A Message From CYS Board of Directors

House League Coaches
This email is to inform you that Cambridge Youth Soccer Club will be proactive in regard to abuse of referees by coaches, players and spectators. CYS needs to take action to continue to ensure there is an adequate number of qualified officials to officiate soccer games and provide a positive experience for all referees and youth players registered into the House League system.

Abuse is not limited to insulting and disparaging language directed to toward a game official. It can include and is certainly not be limited to the following: judgment of decisions, criticism of decisions, insulting the official's decisions, undermining decisions they have made, audibly disputing calls, making disparaging comments, condescending remarks and gesturing in an attempt to dispute calls.

In light of the recent events surrounding the deaths of game officials in the United States and the Netherlands, and the consistent levels of assault weve seen in Ontario, we need to look at the abuse of officials very seriously. Over the past few weeks police have been called because of incidents involving teams from Waterloo and Kitchener. CYS have also received reports of referees being verbally abused by coaches and parents within our club.

Cambridge Youth Soccer has invested a lot of resources into our Referee Mentor Program. Referee Mentors are able to watch young officials in both House League and Rep game situations and offer their guidance during pre-game, half-time and post-game discussions.

CYS is working very hard to have officials enjoy the game and learn the skills of officiating soccer. Please be aware that many of these referees are young players in our club who play House League or Travel soccer.

Without referees we would not have a game with a full complement of game officials. CYS, like many soccer clubs across the country, does not have enough adult referees to officiate all House League games. Every year CYS offer a referee course, but only 1 or 2 adults register to attend.

Please see the link below and ask yourself........Would I want my child , husband or wife to have to deal with this as a Referee?
http://espn.go.com/videohub/video/clip?id=9386913&categoryid=2378529

Please understand that CYS has a Zero Tolerance Policy in regard to any abuse of our on-field game officials. This season has seen numerous incidents of violence in youth soccer, and the escalation of these incidents is very discouraging as the LTPD model is introduced across the country.

To show our commitment to Zero Tolerance, CYS has advised all referees assigned to officiate games to leave the field is a coach or parent in any way make the referee feel threatened or fearful during the course of the game.

Sincerely
Manny Rodrigues Junior House League Director
Joseph Ingram Senior House League Director

CYS House League Soccer is a Headband friendly Club

There has been some inconsistency (in recent years) from CYS House League Referees regarding Headbands i.e. at the start of a game some referees will ask players to remove headbands while others say nothing ? further some referees stating FIFA and OSA rules prohibit headbands other saying it was ok.

CYS with CYS Head Referee John Barrie has informed all House League Referees and that headbands are permissible (1 inch width maximum)

Please see attachment from the OSA: Click Here
Headbands that are acceptable and NOT acceptable.

Headband Function
Headbands could serve three functions for soccer players.
1.keep sweat from dripping in a player's eyes
2.minimize the effect of heading the ball on the forehead
3.keep hair out of their eyes

The function that CYS is concerned with is keeping hair out of eyes and further stopping players touching hair when practicing/playing.

Please note the rules for jewelry still stand e.g. earrings, gel brackets, necklaces etc
