PURPOSE OF THE AYSO NATIONAL GAMES

The National Games ("Games") shall offer an opportunity to bring together different Regions and Sections to share in the diverse soccer culture of the AYSO family. This occasion focuses on sportsmanship, team spirit and making new friends through the activities and events that are offered during this weeklong event. The Games should not be interpreted nor represented as any form of an AYSO national championship.




PLAYER ELIGIBILITY POLICY

To be eligible to participate in the National Games, a player must meet both a registration requirement and a primary program participation requirement. It is the intent of these rules that participants will not join the organization for the express or singular purpose of participating in the National Games and teams will not be formed with any participants thus joining.

Registration requirement

Eligible players must be either:

(1) Registered in eAYSO for the 2012-2013 membership year on or before March 31, 2013 and registered in eAYSO for the 2013-2014 membership year on or before March 31, 2014.

OR

(2) Registered in eAYSO for the 2013-2014 membership year on or before September 30, 2013.

Exceptions to the above registration deadlines are allowed only to the extent that conclusive documentation is provided before April 1, 2014 that the player should have been properly registered by a Region in eAYSO on the required dates. The eligible player list will be frozen in eAYSO as of April 1, 2014 and only those players on the list as of April 1, 2014 will be permitted to play in the National Games.

Conclusive documentation includes verifiable, dated records created at the time of payment that indicate timely payment of registration fees to AYSO.

Participation requirement

To be eligible to participate in the National Games, players meeting the registration requirements must be certified by the Regional Commissioner as having actively participated in a primary program. For purposes of this determination the following definitions shall apply:
  1. "Actively participated in" means playing in at least 50% of the scheduled games of any complete AYSO-approved primary program that begins after January 1, 2013. For this purpose only, a primary program that ends after Sunday June 1, 2014 will be deemed "complete" on June 1, 2014. See AYSO National policy statement 2.2, Participation in Secondary Programs, for allowed special circumstances that would prevent a registered player from completing a program:
    "Special circumstances would include, but are not limited to, an illness; a soccer-related injury; change of address (moved to a new Region); parental custodial rights; conflict with secondary or high school rules of state which prevent the registered player from COMPLETING the primary program; If such special circumstance arises within a Region, the Regional Commissioner must request approval, in writing, from the Area Director and/or Section Director prior to adding the child to a secondary season roster."
  2. "Scheduled games" shall mean games that were scheduled for play at the beginning of the season and available for play (excludes games not available for play due to field closures or similar).

  3. "Primary program" shall mean the entire set of scheduled games (including both parts of split seasons) in a Region for which open registration is held, balanced teams are newly formed and all registrants play. It is acknowledged that some Regions may have more than one primary program under this definition. "Primary programs" include both standard primary and approved EXTRA™ programs.

Each Regional Commissioner, Area Director and Section Director is responsible for ensuring that the spirit of the eligibility rules is honored. Upon the recommendationof the National Director of Tournaments, the AYSO National Board of Directors or its designee, reserves the right to determine and administer any discipline that they deem appropriate should they find that the participation of any team or player violates this intent. Disciplinary sanctions can include, but are not limited to, removing or rejecting the offending team or player from participation in all or any part of the National Games.




TEAM FORMATION POLICY

Team Selection Method

Each Region (or Area if receiving an Area slot) shall determine the method it uses for team formation, provided that each team member is eligible following the rules listed below. All rostered team members must be eligible players as defined above.

A team roster must also include two coaches, each of whom has met the Coaching Requirements described below. Only players and coaches listed on the approved roster may participate in the National Games.

Team Roster Numbers and Player Numbers on the Field
  • The maximum number of team members allowed in U-19 and U-16 will be eighteen and teams will play 11 v 11
  • The maximum number of team members allowed in U-14 will be fifteen and teams will play 11 v 11
  • The maximum number of team members allowed in U-12 will be twelve and teams will play 9 v 9
  • The maximum number of team members allowed in U-10 will be ten and teams will play 7 v 7

U-19 girls teams and boys teams Birthdates August 1, 1994 – July 31, 1997
U-16 girls teams and boys teams Birthdates August 1, 1997 – July 31, 1999

Teams with a mixture of boys and girls are considered to be boys' teams for purposes of the lottery draw and pool placement.

Team Formation Limitations – Regular Flight

  • Each team must be comprised of eligible players from the Region(s) that are age-appropriate for the age division selected in the Lottery Draw. ("Age appropriate" shall be judged solely by a player's birth date and not by the player's primary season division.) All eligible players from the hosting Region MUST have the first opportunity to participate or, if an Area team, only from the Regions stated in the lottery bid.

  • Exception 1: If the selected Region is unable to form a complete team from age appropriate eligible players in the Region's primary program, the Region may, with permission from the Area Director, approach Regional Commissioners from other Regions in their own AYSO Area to seek additional eligible players, which requires each Regional Commissioner involved to sign off on the addendum eAYSO team roster.

  • Exception 2: Extraordinary circumstances might indicate the need to go to a neighboring AYSO Area to find a team member. This requires agreement by each of the Regional Commissioners, Area Directors and Section Director(s) involved as well as permission from the National Director of Tournaments or designee.

  • Exception 3: Team members will be allowed to be added to a team roster not in their age appropriate division only under the circumstances as described in "Playing up.".

Team Formation Limitations – EXTRA™ teams

  • EXTRA teams playing in the separate EXTRA flight must be formed according to the approved EXTRA guidelines that govern a Region's program.

  • Each team must be comprised of eligible players from the Region(s) that are age-appropriate for the age division selected in the Lottery Draw. ("Age appropriate" shall be judged solely by a player's birth date and not by the player's primary season division.)

  • Team members will be allowed to be added to a team roster not in their age appropriate division only under the circumstances as described in "Playing Up."

"Playing Up"

"Playing up" a division by a team member into an older age bracket than his/her birth date indicated in Age Divisions, will be permitted only under one of the following circumstances:
  • Permitted in all of the age brackets provided that the team member played up in the 2013-2014 primary program. Age appropriate team members should be given first priority in the selection process and it is the responsibility of the Regional Commissioner to verify the eligibility of the "younger" team member to be playing in an older age bracket during the Region's primary program. Regional Commissioners must NOT play younger children up for the express or singular purpose of participating in the National Games.

  • A player born between August 1, 1997 and July 31, 1998 may play U-19

  • A player born between August 1, 1999 and July 31, 2000 may play U-16

  • A player born between August 1, 2001 and July 31, 2002 may play U-14

  • A player born between August 1, 2003 and July 31, 2004 may play U-12

  • U-10 may not utilize players who played in U-8 during the primary program

  • "Playing down" in a younger division than the player's age is not permitted.

Team Rosters

NOTE: Reminder: all Regions must utilize their own Region's age-appropriate registered players prior to asking for "exceptions". All team member eligibility will be verified by the AYSO National Office. Falsifying information about eligibility may result in expulsion of a team from the Games prior to its start, or if discovered after the Games commence, forfeiture of games and zeroing out of sportsmanship points for games in which ineligible team members participated.

The Team Roster and the approved Team Roster Exemption Form (to be provided) must be sent together when requested with all appropriate Regional Commissioner, Area Director and Section Director signatures when submitted to the Games committee. The Roster Form and all other required documents will be available on the national Web site at www.ayso.org. Rosters will be due on March 1, 2014. Directions and due dates for roster revisions will be provided to coaches and RCs in February.

Team rosters must be prepared using eAYSO, except that the National Office may grant approval to use an alternate form in the case of special circumstances that can't be handled by eAYSO.

Roster changes, including late roster submissions, after the later of May 15, 2014 or 14 days following a team's acceptance of an invitation to the Games, must be accompanied by an administrative fee of $25 per eligible player or coach added to the roster. Roster changes submitted after June 15 will not be processed until Team Check-in, and may result in significant delays in the check-in process.

For example, if a complete 14-player roster is submitted for the first time after May 15, the administrative fee would be $400 (14 players and 2 coaches x $25 each). If there is a coach change and one player change, the administrative fee would be $50.

There may be a limited number of unaffiliated guest or local players who are available at team check-in; these players will be allocated to teams willing to accommodate them at the discretion of the National Games management. Any such player added to a team's roster will not be subject to the additional administrative fee. There is no guarantee that such players will be available or how many such players (if any) will be assigned to a particular team. Such players will be added from both a highest need and a first come first served bases.




COACH CERTIFICATION POLICY

All AYSO coaches and assistant coaches (hereafter referred to collectively as coaches) who wish to coach in the AYSO National Games must, at a minimum:
  1. Be a registered volunteer in eAYSO for the current AYSO membership year.
  2. Have the new AYSO Safe Haven™ certification.
  3. Have completed CDC concussion awareness training
  4. Be trained per the National Coaching Program Guidelines at the age/skill level of the team they wish to enter/coach. Training must be completed and verified in eAYSO by March 1, 2014.

Following are the required certifications for each of the age levels:

Division Minimum Required Certification
U-10 U-10 Coach (complete course)
U-12 U-12 Coach
U-14 Intermediate Coach
U-16 & U-19 Advanced Coach


Coaches are permitted to be the coach or assistant coach for one team, and one team only.

U-10 Coaches who have taken ONLY the online U-10 course will NOT BE ELIGIBLE to coach. The field portion of that course must also be completed.

Coaches are responsible for checking eAYSO to ensure that all completed courses have been properly credited prior to March 1, 2014.

Each team must have two coaches and only two coaches. Each coach must be 18 years of age or older. These two identified and approved coaches are the only people permitted to coach and to be in the coaching areas on the fields. If a trainer is traveling with a team, he/she is will not be permitted as a substitute coach for any reason and is not allowed in the coaching areas. The coaching area is a marked box located one yard off the touchline and centered on the halfway line. It is the length of the center circle and as wide as 3 yards depending upon the space available. No other persons, except for the assistant referee, are permitted in the coaching area. Coaches, substitutes and spectators are not permitted to enter the field of play unless requested to do so by the referee.

Substitutes, coaches and spectators are to remain on their designated side of the field within the specified areas behind the coaching area during the game. Spectators are to remain in their designated areas, including between the outside edges of each penalty area for the duration of the game and are not permitted to enter the field of play.

Coaches are responsible for their conduct and the conduct of their players, spectators and guests. Only positive, instructional and encouraging coaching is permitted. Negative comments towards their own players, opposing players or the referees will not be tolerated. Such behavior will result in the loss of sportsmanship points and, if serious enough, in the expulsion of a team from the National Games.
