RC Update Week 3

(Week 3)
Greetings North Park AYSO players and parents,

Last week has come and gone, and now we’re looking forward to this weekend for some more fun soccer action.

Here are some re-caps of last weekend and a look forward into this weekend:

Picture Day - We had a good turn-out for picture day, with few delays, so that’s always a good thing.  For those who were unable to make it, the picture company may give us a make-up day in the future, so be on the look-out for that announcement.

Junior Referee Training Session (Friday 9/29 from 5-6pm at Morley Field)

If your kids are 12 years or older, bring them out to learn about being a sideline referee/Assistant Referee (AR).  The intent is to help our kids become a little more comfortable with being an AR, which really helps our Center Referees.  No equipment necessary, just show up.  We will meet by the big scoreboard area from 5-6pm.

If you are ready to help referee, go here and sign-up: http://region785.soccerleaguemanager.net/root_home.cfm?426A5056080D

Matrix Update – Our Matrix program is off to a great start.  To read more about where we are today, go to this link: http://www.aysonorthpark.org/Default.aspx?tabid=808490&mid=882247&newskeyid=HN1&newsid=120011765&ctl=newsdetail

Overflow Parking Area Warning – Be advised, there are specific areas we can park without trouble, but if you choose to park outside those areas, you run the risk of being cited.  To read more, go to this link: http://www.aysonorthpark.org/Default.aspx?tabid=808490&mid=882247&newskeyid=HN1&newsid=120011764&ctl=newsdetail

No dogs inside fenced playing area during AYSO events

Thank you to everyone for helping with the dog on the field situation.  We still have more work to do, but thank you for keeping your dog outside the playing area.  My dog didn’t like being excluded from all the fun, but he’ll get over it.

Coach and Parent Behavior - We had some issues last weekend with coaches and parents forgetting how to behave, including coaches talking negatively to players, coaches talking negatively to coaches, parents talking negatively to each other, and profanity being used by adults in our U8 Division.  This is not the environment we are working to build.  Coaches, you are the role models and you cannot lose your self-control.  At no time is the use of profanity ok during our AYSO events.

Colina del Sol Rec Center - We had some issues (non-AYSO people interfering with games and players) at Colina del Sol Rec Center which we are working to address, including the rescheduling of some games that are hosted there.

Standings

For U10 and above, standings are posted.  Check them out below:

Friday Field Painting Sessions:

We could use a few more people who are available on Friday mornings to help paint fields.  Thank you to Lissa Metzger for stepping in.  Coach Albert Coria (BU19 coach) will also be volunteering some of his time to help.  Who else?  Let me (rc@aysonorthpark.org) and Sandy Keaton (sandy.keaton@sandag.org) know and we’ll coordinate with you.

Silent Saturday - Oct 7th

Click here to read more about our Silent Saturday:

https://ayso.bluesombrero.com/Default.aspx?tabid=808490&mid=882247&newskeyid=HN1&newsid=120011763&ctl=newsdetail

Endorsed by the AYSO National Office, Silent Saturday is a chance to let players communicate WITHOUT the assistance of a coach / parent or others yelling instructions from the sidelines during play. It promotes communication, cohesion as a team, and builds trust among players and most important allows players the chance to grow on this important weekend.  For our U8 and under players, it’s ok for the coaches to continue quietly guiding and instructing their players, but not for the parents/spectators.

Our Regional Board Members and staff will be onsite at the fields throughout the day to ensure this is enforced, and will be expecting every coach / asst coach / and spectators to honor this important initiative.  Click here for an important video that describes more about this from Scott Gimple, AYSO's Director of Player Development, appeared on the Hallmark Channel's "Home & Family":

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtM85LeP5tg&feature=youtu.be

Honor the game and remember that respect starts with you and me.  Let's create an environment that allows the kids to play without all the distractions from the sidelines!!  We need everyone’s support to make Silent Saturday a success!

NO COACHING DURING PLAY
NO CHEERING DURING PLAY
“JUST CLAPPING”       

LET THE KIDS PLAY!!!!!

See you on the field!

Take care,

Open Position: Storage Container and Field Manager

Still open.  No takers?  It’s not that tough of a role, but you really have to wanna take ownership of it, or else it won’t work.  We are looking for a volunteer field manager to take ownership of our fields and our storage shed. This person would be the point of contact for everything from equipment storage to field set-ups.  If you’re up to the task, please contact me at rc@aysonorthpark.org

No dogs inside fenced playing area during AYSO events

I noticed several people out at Morley Field on Saturday with their dogs despite the signs we put up at the entrances stating that dogs are NOT allowed during AYSO events.  It’s for the safety of our children that we ask that you keep your dog(s) outside the Morley Field fenced area during our AYSO events.  If you see other people inside the fenced area with dogs, please remind them of our policy and ask them to take the dogs outside the fenced area, or else you can let one of our referees or board members know and we’ll be happy to intervene.

Field Equipment Set-Up and Break-Down

Please remember that if you have the first game of the day on a field, then you are required to get to MF early to help set up.  If you have the last game of the day on a field, then you need to break down the equipment and move it to the storage box.

Referee Appreciation Program

This season, we continue our Referee Appreciation Program.  This program is for all our referees, but it’s especially targeted towards our youth referees.  This season’s appreciation program will be AMC movie tickets for points earned by refereeing games.  Here’s how the program will work:

-          Youth referee must be 12 years or older

-          The point system will be 1 point for AR, and 2 points for Center Referee

-          It takes 8 points to earn 1 movie ticket

-          Junior referees can only do games for age groups less than or equal to their own age group, i.e. U12 player can do U12 or U10 games.

-          At the end of each month, referees can redeem points for movie tickets.  For example, if a referee has 24 points, then he/she will earn 3 movie tickets at the end of the month.

-          Any remaining points carried forward will be applied towards the next month.

So if you and/or your child are interested in being part of our referee program, please send an e-mail to ref@aysonorthpark.org and let him know you want to volunteer to be a referee (youth or adult).  Being a referee makes you smarter, as a player, because you really know the rules/laws of the game.  This is also a great way to give back to our community.  Additionally, you can earn volunteer service hours for your school or job.  This referee appreciation program is just one way for us to thank our volunteer referees for the hard work they do every weekend!  Please make sure you thank them also.
