Statement on Rescheduled Games for West Houston

Coaches, Managers, and Parents,

The HYSA Administrator is diligently rescheduling ALL games for ALL teams playing in HYSA this season.  This is very difficult, especially with a large number of fields no longer available (Bear Creek and George Bush fields).  PLEASE DO NOT REQUEST THAT THE RESCHEDULED GAMES BE AGAIN RESCHEDULED.  If you and your team cannot play at the time it is scheduled, it will be considered a forfeit - if you do have to forfeit, please make sure you contact the other team and make sure they respond.  If you are a no show and have not contacted the other team, the game will still be forfeited and you will be fined by HYSA and if it is a West Houston "home" game, you may also be charged for the referee fees by West Houston.  

Please check your schedules as often as possible to make sure you know where your game is now being played.  Any games you would be playing either at George Bush - with another West Houston team or a Chivas team, or at Bear Creek with Texas United  have been moved, most likely to Lamar Soccer Club fields or Sugar Land Soccer Club fields.  

If you have any questions, please contact either me (whscregistrar@gmail.com) or Board President Alex Cantu (alexcantu81@hotmail.com).  

Several clubs have offered fields for practices for our teams, once we have more details we will let you all know about those opportunities. 

There is more rain forecast for this weekend so be sure you check field status prior to going to games, especially if they are far away. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

HYSA New Rule on Heading the Ball for U11 and Below Play

HYSA has implemented the following rule change for all U11 and below play.

When a player deliberately heads the ball in a game, an indirect free kick (IFK) should be awarded to the opposing team from the spot of the offense.  If the deliberate header occurs within the goal area, the indirect free kick should be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the infringement occurred. If a player does not deliberately head the ball, then play should continue.

STYSA is taking a slower approach and will likely recommend changes at their summer governing meeting.  This means state competitions (cup play and DDL) do not have this rule in effect.

Remember, it is recommended that all 10-year-olds not head the ball during practice at all.  11-12 should practice sparingly.

Thank you,

Jason D Moore

HYSA President

REFEREES NEEDED!

Become a certified USSF Referee and get paid!!!

If you are 12 years old or above you can referee youth soccer games!  West Houston is recruiting for referees for HYSA games and the new Dynamo/Dash League.

South Texas Soccer Referees, Inc. (STSR) conducts referee clinics for all levels.  If you attend a clinic you will be certified as a USSF (United States Soccer Federation) Referee.

Click Here for available clinics.

The STSR Website has a lot of good resources. Click here to go to the STSR website.

How do I become a referee?

Some important points

  • While some previous playing, coaching or officiating experience is always helpful, no experience is required to become a soccer referee.
  • There are no age requirements for the entry level Grades. There are age restrictions for advanced grades.

To become a certified referee, there are a few easy steps everyone must go through:

  • You must attend a mandatory classroom training session. These "Entry Level Clinics" are offered in many locations around the state each year, most often during August-October and again January - March.
  • There are two entry points to becoming a referee:
    1. Recreational Referee - Grade 9 – Recreational Youth Referee
    2. Referee - Grade 8  - Youth Game Referee
  • At the conclusion of the instructional classes a written examination will be given to all who have completed the course.
  • A clinic fee is charged for taking the clinic. It is $30.00 . At the same time a USSF Registration fee of $50.00 is also charged.
  • Once you successfully completed the course and examination, you are registered through STSR with U.S. Soccer.
  • Once you are registered, contact your local assignors to get games. An Assignors and Soccer Associations directory can be found by signing into your STSR (South Texas Soccer Referees, Inc.) account and clicking on "Assignor Directory" in the Member Services box at the top of your home page.

South Texas Youth Soccer Cups - General Information

 

South Texas Youth Soccer Association (STYSA) hosts a series of Fall Championships and Spring Cups each year that are designed to provide a wide variety of competitions to best fit the skill and ability level of each individual team and group of players.  The focus of these competitions is to accomplish the following:

  1. Determine a Fall Champion in Division II, Super II, and Division III.
  2. Determine the STYSA State Champion which, in the U14 through U19 groups will represent STYSA at the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series.
  3. Determine the Presidents Cup Champion which, in the U13 through U17 age groups, will represent STYSA in the Region III Presidents Cup Regional Competition with the other twelve states composing Region III.
  4. Provide a format where a team doing above average in one level of play may test itself against the next higher level of play.
  5. Provide a format where teams may enter a STYSA sponsored competition with teams that they may not normally play against.
  6. Provide a quality competition during a period of the year when other sports may decrease the number of teams playing soccer.
 
Open entry competitions are open to any South Texas Youth Soccer registered teams wishing to participate.  
Restricted entry competitions are limited to South Texas Youth Soccer registered teams who qualify based on their Fall level of play as defined by South Texas cup rules.

South Texas Competitions Manual

South Texas Youth Soccer hosts the following Cup competitions in the Spring (it should be noted that the format and details of each Cup may differ based on the Cup entered and the District in which you play):
 
US Youth Soccer National Championships (State/National Cup), Presidents Cup and Directors Cup will, in general, play in the months of March, April, May, and June in an extended tournament format, with an effort to avoid Easter and Spring Break conflicts.
 
South Texas Cup (Spring) is a restricted entry event open to all DII and DIII teams. South Texas Cup is a 2-stage tournament that begins at the District competition (1st weekend), and concludes with a State Tournament (2nd weekend).  

Fall Championships (fall) play begins within the local Association and then advances to District level play based on an allocation process and concludes with a State Tournament.
 
Kohl’s American Cup events will be held on various dates around the state during the spring. Additional information on each of these competitions can be found by clicking on the link above.
 

GENERAL COMPETITION REQUIREMENTS
  1. All participants must be properly registered with South Texas Youth Soccer Association.
  2. All participants must be properly rostered to the team with which they participate.
  3. A player may participate in only one Cup competition during the year.
  4. A player may play for only one team in Cup competition.
  5. South Texas Youth Soccer’s Progressive Disciplinary System applies to all Cup competitions at the state level and below. Penalty points do not accrue in advancement play beyond state competition. However, if an ejection is received in the last game of State play, then the individual must sit out the first game of Regional play.
  6. In each Cup, each level of play will have its own disciplinary system (D&P). Decisions from the individual disciplinary systems may be appealed to the South Texas Appeals Committee and/or Executive Committee as designated by the South Texas D&P Procedures. If D&P Procedures are not published for a level of play, the South Texas D&P Procedures shall be used.
  7. For the Cups with restricted entry, the level of play in which the team participated in the immediately preceding fall shall determine the team’s eligibility.
  8. All teams that wish to participate in Cup play must comply with the registration procedures appropriate for their competition as posted on the South Texas Youth Soccer website, www.stxsoccer.org.
