As most of us have already heard, the International Football Association Board (IFAB) released a new edition of the Laws of the Game that became effective June 1, 2016. The release by IFAB has gotten a lot of exposure in the press and internet but the reality is there are very few changes that will effect AYSO youth matches. That said, as dedicated coach and referee volunteers, we want to familiarize ourselves with the changes before our next practice or game.
AYSO National is conducting a series of webinars to aid training and the fall Upper Division Coach and Referee meetings will address the new edition. If you want to get a jump on that training, take a look at the following link. It has a lot of good information and will be updated as additional questions are asked and answered.
I apologize, yet again, I am on V5, with all the changes.
I am hoping that this is near as it can be, a couple of field changes, time changes, nothing to much to write home about.
BUT- Please check your schedule often as you can see it is a moving target!!!
This past weekend in Cathedral City, Section One hosted the State Games. On Saturday it was league playoffs, we were represented by Region 60, Alhambra GU14 team, they made it all the way to the Championship game, and were beat out in overtime. Congratulations girls.
On Sunday it was the All-Star championships, we were represented by two Pasadena teams, they won at the Section One playoffs moving on the the State Games. They were BU10 team coached by Daryl Topalian and BU14 team coached by Mike Shintaku.
Well a huge Congratulations go out to both teams as BOTH teams finished as the State Champions, very exciting. Thanks to all those who went out and supported these teams, the Referee crews especially who have to go out and cover games on behalf of Area 1C.
