Coppell Youth Soccer Association - Thursday, May 10, 2012
2012 Ross Stewart Memorial Invitational - Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Dear Directors/Commissioners:

 

On behalf of the North Texas Soccer Cup and Games Committee, we wish to bring your attention to the upcoming Ross Stewart Tournament being held on June 8-10, 2012 in Plano, TX.   Participation in this tournament is by invitation only to teams that have played in the finals of a North Texas State Soccer Association sanctioned tournament between July 2011 and May 2012, and teams that finished in first or second place of a league hosted or run by a single or group of NTSSA member Associations.

As directors/commissioners in your associations, we wish to ask that you remind your coaches of finalist teams in a North Texas tournament and league championship teams this year that they have qualified to play in the Ross Stewart Tournament.  Please let your coaches know about the tournament and how to enter.  All they need to do is just visit the NTSSA website www.ntxsoccer.org and click on the link for the tournament.  This will direct them through the registration process with GOTSoccer.

 

We appreciate all you do for soccer in your community and hope that this event will only add to the excitement of the sport!  Please feel free to contact Brian Rogers (BrianatPYSA@gmail.com) if you have any questions. 

 

Thank you again for your assistance,

Basic Information for your Soccer Moms and Dads

General Information

Shinguards are mandatory for ALL Players.
Cleats or tennis shoes may be worn. Cleats with a toe cleat are illegal and will not be allowed.
Jewelry of any kind may not be worn by a player during a game. This includes earrings.

For all of our team formation, we attempt to keep our teams "age pure". As players enter in the older divisions (U10 thru U19) this becomes more difficult, and many of these divisions are mixed ages, i.e., U10 is actually U9/U10.; U12 is U11/12.  Player soccer age is based on "Soccer Year", Aug 1 thru Jul 31, or simply, the age the player is on July 31st of current soccer year . The next criteria is location. DSA teams are formed using Denton ISD school locations. Of course there are exceptions to these two basic team formation requirements. Age differences can be because of siblings playing on the same team (this is an exception we always try to grant) or because players have requested to Play-Up. School locations differences can be caused by not having enough players from one school and having to combine school locations (we make every attempt to keep players close to their schools), and in any SPRING season, teams folding and combining, players requesting to go in the player pool, Spring Registration fill-ins, etc.

Practice Times and Locations are determined by the Coach.

Your Registration Fees pay for a complete uniform, insurance, NTSSA Fees, referee fees, Denton Parks and Recreation fees, and City of Denton Fees.

 Tips for Getting Organized from Joe Soccer

  Youth Coach Handbook ...

by JoeSoccer.com

 #1 ... HAVE FUN!!

 If you are having fun, the players are surely going to have smiles on their faces!

 #2 ... BE ORGANIZED!!

 Write down your practice plan before practice starts! (Eliminates down time & practice chaos).

 Organize practice as follows: Warm up, Individual Skill Work, Mini Games and end with a scrimmage!

 Setup for the next drill/mini game during the water breaks!

 Organize team parents and assistant coach(es) to help with administrative tasks, practices & discipline problems!

 #3 ... KEEP IT SIMPLE & EXCITING!!

 For youth players "ages 6 - 12", keep the practices and tactics simple and in easy to understand terms!

 When playing mini games and scrimmages at practice, establish names for the teams (ex. Sharks, USA, England, Dinosaurs, etc.) The team name creates unity, competition and brings out the best in your players!

 Use a handful of drills that you & your players enjoy ... no need to spend 15 -20 minutes explaining new drills at each practice!

 Tell the players how long the drill will last or how many goals will win the game. This gives them an objective and keeps them focused on the task at hand!

 #4 ... DEVELOP A TEAM TO-DO LIST!!

 Once you decide on the team to-do list, jot them down and reinforce them throughout the season ... during practice, before games & at half time! Some examples ...

 When the ball comes to a player, his/her options are passing, dribbling or shooting ... no kicking!

 Quick throw-ins.

  Going to and winning loose balls.

 When the player has the ball in the offensive corner, cross the ball in front of the goal.

 When the player sees his/her teammate has the ball in the offensive corner, position him or herself in front of the goal and wait for the cross.

 Communicate (talk to each other)

 #5 ... COACH COMMANDMENTS!!!

  Before the season begins, communicate to the players & parents ...

 Acceptable and unacceptable behavior!

 What to expect from you! (the coach)

 Your expectations of the players!

 Your expectations of the parents!

 Consequences of actions!

  This way everyone follows the commandments or face the consequences!!

 #6 ... CRITIQUING PLAYERS!!!

  Always start with a positive comment and finish up with the constructive critique!

 Use specific examples ... Johnny, remember when you kicked the ball 30 yards up the field, that was a powerful kick but were you passing the ball to anyone or was that a shot? Remember, our to-do list says "we don't kick to kick ... we kick to pass or kick to shoot"!

 

#7 ... GAMES!!!

 Do ... Display good sportsmanship! (You're the role model for your players).

 Do ... Reinforce the team to-do list before the game and during half time!

 Do ... As the game is played, point out situations (to the subs) where players are (and are not) working on the team to-do list! (The game provides great visual pictures and the subs are a captive audience).

 Do ... Use specific game scenarios (and names) when coaching and making changes at half time! (Be positive).

 Don't ... Yell and scream from the sidelines (at players or the Ref).

 Don't ... Try to coach every decision the players are making on the field!

 Do ... Let the kids play and have fun!

 How Can Parents Help?

 

 Sam Snow, Director of Coaching for Louisiana

 Parents of U6 and U8 players play an active part in the enjoyment their children have in youth soccer. Encouragement to try new things is step one. Now that they are out there kicking, running, laughing, falling down and all chasing the ball simultaneously they need positive reinforcement. Many parents during games and sometimes-even practices yell out to the kids what to do and when to do it. They cheer when things go right and sometimes cry out in anguish when they don't. In all they are trying to be positive and help the kids. What many adults have forgotten from when they were 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 years old is that children of those ages can focus on a limited number of tasks at one time. That may continue to be true to a lesser degree for older players too. Indeed it takes all of the attention of an U6 player to control the ball. This is because they are still developing basic balance, coordination and agility. Also in a 4 versus 4 game the odds for the player with the ball are generally 1 versus 7. So during a game the player needs to focus on the task at hand---trying to control the ball. Unfortunately they are distracted by all of the adults yelling from the touchline. Now they have to make a choice, either play the ball or listen to the parents. So the lesson is clear. If parents want to help their team play their best they need to be quiet while watching the game. Just sit back and let the children play!

Shout out to Referees!!! - Monday, October 29, 2012
We received this note over the weekend and I thought it needed to be passed on! Way to go refs!

Hi, Sam,

 

I am a U13 boys coach from GLASA. We had a game on 10/13 at North Lakes ( #2122). From the Center, to the linemen, that was about the finest crew I have seen in many seasons. Fair, in control and all three were involved in the game. The Center was extremely knowledgeable of offsides, advantage and many of the aspects of the game that tends not to be grasped by referees. I appreciated all of their officiating, and positive attitude, and just wanted to pass this along. Thanks.

 

Mike Stopper

Thanks Mike for taking time for a note of encouragement.

Just a few reminders about posting scores for U10 and U12 divisions. Please send the scores to the following email addy dentonsoccerassociation@gmail.com
Winning coaches are responsible for posting scores and to save time all you need to do is put info in the subject area.

ie...  Subject:  U10B Home Team 3 vs Away Team 4

Scores must be reported within 48 hours of game. If we have not received a score within that time frame the score will remain 0 - 0 and will not be posted since that would result in a tie and the awarding of one point.

Thanks,

DSA Executive Board

Hot Weather Guidelines

At times when severe weather affects the area, the following guidelines will be in effect. Since temperatures fluctuate from location to location please check the local weather station closest to you for accurate temperatures.

In addition review your teams' medical information and be aware of all players' medical conditions. While this is general guidance, players and coaches may have undisclosed or undiagnosed conditions that may be exasperated by excessive heat, dehyudration and/or activity. Use extreme caution when training and watch all team members carefully.

  • Temperature ranges are based on the higher of either Ambient Temperature or Heat Index.
  • Ensure you are comfortable with recognizing the signs and symptoms of heat injuries and how to respond to them.
  • Make sure there is another adult available to help with the team in case an emergency arises and EMS needs to be called.
