SRSL RULE CHANGES FOR 2006
SRSL
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

RESTRICTED USE OF SOCCER FIELDS
FIELD1
Our soccer fields are happy once again.

The snow is gone and the ground has been well watered.

Our fields are busy draining and growing new spring grass.

The soccer community has a responsibility to protect the fields we play on.

We protect our fields in the spring by staying off them until they are ready and the City of Mississauga declares them playable.

We certainly encourage all teams to start moving outside as soon as possible.
We have many kilometers of paved trails suitable for running.

Until the fields dry up you may want to sacrifice an inexpensive ball for small games play on a safe patch of asphalt somewhere.

You might even find a high and dry patch of grass somewhere away from the fields.

Please avoid field use until the Parks department has issued our fields permits.

Make a point of sharing this note with all players and parents. Let's have everyone in our community protecting our fields.

We all want quality fields for our summer play. The management of that quality begins right now with us.

Every little bit hurts.......

If you have any creative suggestions for outdoor practice and training for this time of season please pass them along and I will share your ideas with all teams.

We typically see our field permits in mid May, not sooner.




UNDER 10 LEAGUE PLAY IN 2006
LITTLE
PHSA Presidents and Board of Directors Support U-10 Mini-Soccer League for
2006.

At the November 2nd PHSA Presidents Meeting, the Club representatives in
attendance were unanimous that there is a need for some sort of league in
Peel-Halton to provide U-10 Mini-Soccer structure beyond that which the
Clubs will provide within their own house leagues.

While we all recognize that Mini-Soccer is to focus on development rather
than competition, most Clubs were of the opinion that development of their
best players required the stimulus of team competition beyond what their own

Club could provide. Note that in SRSL in 2005, 9 PHSA Clubs had 13 teams at

U-10G and 13 PHSA Clubs had 18 teams at U-10B.

Other unanimous opinions at the meeting were that there should be no need
for U-10 teams to "play-out" of PHSA nor should teams from other Districts
be "playing-in". It was requested that geography and limitations on travel
be taken into account when structuring any league in PHSA.

The Peel-Halton Select Soccer League has made a very recent application to
the PHSA Board to expand their League to include U-12, U-11 and U-10. The
Club representatives at the Presidents Meeting asked the PHSA Board to
review this application and to work with PHSSL to determine if a PHSSL U-10
division can meet the needs of PHSA members as described above.

Walter Eadie has been appointed by the PHSA Board to work with the League
and the parties will be meeting soon in order that any further updates and
decisions can be communicated at the PHSA AGM on November 26th.

In summary:
- there will be an U-10 mini-soccer league in PHSA in 2006
- if mutually satisfactory arrangements can be made, it will be based in the

PHSSL
- further information will be provided at the PHSA AGM

CITY'S ANTI-LITTER CAMPAIGN
litter2
The City of Mississauga, Recreation and Parks Dept. through Pat Craigmile, Sports Manager,has requested our support for their "Slam Dunk Your Junk" anti-littering campaign to maintain the playing fields free from litter.
They have requested all sport teams to develop an anti-litter clean up program for each field before or after practice or game.

Pat's letter notes:
" The City cannot combat the litter problem alone and (this) ..will not be eliminated until residents begin to feel pride and ownership in their community. We expect the campaign and our activities will encourage both children and parents
to avoid littering.

I know that the Erin Mills Soccer Club can make a difference and as a responsible community soccer club I would appreciate the help of everyone in responding to Pat and the City's request.

Thanks for all your help

THE FUTURE OF OUR SOCCER FACILITIES IS IN YOUR HANDS
mississ

Please take a moment to visit the the City of Mississauga's web site.
Just click on the city logo.

This link outlines the City's "FUTURE DIRECTIONS" planning process for indoor and outdoor sports facilities.

Within this link are the scheduled dates for 10 public hearings that will be staged to explain the City's direction in facility planning over the next 10 years.

Attendance from the broad soccer community is absolutely essential at ALL of these meetings.
Soccer needs to illustrate the collective power that we have.

We have been told clearly that the input from these public meetings have a powerful bearing on the decisions made by the City Council.

Barry Nye and I attended a City session tonight where their consultant presented his final recommendation to the City about outdoor facilities.
This report looks ahead 30 years.

Some salient points from the recommendations.

Soccer requires 64 additional soccer fields NOW, but within the 30 year forecast.
(21 additional outdoor soccer fields are forecasted for 2005)
Cricket needs 9 fields.....
12 fields are needed for multi-purpose sports - football, frisbee, field hockey, etc.
No additional baseball fields are required - in fact baseball has a surplus of facilities as youth participation declines.
(7 of 19 baseball clubs in town provided no input to the study)
All of the soccer clubs participated fully in the study, although only Erin Mills and Clarkson were represented tonight.
(We were outnumbered by cricket interests....)

The report strongly urges the City to re-establish relationships with the school boards for facility sharing/maintenance.
40 school sports facilities are not within the City's inventory.

The report suggests that artificial turf could reduce the number of fields required through more frequent, efficient use. (no rest periods for grass to recover).

Each public meeting will consist of:

15 minute presentation of City finances
45 minute presentation of the City's "Future Directions" for both indoor and outdoor facilities. This will illustrate the results of the householder surveys and all of the other input from interested parties.
The recommendations for the 5 yr and 10 yr planning cycle will be illustrated.

The "Master Plan" will be then presented to City Council in June who will approve the budgets (or not).

Mark your calendars now and plan to attend as many of these sessions as possible. Plan to be vocal and noticed.

Share this email with all of your team parents and encourage their attendance also.

Share this email with everyone you know in the Mississauga soccer community and encourage their attendance also.

We will be rewarded with the facilities we need provided EVERYONE brings their opinions.

There are many positive things happening (on paper) for soccer's benefit....let's make sure they are not set aside for the interest group(s) that are better represented.

ADP 2003 SHOWCASE TOUR REPORT
Bob - I know that Kim and the girls would join me in saying that over the next few months, ALL of our rep players and their parents should spend an evening discussing the trip, the opportunties, the schools and soccer and academic programs that are available - with the players and coaches who went on this trip......

How many parents know that student athletes have full-time (no cost) tutors available to help them every day if required in any of their courses to help them with their schoolwork?

Press Release:    Mississauga, Ontario
                           April 3rd, 2003

The Erin Mills Soccer Club of Mississauga, Ontario, with 6000 plus members - one of the largest and most progressive soccer clubs in Ontario, is proud to announce the preliminary results of its spring University Showcase Trip.

38 of the Club's top male and female players, members of the Erin Mills Advanced Development Program (ADP), just returned safe, but exhausted, back in Mississauga after a 12-day, 16-state Tour of America. Not having seen an outdoor soccer field in seven months, without the benefit of a single outdoor practice session, still in the middle of their indoor 6v6 soccer season, the boys played a physically and mentally punishing schedule of 10 games, the girls an equally tough 8. They have all returned home with an energized committment to improve their schoolwork and their soccer skills. The Club is developing both short and long-term relationships with Universities and Colleges across America, and looks forward to placing these and future Erin Mills players on academic and athletic scholarships.

ADP members train up to six days a week towards a future path to play high level soccer at College, University and eventually professionally

Erin Mills ADP University Showcase Tour of America March 21 - April 1, 2003

Girls traveling were 13 - 19 year olds, the core of the Erin Mills OYSL Provincial League u19 team supplemented with talented younger Club players, including girls from the defending Canadian National Champion Erin Mills Girls u16 team, building towards defending their national title this fall. The girls played varsity women's soccer teams, including 3 of the top 15 University teams in the United States, with a line-up of composed of as many as five 13-16 year olds. They were outmatched but not outworked. It was simply amazing to see the team grow over the week; the development of some of these fine young female players, whose skills and intensity often matched their opponents, will lead to many immediate and future opportunities. At least eight of these young ladies are candidates for immediate and future soccer scholarships!

The boys traveling were the Club's top 18-20 year olds, primarily members of the Erin Mills u19 Olympians, currently the premier youth team in Ontario.

Men's Results

Friday - played Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh - indoor 7 aside - in 2 back-to-back one-hour scrimmages - Cumulatively won 6-5.

Saturday - visited Saint Francis University in Loretto, Pennsylvania in the morning and then played in the evening at James Madison University in Harrisonburg Virginia against a mix of senior varsity and club players - winning 2-0.

Sunday evening - played Wake Forest University, for most of 2002 the number one ranked University team in America - in Winston-salem, North Carolina - losing 5-0.

Tuesday -played Georgia Southern University in Statesboro Georgia - losing 2-1.

Wednesday -visited Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.

Thursday - played Lambuth University in Memphis Tennessee. (Primarily reserves -7 starters didn't dress), losing 1-0 in a windy game on a hard field, only goal bounced in over goalie's head, caught keeper - from other side of center!

Friday - played Collaiste Ide College from Ireland, probably our worst game of trip - cold and windy, hard field - game conditions didn't suit us - weren't in game -lost 5-1.

Saturday morning - played Cincinatti United - (Ohio State Champions). Our reserves played - only dressed 12 players - and had 2 goalies playing as field players. Our line-up team stayed at hotel to rest for feature game that night. Lost 2-1. They controlled first half - up 2-0, but couldn't get out of their own end for most of second half, we scored once, almost again at 89th minute. We picked 2 of our 12 to dress for evening game.

Saturday night - played well against a strong College Football Association of Ireland National Team, a team composed of Ireland's top young soccer talent, in feature game, losing 3-0. (They beat University of Memphis 4-3 on Thursday).

Sunday - won 2-0 against Texas Spurs (played 3/4 starters but mainly reserves).

Monday - lost to University of Kentucky 2-0 in Lexington. This was really the first game for us that we actually started to play 'outdoor soccer' our way!

Significant interest was shown in the boys. All of the Line-up players as well as several others are serious candidates for scholarships this fall from several Universities.
