Tentative 2022 7th Ã¢?? 10th Grade League Details

Logistics: For the 13th year in a row, the Greater Athens Soccer Association (GASA) is forming a league to provide a spring soccer opportunity for 7th Ã¢?? 10th graders. Children who are 15 years of age or younger on June 1st, 2022 are eligible to play.  Note that if you are eligible for the Athens or Alexander K-6 recreational league, you are not eligible for the GASA league.  The tentative schedule for the league is as follows: The tentative plan is to start in mid/late March and finish in early/mid May. There will be an end of the season tournament after the regular season. The exact dates of the tournament will be determined later based on any rescheduling during the regular season due to rainouts. Your childâ??s coach will provide further details and the final schedule after we form the teams. The coach will also schedule the practices. We will encourage each coach to hold two practices a week throughout the season.  Modified FIFA rules will apply. There will be no slide tackling. 

 

League Philosophy:  The focus of the league is participation, sportsmanship, fitness, soccer skill development, and enhancement of player self esteem and interpersonal skills.  Coaches will be instructed to distribute playing time equally and to allow players to try different positions.  After some deliberation, it was decided that we will keep score and standings; nevertheless, the focus is participation and sportsmanship.  This includes all players, coaches, league volunteers and parents.  Should we find that winning is becoming more important than sportsmanship and fairness, we will discontinue keeping score and standings.  Derogatory comments towards the players by coaches, parents or other players will not be tolerated.   Derogatory comments towards the referees by players, coaches and parents also will not be tolerated.

 

Expectations of Players:  All players will be asked to sign a player agreement form.  We anticipate that the players will be cooperative, supportive and respectful of league officials, referees, coaches, teammates and opposing players. In the rare event that this is not the case, the inappropriate behavior will result in the individual being disciplined.  Serious repeated problems will result in player/supervisor/parent meeting and may result in a child being asked to leave for a specific number of weeks. A player who receives a red card, or accumulates multiple yellows, will be suspended from play for a minimum of 1 game.  The league reserves the right to increase the suspension for egregious behavior. 

 

Cost:  The cost is $65 (includes $10 for Athens Community Soccer 2022 membership).  These funds will be used for (a) field rental/creation and maintenance, (b) referees, and (d) uniforms.  We will probably be very close to breaking even.  In the event that we have excess funds, the remaining funds will be used by GASA for community soccer development.

 

What can I do to help?  We are seeking head coaches who have experience playing and coaching soccer.  We welcome parent volunteers to serve as coaching assistants, even if they have no experience.  In addition, we may have parents run the sidelines during the games.  This involves raising a flag when a ball has gone out of bounds and indicating which team touched it last.  It does not involve calling off-sides, which will be handled by the referee.   Parents are encouraged to attend games.  However, coaching kids from the sidelines is not allowed and negative comments will not be tolerated.  Please keep in mind that volunteers are donating their time and making every attempt to provide a positive experience for your children.  Please assist them in achieving this goal. 

 

If you know of a business that would be willing to sponsor a team, please send an email to gasaleague@gmail.com and provide the information on the registration form.  Thanks!
