TO DO LIST:
- Field Information: Update your field information on the club Field Info Section of Club page. Each club will enter and keep current its field information as “permits” in the CLUB Field Info section of the club page on the wyslsoccer.org website and Manage Field Permits.
- Club Field Directions: These directions are designed for coaches and parents to be able to find fields alphabetically at www.wyslsoccer.org. Club President/designee should review the field directions on the WYSL website and revise them if a new field has been added and e-mail any changes to email@example.com. One full-day field is required for every six teams playing on that size field. (That means noon to dark for small sided and 9 to dark for full sided.) Get as much field time as you can for the WYSL to use in scheduling. Unused time can be returned to the community or other groups after the schedule is final. Field time needed for games is: U9/10 - 1:15, U11/12 - 1:30, U13/14 - 1:45, U15+: 2 hours. U9, 10, 11 and 12 games cannot start before noon. U13 games can start at 11:30 am, U14 at 11:00 am, and U15 and high school games at 9:00 am.
All available fields and times for Sunday will need a permit. As examples, permits for all the Spring 2011 fields will be on the web site by June 1. Those permits can be used as templates or cloned for a new season. Permits must be entered as early as possible and at least 6 weeks before the start of the season. Use preliminary information if that’s all that you have and correct it as early as possible. Instructions for permits are on the website.
· How to update Club information: (Club officers, team pages, individual field directions) are on the WYSL website. The club President or president’s designee (person with club administration rights) is responsible for updating club officers’ information and keeping individual field directions accurate for their club. Go to www.wyslsoccer.org. Go to “Clubs” on left- hand side of screen under “About Us”. In center of page find your club and go into club page. Right-hand top corner, “log in”.
If it is the first time accessing this page, put email address in and leave password blank and press “first time user or forgot password” at bottom. A password will be emailed to you immediately- print it out and save it. This will be your password to access the Club Information Page where you can update all club information.
- Special team requests: Send all team or club special schedule requests or coach coordination requests by email to the WYSL Scheduler (firstname.lastname@example.org) as early as possible and preferably before the scheduling (5 weeks before the start of the season). Any request made after the preliminary schedule is sent out will not be accepted. Each request must include: Club / Team Name / Age Group / Request / and, for coach coordinations, coach name. DO NOT PUT SPECIAL REQUESTS ON THE APPLICATION/SEEDING FORM!
The league only coordinates games for a head coach of two WYSL teams. We do not coordinate for co-head coaches, trainers, assistant coaches, or club officials. Coaches may not be head coach for more than two WYSL teams playing in the league.
- Insurance Certificates: All insurance certificates already requested by clubs in prior seasons will be automatically generated and e-mailed to the e-mail provided for that club in late August. If the e-mail address has changed, please let the League know. It is suggested that clubs get an e-mail address that will not change over the years (i.e. PO Box). The Certificates of Insurance are good for one year. If there is a new facility, please enter the formal name of new facility on the Certificate of Insurance request form and e-mail to email@example.com.
- Application/Seeding Request Form : All teams must fill out an online application/seeding request form to provide information to the WYSL Seeding Committee, listing two different contacts. The information that is submitted on the Application/Seeding Form will create the contacts on the Fall 2013 team page, which can be added to and revised by the authorized team reps. Team contacts may then access the team page by clicking upper right “team log-in” using their designated e-mail address and password. The start date to submit online seeding forms is June 21st. Make sure all your teams submit one online and either print them or have a summary sheet.
- Coaches: Coaches who have taken licensing courses should submit to you a copy of proof of licensing. Only in the Fall Season is a New Coach allowed a temporary coaching pass; however, that coach is required to be licensed by the following spring season by taking both the WYSL 8-hour certification over the winter (or equivalent) course, and two-hour Orientation course (offered in fall), and by returning that temporary pass to his/her registrar along with uploading a picture in order to get a permanent coaching pass (no temporary passes will be allowed in spring season.) A coach may only be a temporary coach once.
Risk Management: All coaches and managers, must register on line with Risk Management, a background check, by going to www.wyslsoccer.org, click on “Risk Management” and follow instructions. Risk management registration is good for two years. The Risk Management background check will cost $10 per coach, payable by credit card online.
- Coaches Concussion Awareness Certificates: The WYSL Board of Directors has unanimously passed the requirement that all WYSL licensed coaches complete the CDC Concussion Awareness Online Course before the resumption of League play for Fall 2013. This valuable, short, free online course was developed to help coaches recognize the signs of a possible concussion and the proper steps to follow when the coach suspects a concussion has occurred. Upon course completion a Concussion Awareness certificate will be issued. Coaches will be asked to have these Certificates in their possession for all their WYSL league games.
Please share the following link to this course with all of your coaches: http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/Training/HeadsUpConcussion.html
