EVALUATION SESSION FOR FALL COMPETITIVE LEVEL TEAMS
Hi, soccer families. The soccer club is pleased to announce that we will be holding an evaluation session for our Fall competitive soccer teams on Friday, August 19th, from 6-7pm at Ridge Road school. 
 
This session is open to all players, but it is geared primarily towards those players who have not played previously on a comp team and are interested in playing on one. Players who played on a comp team previously are welcome, but you do not need to attend this session, as the coach's evaluation will be used to determine your placement next season.  
 
For the Fall season, we plan on offering comp teams for players born from 2002-2008 (U9 to U15). The actual number of comp teams will be determined by our final registration numbers. 
 
We hope to see you there!
 
If you have any questions or if you are interested in having your son or daughter be evaluated but are unable to make this session, please contact:

Changes to Uniform Ordering Process for Travel Age Groups
Hello, North Haven Soccer Parents.
 
We hope you have had a fun and productive spring soccer season! Believe it or not, registration has just opened for the Fall 2016 session. As our current Nike uniform has expired, we will have new Under Armor travel uniforms this Fall. This year, we will be handling uniform orders a little differently. Instead of ordering your uniform on the North Haven Soccer Club website as part of your registration, this year everyone will order uniforms directly from TeamSports. Please be on the lookout for an email from support@teamuniformorders.com. This email will come after the rosters are set in July, you will have 2 weeks to order at our discounted bulk price. In this email you will find a username/password with a link for you to order the new uniform and any additional discounted items you want. All players will need to order the new jersey, shorts and socks. Your numbers will be assigned by the club. Uniforms will be delivered to your coaches or team managers at the end of August.  If you have any questions about uniforms, feel free to contact Tracey Falasco by email at tfalasco@gmail.com or by phone at 203-234-6211.

Changes Coming to US Youth Soccer

Parents and Players, 

As we begin our registration process for the Fall 2016 season, we want to make everyone aware of upcoming changes being implemented by US Youth Soccer and how it impacts your child as a part of our soccer club:  

  • CALENDAR YEAR AGE GROUPS: Beginning this Fall, all registration programs will be based on the calendar year your child was born.  This replaces the August 1 to July 31st age groups (which were always so confusing anyway!!)  When you go to the registration page on our website, simply scroll down to the program which matches your child's birth year and gender.
  • SMALL SIDED GAMES: Our in-town (u8 and U10) programs began implementing the new small sided games requirements for the spring 2016 season.  We plan to continue that process for our in-town program going forward.  Our travel age teams will not be implementing the small sided game requirement until all of CJSA South Central District implements it.  Currently CJSA is saying that requirement must be implemented by Fall 2017 but we will communicate any changes to that timeframe when we hear them.

If you would like to read more about the changes, please follow this link.

Thank You,

NHSC

CJSA Heading & Concussion Protocol

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.
