!!! Important Registration Information !!!

 

  1. Who can I contact if I have additional Questions? Direct your questions via email to the coordinator listed below for the program your questions pertain to:

      • MiniKickers Coordinator - Chris Golia <chrisgolia@sbcglobal.net>

      • Recreational Coordinator - Anthony Messina < 

    • Travel:

      • Travel Coordinator - Dan Barrows < 

    • Premier - Joe Sousa < 

      • PSC Dynamo (Girls) - Anne Byrnes-Vescera < >

      • PSC Dynamo (Boys) - Dan Barrows < >

  2. What is the difference between in-house rec and travel? In-house Rec teams typically practice once/week for 60 minutes whereas travel teams practice 2 times per week for 90 minutes. All in-house rec games are in Prospect/Beacon Falls and are against other Prospect teams whereas travel teams play against teams from other towns and typically travel to those other towns for 50% of their games (typically inside a 20-30 minute drive for away games).

  3. When will the Spring season start? The Travel season will start early April and Rec season will start late April  - weather and fields permitting. We will communicate more specifically as the season gets closer.

  4. Why is the registration deadline so early for travel? This deadline is driven by the fact that we must submit our travel team numbers and classifications for the season to the district by late Jan so they can form the divisions for the season - doing so requires that we know in advance how many players we'll have by age and gender.

  5. Do I register for the team I played on last Fall? Registration is now based on birth year of the child, please visit -> US Soccer Birth Year and Season Matrix to see which Ux your child will play for in the Fall, for example birth year of 2010 is U7 and 2004 is U13.

  6. Do I have to play Rec if I play travel? PSC highly recommends U9 and U10 Travel players to play In-house Rec and encourages older children as well; however, it is no longer required. The cost to play In-house Rec will only be $15 if signed up for Travel.  If interested, please register for both and prior to paying, please contact David Cambra (davidcambra619@gmail.com) who will apply the discount.

  7. There is a question on my travel registration form about travel rec vs travel comp - what is the difference? The primary difference between travel rec and travel comp pertains to how the players are selected and how play time is determined as outlined below. We have included this question as part of the registration process to help us understand which players prefer travel comp vs travel rec and will use answers to this question when forming teams and deciding which teams are travel comp vs travel rec.

    • Player Selection: On a Travel Comp team players are typically selected based on skills in relation to other players whereas on a Travel Rec team anyone who signs up is placed on the team. These evaluations can be based on a Coach’s exposure during prior seasons, formal tryouts and/or a combination of both.

    • Playing Time: On a Travel Comp team there is no guarantee or guideline around playing time during games. While Coaches still strive for play time of those selected for the team – this play time is determined based on how a player is performing for the team (both in practices and in games) and player attitude (eg toward teammates and coaches) and can vary from game to game (eg in a highly competitive ‘league’ game less advanced players may not see as much or any play time). On a Travel Rec team there is a guideline in place that all players receive 50% playing time. While we allow flexibility on this guideline from game to game – our PYS Travel Rec team coaches are asked to ensure that all players receive a balanced and evenly distributed amount of playing time over the course of a Travel Rec team’s season.

HEADING AND CONCUSSIONS

 

CJSA Connecticut Junior Soccer Association

CJSA has adopted the US Soccer and US Youth Soccer recommendations regarding heading and the protocol for suspected concussions.   Compliance is mandatory for all CJSA members for all activities where CJSA insurance applies effective April 1, 2016.

This means that:

Heading Restrictions

       Players who are 10 and younger

  • No player who is 10 or younger may deliberately head the ball, regardless of the age group of the team they are playing on.  This includes all activities where CJSA insurance applies, such as practices, scrimmages, and competitions at all levels.    
  • No player on a U11 team or a combined team including the U11 Age Group, (e.g. U11/12), even if the player has turned 11, may head the ball deliberately.  

        This restriction will be enforced in competitions for teams U11 and younger (including combined age brackets including U11 and younger) by award of an indirect free kick for the opposing team.  Coaches and parents are responsible for applying this restriction for players who are 10 or younger and playing up.  
        
       Players who are 11-13.

  • Players who are age 11 to 13 and on teams for age groups U12 and older, are restricted to up to 30 minutes of practice heading the ball per week.  There is no restriction on the number of times these players can head the ball in a competition, unless the team is competing in a combined bracket that includes U11.  

Concussion Protocol

                Where a Health Care Professional (HCP) is Present at a Game or Practice
  • Any player who sustains a significant blow to the head or body, who complains about or is exhibiting symptoms consistent with having suffered a concussion or is otherwise suspected of having sustained a concussion, must be evaluated on the sideline by an on-site HCP engaged in this capacity for the competition who will perform applicable testing.
  • Any player suspected of suffering a concussion will not be allowed to return to play until he or she is cleared by the HCP.  Coaches, parents/guardians or players may not overrule the HCP.
  • If a coach seeks to allow a player to re-enter a game who has been removed from a game for a concussion assessment and who has not been cleared to return to play by the on-site HCP, the referee shall issue a warning to the coach.  If a coach persists in seeking to allow such player to re-enter the game after having been issued a warning, the referee may take other disciplinary measures against the coach as are permitted under the rules applicable to the competition.
  • Unless an HCP determined that the player has not suffered a concussion and clears the player to return to play, the player will not be permitted to return to practice or play until the player has successfully completed the return to play protocol and has been cleared to return to play by a Physician.   
 
Where a Health Care Professional Engaged for the Event is Not Present at a Game or Practice
  • Where a HCP engaged for the event is not present at a game or practice, any player who sustains a significant blow to the head or body, who complains about or is exhibiting symptoms consistent with having suffered a concussion or is otherwise suspected of having sustained a concussion, must be removed from play and evaluated by an HCP before the player will be allowed to return to practice or play. 
  • No coach shall permit a player who has been removed from a game for a concussion assessment to return to play until cleared to do so by an HCP. 
  • If a coach seeks to allow a player to re-enter a game who has been removed from a game for a concussion assessment and who has not been cleared to return to play by the on-site HCP, the referee shall issue a warning to the coach.  If a coach persists in seeking to allow such player to re-enter the game after having been issued a warning, the referee may take other disciplinary measures against the coach as are permitted under the rules applicable to the competition.
  • Unless an HCP determined that the player has not suffered a concussion and clears the player to return to play, the player will not be permitted to return to practice or play until the player has successfully completed the return to play protocol and has been cleared to return to play by a Physician.  

 
Definition of Health Care Professional
Health Care Professional (HCP) are licensed professionals such as an Athletic Trainer Certified (ATC) or Physician (MD/DO), with skills in emergency care, sports medicine injuries and experience related to concussion evaluation and management.
 
 
Compliance is mandatory for all CJSA members for all activities where CJSA insurance applies effective April 1, 2016.

Important Concussion Information

 

Important Concussion Information

Concussion Awareness for Coaches, Parents, Players

Heads Up Concussion - Concussion Fact Sheet for Parents

Section 114 of Connecticut Public Act 15-5, Concussion Awareness in Youth Athletics

---

Important Concussion Email from CJSA President

November 12, 2015

Dear CJSA Members:

Earlier this week, soccer’s national governing body, the United States Soccer Federation, announced (see membership notice below) that a resolution has been reached in a 2014 lawsuit filed against U.S. Soccer, Unites States Youth Soccer Association and a number of other American soccer organizations by a group of citizens concerned by concussions in youth soccer.

U. S. Soccer indicates it will announce in the near future, specific details, including a number of new initiatives and recommendations concerning the modification of substitution rules and limitations on heading the ball as well as a more comprehensive player safety campaign U. S. Soccer was working on before the litigation was initiated. We understand that the new recommendations include the elimination of heading the ball by players 10 years of age and limiting heading during any practice session for players between the age of 11 and 13.

CJSA will provide you these details as well as any corresponding timelines for implementation as soon as they are received from the Federation or U S Youth Soccer. Any new updates will also be posted on CJSA’s website at www.cjsa.org.

Since the U. S. Soccer announcement, CJSA has received a number of media requests for comment. CJSA will not be making any comments on this issue until U. S. Soccer provides specific details on these new recommendations and associated timelines. CJSA is requesting that its members also refrain from making any comment and, as requested in the notice, forward any local media inquiries you may receive to Neil Buethe, U. S. Soccer’s Director of Communications at: /312-528-1270.

I would also like to take this opportunity to remind all CJSA member clubs that earlier this year the Connecticut General Assembly passed a new law regarding concussions in youth athletics. This new law requires that as of January 1, 2016, CJSA and each of its member clubs make available at the time of a player’s registration, a written or electronic statement regarding concussions to each CJSA player and their parents or legal guardian. This new requirement was highlighted last August at CJSA’s annual President’s Meeting in Cromwell.

To assist member clubs with this obligation, CJSA has developed and made available on its website a notice which provides information compiled from the materials distributed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Member clubs will be receiving additional information via a separate email.
(http://www.cjsa.org/resource_center/concussion_information)


Thank you.

Sincerely,

Maggie Girard
CJSA President
