A Change to State Cup Rules for U12 Teams

There has been a change to the continuity rules for the U12 age group. In order to keep aligned with the Regional Rules for the National Championship Series, VYSA has made a change to the numbers of players needed for roster continuity for U12 teams. The new rule will state that all U12 rosters must maintain a continuity of 7 players from the league roster to the State Cup Roster. In the past this number was 9. Recognizing the smaller size of the U12 roster and the rules for the Region 1 Championships, the VYSA Board of Directors voted to change this number on February 23, 2015. The State Cup Rules will be updated to reflect this change.

Fees Due for Regional Competition by June 1, 2015

State Cup champions or any wild card teams should be aware of the following fees. The State Champion (or selected team) that proceeds to the Regional competition will be required to pay the Regional entry fee and a prorated share of the referee subsidy.

The Regional entry fee for the National Championship Series is $475.00 for the U13-U19 age groups and $275.00 for the U12 group.  The subsidy per referee that VYSA sends to Regionals is $225.00. We send approximately 18 referees and assessors. 

This year each U12 State Champion or wildcard will send a check of $500 and each U13-U19 State Champions or any wild cards will send a check for $700.

The money will be payable to VYSA no later than June 1. You may also pay your fee by credit card. (preferred method) Paid by check, please make your payment payable to VYSA. Paid by credit card, please call the State Office to pay.

When a Player or Coach is Ejected/Red Carded
He/She Must Serve a Sit Out
If a player plays or a coach coaches in a game when the Sit Out was owed, at a MINIMUM, the TEAM will FORFEIT the match. 
The responsibility for knowing if a sitout is needed is on the player, coach and TEAM.   

Coaches/Managers are strongly urged to check with ALL of their players, especially those added to the team since they last participated in Cup play.  Ignorance of this rule or failure to remember an ejection will not be grounds to contest match forfeiture. 
Laminated Player Passes are Required
It has come to the attention of the Cup Committee that there are still questions about laminating player and team official passes. This is required.
  • Passes in plastic pouches that are not sealed or in plastic pockets in a notebook will not suffice.
  • Each pass must be sealed by lamination.
  • Please bring only laminated passes for each player and team official to the match.
Questions About Weather and State Cup Games

 Your team must make sure that the manager or team point of contact checks the State Cup web page for updates.

We will try to call too, but that will be the last thing on our notification list.  As soon as we know if a field is closed we will post it on the webpage.  All teams should be in cell phone contact with each other and must make sure that we have the cell phone number for the point of contact for the team.
 
We will only post fields that are closed or have a field number changeCheck before you leave for your game if you feel the weather will cause a problem.
 
We of course can’t be looking into a crystal ball to see what the weather will be like today during the day.  If we start the day on a field, we will play the games unless a club, park authority, town,etc, closes a field or a referee calls off the games.
