Suffolk County Soccer Playoffs ...
Suffolk County will crown seven League Champions. Those teams, plus any
team that completes at least a .500% league season will enter the Suffolk
County playoffs. If a team plays in a mixed classification league and doesn't
get a .500% league season they can "petition" Section-XI to get into the
playoffs if their losses were to the higher classification teams.
A Section-XI committee would make that decision. Once the playoff teams
are determined ... each team competes within their classification.

Suffolk County Class Championships ...
As the playoffs conclude, 5 Suffolk County Champions will be crowned.
One Class-AA Champion, one Class-A Champion, one Class-B Champion,
one Class-C Champion and one Class-D Champion.
Within each Classification, at least 2 teams must qualify for the playoffs
before a Suffolk County Class Championship would be played. 
If only one team qualifies, that team could represent Suffolk County in the
New York State soccer tournament as a "qualifier". Section-XI would make
that decision. That team would not be considered a Suffolk County Class
Champion because there was no championship game played. That team
would be considered a class "qualifier" and represent Suffolk County in the
New York State soccer tournament.

New York State Soccer Playoffs ...
The 5 Class Champions will then represent Suffolk County in the New York
State Boys' Soccer Championships. That playoff system ends when 5 New
York State Class Champions are crowned.


* Each February, the NYSPHSAA readjusts the classification numbers using
the "BEDS" reports listing school enrollment. The 5 classifications are then
divided into 5 blocks each representing 20% of all NYS school enrollments.
In late February, the 5 classification numbers are adjusted by the NYSPHSAA.  


2018 New York State Classification Numbers
Class-AA = 965 or more students
Class-A   = 500 and 964 students
Class-B   = 270 and 499 students
Class-C   = 150 and 269 students
Class-D   = 149 or less students

          Home teams will wear their colored uniforms. 
          Away teams will wear their white uniforms ... "all-white" jerseys and solid white socks are required.
Unsportsmanlike Conduct 
     A change from a Red card to a Yellow card for a player who denys an obious goal scoring 
     opportunity in the penalty box and the referee awards a penalty kick.
Revision
     Because the rules now allows the starting kick-off to be played in any direction ... 
     the player taking the kick-off may now stand in his opponents half of the field.
Revision 
     Under garments only need to be the same color and same lenght. 
     Last year ... under garments had to match the color of the jersey and match the color of the shorts. 


WHITE JERSEYS

   The WAIVER for colored stripes and or piping's on white jerseys has expired !  
     There will be no new varsity waivers to this rule.
   REQUIRED for 2018 and beyond ...  
 
     Starting in the 2016 season "all white" jersey's are required on the varsity level.
     Starting in the 2016 season "all white" socks are required on the varsity level.
     White Jerseys ...      
     There should be no colored stripes or colored piping's on the white jerseys.
     There can be colored numbers front & back and colored names on the back.
     Manufacture's logos with colors are allowed.
     School logos are permitted and may have color.
    

     This rule does not apply to shorts !
     Home & Away shorts can be any color.
     If
shorts are mainly white, they can have colored stripes or pipings.  
     You can wear the same shorts home and away.


     * WHITE JERSEY & WHITE SOCKS PENALTY ... games should be played. 
           Referees are required to notify Section-XI of teams who are in violation.
           Section-XI will notify the school's AD saying their soccer team violates the new uniform rule.
           The school's AD can comply or ask the NYSPHSA for a varsity waiver due to financial reasons.


Junior Varsity & Middle School
 The waiver for ... JV and MS teams has been extended for 2018 and beyond.

       At this time ... Boy's and Girls JV and MS teams are not required to have all white jerseys.

KEERPER JERSEYS
 

    NOW REQUIRED ON ALL LEVELS ...   
     Starting with the 2015 season ... goalkeeper's need to have a # on their jersey.
     They must be numbered the same as a field player's jersey ... FRONT & BACK
     The number must be different from the numbers you use for your field players.
     * Example ... you can't have a #1 field player and a keeper that wears #1
     The FRONT number can be on the jersey, shorts or pants.

JEWELRY
NOT ALLOWED even if a player just got his ears pierced that day.
NO TAPE covering any jewelry is allowed.
That includes plugs to fill large holes in the ear. It is considered jewelry.
Jewelry also includes string wrist bands.
Bottom line... No jewelry and No tape covering jewelry !


GOALS

Problems are occurring on fields that are used for football and soccer.
The soccer goals are being lined up with the football crossbar.
Please try to avoid this situation.
In most cases this can be avoided on fields that are not permanently marked.
Schools should shorten the soccer field by a couple of yards.
Some schools take the easy way out by using the same goal/boundary line for both sports.
That is not recommended.


SOFT RED CARD - ELIMINATED
In a continued emphasis on improving sportsmanship, the “soft red” has been eliminated in
high school soccer.
Effective with the 2012-13 season, a second yellow card not only will
disqualify a player, but the team will not be permitted to substitute for the disqualified player.
Previously, a team was permitted to replace a player who had received a second yellow card.


HANDLING BALL IN YOUR OWN PENALTY AREA

Rule 12-8-1f  will now disqualify a player who deliberately handles a ball in his/her own penalty
area to prevent it from going in the goal only when the attempt to deny the goal is successful.
If a goal is scored, the penalty is now a caution, Yellow. Previously, a player was disqualified,
Red, for trying to stop a goal from being scored, whether the try was successful or not.


TAKING PENALTY KICKS

The other change approved by the committee involves the taking of a penalty kick. If some unusual
situation occurs after the penalty kick is properly taken and before the ball is played or touched by
another player, or before the ball hits the goalpost or crossbar, which necessitates a temporary
suspension in play, the penalty kick shall be retaken. Previously, this would have resulted in a drop
ball.
“As an example, if the ball deflated immediately after a penalty kick was taken and play was
suspended, the player now will have the opportunity to re-take the penalty.”



SECTION-XI THUNDER & LIGHTNING POLICY

With the possibility of thunderstorms in the forecast ...
below is a reminder of the Section XI Thunder and Lightning Policy.

SECTION-XI CONTEST INTERRUPTION & THUNDER/LIGHTNING POLICY

1. Whenever weather or other conditions cause the official(s) to interrupt a contest, the
official(s) shall make every reasonable effort to resume and complete the contest, with
full consideration of the weather and site conditions (as they affect safety and playing
conditions). The official(s) shall wait a minimum of 30 minutes from the time of the
interruption before considering the cessation of play.
2. When thunder is identified at the site of an outdoor contest, the official(s) will suspend
play immediately and wait a minimum of 30 minutes from the time of the interruption
before considering the cessation of play. The official(s) will then make a decision whether
to cease play for that day or resume the contest.
3. If lightning is observed at the site of an outdoor contest by the official(s) 15 or fewer
minutes prior to the scheduled start of that contest, the official(s) and the responsible
school authorities shall not permit that contest to be played on that date.
4. If lightning is observed at the site of an outdoor contest by the official(s) during the
playing of the contest, the official(s) shall immediately cease play for the day. The rules
of the particular sport shall determine whether the contest is "official" or must be resumed
at a later date.


   Regular Season Suspended Games   
   In the event a game must be suspended because of conditions which make it impossible  
   to continue play and less than half of the game has been played, the game will be rescheduled  
   from the start. If half or more of the game has been played the game is considered complete.

In Loving Memory ... Sean Urda

ScholarshipLogoOn January 26th, 2015, in his senior year at John Glenn High School, 
Sean Urda tragically lost his life in a sledding accident. He was one of 
those special people who lived every day as if it were his last. He knew 
that a smile made a difference and laughter could warm your heart. 
He touched everyone he came in contact with in some special way. 
“Work hard, play hard” is a phrase that applies to the way Sean lived his life. 
He was always aiming higher, working his way to become the best, whether 
in school, on the field, or in life. Above all else Sean loved his family, friends 
& soccer and he was loved by all in return.

This scholarship has been established to honor the memory of a very special 
young man who accomplished in 17 years what would take a lifetime for others.
These scholarships will be awarded to HS Seniors, who exemplify the traits

Gary Smith
In Loving Memory ... Gary Smith

Gary Smith
   The man known in many quarters as the Johnny Appleseed of Long Island soccer has passed away. Gary Smith, who planted the seeds that kick-started four programs at three distinct different levels — high school, junior college and four-year college, has died. He was 74. Smith passed away Sunday. “Gary was an outstanding person and great friend to Suffolk County soccer,” a Suffolk County Soccer Coaches Association statement said. “The SCSCA sends their deepest sympathies to his son Neal Smith and entire Smith family.” The SCSCA large school playoff game MVP award is named after Gary’s father, Huron Smith. A service for Smith will be held at the Riverhead United Methodist Church Saturday at 10 a.m. The church is located at 204 East Main Street in Riverhead, N.Y. In lieu of flowers, the Smith Family is asking for donations, in Gary’s name, to the American Kidney Fund.
   Smith’s remarkable journey and influence on soccer in Suffolk County began at East Islip High School in 1965, continued at Commack South High School in 1969, moved to Suffolk Community College West (Brentwood) in 1983 and before finally settled at St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue in 1986. He retired from soccer at the end of the 2011 season. In a story for BigAppleSoccer.com in 2011, Smith admitted he hadn’t thought about his influence of hundreds of young men over nearly five decades. “It’s been quite a run to have been a part of four pretty successful programs,” he told this writer. “I’ve had the full range of experience during the years.” In 2011 Smith put the finishing touches to a remarkable career, completing his St. Joseph’s tenure with an appearance in the ECAC playoffs. Smith, who was 69 at the time, decided to step down due to health issues. He was not be specific. “I’ve had some health issues in the last couple of years,” he said at the time. “I can’t physically do the kind of things I’ve done. To go any longer it would be selfish. It was a good time to go away.” But not before leaving a giant footprint on LI soccer, just by touching the lives of so many students. “When you get rid of the wins and conference champions, what do you have left? You have left the young people. That’s what matters most to me,” Smith said. “I’ll miss the players the most,” he added. “It is so precious to me.” Smith admitted he was hoping to coach long enough to be around for St. Joseph’s new athletic complex near the school. “It didn’t come to pass,” he said. “I figure I led the college up the road to it.” St. Joseph’s athletic director Don Lizak realized what he and the school had in 2011. “It is never easy to say goodbye to an old friend and a great coach,” he said. “Gary Smith has done so much for SJC and all of the student-athletes that have passed through his programs. We celebrate his accomplishments and are grateful for his 26 years of service and dedication. We wish him happiness and good health in the years to come.” Given his background, it should not be all that surprising that Smith would create four soccer programs. After all, his father Huron started the boys’ soccer program at Sayville High School in 1956. “At that time, you could count the number of high schools playing soccer on one hand playing on Long Island,” Smith said. “It has been night and day,” he e added about the quality and quantity of programs. “I’ve seen the evolution of it.” And more importantly, he had been a vital part of the evolution of the game.
   Smith did not play soccer until he was a senior at Patchogue-Medford High School. He fell in love with the sport and played it at SUNY-Albany. He earned his masters degree and wound up working at East Islip High, which was known as a football power. So, starting a soccer program from scratch — a sport that was essentially foreign to most youngsters — was a challenge and a half. The birth of the Long Island Junior Soccer League was a year away and the kickoff North American Soccer League was three years away. So, Smith would go into the East Islip cafeteria on a unique recruiting trip, trying to convince students and aspiring athletes “that wearing short pants against wearing shin guards was something they wanted to do,” he said. “The recruiting aspect was difficult because you can recruit only in your own district.” Smith went on to begin programs at Commack South and SCC. Dealing with students at the junior college level was unique because “some of the kids were academically challenged.”
   In 1986, he joined the faculty at St. Joseph’s in Patchogue, N.Y., where he stayed for 26 years, establishing men’s and women’s soccer programs and the women’s softball programs. “We were starting brand new,” Smith said. “There were no dorms. We’re a community school. You’re not going to recruit 100 percent, but 15 percent. You have to know what you’re dealing with.” St. Joseph’s is a Division III school, so the blue-chip prospects usually attend Division I and sometimes Division II schools. Smith learned quickly. He compiled a 317-197-23 record in soccer, including a 13-9-0 mark in his final season in 2011. The Golden Eagles won two Skyline Conference championships and the Hudson Valley Athletic Conference crown on five occasions and were the NAIA District 31 champions once. St. Joseph’s captured the Skyline regular-season title with a 9-0 mark, but lost in the tournament final to SUNY-Maritime, 2-1, denying them an NCAA Division III berth. Instead, St. Joseph’s participated in the ECAC Division III men’s championship, dropping a 4-0 decision at Rutgers-Newark in the first round Nov. 11. On Oct. 22, 2011 St. Joseph’s honored Smith for his accomplishments and longevity with a post-game celebration. Smith admitted he was taken aback. “To establish a program and to be one of the most successful college programs here, to stand in a room with 200 people applauding you, it is unbelievable, overwhelming,” he said. “So many people give you credit. How many people work their tail off or years and years not get recognition for the job they do.” NBC sports announcer Bob Costas, a Commack South graduate, was manager of one of Smith’s teams. He could not attend the celebration, but sent a video from the Major League Baseball studios that was shown at the party. “He was such a character,” Smith said. “He said, ‘I can’t play soccer. I might as well do something.’ ” Smith gave credit where it was due — his wife, Paula, for putting up with Saturdays and week nights directing the Golden Eagles. “Not many people have coached as long as I have coached,” he said. “My wife has been very supportive of me. You don’t do this without support. She has been a coach’s widow. “I know no man is an island. You can’t do it by yourself.” And that meant his staff as well. Tim Trava, his assistant for the past six years, took over the program for the 2012 fall season. Trava, a 2003 St. Joseph’s graduate, led all Division III players in scoring and was an All-American. Starting in 2012, Smith and his wife had the fall off — for the first time since the mid-sixties. Smith said they were considering going on a cruise. “I couldn’t go anywhere because I had soccer going on,” he said. Smith, who liked to keep active, admitted he hadn’t decided what he wanted to do in retirement. “Maybe I’ll volunteer somewhere,” he said, “maybe at an animal shelter.” “I’ll miss it. I’ll probably not miss it until 2012. You don’t do anything this long without missing it. . . . You can’t go on forever. This is the right time to do it.” Even for the tireless Johnny Appleseed of Long Island soccer.
Michael Lewis
