A: Arizona Youth Soccer Association rules. U11 and younger teams may roster up to 14 players, U12-16 teams may roster up to 18 players: U17-19 teams may roster up to 22 players but only 18 players may be placed on the game roster. (Starting next season, U16 teams may roster 22 players)
A: PCJSL allows loan players just for this reason. If you have 12 players you may use loan players not to exceed a total roster size of 15 -- so if you have 14 players of your own, you use 1 loan player but if you have 12 players you could use 3. If you're really down players (SATs or flu season!) and only have 7 players you can use up to 5 loan players to reach a roster size of 12. If the loan player(s) is from your own club, you need only the player card and the signed medical release form. If the loan player(s) are from a club other than your own, you will need a completed loan player form(see PCJSL forms), with signature from the parent and/or guardian of the child, and coaches of the two teams involved, , the player card, and a copy of the signed medical release.
A: Game scores are posted after the game card is received by PCJSL from the referee. If your game score is not posted it is because either the game card has not been turned in or the game was forfeited by both teams, moved or canceled.
A: Both are national organizations under US Soccer and both have the same goal; to teach players the game of soccer and to teach them to love the game! Both want players to compete in games that offer close competition. AYSO does this by balancing the teams. Players may be moved from team to team so that each team competes at a like level. In PCJSL, we balance play by flighting teams. For example, an age group might have a top flight of competitive teams; an middle flight and a recreational flight.
A: By flighting teams rather than moving players, we allow teams to stay together. Children can stay with the same group of friends and with the same coach. Teams are able to control where they want to be flighted and choose the level where they want to compete.
A: PCJSL has many options among its clubs for the competitive players. In many cases, they will be able to work with a coach who is nationally licensed and has an impressive resume of coaching and playing skills.
