Lineup Card Reporting, the Sequel

by Scott Davis on April 1, 2016

To all YDP Coaches and Referees, thank you so much for what you are doing for the kids.

As you should know, Area 1C is trying a new method for collecting Lineup card information for the YDP season.  That is, the referee team takes a photograph of both sides of both cards and emails those photos to the YDP Division Coordinator.  We had mixed results for the 3/19,20 weekend, so, we’re going to make some tweaks to the plan as follows:

  • For Upper Division games, the referee will take a picture of the cards and email them to Peter Smock at using the subject line format of Date, Division, Regions (e.g. 3/20, BU16, R13 v R2)  Remember, if the photos are not readable (in focus and legible) they have not been sent in.  Score reports should still be made on Arbiter.
  • For U14, U12 and U10 games in both Blue and Red Flights, the Team Referee(s) from the prior game Home Team will be responsible for taking the pictures and emailing the cards to the appropriate coordinators (shown below) using the format given above. If the cards are not submitted, the Home Team Referees will be charged with a Missed Assignment, even if they were at the game.  Again, if the photos are not readable (in focus and legible) they have not been sent in.  This will supplement the coaches’ required score reports.
  • Any retained ID cards should be mailed to Marco Quezada at 787 W. Woodbury Rd. #11, Altadena, CA 91001

I am sorry to have to play the Missed Assignment card, but the results from the first weekend were not good – less than 60% cards turned in and many photos not readable.  If you still have those lineup cards, please photograph them and send them in

If you have any questions, please contact me.  As always, thanks for your cooperation.

AYSO VIP Program

by Jane Mason on October 30, 2014

How many programs in this Nation include everyone, we are very lucky that we have a VIP program, so everyone can fit in to this great sport we play.

A coaches account: It is not always about the win, it is the experience as a coach that we can give.

VIPHanoz Kateli I have a player with autism on my U-12 soccer team and I am very proud to be his coach. The kid gives his best every single practice and game. Two weeks ago, I had one of the best moments in my coaching career when he scored a goal from the 18 yard line. Way to go kid !!! You make me and every player on our team proud.

One of our Philosophies – Positive Coaching

by Jane Mason on October 7, 2014

Watch and listen to this video, positive coaching is important for many reasons, and I think we could all do with a reminder from time to time.

We have a Zero tolerance policy, but if we could spin everything in a positive, what an awesome experience we all would have.
