Silent Saturday - April 27th

When: April 27th 2019
Where: All AYSO Games, including away games.

"Silent Saturday" is used in AYSO Regions throughout the country with a great deal of success. Its main purpose is to just let the kids play and have fun without having to worry about how their performance is affecting the adults on the sidelines. "Silent Saturday" is a throwback to the old schoolyard days when kids would congregate after school and on weekends just to play the sport all day without regard to who was winning and repercussions for poor play and decision-making. Coaches are requested to communicate and reinforce this with spectators!

The objectives of holding a "Silent Saturday" are:

  • To emphasize that the game is about letting the kids have fun and play.
  • To show that kids can play well on their own with limited instruction.
  • To help the few parents and coaches who feel they must provide constant direction, understand how disruptive it can be.
  • To give players the chance to trust their skills and instincts without sideline input.
  • To encourage leadership skills among the individual players as they have the unique opportunity of giving their own instruction on the field.
  • To encourage a sense of true teamwork as the players must learn to rely upon one another and communicate with each other accordingly.
  • To support our volunteer referees, both youth and adult, by eliminating sideline interference and comments.

While the vast majority of adult verbal participation is intended to be positive and constructive, the fact of the matter is that games can (and have in the past) become so loud that the players often have difficulty hearing each other on the field. Taking one week off from any verbal interference may help adults gain perspective on just how loud they've been in the past. You will all be amazed at how quiet the field will be-come.

RULES FOR SILENT SATURDAY:

Spectators: We request that you make no verbal comments about the game or direct any comments to the players or referees (or coaches) on or off the field. Clapping IS allowed! Be creative in how you choose to cheer your child's team - make signs to hold up or bring a rally towel in the team's color and wave it wildly. There are lots of ways to cheer other than verbally. But please no noise makers and especially no whistles, or compressed air horns.

Coaches: It is recommended that you do not provide any direction - verbal or non-verbal - to players who are on the field. You may speak quietly to any players on the bench and have a conversational discussion about the game with the players before and after the game, and during halftime. If absolutely required, rarely and quietly call a player on the field to the touchline to provide tactical instruction while the game is in play (just like you are allowed to do during a normal game). Then let the player convey the message to their team.

Players: You are encouraged to speak to each other on the field as normal. You are free to support each other and provide direction to each other. Substitute players on the bench must be quiet as well and not cheer or provide tactical instruction to their teammates. Lest they simply replace the coach or act on their behest.

Referees: For this special day, referees are being asked to monitor the spectators and coaches adherence to these guidelines and to offer reminders if the recommendations are not being followed, including notifying the coaches and/or stopping the game if necessary. Continue to verbalize often during the game as you normally would and do not to be concerned about the fact they can now hear you off the field as well. You are there to help the players have a safe, fair, and fun time.

[CorvallisAYSO] Practices This Week 15U & EXTRA
Sun 4/7/2019 8:45 PM

Hello 15U & EXTRA Families,

Practices for most divisions are canceled. You are allowed to practice, but not on an Adams soccer field or at a closed location.

You can choose to cancel practices or find an open location for practices...
+ At the Adams site is a space that was once a school, this time of year, that location is like bumpy turf.
+ You can also use a pavement area, remember all players need shin guards, and should wear shoes appropriate for pavement.
+ You can reserve a location (turf or gym), but most will have a cost. District grass locations are available due to an existing agreement, outside that, you would likely need to pay as a team.

Thanks,
Luke

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

[CorvallisAYSO] Practices Canceled 8U-12U
Sun 4/7/2019 8:08 PM

Hello AYSO Families,

Practices Canceled for at least Monday 4/8 & Tuesday 4/9

Even if your field is open, we are canceling practices for everyone* in the region, the Corvallis school district will likely publish field closures late Monday.

* 2 Exceptions: 1. 15U & EXTRA teams can seek alternate/open locations to practice, including gym, turf, or pavement (use of Adams soccer fields is not allowed). 2. Teams that had already paid for a facility, and cannot cancel without a penalty, can practice as planned.

The website will continue to have updates: https://www.corvallisayso.org/

[CorvallisAYSO] Fields and Activity Rotation
Mon 4/1/19 1:30PM

Hello Coaches,

Please be mindful of the fields and the damage to the grass. Remember to rotate your activities to use different spaces and avoid setting up activities in heavy traffic areas, especially by the goals.


Moving Goals:
If you can, and know how, feel free to move the goals (w/ the anchor). Remember to place the goal back (w/ the anchor).
If you are using Adams field 123, do not move the goals (the anchor is metal rebar, let's not destroy a mower).


We all want the fields in good shape for the next 7 weeks. Damage today will stay for a long time.


Thanks,
Luke

Fields Setup: This Saturday morning 3/30 we will be working to finish connecting field dots running string and painting the first lines. We could use some help to get the season started.

[CorvallisAYSO] Adams Area Field Changes
Sun 3/24/2019 10:10 AM

Hello Volunteers,

Heads Up: We have moved fields for spring 2019. Field 142 moved north, fields 101 & 102 moved to where 81 & 82 were, and 81 & 82 moved to Adams. No fields reside on gopher/mole territory. Please review the new fields map (here).

Teams w/ Practices @ Adams Area:
10U+ teams/fields, continue to play on your reserved field using the new map. Field 142 can now always have the nets up. Any changes/shifting will need to be negotiated on the fly at the field. Please be flexible, reservations show that space is available (coach practice guide).

8U teams/fields, have been moved to the Adams property, if you reserved field 81 or 82 you will need to shift to field 61 or 83, as baseball teams are not moving from the backstops in that area. It is likely you will need to negotiate on the fly at the field with the other soccer teams.
FYI: you could park in the neighborhood to the south on Knollbrook, it is closer and a path takes you right to field 83.

Game Day Changes: Parking, always parking. 8U goals will be locked at Adams, field opener/closer will handle them. Field 142 will not need to have nets removed.

Thanks,
Luke Cotton - Acting Fields Coord.
