A Plea to Our Soccer Families!!

Soccer families,

Throughout the year, you interact with your child’s soccer coach, or our coaching directors and clinicians, or sometimes our clinic and in-town program coordinators.  But did you know that there are numerous other volunteers working behind the scenes to keep the North Haven Soccer Club running?

 Here are some facts you may not even be aware of regarding how the club functions:

  • Our Executive Board consists of the President, two Vice Presidents, Treasurer and Secretary as well as several other directors.  These people help guide the club and set policies but ultimately every club decision (prices, uniform options, field size/location, etc.) is put up for a vote of the club membership at the monthly board meetings.
  • We hold monthly board meetings on the last Monday of each month from 7:15 – 9:00 pm at the Recreation Center.  These meetings are open to EVERY club member.  As a parent/guardian – you are a club member and any member over the age of 18 is eligible to vote on club motions.
  • We have over 600 families registered with the club and approximately 1,500 voting eligible members.  Attendance at our monthly board meetings averages between 10 and 15 people including the officers and directors on the Executive Board.
  • Many of our Executive Board members have served over 10 years and no longer have children playing in the program yet they continue to donate their time to the club.

Why are we telling you this?  Because club policies and decisions impacting your children’s youth soccer experience are being made by only 1% of the club membership and to some extent by members who no longer have children in the program!

We recognize that everyone has a hectic schedule but we are asking you to make every effort to attend a board meeting or two so you can learn more about the inner workings of the club and become an active member who can help continue the strong tradition on North Haven Soccer!

Our next monthly board meeting will be held on Monday June 26th from 7:15 to 9:00 pm at the Recreation Center.  We hope to see a lot of new faces!

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.
