Coach & referee in-service, Saturday, January 18, 2014

posted Dec 22, 2013, 2:48 PM by Davis AYSO Webmaster   [ updated Dec 22, 2013, 2:54 PM ]

Just in time for the Select season: an in-service for coaches and referees on the topic of Offside!

The Offside law leads to some of the most frustrating and widely contended calls, and proper application of this law is critical as it frequently results in goal/no-goal calls.

Referees: how can we get the call right every time, and anticipate tactics used by offside-savvy players?

Coaches: what are the elements in an offside infraction, and how can we use this law to our advantage?

At this in-service, top-notch referee and coach instructors will:

· Present the offside law and how to apply it

· Review offside calls on video…you make the call!

· Discuss tactics teams use to take advantage of this law

· Answer any questions about the application and coaching of the law

Please join us for dinner, prizes, and a chance to hang out with the coaches and referees you meet on the pitch! Let’s build a stronger AYSO team by getting on the same page for this important law of the game…and having fun!

To be held: Saturday, January 18, 2014, 6:30 – 8pm, at the Davis AYSO Building.

Please RSVP to refinstruction@davisayso.org. Food and format suggestions welcome.

Picture day information for Fall 2013

posted Sep 9, 2013, 9:24 PM by Davis AYSO Webmaster   [ updated Sep 15, 2013, 8:33 AM ]

Picture day schedules have been finalized. See the schedule spreadsheet here (updated 9/15/13).

Each team has been assigned a time for their photos. If the team cannot make their assigned time, they should contact the photographer directly at erika@lzphoto.com to arrange a make-up time. When emailing the photographer, they will need to include their scheduled time, the team # assigned by the photographer (listed on the spreadsheet), their AYSO team designation (e.g., U8G-S04), and their requested make-up date and time. The make-up day is October 5, but if there are open time slots on September 21 or 28, they can request those.

If a player misses his or her team photo, the player's parent can contact the photographer directly to set up a time on 10/5 for the photo.

Yellow cards, red cards, and quitting your gym!

AYSO Parents--

Remember that soccer game when your kid got elbowed in the face just before the shot on goal.  How could the referee have missed that? Unbelievable, he was playing keeper! You would have ejected the punk so fast the corner flags would still be rippling from the wind.

Now’s your chance! It may cost you a few hours next week, but you’ll be an AYSO Referee on the first Saturday of this coming Fall Season. There’s a Basic Referee course just for you. Breeze through the 17 Laws and we’ll issue a snappy uniform and whistle.  Easy as that!

Better yet! We’ll also give you two cards – a yellow one for the soft-eyed kids who found your emotional weak spot, and a red one for the incorrigibles who’ve yet to learn about law and order.

Oh, and next time the team parents need a volunteer for some mindless task – they don’t even bother to ask you.  After all, you’re the ultimate volunteer. Think about it, someone in a referee uniform having to help out with the field nets or planning the pizza party. AYSO Referees must have more important tasks on their Saturdays. 

Also, you can stop the monthly dues to the athletic club. No more weekends docked on a treadmill next to one of those 27-year-old hardbodies who keeps glancing at your waistline. Forty-five minutes up and down the field a few times – just enough exercise to burn off the Farmer’s Market croissants.  Who needs to qualify for the next Ironman?

Get details about the Basic Referee Course at our referee training page. It’s broken into two, 4-hour segments.  You can elect to take the first segment online or in a classroom setting. The second segment is only offered in the classroom. This course is oriented towards officiating Under 10 and older games.

Hope to see you out on the pitch!

If you have any questions about referee training, please email us at refinstruction@davisayso.org.
