General EYSL Rules and Guidelines

Players, Coaches, Teams

Players are accepted on a first entry received “first placed” basis. EYSL has on-site, mail-in, and online registration options.

Coaches are volunteers; EYSL will accept as many players in an age division as the number of volunteer coaches make possible.

Teams will vary in size due to number of “age-appropriate” players. The number of players playing at once will also vary and will be appropriate to their age. Players are assigned to teams in a random method; no particular team placement in guaranteed.

 

Player Equipment and Safety

Players will be issued a team shirt and socks. Players are encouraged to wear their shirt to all practices and games. Players are responsible for providing shin guards and shoes. Shin guards are required at all practices and games. Shoes shall be soccer cleats (molded bottoms) or “tennis shoes”.

Suitable shorts or pants of any color may be worn for practices or games.

Jewelry and hair accessories (hard plastic) are not permissible for safety. Earrings must be removed prior to play or covered with tape.

NO CASTS OR SPLINTS unless approved by the League Director.

 

Scrimmages and Games

U6 teams practice 1 weekday evening and play a scrimmage, usually on Saturday with no formal scoring being kept. Participation medals are given to U6 and U8 players.

U8, U10, and U12 teams generally play 1 weekday game, 1 Saturday game, and practice 1 weekday evening.

U14+ teams usually play 1 game Saturday, 1 game Sunday, and practices vary.

All coaches pick their practice day.

1st and 2nd place award medals are given in U10, U12, and U14+ divisions.

 

Parents and Referees

Parents are expected to exhibit proper behavior at all times. No excessive disruptive yelling or displays of poor sportsmanship shall be tolerated.

Referees will do their best. If you have a referee complaint, ask your coach for the League Director’s contact information.

 

Weather and Safety

EYSL rarely cancels activities for wet field conditions or light rain. Lightning shall cancel all activities. Call your coach if you’re in doubt.

Parents MUST WATCH ALL “LITTLE BROTHERS/SISTERS” CLOSELY.

No alcohol at the park.

DO NOT BRING DOGS to the field during soccer activities.

 

Parking

The parking lot is the single most dangerous area at EYSL.

1.       DRIVE SLOWLY AND USE THE PROPER ENTRANCE AND EXIT.

2.       KEEP LOOKOUT FOR PEOPLE ENTERING THE PARKING LOT.

3.       DO NOT WALK IN THE PARKING LOT. WALK IN THE GRASS.

4.       ALWAYS LOOK BEHIND YOUR CAR BEFORE BACKING OUT.

ON Tuesdays AND Thursdays, the parking lot gets full early. 

ONCE THE LOT IS FULL, IT IS FULL!
SAFETY MUST BE YOUR FIRST CONSIDERATION, NOT A CONVENIENCE.

OVER-FLOW  (LATE COMERS) MUST PARK ON THE STREETS ACROSS VANN AVE, AT THE BASEBALL FIELDS TO THE NORTH, OR AT THE STATE HOSPITAL SOFTBALL PARKING LOT.

PLEASE, DON'T CREATE UNSAFE CONDITIONS YOU MAY COME TO REGRET.
