With only a couple games left in the regular season, I wanted to remind everyone that every game is for the kids to enjoy. Win or Lose, it is everyone's responsibility to make it the best for all the players on both teams.

Players make mistakes, Coaches make mistakes, and Referees make mistakes so when it happens (it will in every game), do not focus on the mistake.  Find a way to keep it fun for the players.  SMILE!  IT IS ONLY A GAME FOR KIDS!!!!!!!!!


Quartz Hill AYSO is looking for several people to help fill our regional board. Our goal is to have every board member only hold one position and every position have an assistant.

Individuals need to be willing to be trained for free.

If you are interested in helping this great region, Please contact me, Jack Rust at coachrust@gmail.com.

With the regular season coming to an end, I would like to thank all the hard working volunteers that make this region the best!!!!!!!!!!! Without you there would be no Quartz Hill AYSO.
Please think about being one of the ones who make it possible.

Players play!!!   Run around - Have fun - Make their own decisions!


Coaches coach!!!  Set the line up - Motivate the players - Let them play the game.


Parents cheer!!! For all the players on both teams. "Way to go" Great Play" Nice Shot" "What a pass"

We have scheduled an additional Make-Up Picture day for Sunday, Nov. 4th, 2:00-3:00pm at Lower Joe Walker, Field #1.  Any player that has not yet had their picture taken this season should show during this time, dressed in full uniform.

Photographers will leave promptly at 3:00pm so please arrive no later than 2:45pm.  Any questions concerning make-up pictures should be directed to our picture coordinator, Tracey Hill, at traceyhill55@yahoo.com.

Coach Corner Spining Ball

Hello Coaches,


Post season play is right around the corner and it's a good time to make sure your team is practicing kicks from the mark.  Make sure you understand the regional playoff rules; I have provided these again this week.
The all-star meetings will be held from Nov. 5th through Nov. 8th at the Mayflower Gardens Community Room II which is located within the Mayflower Gardens retirement community at the corner of Ave. M and 65th street.  The scheduled times for each division are provided below.


all star meeting



Region 638 Playoff Rules

Regional playoffs will be starting in few weeks with the opportunity for teams to move on to Area play.  So I thought it a good idea to post the playoff rules, these are also provided in the coaches handbook in Section 19.

At the conclusion of the regular season, the top teams in each division pool (U10-14) will participate in playoffs. Playoff winners will represent the region at Area playoffs, which are held in January.
Both coaches and assistant coaches must be licensed at the age-appropriate level, certified in Safe
Haven, and registered as a volunteer in order for the team to play at Area level and beyond.

Although very rare, serious misconduct may result in another team taking their place. Playoffs are a fun, exciting, and challenging way to end the season, and help us to reward those teams that show improvement over the course of the season. The best teams at season's end are not always the teams with the best record!


If there is a tie for first place at the end of the season, or there is a tie for the last playoff spot, a single game playoff will be used to break the tie. Such games are scheduled for Sunday after the regular season, or the week prior to the playoffs. All other ties are settled by (1) head-to-head records (2) goals allowed (3) sportsmanship score (4) goals scored (5) referee points (6) a flip of the coin, in that order.  


1. All games will be conducted exactly as a regular season game unless the score is tied at the end of regulation play.   


a. Normal substitution and player participation requirements are in effect, including goalkeeper participation and ¾ rule.   


b. Game time and team size remain the same.   


2. If the game is tied at the end of regulation play, the following procedure will be used to determine a winner.   


a. Extra time consisting of two complete equal periods (U10 = 5 min. ea.; U12 & U14 = 10 min. ea.). If a team is leading at the end of this period, that team wins the match.


b. If the match is still tied, kicks from the mark in accordance with the "Procedures to Determine the Winner of a Match" in the Laws of the Game (LOTG) will be used to determine the winner.   


3. Procedures for extra time periods.   


a. Teams field the same number of players as during regulation play.  


b. Teams may field players at their discretion. (AYSO and Region 638 participation requirements only apply to the two regulation halves).   


c. Overtime is begun with a coin toss IAW Law 8. Play is stopped at the end of the first half to switch sides, substitute, and restart with the appropriate kick-off.   


d. Substitutions will only be made in the case of injury or during the overtime half.   


e. Only those players on the field at the end of the extra time period may participate in kicks from the mark.   


4. Summary of LOTG procedures for kicks from the mark  


a. Determining a winner:  


i. Kicks from the penalty mark are taken by one team and then the other team. An initial group of up to five pairs may decide the match if, after the fifth pair, one team has scored more goals than the other team.   


ii. At any time in this first set of five pairs, the taking of kicks is completed if it becomes impossible for one team to equal the number of goals scored by the other team.   


iii. After the fifth pair, the teams take kicks from the penalty mark one pair at a time. The procedure ends if, after any pair, one team has scored a goal and the other team has not.   


iv. No player from the same team may take a second kick from the penalty mark until all players on the team (including the goalkeeper) have kicked.   


v. Once all players have taken a kick, the original kicking order need not be repeated .  


b. Procedures:   


i. Assistant Referees note on their cards the eligible players and the kicking

order (see 3.e. above).   


ii. The referee selects the goal to be used.   


iii. Only players may enter the field. Teams will remain near the half line on their side of the field in the center circle with the AR.   


iv. A coin is tossed (visitor calls) and the winner of the toss decides which team kicks first.   


v. Only the referee, an assistant referee, the kicker, and both goalkeepers are allowed near the goal. (The other assistant referee stays at the half with both teams.) All others must remain at the half line.   


vi. The other goalkeeper must wait at the intersection of the penalty area line and the goal line.   


vii. The assistant referee stays on the point where the goal area boundary line meets the goal line, opposite the referee, and serves as a judge to determine if the ball has completely crossed the goal line.   


viii. The referee ensures both the kicker and keeper are ready then signals for the kick with a whistle.  


ix. For the kicker and defending goalkeeper, the Laws are the same as for a penalty kick. However, once the kick is taken, no one other than the defending goalkeeper can play the ball.   


x. The referee must ensure a thorough record is kept of kicking order and goals.

U06/U08 Soccer Drill of the Week


Jam-Packed Soccer Dribbling Drill  



To begin this drill, create a circle with disc cones that is approximately 20 yards in circumference. Make sure each player has a ball, and instruct them to line up around the outside of the circle. 


Have the players begin the soccer drill by dribbling around the outside of the circle all in the same direction. The coach should inform the players to listen for certain queues and perform those actions once the coach shouts the command. These commands are: 

* JOG - players should dribble at a comfortable speed
* FULL SPEED - players should dribble at their top speed
* CUT - players should cut the ball in the other direction and travel in the other direction around the circle

* CROSS - all players should cut across the grid avoiding contact with other players or other players balls. 

Think of other commands to add to the drill. 


Coaching Points

* Since all 4 players should be entering the center area at the same time make sure players are looking ahead of them with their head up.
* Remind players to keep the ball close when entering the traffic area.
* Have players start playing with their arms up and out for balance and shielding
* Instruct players to dribble with both feet and all parts of the foot.

* This is a fun soccer drill, so make sure to HAVE FUN!  



U10/U12/U14 Drill of the Week   


Circle Passing Overlap Combination

Circle Passing Overlap Combination  


1. Create a circle around two central players where the outside players are about 5-7 yards from each other.

2. The two central players will begin the drill with a soccer ball.


1. The central players begin the drill at the same time by passing to outside players on the opposite sides of the circle.

2. The outside player immediately passes to a player adjacent to them on their right or left.
3. Make sure the central player maintaines his central positioning.
4. As soon as the outside player passes to the player to the right or left, they immediately begin their run to overlap that player.
5. The player being overlapped quickly returns the ball to the central player who plays into the space of the overlapping player.
6. The overlapping player switches roles with the central player and the play continues.
7. Leave it up to the players to decide whether to play to the left or right side of the outside player based on whether the player is being used by the other central player.
8. Players must play with their heads up scanning the field and communicating so that two balls do not get played to the same player.

Coaching Points 

* Quick movement off the ball to overlap the outside player. Timing is important so make sure the players are aware of getting there at the right time. A breakdown in passing will throw off a well timed overlapping run.

* Play in 1 touch.
* Good crisp passes with good pace on them - not too soft or to strong.
* Heads up scanning the field to find the open players
* Play with speed. Start slow and once they figure it out, ramp it up.
* Make sure central players maintain the central position until switching with the outside player in order to play facing the ball. If they get in too tight there will not be much time to play the ball.  

Crazy Referee
 Referee Corner 

Last Saturday we dropped to 89 % of our referee spots signed up for with trained referees!  Our coverage slipping more, but I sincerely hope that trend will be reversed this week.  Please realize that the referee points system is only an incentive so that we can get referees on all our games; it was never intended to be the only reason to referee.  Every week we have 150 to 170 referee spots to fill; all with volunteers who really only get paid with the satisfaction of knowing they are helping their community.

Top Youth U8 Referee Contest

Our contest to see which Youth referees can do the most U8 games has the battle for top spot continuing among Brendan, Jose, Avalon and Christiaan.  Prizes will be awarded at our annual volunteer appreciation night. Please be respectful to these youth referees stepping into leadership roles.

Brendan 18
Jose 15

Top 25 QHAYSO Referees

These referees are our addicts, many of who are just doing this because they enjoy the challenge of refereeing a youth soccer game.  Please think twice before yelling at any of our referee volunteers who give so much because they respect the game and want to be a positive force in our community.  Every year we lose one or two of our workhorse refs and every year a new addict or two joins our ranks.  However, we also lose so many refs who have one bad experience with an ungrateful sideline and decide to never referee again.  Try to run a mile in our shoes before complaining about our efforts!

QUESTION 1) A referee steps into the middle of his first U12 match after successfully working several U10 games. A longer game, on a bigger field with more skilled players presents a new and exciting challenge. In the first half he correctly runs a 30 minute period of play. After the halftime break is over, and forgetting that the U12 game is longer than in U10, he accidently only runs a 25 minute half before he signals the end of the game by blowing the whistle three times. He is informed of his mistake and confirms the error with his assistant referee (who is also his backup timekeeper). What should he do?


ANSWER 1) The fair thing to do is obvious. The U12 players are supposed to get 2-30 minute halves of soccer regardless of the score. But the referee has blown his magic whistle three times - is this significant? Of course not; there is nothing in the Laws of the Game about blowing a whistle three times. However, Law 7 "The Duration of the Match" calls for 2 equal halves. Has this kind of mistake ever been made before? Probably not during a World Cup match, but in Youth Soccer of course it has. I know for fact that I did it once, and without even knowing the exact language of the Law I knew that I should call the teams back to finish the game, and that is what I did. Furthermore, in the USSF Advice to Referees it is explicitly stated:


"7.3 MISTAKEN ENDING.  If the referee ends play early, then the teams must be called back onto the field and the remaining time must be played as soon as the error is detected." 


It also prescribes how the game should be restarted:


If the ball was out of play when the period was ended incorrectly, then play should be resumed with the appropriate restart (throw-in, goal kick, etc.). If the ball was in play, then the correct restart is a dropped ball where the ball was when the referee incorrectly ended play.


QUESTION 2) The aforementioned game continues and we are now in the final minute of the game. The referee calls a direct free kick foul that occurs in the penalty area, which results in a Penalty Kick. While setting up to take the penalty kick the referee looks at his watch and realizes that time has now expired. What should he do? Blow the whistle 3 times to signal the match is over or should he extend the time for the match?


ANSWER 2) The foul occurred during regulation time, so it would seem that the fair thing to do would be to complete the Penalty Kick regardless of how much time passes by. But time has expired, what do the Laws of the Game allow for?


Law 7 "The Duration of the Match" has an answer that specifically states:


If a penalty kick has to be taken or retaken, the duration of either half is extended until the penalty kick is completed.


Incidentally, PDF files of the Laws of the Game and the Advice to Referees can be found on the referee page of our QH AYSO website. If you have any questions about refereeing, or an idea to use in one of these "tests" please do not hesitate to contact me.

 Kids Zone® Reminder


Unique Program Promotes Sideline Cheerleaders


In AYSO, fans are asked to be cheerleaders, not critics. Kids Zone® is a unique program that includes a parent pledge that moms and dads sign to commit to positive, encouraging behavior when they're watching the games. It also includes signs, buttons and other game-day reminders.

Soccer is a player's game. Players learn the game by trying new things, making mistakes and trying again. Sideline critics who scream instructions at players or criticize referees or coaches just slow down the learning process and make it less fun for everyone.

Negative, even violent, behavior of players, coaches and parents involved in youth sports has become almost epidemic in the U.S. Kids Zone® is a proactive effort to counteract this trend.

Thanks so much for your help!!



No Smoking Sign


QH AYSO is a Kids Zone which, among other things, means we have a strict no smoking policy.  Please refrain from smoking at any field or area that is utilized by QH AYSO  - this includes the parameter of the parking lots where children may be walking by.  If a child can see you, you are in a location where you are not allowed to smoke.



Thank you for your cooperation!


Each week as the games come to an end, our fields and the surrounding areas are littered with TRASH!  We need to show respect for ourselves and our community and not leave our trash behind!   Before you leave to go home and enjoy the rest of your weekend, please make sure that our fields, the parking lot, and the roads where we park are clean!  If you are the last game of the day please make sure to pick up any trash still remaining and also return any AYSO trash cans to the snack bar area or pick up location for your field.

Together we can keep our fields and our community clean!

No Cleats

on the

To all Parents, Coaches, and Players:

Please do not run on the Joe Walker track while wearing cleats!  This can cause severe and costly damage to the track which QH AYSO will be responsible for repairing.


Thanks for your cooperation!

No Pets


As in previous years, Quartz Hill AYSO will continue this season to observe the No Pets Allowed policy.  Pets are not allowed at any practices or games at any field anytime, with the exception of service animals.  This rule is for the safety of our children, families, and pets.  Please make sure to let anyone know who is coming to support your player of our policy.  Anyone with a pet will be asked to leave the field and the game will be stopped until they have complied. 


If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact our Safety Director, Steve Deplazes, at 785-840-7256.

Thank you for your cooperation.


Lost and Found
Looking for a lost ball, gym bag, or even a set of keys?  Come by the Snack Bar at JW/LP and take a peek at our Lost and Found - your lost item might just be in there!

Only two more weeks - after that all items in the Lost and Found will either be donated or discarded.
Quartz Hill AYSO would like to thank our Sponsors for the 2011 Season!   The donations from our sponsors allow QH AYSO to provide soccer scholarships and help to keep our registration fees affordable so that everyone can play. It is clear that without the generous support of businesses and individuals, Quartz Hill AYSO Region 638 could not continue to offer our children such a well-rounded soccer program at such an affordable price.  We thank our wonderful sponsors for their support and ask our players and their families to support these sponsors whenever possible in return!
