Select Teams
by posted 07/03/2018

Hello WAYS Families,

 

My name is Vitto Caligiuri and with the assistance of Kerry Thomas we will be coaching the Watertown U12 and U14 Select teams this season (Fall and Spring).

 

This week, we would like to begin tryouts for the Watertown U12 (5th & 6th graders) and U14 (7th and 8th graders) Select teams.

 

We will begin this Tuesday, July 3rd and Thursday, July 5th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at UNICO.

 

I understand some families may have vacations planned as Wednesday is the 4th of July, so in addition to the tryout this week we will be holding a second tryout Tuesday, July 17th and Thursday, July 19th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at UNICO.

 

During every tryout session, we will hold a parent meeting to answer any questions. (i.e. Cost, Logistics, Uniforms, etc..)

 

Additional Notes:

  • Both teams will be competing in the Connecticut Club Soccer League (CCSL) this Season (Fall and Spring).

  • That said, we need to have the two (2) rosters complete and submitted to the CCSL organization by the Tuesday, July 24th. If there are any conflicts with the dates listed above, please let us know so we can make accommodations.

  • Once the teams have been selected, we will have more information regarding the training sessions and match schedules.

  • The current plan will be to have a one training session during the week and the matches will be played either Saturday's or Sunday's.

  • We anticipate starting the training sessions the last week of July and continuing them through the end of the summer.

     

    If you have any questions feel free to reach out, my email and cell phone number are listed below.

     

    Kerry and I look forward to the upcoming season and working with your children.

     

    Thanks,

     

    Vitto Caligiuri

CHANGES TO RULES ABOUT HEADING THE SOCCER BALL
posted 04/13/2016

CJSA MANDATORY COMPLIANCE FOR HEADING WITH 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 and strongly recommended to be applied immediately.

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 ti 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 and strongly recommended to be applied immediately.
