Coaching Courses and Development
All coaching courses utilize the USSF Digital Coaching Center. The online coursework and 4v4 module can be done anytime during the year. Modules for 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11 will be offered in mid-June every year and are required for coaching at the level intended for your team.
Coaches on the Technical Side
Only persons having in their possession a valid Risk Management badge issued to them and listed on the printed roster may actively participate with a team during a HYSA sanctioned game or activity. This means that all coaches that will be on the technical side of the field must have completed Risk Management prior to their first game. Be advised it takes a month, if not more, to get your badge.
Maximum Roster Sizes
USSF has given guidelines for the size of rosters based on the small sided game initiative (see Game Specifications Page). These are recommended maximum roster sizes. BIHYSA understands that based on our geography and limited number of clubs and teams in a given area that conforming to these maximums can be challenging, especially at the U8 and U10 age divisions. Please try to conform your team sizes to those prescribed by USSF as best as possible.
Multi-rostering of Players
Multi Rostering will be limited to 3 players for teams with less than 8 players a side, 4 players for teams with 8 to 10 players aside. 5 players with teams playing 11 aside. This limit applies to player’s multi rostered from within the league.
Forfeiting a game
If a team forfeits a game but would still like to engage in a scrimmage, substitute players must have member card present and play in the correct age division. In addition any cards that are issued count towards your season total. There is no fee for forfeiting a game and playing a scrimmage. There is a $50 fee if a team forfeits and does not play a scrimmage. A $75 fee will be assessed for a “no show” to a game.
Voluntary/requested game changes will cost $40 for the team requesting the change after the final schedule is posted on Affinity. There is no requirement for a team to accept a change, and the team requesting the change will only be charged if the change is accepted.
