Quartz Hill AYSO, Region 638 Newsletter September 28, 2013
A WORD FROM OUR COMMISSIONER
We are the largest AYSO region in the Antelope Valley with about 1800 players. We run more games and need more support from everyone. AYSO has great philosophies to support the players. One of them is the Triangle. That triangle has three sides consisting of Coaches, Referees and Parents. All three surround the players for support, encouragement and protection. So remember when you are out on the field to do your best at making every moment the best for every player on the fields. Cheer for both sides and refrain from making comments about the referee's call or lack of one. It is a game for kids so let them play and have fun!!!!!!!!!
In the past years, we have witnessed incidents where coaches and/or spectators questioned the calls of referees requiring referees to stop matches to deal with the situation. There have also unfortunately been incidents once a game has ended when coaches and/or spectators confront referees or other volunteers over decisions made during the game. These incidents prompt me to remind everyone that Region 638 has a long standing, zero tolerance policy prohibiting such behavior. http://www.qhayso.org/forms/2012/ZeroTolerancePolicy2012.pdf
It was another great weekend. All the smiles, cheers and memories made were a pleasure to watch and be a part of again. Please remember to bring a lot of water for you and your players. Shade and sun block are also a good idea.
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"

This week I would like to remind coaches and parents that the soccer experience in the U6 and U8 divisions is for FUN. The lower division's main purpose should be getting young players excited about soccer so that they continue to play within our region. This is not World Cup soccer, although many spectators and coaches think it is. There are no scores or standings kept in the lower divisions because it's not about the final score, it's about the EXPERIENCE. We as coaches need to make sure we get this point across to our spectators. This is why we cheer for both teams when a goal is scored. Remember, we are there for all of the kids, not just those on our team. We want to produce the strongest region possible and that starts in our lower divisions by getting the kids excited to play and enjoy the game of soccer.
If you have a player who is clearly more experienced or advanced than anyone else on either team, don't let this player dominate the game (which they can clearly do because they score 90% of the goals). Challenge that player to get the other players on their team involved. Reward passing and assists the same way you may reward goal scoring. In the long term you may scoreless, but the long term effects of producing a better player and team far outweigh this.
As for defense in U6/U8 divisions, of course you can teach your team to play defense, as a defensive minded coach I strongly recommend it. Just make sure that you do not position defensive players in the goal area. Have players located at the top of the goal area and move them toward the halfway line as the ball progresses into the attacking half of the field. As the ball transitions into the goal area the kids will naturally follow. What we want to avoid is having players parked in the goal area the entire game, this teaches them nothing, and in fact it is counterproductive as these players don't feel connected with the game. For corner kicks and other set plays near the goal, they are allowed to stand within the goal area because they need to understand the importance of protecting their goal in these situations. If the other team has a player who stays back all the time, understand that some players are defensive minded and they naturally fall back to a defensive position. Don't knock the teams' sportsmanship score down because they have a defensive minded player. Remember, these are only 5 to 8 year olds (you may have the player on your team in the future and we all want good defensive players). At the rest of your games this season I recommend you speak with the other coach and referee, if one is assigned, and make sure everyone is on the same page concerning the location of defensive players.
U10/U12 GOAL KEEPERS
Players in the U10 and U12 divisions can only play two quarters in goal keeper each game, and must play at least one quarter on the field. In the U10 division this means if you have a player scheduled to sit two quarters for a particular game they can only play one quarter in goal and the other must be on the field.
U10 PLAYER POSITIONS
Coaches in the U10 division please make an effort to move your players around to different positions during the season. At this age players are still discovering where they play and perform best and sticking a player at a particular position all the time may frustrate the player to point that they are not having fun. Players will have plenty of time when they are older to specialize in a particular position, at this age we should be encouraging them to play a multitude of different positions.
Coaches in the U10 through U14 divisions will be receiving all-star nominations forms in the next couple of weeks. This is the first important step toward the selection of our regional all-star teams. Once the nominations are in I will produce the nomination list for each division.Please remember these lists are for the coaches eyes only. The All-Star meetings are scheduled for November 4th through the 8th and will be held at the Mayflower Gardens Clubhouse. Meetings dates and times for each division will be provided when the nominations forms go out in a couple weeks.
U6/U8 Soccer Drill of the Week
Red Light, Green Light
- Create a starting line for each of the players, and the coach should move 15-20 yards away.
- With the coaches back to the players, he yells GREEN LIGHT and the players try to dribble to the coach. When the coach yells RED LIGHT, he waits a moment and then turns to face the players. Anyone who is not stopped has to go back to the farthest person from the coach.
- Have the players dribble with only the right of left foot.
- Make sure the players keep the ball close so they can stop quickly.
U10/U12 Soccer Drill of the Week
Diamond Passing Combination
- Set up 4 cones in the shape of an elongated diamond.
- Assign an all timer passer on each of the two cones where the points of the diamond are closest.
- Rotate these passers every 3-5 minutes. In our diagram, the passers are red.
- Have the first player in line pass to one of the passers and overlap them.
- The passer that receives the first pass plays a first time ball into the other passer who then returns the ball to the player overlapping.
- The player then plays into the next player in line and the pattern repeats going the other direction.
- Play every pass 1-touch
- Expand the distance between cones and play longer balls in the air.
- Focus on clean, crisp passing.
- Movement off the ball must be timed with the pass.
- The drill should flow with a continuous passing pattern.
- Focus on speeding up the combination play.
UKI Coach Training Program
Did you know that QH AYSO arranged for a Coach Training Program with UK International Soccer Camps this season? Do you know what that means for our coaches and our players?
This means that we are providing additional training to our coaches so they can better train our players. It is COACHING TRAINING to help coaches with practice session ideas, answer questions, and provide guidance on the field. Each training session will be followed up with an email with additional training ideas. This will be a great experience for both new coaches and the more veteran, experienced coaches, providing both with tools to enhance their practices and game skills/tactics.
Each week the UKI Coach Training has a set schedule with reserved fields for the trainers. Coaches may sign up to bring their team (or any number of their players) to an age appropriate session and take advantage of this additional resource by visiting our website and clicking on the "Sign Up - UKI Training Request" link.
Space is limited to only 2 teams at a time but any coach may come to any session and observe without their team.
Coaches - don't miss this great opportunity to grow as a coach!
Players - ask your coach when your team will be attending one of the sessions!
BECOME A REFEREE: It is the best seat in the house!
Our LAST referee training takes place all day this Sunday Sept 29th, at the Lancaster National Soccer Center starting at 8 am. You will soon be hearing more and more about tournament soccer. Guess what? Every tournament team has to provide its own referees, so players with parent referees have a greater chance of being selected to a team.
For details on how to signup go to our website www.qhayso.org and click on referee information. Questions? Call Tim at 943-9377.
All teams in U10 thru U14, including our Extra teams, need to obtain at least 7 referee points just to be considered for post-season play.
A team can earn up to 2 points a week from any Referee who chooses to donate their referee points they earned for a:
U8 Referee: ˝ point
U10-U19 Assistant Referee: ˝ point
U10-U19 Referee: 1 point
Select Referee FAQ's
Q) Why should I referee?
A) AYSO is an all-volunteer organization and there are NO games at U10 or higher without referees. Also, it is a fun way to be involved and the best "seat in the house" is in the middle of the field. In addition, if you are considering having your child play year-round tournament soccer, the kids with referee parents often gain an edge in team selection.
Q) I do not know the rules of soccer - does it matter?
A) No. The Regional Referee Class will teach you all you need to know about the Laws of the Game to function as a referee or assistant referee.
Q) Do I have to buy anything?
A) We provide you with a uniform and all the basics needed to referee.
Q) My weekend schedule is crazy busy - who assigns games to me?
A) You do! After taking the Regional Referee Class, we will send you an invitation to join "Arbiter Sports". This is a web-based program that will list all the games that you will be qualified to referee. You pick and choose which games fit your schedule. We do not assign you to any games.
Q) Are there mentor referees available to help new referees learn the ropes?
A) Yes. We are always short of referees, but where possible there are a few of us who will come out and help you on your first games - just ask!
It has taken five years with the Referee Points System as the catalyst, but for the first time since I have been involved in refereeing here in Quartz Hill, I believe that we had every single (regular season) game this week covered with three trained referees! By Saturday morning we had over 97 % of the ref slots self-assigned! The games are always so much better when we can have a full 3-ref team on a game. I hope that we can maintain this high level of support - PLEASE THANK A REFEREE WHEN YOU SEE ONE!
Top Youth U8 Referee Contest
This year we are again holding a contest to see which Youth referees can do the most U8 games. Prizes will be awarded at our annual volunteer appreciation night. After three weeks Brendan has built a commanding lead. What is really impressive is that we have Youth referees stepping into these leadership positions and taking care of ~37% of our U8 games. Games that the coaches used to have to referee! I know they appreciate the help, so make sure you treat those referees well! Here are the standings:
Every year we have a friendly competition to see who can do the most refereeing. As usual, Walter and Mel lead the pack, with the real battle over 3rd place. We have 113 referees currently working games; here are the top 28:
|Aguilar, Melanie||17 |
|Schneider, Stefan ||12.5 |

Region 638 Zero Tolerance Policy
In the past years, Region 638 has witnessed incidents where coaches &/or spectators questioned the calls of referees requiring referees to stop matches to deal with the situation. There have also unfortunately been incidents once a game has ended when coaches &/or spectators confront referees or other volunteers over decisions made during the game. These incidents prompt me to remind everyone that Region 638 has a long standing, zero tolerance policy prohibiting such behavior.
Our zero tolerance policy applies to all Referees and AYSO volunteers and will be enforced as follows:
- If a coach or spectator questions the call of a referee, the referee may stop the match, retrieve the game ball, and invite the coach onto the field for a conversation.
- During this conversation the coach may be told 3 things:
- The purpose of the conversation is not to debate a call but to inform the coach that the behavior of the coach/spectator is unacceptable.
- The coach has 2 choices. He/she can go back to their coaching area and coach per AYSO philosophies or the coach/spectator can leave the playing facility.
- The coach/spectator will be sent off if the referee has to speak to them again during the match.
- If the referee is a youth referee, the youth referee may stop the match, retrieve the game ball, and find a board member to deal with the situation as described above.
- Any coach/spectator who is heard verbally abusing a referee will automatically be sent off by the referee (if an adult) or a board member (in the case of a youth referee). Verbal abuse includes foul and abusive language and comments with racial or sexual overtones.
- If the unacceptable behavior of the coach/spectator occurs after the game has ended it will still be reported by the referee and will be considered as a send off.
- Referees will report any occurrences where a coach/spectator is sent off and there will be an investigation to determine the subsequent penalty. The penalties are at the discretion of the Region and may include suspension from future games.
- The Region also reserves the right to investigate instances when abuse of a referee or volunteer is not reported by the referee or volunteer but is subsequently brought to our attention. The penalties are at the discretion of the Region and may include suspension from future games.

GOOD LUCK QUARTZ HILL EXTRA!!!!!
I would like to remind all parents about the recent changes made in the U05 program. Due to the large amount of players in the program and to better even out the number of participants during each session, we have decided to make an adjustment as to who attends each session based upon the players last name.
This week's sessions are as follows:
8:00-9:15 am: Girls with last names A-L; Boys with last names I-Z
9:30-11:00 am: Girls with last names M-Z; Boys with last names A-H
The sessions will continue to alternate each weekend. The shutterfly calendar will be amended to reflect all changes made. I can be contacted via shutterfly, email or by phone should there be any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your continued support and participation in the Jamboree Program. I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday!

NO SMOKING ALLOWED
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!
TRASH, TRASH, TRASH!
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.
And, PLEASE take large items, such as broken chairs, home with you!!!
Together we can keep our fields and our community clean!
JOE WALKER OR
GREGG ANDERSON TRACKS!!!
To all Parents, Coaches, and Players:
Please do not run on these tracks 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 ALLOWED!!!
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, Josh Duncan at 661-436-0180.
Thank you for your cooperation.
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! Any unclaimed items will be donated to a worthy charity at the end of the season!
Quartz Hill AYSO would like to thank our Sponsors for the 2013 Season! The donations from our sponsors allow Quartz Hill 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!
