The current Youth Development Program in Area 1C is the culmination of eleven 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 Seasons Program
For 2014, 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.
Version 3.4 of the YDP referee schedule has been released. Changes from Version 3.3 are highlighted in Bright Green and Yellow.
This spreadsheet gives referee assignments for Team Referees and Region Assigners. Open the spreadsheet and you can filter for your team name in the three referee columns.
Refs-2015 YDP Full Schedule 3.4 (2015-03-28)
Here is how referee coverage is determined for Team Referees:
- U10/U12/U14, both Blue and Red Flights – Home team supplies two referees; away supplies one. If the next game is an Upper Division game, area assigns the referee and the Home team can send someone home.
- Upper Division – Home team and Away teams each supply one AR. Area assigns the referee.
If there are 2 or 3 games in a day on a field, the Team referees from the last game of the day supply referees to the first game, in accordance with the above. If there is only one game or if there are more than 3 games, Area assigns a 3-person crew to the first game. Please note: For games covered by three Team Referees, the designation of who is Referee and who is AR is determined at the field, not based on the spreadsheet.
We are set for this weekend and the schedule has been uploaded to our reporting system.
We will be fine tuning next week, to even out games a little in some divisions, but most of you are set.
Have fun and thank you for your patience.
