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.
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.
- All Postponed games in the first half of the season must be made up within (2) Weeks of the original scheduled game
- 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:
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 simplification but a good approach to goals that we should set for our players to reach. These goals speak to 2 simple "F" words:
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.
