Coaches Concussion Course Updated 11/30/2017

BAYS now requires that all coaches complete mandatory concussion training prior to coaching in BAYS. This training can be done in the home on any computer. It will take 20 to 30 minutes to complete.  The certification is good for 3 years in BAYS and then must be retaken.

At the end of the training session there will be a list of questions you need to answer and when you are done a certificate will pop up. You type in your name and save the pdf file or you can print it. It is probably wise to do both. Note: once you log out your information will NOT be saved at the CDC site but be saved if you register and use the NFHS website. Registrars will be expected to have these certificates in hand before allowing a coach or assistant to work with their team.

Click HERE for the link to CDC Concussion Training. It takes a moment to come up and then asks for you to input your name prior to starting.

Rescheduling Games Updated 11/30/2017

Often times games need to be rescheduled due to weather or conflicts. BAYS allows for Games to be "pre-poned"or "postponed".  BAYS will charge Teams a Forfeit and PSYL will be charged a fee for all games not rescheduled.


BAYS Rules:

a) All Postponed games in the first half of the season must be made up within (2) Weeks of the original scheduled game

b) All Postponed games in the Second half of the seasons must be made up within (1) Week of the original game.


Steps for a Coach in rescheduling a game:

1. Contact and notify opposing Coach that game will need to be rescheduled. Select a Date and Time that is mutual for both Teams.  Please document if the Opposing Coach is not cooperating.

2. Confirm that FoD is available for the new Date and Time by contacting Ken Dumas. It may be necessary for another PYSL team to move it's own Practice time accommodate the game.

3.  Contact the PYSL Referee Coordinator Mike Cook to change and set up the new Date and Time in the BAYS system and also to arrange for Referee coverage.

4. Keep an email trail of all  communiciations with opposing Coaches regarding the game change

Player Development & Training Goals Updated 2/14/2013

Quote from an experienced, professional Coach with regard to young player Development:

...... "The first thing is, ‘It's me and the ball.' The second is, ‘It's me and the ball and where's the opponent?' Then it's, ‘It's me and the ball, and where's the opponent, where's my teammate?' He's taking on more information. That's how he develops."

It's an over simplication but a good approach to goals that we should set for our players to reach.  These goals speak to  2 simple "F" words:

      • Footwork (dribbling, ball control, ability to pass & shoot)
      • Field Vision (offensively & defensively)

Getting there thru proper drills.  Use the sites listed below on this page, specifically this site: http://www.soccerxpert.com/u6-u8-soccer-drills.aspx to help you find drills online which will help you, help your players get there.

Training Tips:

1. Make practices fun.

2. When conducting drills, it is better to have multiple stations going at once, than have multiple kids standing at one station.

3. Close all practices with a fun game and then a run. 

Coaching Resources Updated 8/14/2013

Coach Code of Conduct (from PYSL Bylaws) Updated 8/28/2012

8.  Coach Responsibilities

8.1  Coaches are responsible for observing as well as enforcing the rules and regulations set forth in these bylaws.

8.2 Coaches are responsible for observing and enforcing the rules set forth in any league, tournament or game in which the team is involved.

8.3  Coaches are ultimately responsible for their own team and spectators. No verbal or physical abuse of any player, referee or parent is allowed at any time. Coaches must adhere to and enforce the no tolerance rules prescribed by BAYS.  Every Coach and Assistant Coach will conduct themselves with the utmost professionalism and sportsmanship at all times. Coaches will encourage players and will never speak disrespectfully to  players on either team, Referees or the opposing team coaches at any time before, during, or after a game.  Coaches will never question a call on the field or speak to the referee in a confrontational or argumentative manner.  Coaches represent Plainville, and  their  actions reflect PYSL and the community overall which  strives to set an example with professional behavior. 

8. 4  Should any Coach be found in violation of  the expectations in Section 8.3  by opposing teams, Referees or parents the Board will review the matter.  If the Board verifies the occurrence of a first offense  but concludes it is not severe, then the Board will, in writing, warn the offending coach and will monitor his or her next two games to ensure that the coach adheres to PYSL expectations on proper behavior. If a second offense occurs with the same coach, that Coach will be immediately removed from his or her coaching position for the rest of the Season.  Should the first offense be found to be severe and in violation of Section 8.3, the Coach will be removed from his or her coaching position for the rest of the season.  Extreme misbehavior could result in a coach being banned from all PYSL activities and fields completely.  Any Coach removed from his or her position will have the right to re-apply as a Coach for the following season.  The Coaches application and future involvement in PYSL will be at the discretion of the Board.

8.5 A coach has the authority to suspend a player from one game for the infraction of any rules or as a disciplinary action used as a means to control the individual. The President of the PYSL must be informed of said suspension as soon as possible. If the coach feels further action must be taken then this can only be done by a Board vote. If necessary, a special meeting of the Board will be called. All parties involved will be invited to attend. A player and/or parent have the right to appeal any suspension to the Board of the PYSL.

8.6 The coach of each team will be charged with finding a suitable assistant coach who will be totally responsible for the team in the coach's absence.

8.7 No team game, practice, or activity can be conducted without an MYSA registered Board member or coach (with a pass card), present.
