    Notes from board meeting 10/23

    Boys Soccer went very well this year with only 1-2 hiccups with officials and such. No other items were spoken about. 

    Girls Volleyball went pretty well as well with only 1-2 small issues regarding officials not showing up, but this is a vast improvement from previous years.

    Cross Country went very well. The board was pleased with Runner Card and made things easy and smooth for registration for the state races. A small reminder that students and parents need to approach their coach or AD about any issues that may creep up before or during the race. 

    A large discussion last night came about after some issues regarding boys basketball and jerseys and rosters. One team in particular used the same jersey for three different players and tried to have them all play during the game. 

    I refer each of you to the rules and regulations set apart by the board and its directors. 

    SCHOOL RESPONSIBILITIES 

    • If situations arise at a game that are not covered specifically by these rules, the situation must be discussed and resolved onsite only by the two team coaches, athletic directors, and the referees. It will be up to these individuals to decide on what will be the best course of action for all involved, and what will be most fair for the student athletes. Decisions made in these situations are final and will not be reversed afterwards.
    • School AD’s are responsible for communicating all vital information to their coaches, players, and families. The league will post all rules, schedules, and the code of conduct on the website ucssal.org. The league is not responsible for lack of communication within schools or between schools.

    PLAYER ELIGIBILITY 

    • Players must “dress” (be in attendance and in uniform) for at least half a team’s games to be eligible to play in the final tournament.
    • Only players who are enrolled at the competing school for the entire athletic season are eligible to be on the roster. The only exception is that schools may use 6th  graders from feeder schools (not competing schools).
    • Players who compete on any other school team, regardless of age, gender, or grade level are ineligible to be on the roster.
    • Submit rosters before your first game including first name, last name, jersey number, gender, and grade level. Schools will forfeit any games without the proper roster submitted to the league.
    • Each team is required to bring their own roster to each game for the referees to check.
    • Rosters must be e-mailed to region directors Scott Drechsler scottdrex@gmail.com (9th), and Trevor Jones Tjones@freedomprep.net (8th) Teams who do not submit a completed roster by their first game will forfeit their first game (regardless of final game score) and every game after until a completed roster is submitted.
    • 9th grade rule UHSAA Article 1.1
      C. A student who has participated on a junior high team or its equivalent during the ninth grade year is ineligible to participate on a high school team in that particular sport during that school year.
      D. Initial eligibility is established by attending the school as a student or trying out for and being selected as a member of a high school team, whichever comes first. To clarify, if students try out for any sport and make the Jr high team they are ineligible to play high school and vice versa. High school and Jr high games will be forfeited.

    The one thing that we really wanted to highlight as a board is that there hasn't been much along the lines of oversight. 

    Therefore, each AD is required to submit their full rosters of their entire team by Monday afternoon or the board will be having those teams forfeit their games until further notice. This has always been a board rule and it is the responsibility of the AD to make sure that the coach or themselves are turning in their rosters. Not having your roster turned in will also affect your team's eligibility for the state tournament for the year.

    In our August board meeting we will restructure the board and we need to add a few members. Please come and be a voice for change.

    We are having a hard time with schools who are not paying/sending to wrong addresses. We are going to make all schools pay online and pay the 3%. We have not upped fees for a long time and refs are getting more expensive so we can justify making all schools pay the fee. We are only talking about $150-$200 increase for the year because of the transaction fee. We will have a big budget meeting at the end of next school year to assess fees.

    We are going to try to move up to 9 games plus a guaranteed playoff game.

    The board needs to vote/adopt a transgender policy. This is what we have so far that has been posted on the website. - Need to adopt a transgender policy. "Tentative policy to be approved at the next board meeting “We will support individual schools’ decisions determining their own eligibility of individuals who identify as transgender. Players who compete on any other school team, regardless of age, gender, or grade level are ineligible to be on the roster for the same sport in a different season. For example, if they play on the girls volleyball team then they cannot play on the boys volleyball team in the same academic year." 

    Us directors are going to reach out to administrators from all schools saying that we more need support at board meetings. If you want to change/fix things in our league then according to our by laws you need to be in attendance to a board meeting. 

    Game Change Form

    If your school needs to reschedule a game, please contact the opposing school, agree on a reschedule date, and submit this form SEVEN days prior to game change.

      Board Meeting Notes From 8/24

       

      Any consideration for schools that would like more than one team to represent the school must notify one of the league directors at a minimum of 3 Days prior to the final registration deadline. You will not be able to add teams after the registration. (Voted on and ratified by the board). 

      Any team that pays the league fee for any sport and decides to cancel at any point after the registration deadline will not be eligible for any type of refund or movement of funds for another sport. This was already a rule - the board wanted to send out a reminder. 

      Per the board vote, it was proposed and ratified  that if you attend a K-9 school, you have to play in the 9th grade league, even if you don’t have any 9th graders that would be on the team. The havoc of scheduling was becoming an issue with schools trying to move around and leaving odd numbers of teams in both leagues. - This will be open to a official board vote at the next board meeting and would go into affect for girls basketball. Please attend our next board meeting to voice your opinion.

      Open boys and girls basketball registration together mid September and close end of September.

      New board member Brett Allen.

      Soccer fees and basketball fees will be raised but the league fees will not need to increase.
