Big Island HYSA summer – grAssroots Coaching course



Reminder, all coaches in Big Island HYSA must be certified within a year of starting to coach to be listed as a coach on a roster (otherwise they will be listed as a team manager and not a coach).
We are offering two in-person coaching classes during the summer of 2022.  The in-person 9v9 and 11v11 classes will be held with Coach George Kuntz from Cal State Fullerton.  You can take the 4v4 and 7v7 classes online at any time throughout the year.  At least one of the 7v7 or 9v9 classes and the 11v11 module are required to be eligible for a D Licensing class.  So, please get your coaches registered for these classes so that they are eligible to upgrade their licensing when we offer the next D licensing class. Here are some simple instructions for registering for the coaching classes:
2.  Create an account if you do not have one already.
3.  Click on the “Coaching Education” link.
4.  Then click on “Course List”
5.  The 11v11 registration appears and you can follow the instructions from there to register for that course.
6.  For those of you who want to take the 9v9 course as well, please click on the 9v9 courses and then click on “Course List” in the top right corner.  You will then see a registration link appear next to the in-person 9v9 class.  Follow the instructions.
The in person field sessions will be TBD:
You will need to do a substantial amount of pre-course work online prior to taking the class.  Please follow all instructions when you register and make sure you complete all steps; otherwise, you will not receive your certification.

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.

 Division, Game and Field Specifications


Big island HYSA Rules and Regulations

Coaches should become familiar with both the BI-HYSA Rules and Regulations as well as the HYSA Team Manual.

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.

Rescheduling/Game Changes

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.
