A very informative site for coaches and referees
This site is about the most interesting site that I have come accross. It has a question and answer section of real submissions to qualified referees.

It's worth checking out - you will learn a thing or two.

Saturday and Sunday Practices
Haldimand Youth Soccer is primarily a Monday to Thursday league. Practices on Friday and Saturday are discouraged. Permission to practice or re-schedule games on Sundays must receive must be obtained from the Haldimand Youth Soccer Executive. Contact your town rep for more information.

5 Goal Differential rule
Haldimand Youth Soccer is a non-competative league and we remind coaches that if you are winning by 5 or more goals that coaches tell their players to back off and refrain from further scoring. It is not fun for the players on a losing team to be beaten by 9-1 for example. Help keep the game enjoyable for all players by abiding by this rule
