SRSL 2006 RULE CHANGES

April 7th, 2006

To: All Clubs

Re: 2006 SRSL Rules and Regulations





Dear Clubs,



Please find attached word document, which is the SRSL Rules and Regulations for the 2006 Outdoor Season.



The enclosed rules were all approved at the SRSL AGM which was held in January 2006.



All approved changes will be found in Bold.



In addition, the SRSL Executive board has modified 2 additional SRSL rules.



Please find below new wording for SRSL Rule 6”H” & SRSL Rule 14”F”



SRSL Rule 6”H”

A MAXIMUM of Three (3) OSA sanctioned tournaments of which Graduation/Exam will count as one, plus Ontario Cup, must be submitted to the League in writing by March 1st of each year to be given consideration for rescheduling games. Local tournaments will be granted 2 days, long weekend tournaments will be granted 3 days. Travel time will be granted at the discretion of the league for international tournaments plus tournaments over 200km one way. (Exceptions dates, if submitted are used when creating original schedules plus are used throughout the season during the rescheduling process)



SRSL Rule 14”F”

After the release of the league schedule (at the time the season starts), OSA sanctioned tournaments that Clubs have entered into will take precedence in any rescheduling conflicts with the League. This will apply even if the team has not submitted a tournament schedule by March 1st deadline.

Teams are required to advise the SRSL once a tournament is booked on any open dates of the SRSL Schedule. The SRSL must be advised a minimum of 14 days prior to the Tournament date. The SRSL must receive a copy of the tournament host acceptance letter in order for the league to grant the requested dates.





If you have any questions please contact the league office for assistance

CSA DIRECTIONS ON RULE 4 - PLAYER EQUIPMENT

Attached is a memo we just received from Dr. Delaney, hot off the press from
the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA). Note that even though it is sort of
a Canadian version of FIFA Circular 863, it is more thorough, more clear,
more objective, and less opinionated than the FIFA and USSF statements.

In addition to the clarification on the first page, check out the first
bullet point under "3. Orthopaedic supports." Basically it says that
accidentally banging heads is more hazardous than being hit with a knee
brace.

Also notice CSA's motto at the end of the memo: "For the Good of the Game."
They practice what they preach much better than the other soccer
organizations.

REFEREE QUALITY REPORT

Attached is a new form that all carded coaches and managers are encouraged to use regularly to report on the quality of game officials in your 2005 competitions.

Be sure to report ALL quality and not just the bad stuff.

To be totally fair, perhaps referees should also be provided with the opportunity to report on our coaching behaviour. Perhaps they haave a form also...beware.

OSA DISCIPLINE DETAILS SEP.04

Coaches and Managers , please cascade this far and wide, and where necessary, make hard copies to get the message home to everyone.



As an intro to this note I am asking each and every team to make a specific effort to meet with all of your parents and discuss the absolute requirement of proper behaviour before,during and after soccer games.

The poor behaviour of our opposition is no excuse to turn our self control off. After all, it takes TWO to have an argument.

We are suffering an unusual increase in the number of adult related incidents at our soccer activities.

This bears serious concern for a number of reasons:

The behaviour of the adults involved in our games reflects the personality and culture of our Club. We teach and expect high standards.

This behaviour is a reflection on our community and proud city when we travel outside.

Our behaviour has a great deal to do with the mood and, in some cases, the outcome of a game by disrupting a referee's concentration and that of the players.

Our behaviour is, worst of all, a personal embarrassment to our players who just want to play soccer.


We have had a number of recent serious incidents that have drawn the Club into disrepute.

One case - two parents stepped on the field during a game and approached the referee in an animated fashion to draw his attention to an altercation at the opposite end of the field. Referee felt his safety was threatened, called the game and exited to safety.
Result - $500 fine and a hearing

Next - a parent decides to berate a linesperson about a call. He doesn't let up and in a fury hurls abusive and racial language at the entire referee crew.
Result - hearing pending, but at least a $300 fine and parent banishment from all future games.

Next - parents loudly and persistently complaining about the officiating in an out of town game. Referee asks them to settle down or he will call the game.
Several parents say "what are you going to do about it".....the entire Erin Mills spectator crowd is moved to the parking lot before the game can continue.
Result - hearing pending, but at least a $300 fine.

I am aware of coaches being removed from games, but not reported. I am aware of abusive arguments between home and opponent adults.

As much as the Club is assigned the "guilt" of these offences, the fines become the responsibility of the offending team, and the team is expected to collect from the guilty parties.

As a matter of Club policy,

at no time are Sponsor or fundraising monies to be used to pay for these offences. Your sponsors, and those who contributed to your fundraising will take serious offense to their funds being used for penalty assessment.

Team financial statements (due Oct 31) must reflect how these penalties were funded.

Offending teams will have their discipline bonds increased for one year to $250 plus the total fines levied in the prior season. This will apply to adult behaviour issues and serious player issues that result in fines.

I have attached the excerpt from the OSA penalties for a variety of infractions.

Please make a special effort to pre-empt misguided behaviour and keep us out of the courts.

If anyone needs assistance collecting these fines from the guilty persons the Club can assist you with Small Claims proceedings.

Keep the peace and have fun please.

PLAYER SKILLS RECORD FOR HOUSE LEAGUE

We are constantly working on improving the way we can make it easier for the coaches to complete the ratings for their team.
I realize that some of you may well have started the process of getting the ratings in from the original one that I sent on July 13th.

Attached is a revised format that will make it much easier.

All the coach needs to do is to fill in all the information for all their players on the sheet (tab marked Team Record) . This sheet is linked to the tabs marked # 1 to #17.

For example the information for player 1 on the Team Record sheet will be automatically be transferred to the sheet marked #1, player 2 information will be transferred to #2 etc.

By doing this the coaches will only need to fill in ONE MASTER SHEET, and not 14-17 individual ones.

I hope this helps.

Regards
Jay Vasant

GAME CRITIQUE FORM

We are all learning to work in a new environment with a different approach to coaching.

Gone are the days when you took a team and locked them away in your closet, reporting results at the end of the season.

Our Club Head Coach Josef is mandating a significant increase in the sharing activity among coaches. Teams must learn to work together often - and not only within the same age groups.

This is not an option. Each of us is expected to participate eagerly.

Attached is an Excel form from Josef that he would like all teams to start using.
This form records some specific observations in a game.

One is 81/2 x 11", the other is 8 1/2 x 14" (more space) (Creative improvement is welcome)

Copies will be available in the reception Rep mailbox if required.

Invite one or two Erin Mills Coaches to your game(s) and ask them to critique you team's play on the field. The teams being reviewed will learn a few things on each occasion. The coaches doing the reviewing will also learn from the breakdown analysis.

Accepting criticism is a bold step to keeping an open mind and growing with your players.

I have no doubt that each assessment will recognize some great things as well as some clear weaknesses that could be corrected.

Josef has a clear mandate to "Coach the Coaches" and it all begins with sharing and learning amongst ourselves.

Teams are also encouraged to borrow a camcorder and record their games from time to time. Players and coaches find video very revealing in correcting behaviour on the field.

These are exciting times in Erin Mills.

Your are building our future stars.

REFEREE REGISTRATION

If you have any players (or coaches) who are interested in taking their basic Level 4 referee training they should consider signing up on a wait list at the clubhouse reception.

Referee credentials leads to an income source as well as a different learning perspective of the game. Referee training and experience is a valuable life skill in people management.

Candidates must be 13 yrs old at the time of the course.

The registration form is attached here and also printable from the EMSC web site.
