YDP – Marco
Marco thanked Scott for all his hard work this season in the tracking of all the
Made some recommendations if we continue to run YDP: Everyone needs to
submit a blue flight team. We have had a couple of region who clearly had a blue
flight team, but are playing red flight and having blow out games.
Some years it will not be your season for your region and others it will and
everyone needs to except that.
Scott agreed, there were an abundance of lopsided games.
Blue Flight: Will be the best players you have to offer for that year.
Frank reminded us that we have moved away from why we started YDP, the
suggestion of YDP being for the elite players and elite coaches, and if we want
more kids playing, maybe create a spring select for everyone else, with open
Also need to look at coach selection, so players are progressing.
Will need to have a YDP debrief and re-look at what YDP should look like, taking
into account resources, like fields, referees etc.
Anne suggested to not have U14 games followed by U19 games as you then
have Regional referees running lines on a U19 game.
Referee Report: Scott
This YDP season is too big for the referee pool to support.
4% of missed referee assignments- Regions not able to fill the slots with qualified
referees. Problem with qualifications of the team referees doing the games.
Not the referees to support the teams.
We also had 4 teams with special dispensations: Montebello with no referees
that would travel to other regions being one.
Jane pointed out that the Regional Commissioners need to be more diligent in
approving rosters if they have no qualified referees.
Scott will be delegating the referee responsibilities for the UD playoffs
Referee Dinner: We had 85 people attend the UD dinner this year with 4 no
shows which is excellent
Feedback would be to change location for next year and to get onto calendar
Intermediate Challenge – Scott challenges region on who can upgrade the most
Intermediate referees in the 2015 year. This will be worked out per registered
player basis.
Attended an Assessor meeting in Torrance- was a round table meeting to gather
ADRI – Anne
Instruction: would like to hear from all regions of when they plan to hold classes,
she would like to calendar all classes so we are supporting each other
We need to have certified and approved assessors doing the observations. To be
approved by Area 1C.
Coach Administrator Report – Mike
Very few signups for the upcoming Intermediate and Advanced coaching classes
coming up this May 22-24. Will be hosted in Glendale. Everyone should be
encouraging their coaches to upgrade, so they are not scrambling come
To look at an email alert through eayso.and /or Area C website.
Will not be supporting requests for cross certification this year, when we are
hosting classes for coaches to get the training.
Mike sent out a video on how to coach a lopsided game.
Scot and Marco keep Mike up to date on coach expulsion, and have not had any
yet this YDP season.
Financial Report: Frank
See attached Balance sheet and P & L.
We are in the black for this year, still have YDP and Freeway Jam expenses, but
we have money to support it.
Frank also shared his experiences with Barcelona Camps, as he spent Easter in
Spain and had some great experiences.
Upper Division- Peter
Have a UD coordinator meeting set for July 6th
Please let Peter know who your Regions UD coordinator will be, they need to
come with approx. number of teams and the fields you will supply for the region.
VIP: Tom
Just finished our 2nd annual VIP camp, had 25-34 players in attendance on any
given week.
2 trainers from AYSO camps and this year ran 2 different sessions
Had pizza party this last Sunday, handed out medals and t-shirts.
Look at dates for next year, whether March/April works.
Area Report: Jane
NAGM – reminder to those who have not signed up, to do so asap. Currently
only 3 RCs registered
Now is the time to amend your regional guidelines if you are going to make
Also a reminder on the FOX One logo being a part of your uniforms as of March
1st. This also includes getting logo onto old reused uniforms.
The partnership with Fox Sports is not a monetary one, but rather a exchange for
advertising which is huge for the exposure of AYSO.
Jane to work on a yearly calendar, so we have no surprised.
Freeway Jam is a go and will be July 18/19
Regional Reports; Please find attached those regions that reported this week.
Additional Comments:
Aldo mentioned that Region 88 presented checks to the school districts of the
fields they use. 3 of the schools emailed the National Office in appreciation.
Region 88 are also having problems with e-sign, parents not completing esign
correctly, so player cannot be registered.
