YDP Spring


The current Youth Development Program in Area 1C is the culmination of thirteen years of efforts to address the need by some parents and players for a program that allows players to develop their skills to a higher level, and participate in a higher level of play while still adhering to AYSO philosophies and avoiding the high fees and exclusionary philosophies of club programs. The YDP program is offered after the conclusion of the regular season and all-star programs for those players who want more soccer at a more competitive level.

This Season’s Program

For 2016, Area 1C is offering a

Blue Flight– This tier is designed to allow Section and Area All Star teams to continue to play and develop together as a team. Each region may enter up to two teams in Tier 1 of each division. If a region enters two teams in the same division, it must make sure that both teams are balanced. Playoffs will be set per the YDP Rules and Regulations. Due to the timing of the season and the conflicts anticipated with different school spring breaks, each team in the Blue Flight can request a weekend of pool play to go “dark” and not have games.

Red Flight– This tier is designed for individual player development of soccer skills and tactics in a less competitive atmosphere. If a region enters two or more teams in the same division, it must make sure that all teams are balanced. No standings will be kept during pool play and all teams will participate in a Tournament at the end of the YDP season to determine a Champion.

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 peter48geo@yahoo.com 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.
