Fall 2017 U15-19 Flighting Information

Fall 2017 U15-19 Flighting Information

Dear Coaches, Team Managers and Team Contacts,

The preliminary flighting information is now posted on a Google Document spreadsheet at the following location: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sNCxsnJQW4E2-g3TMaGZcMtkE2V_UB_Y9QN9syx23oo/edit?usp=sharing

Flighting was set up based on the standings after the Winter/Spring 2017 season, but there are no age groups except U15 girls with more than ten teams, so that is the only age group with two divisions. Therefore, flighting was relatively simple and it is unlikely to generate much feedback. However, we have also posted a Google form that will allow you to provide us whatever information you need to provide us that is related to the age group and division your team has been placed to compete this fall. That form can be found at https://goo.gl/forms/H2d44PW1KvYuQgeI3 .

If you have any questions or concerns about flighting, please do not send an email to board members or the scheduling coordinator. Instead, use this form and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. The form will be available for you to use for U15-19 teams until August 13, after which flights will be finalized and scheduling for the fall will commence.

Looking forward to a great season,
Maggie Barton

Team Standings for Winter/Spring 2017

Team Standings for Winter/Spring 2017

Dear Winter/Spring 2017 coaches, managers and team contacts,

Below is a link to the Google Doc that lists all teams from our last season with standings information that has been “normalized” in cases where all teams didn’t get the same number of games. Fortunately, the vast majority of our teams got an equal number of games and the normalization process has had little effect on standings.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1E7M64ntEDfWCFgEBr2hlF54Em9AjBWdlrL4PTZAFqP0/edit?usp=sharing

Once all teams have registered for the Fall 2017 season, this is the document that will be used to set up the preliminary flighting in each age group. That flighting document should be posted on the dates listed at page 12 in the PCJSL Administrative Handbook. The flighting policy/protocol is discussed starting at page 16 of the Handbook. After preliminary flighting is posted you will have several days to review and provide feedback on a Google Form that will be sent when flighting is posted.

If you have questions about any of this, please don’t hesitate to ask. If I don’t have the answer, I’ll get your email forwarded to someone who does. I hope you are having a great summer and I look forward to seeing the team registrations for the fall roll in!

Thanks,
Maggie Barton

Fall 2017 season for PCJSL

Fall 2017 season for PCJSL

Dear PCJSL coaches, team managers and team contacts,

The time has come to get registered for the Fall 2017 season, but there are two different closing dates depending on the age of your team.

U15 – 19 teams – Registration closes August 5, 2017
U9 – 14 teams – Registration closes August 28 (if there are U9 or U10 teams that cannot be formed by August 28, you may register later, but will only be scheduled in Play Block 2, which starts on Nov 11 and you will only play three games in the Fall 2017 season.

This year, before you are allowed to complete registration you will be required to acknowledge that you have read and understand the PCJSL Handbook, which I have attached here . Although there is a link in the GotSoccer application that will also allow you to obtain a copy of the handbook, that link won’t be functional until later this coming weekend after our Communications Commissioner returns home and is able to place the handbook on the web site.

If any of you have trouble getting the link in this email to work, you can send me an email and I will try to send a copy to you directly. You should NOT acknowledge that you have read the handbook until you actually do so because you will be held responsible for all of the information presented there and your failure to follow rules, policies and guidelines set forth in the handbook may create issues for you and your team.

The link for registration is https://www.gotsport.com/forms/app/?eventid=48871 and it will also be available on the PCJSL web site later this weekend. Please be sure to follow the directions in the handbook for selecting your black out dates because not all age groups are allowed two dates due to the limited number of Saturdays available to play league matches.

U15 – 19 teams only get to select ONE black-out date. If you need a second date for a tournament, you may get one, but only by following the rules in the handbook at page 13.

U9-10 teams also only get to select ONE black-out date in Play Block 2 (no blackouts allowed in Play Block 1). You may, however, get a Black-out date in Play Block 1 to attend a tournament, but only by following the rules at page 13.

Failure to follow this policy will prevent your team from being accepted until the issue is resolved.

We are very excited about our continued efforts to improve your soccer experience with PCJSL and we look forward to the upcoming season. A standings list from the last season will be posted in the next few days and I will follow up with another email containing a link to a Google Doc where you can look at how your team compares to others that played during that season.

Until the next email, respectfully yours,
Maggie Barton
PCJSL Scheduling Coordinator

How to find a place for your child to play Soccer in Pima County

How to find a place for your child to play Soccer in Pima County

We receive many inquiries from parents either new to soccer or new to Pima County about how to get their child started in soccer and onto a team. As you will see, you must work with one of the many fine soccer clubs that operate in Pima County, not with the PCJSL organization itself.

If you are interested in your child playing soccer in Pima County here are the steps you should follow.

    First, look at our page http://www.pcjsl.com/club-directory/ , or even the AYSA page http://www.usyouthsoccer.org/aboutus/FindaClub/?F_STATE=AZ where you will find out which clubs are operating in which area of town. You can also find web pages, email addresses and phone numbers for these clubs.

    Second, you should go to the web page of the different clubs you saw on the club directory and investigate where they practice, their history, their philosophies, etc.

    Third, reach out to the clubs you are interested in and determine which one is the right fit for you and your child.

    Lastly, pick one of those clubs and register your child directly with that club.

Pima County Junior Soccer League (PCJSL) is the managing body for all soccer in Pima County. We are a sub organization of Arizona Youth Soccer which is a sub organization of US Youth Soccer. We do not have teams or players. All team and players fall under a club that is in our Club Directory.

We hope this helps and have fun with Soccer!
