$50 FINE FOR WARMING UP IN THE 18 YARD BOX

Under the section titled "League Facilities," the SCSA Operations manual states that there are no warm-ups allowed in the 18 yard box. This rule was established to protect this high-use area from unnecessary wear and tear.  It is not an uncommon rule for soccer complexes and signs have been posted every season as well as routine reminders in coach packets, newsletters, emails, etc.

Because of routine disregard for the "no warm-ups in the 18" rule, SCSA's board of directors has implemented a penalty system that should help encourage teams to discontinue warming up pre-game and during half time in the 18 yard box.

Each team is allowed only ONE warning.

If the team is found to be in violation of this rule a second time, a $50 penalty will be assessed to that team.

Penalties are due within 7 days to the league office. After 7 days, any unpaid fines will automatically put the offending team in bad standing with the SCSA league.

CLUB PASS SYSTEM FOR COMPETITVE TEAMS

NEW CLUB PASS SYSTEM FOR COMPETITIVE TEAMS Effective Fall 2011, SCSA will introduce a new system allowing Club Passes. This concept’s main objective is to allow coaches to move players freely within their own club, based on player development needs and specific team needs. Any U9-U19 competitive team players may use the club pass system.

A club pass roster is only to be used for the purpose of enhancing player development and fielding an adequate number of players in order to play a game. Players can be given the opportunity to play at a more competitive level during the seasonal year on a selective basis. The club pass roster is never to be used as a means to "stack" the team with more skilled players for the sole purpose of bettering the team's chance for victory in league games.

For help in understanding the Club Pass System, please refer to our Documents section for "Club Pass Frequently Asked Questions" and "Club Pass Rules 2011-2012."



REMEMBER "NO CARDS, NO PLAY" RULE
All players U9 & older must present a player card before each game. The cards must have a photograph on it, be signed and laminated. All coaches must also have a signed and laminated coaching pass to present to the referees. Thank you for respecting the referees in this matter.


All Competitive Teams Should Plan to Upload Digital Pictures of Players to Got Soccer

Starting Fall 2013, KSYSA is asking that all competitive teams upload their player pictures into the Got Soccer system under the Team tab. New player cards will print with pictures on the front of the card. Player signatures are no longer required in Kansas.
