AYSO Area 1-P
1999 - 2000 SEASON
The tournament will be held
on three (3) Saturdays, January 8, 15 and 22, 2000 (Jan. 29, Feb. 5, 6,

necessary, additional Saturdays and Sundays in Feb. may also be used). All
regions / divisions will play on the first Saturday, with the winning
teams of each game returning the next Saturday to play on. A detailed
schedule by division is attached.
Single elimination format.
The winner of each game will return the following week to play the winner
of the game opposite them in the branch chart. Play will continue until a
division champion is determined. Games will not end in a tie. If a tie
exits at the end of regulation time then two (2) overtime periods will be
played in their entirety. If the score is still tied, then kicks from the
penalty mark will commence until a winner is determined. Winners of the
championships may advance to the Section 1 tournament March 4.
Divisions U-14(3) and
U-12(4) will play games of 11 players versus 11 players, Division U-10(5)
will play games of 9 players versus 9 players.

conducted under AYSO National rules and regulations, Section 1 rules and
regulations and Area 1-P tournament rules. (See all attached.) Any
variations to these rules used by individual regions during the regular
season are not in effect tournament wide. (Variations not in
effect can include, but are not limited to, such things as 3/4 game
play for every player, not having the same player as goal keeper the
entire game, etc.) If your region requires your team to adhere to regional
variations during area play, then that is for your team only. Also
note, per national rules, no free substitution during overtime;
substitution only at the start of overtime or between periods.

NOTE: IF YOU ARE SCHEDULED
TO SET UP AND CHALK / LINE THE FIELDS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE DAY AND THE
FIELD IS NOT READY ON TIME, THE TIME WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR
GAME. THE SCHEDULE WILL STAY ON TIME!
Teams have ten (10) minutes
from the scheduled start time to be ready with a minimum of seven (7)
players, or a forfeit will be declared in the opposing team’s favor.
Each coach and his/her
entire team needs to report for check-in with the field official 45
minutes before the start of every game. It is the coach's
responsibility to report for the check-in; the field official will not
track you down. If you forget and are late, the time will come off your
game. At check-in the coach will be asked for a filled out line-up card
and copies of each player's registration form. Failure to have a signed
in ink registration form for every player will result in that player being
ineligible to play. NO EXCEPTIONS! Line-up cards need to list all
players on the team's roster, in uniform number order, with any absences
noted and a reason stated. Each player will be checked for uniform
correctness, shin guards and absence of all jewelry of any kind. (No
earrings of any kind will be allowed for any reason. Friendship
bracelets are at the referee's discretion.) Each player will also be asked
one or more questions based on information appearing on his / her
registration form, to insure that the player on the form is the player
presented. Any attempt to present a player as being someone else or a
"ringer", whether caught at check-in or anytime later, will
result in the team forfeiting that game, the suspension of that player,
and the suspension of the coach. Late arriving players still must be
checked-in by the field official and verified. After check-in is completed
any changing of uniforms will require a new check-in. Any changing of
players is prohibited and will result in the team's forfeit of that game.
The rain-out phone number
is 310-559-9278. If you are in doubt about the game being played, call. DO
NOT ASSUME THAT BECAUSE IT IS RAINING AT YOUR HOUSE THAT THE GAMES ARE
CANCELED. CALL AND CHECK. Do not forfeit because you made a wrong
assumption. Entire rained out days will shift to the next weekend. PARTIAL
RAIN-OUTS WILL PROBABLY BE PLAYED AT NIGHT DURING THE WEEK. You will be
notified if this is necessary.
Remember that AYSO soccer
should be fun for everyone. Respect the players, your opponents, their
coaches and parents and most of all the referees. Offer the referees water
and oranges at half-time and game's end. Anyone exhibiting unsporting
behavior will be asked to leave the fields. Please pick-up all trash, we
loose our permits for littered fields; we have no maids. NO DOGS OR OTHER
PETS OF ANY KIND ARE ALLOWED AT THE FIELDS. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Parking at Webster Middle
School is very limited! Try and carpool. Everyone must obey the
parking attendants. Anyone found parking illegally or in violation of the
parking attendants’ instructions WILL BE TOWED. Make sure your team and
parents are aware of this.
