willful violators of these player protection policies could be banned from the area and could incur further action per the property owners policies &/or AYSO's policies.

C> No handshakes, touching should be limited.
D> Face coverings required for everyone when not playing and 6ft cannot be maintained. 7/24 Note: Additional modifications are expected as we work to create situations where distance can be maintained during play (play corridors, give & go, building from the back, skill circles, etc.).
E> Coaches required to use face coverings. Yelling or whistling should be kept to a minimum and should only be done when all others are 10ft away.
F> Spectators must keep 6ft distance between family units. Face coverings are required for all persons within 24ft of the activity, individuals unable to follow this, must be 24ft away from the field.
G> Spectators and non-team members, must be 18ft away from team areas and should never go near the team.
J> No food, snack, or eating allowed within 24ft of an activity area.
N> A parent, guardian, or person bringing the player to the activity must attest, before joining the activity, to a players capacity to participate and confirm the player does not have and/or had not had that day: a fever of 100.4°F or greater, a new cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, odd chills, odd muscle pain/aches, a sore throat, a headache, fatigue, odd congestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and a new loss of taste or smell.
O> Coaches must record attendance and check off item N with the parent each day.
P> Each player must have a completed Program Payment, Waiver, and Player Release Forms. ! You will be sent a custom link for both later !
T> No trainings should include throw-ins or heading.
U> Keeper trainings should be severely limited / rare and should only be done if hand sanitizer is available (remind players to not touch their face).

Face Coverings Note: We will follow the states guidance on face coverings, including its exceptions. On rainy days, hats or umbrellas are recommended to help keep coverings dry (referees, team managers, and coaches can get a hat from us).



Below are simplistic examples that attempt to demonstrate the proposed procedures...

A Game Day Story: Before leaving the house the player has no jewelry, wearing shin guards with covering black socks, wearing dark athletic shorts, wearing an athletic shirt (or team shirt for 5U-7U), wearing soccer cleats or athletic shoes, has water bottle, has team pinnie(s), and has face mask. When entering Adams Elementary School the family sees a masks required and distance reminder sign. Noticing that others are nearby, the family puts on their masks before exiting the car. As walking out to the field, the family sees a marked line about 24ft from the field that indicates masks are required to be on beyond that point. The parent looks for the team assistant coach near the field, going to the assistant coach, while keeping a distance, the assistant coach asks "NO illness in the family, NO fever, and NO other notable symptoms today?", you reply "none of the above". Your player goes to join the team with the head coach and you look for a space on the spectators side of the field for you and your non-playing child. You look to setup a chair that is 6ft distance from all others, behind the painted red line parallel to the field. You remember that you brought snacks for your youngest, so you look for a spectating space that is outside the 24ft.

A Practice Story: Before leaving the house the player has no jewelry, wearing shin guards with covering black socks, wearing dark athletic shorts, wearing an athletic shirt (or team shirt for 5U-7U), wearing soccer cleats or athletic shoes, has water bottle, has team pinnie(s), has a pumped soccer ball, and has face mask. The parent looks for the team assistant coach near the field. The family puts on their masks, going to the assistant coach, while keeping a distance, the assistant coach asks "NO illness in the family, NO fever, and NO other notable symptoms today?", you reply "none". You tell the assistant coach that your player will carpool home with Eric's family. Your player goes to join the team with the head coach and you look for a space that is 24ft away from the practice cones setup by the coach. Seeing that no others are nearby, you take off your mask and wait for practice to start. Once practice starts, you leave.



More to Come: We are working on guidance for each volunteer role, and continue to adjust plans as we can. Please feel free to reply with any questions. 7/24: OHA Gatherings, OHA Rec Sports, OHA Masks, & OHA Outdoor Rec Guide.



Thank You & I'll see you on the pitch,

Hello AYSO Families,

June Camp starts Monday 6/22 8:45am @ Ashbrook Independent School, & we need coach hosts see below! Summer Camps Signups are open for July(20-24) and August(10-14) (here).

Free Summer Camp: If you host a coach for the camp week, the half or full day summer camp is free. If you, or anyone you know would be interested in hosting (or has a spare guest room they do not mind lending to one of the coaches) then please email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call: 520-230-0939


:: FYI :: Fall Registration: Still open and still just $22.75 to save a spot for a player for fall (here). If you have a specific placement request (here). Any other questions (here) or contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Host a Coach for a Summer Camp...
We are 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 full day scholarship to the camp for each coach they host.

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.

For more information please visit: https://uksoccer.com/host-a-coach/

If you, or anyone you know would be interested in hosting (or has a spare guest room they do not mind lending to one of the coaches) then please contact Alex Hockborn (Assistant Regional Director) from UK International Soccer. You can also indicate interest during registration.

Sports Connect Service Fee
Tue 5/26/2020 1:09 AM

AYSO families,

Thank you to those that have already completed registration.  Registration for fall is still open.  The new Sports Connect Service Fee of $2.75 per transaction went active about a week ago.  I recently saw two registration orders from the same user account that included the Service Fee with each order.  Since the fee is per transaction, you should ideally sign up all of your players in the same order (but don't hold off while one of your players can't decide).

Please go to  https://www.corvallisayso.org/ for Registration or send me an e-mail if you have questions.

Thanks,
Andy Ungerer
AYSO Region 149 Registrar

[CorvallisAYSO] Uniform Survey
Mon 5/18/2020 2:15 PM

Hello 9U+ Region Families,

Uniform Changes Survey:
We want your feedback as we work to lower costs, improve sustainability, & reduce waste....

Survey: https://corvallisayso.org/form/survey

Background:
For years we have been purchasing jerseys that are used about 14 times and discarded or recycled. In early March, the region board voted to move to a new approach. After some research, we found a few options that could save money and allow for reusability... reversibles.

Current Uniform Issues:
Each year a full uniform kit (jersey, shorts, socks) costs about $18 per potential player (if a max team size is 12, we pay $216 per team, even if we only get 10 players). Sometimes the jerseys are miss-sized or additional players are added, causing a number of higher price special orders. All in all, we actually end up paying an average of $20 per player per year. The price is one of many issues, others include short sizes not matching preference and players not using them, logistical issues for volunteers, and difficulties in timeliness of later orders.

Pros for the reversibles:

  1. Lower cost, if the pinnie option.
  2. Reusable from year to year, recyclable/returnable if moving on, and hand-me-down ready.
  3. Stronger material.
  4. Logistically easier to manage and would reduce waste.

Cons for the reversibles:

  1. Sizes won't be precise [pinnies likely oversized][jerseys would likely need to change each year as players grow].
  2. Heavier and often multiple layers required.
  3. Only comes with two colors, for everyone.
  4. Single color socks for all players.

Thanks,
Luke Cotton - AYSO 149 Region Commissioner

Types of requests include Team Friend/Buddy (requests to be placed with a specific player), Play Up a Division, Not Placed With (player or volunteer), & Medical / Play Down / Developmental / VIP Placement. Fill out two forms when needed, for example if you wish to play in a higher division with a friend, please fill out one form for each request.

We make every effort to fill requests, but sometimes we are not able to fulfill the request. Some of the common reasons are below...

  • Play Up: This is often allowed if a player evaluation is strong. Moving up from 11U to 13U needs to have strong indicators that the player can handle that jump. In other words, physical size and power differences warrant caution as 13U players are going through growth spurts.
  • VIP / Play Down: We only allow this in unique circumstances and look for supporting evaluation/recommendation that justifies the move.
  • Team Buddy: If we are able to balance the teams with these requests, we try to fit them in. We focus on requests from head coaches & center referees first, then try to fit in all others.

Playing Costs:
We are asking for the Membership Fee ($20 per player) up front. we would charge the program fees in August after team placement. You can unregister or drop in August and only be out the $20 2020-2021 membership per player.

Regular Core Player Costs
Membership Cost: $20 per player
Program fee added in August: $70 per player
Total Cost for 2020-2021 = $90 per player

Scholarship Core Player Costs
Membership Cost: $20 per player
Program fee added in August: $20 per player
Total Cost for 2020-2021 = $40 per player

NOTICE: the regular player total could be reduced by $10 or more, depending on program changes and player uniform savings. High School would be a lower fee amount. Currently, Sports Connect is not charging the transaction fee, but $2.75 could be an added fee per transaction.

Volunteer Registration / Interest:
To avoid unnecessary background check costs and before we know if your help is needed, we ask that you indicate interest on the player application, we will follow up in late July with volunteer registration directions.

Volunteers, unable to add their job interest to a player registration form, can fill out the volunteer interest form (here).

COVID-19 Potential Fall Modifications & FAQ:
What if games are not possible? Competitions are our primary engine, but competitions are not the only part of our pursuit of player development and the desire to enrich children's lives. If appropriate, we would adjust our entire fall program approach to focus on small group activities and match with the phase at the time. The program cost would be adjusted to match the new model.

Games: Modified soccer rules are likely. Players could be required to have or wear a face covering, depending on circumstances. Spectators might be restricted in number, only allowing a player to have one or two spectators per game. Game days could go beyond 3pm on Saturday, as we will look to spread out the numbers at the fields at one time.

Face covering for games? We will follow the guidance at the time. Multiple situations arise surrounding a game where the coverings would be appropriate, like while walking to the field, on the sideline, and, if appropriate, while playing.

Practices: Training sessions could include a requirement to have and wear a face covering. Allowed training exercises might be restricted and activities might be dictated by best practices at the time.

Referees: Might be required to have and wear face coverings, and referees might need to utilize electronic whistles (we would provide the whistle for the field and the cleaning supplies to be used between uses). Volunteer training will likely be split up to use online, GoToMeeting, & on field training.

Coaches: Might be required to have and wear face coverings, especially when a distance cannot be maintained. Coaches or team managers might be requested to wash pinnies or keeper equipment after practices or games. Volunteer training will likely be split up to use online, GoToMeeting, & on field training.

Formation: We will favor placement by schools & zones, this will lead to balance issues, but will help with keeping peers together for training sessions. If a school or an area has a specific restriction, only that team might be impacted.

Uniform: In a move to meet sustainability goals and reduce player costs, we are looking at uniform options that are simpler, and reusable. You will be informed about any reductions in program costs or changes to uniforms in August.

[CorvallisAYSO] Fall Player Registration Open
Wed 5/6/2020 4:17 AM

Hello |User First Name| and family,

Player registration for Fall 2020 core recreational is now open, register players online in Sports Connect (here), see the registration guide (here). Learn more about our core divisions (here).


Open Core Player Registration - Fall 2020 (includes Spring 2021)

School year 2020-2021 we are doing a different way of registering (here). Asking for just the Membership Fee ($20 per player) up front then charging the final fees in August after team placement and requiring them before you play a game. You can drop in August and potentially only be out the $20 per player (refunds from the national organization are possible if we cancel the fall season).

Regular Core Player Costs
Cost Today: $20 per player (+ possible Sports Connect per transaction fee of $2.75)
Fee added in August: $70* per player
Total Cost for 2020-2021 = $90* per player
*This amount could be reduced by $10 or more, depending on equipment returns and player uniform savings. High School would be a lower fee amount (details).

Scholarship Core Player Costs
Cost Today: $20 per player (+ possible Sports Connect per transaction fee of $2.75)
Fee added in August: $20 per player
Total Cost for 2020-2021 = $40 per player

Volunteers: Indicate interest on the player application, we will follow up in late July with volunteer registration directions. Volunteers, unable to add their job interest to a player registration form, can fill out the volunteer interest form (here).


COVID-19: Possible Fall 2020 Core Program Modifications

Games: Modified soccer rules and restrictions to game customs are possible. Players could be required to wear a face covering while playing. Spectators might be restricted in number, only allowing a player to have one or two spectators per game. Game days could go beyond 3pm on Saturday, as we will look to spread out the numbers in the parking areas at a time.

Practices: Training sessions could include a requirement to have and wear a face covering. Allowed training exercises might be restricted and reducing exercises where players' pickup soccer balls is highly likely.

Referees: Might be required to have and wear face coverings, and referees might need to utilize electronic whistles (we would provide the whistle for the field and the cleaning supplies to be used between uses). Volunteer training will likely be split up to use online, GoToMeeting, & on field training.

Coaches: Might be required to have and wear face coverings, especially when a distance cannot be maintained. Coaches or team managers might be requested to wash pinnies or keeper equipment after practices or games. Volunteer training will likely be split up to use online, GoToMeeting, & on field training.

Team Formation: We will favor placement by schools & zones, this might lead to balance issues, but will keep players with school peers for training sessions. If a school or an area has a specific restriction, only that team might be impacted.

Player Uniform: In a move to meet sustainability goals and reduce player costs, we are looking at uniform options that are simpler, and reusable. The leading uniform plan is to move to heavy reversible pinnies /w numbers, providing socks, and not providing shorts. When you are charged in August for the program fee, you would be informed about the new uniform plan and the lowered program price. I would love feedback on this plan, and I can send you more details as we continue to discuss options.

An additional idea to lower costs further, is to have the pinnies returned at the end of the season, allowing us to spread the cost over a few years. If we have pinnies checked out, this could reduce the fee this year and next year by about $10 per regular player.



Sincerely,
Luke Cotton
AYSO Region 149 Commissioner


P.S. Currently Sports Connect is not charging the transaction fee, but the $2.75 could be an added in the future. We would not use Sports Connect for the program fee in August, unfortunately we need to use it for the membership fee.
