In the U4 and U6 Divisions, it is highly recommended that the coach be on the field.All other divisions must be coached from the sideline.
While unfortunate, the occurrence of a lopsided score does not necessarily mean that a lack of sportsmanship took place. Representatives of CYS Youth Sports will use the online forms and communication with the involved coaches to review the circumstances and determine if any sanctions are warranted.
- 4+ GOAL VICTORY – Any game that is won by 4 or more goals in any division will be investigated and reviewed by the committee. It is expected that the winning and losing coach, in particular, will make themselves available for discussing the game so as to expedite the decision making process.
- FORMS – Both the winning coach and the losing coach are required to submit a form which describes which measures were utilized to mitigate the talent differential between the teams. Forms must be submitted to the Sports Director via email as soon as possible. The Sports Director will personally contact each coach to understand the circumstances.
- CONSEQUENCES – Disciplinary action toward the winning coach may result (suspension of the coach for the next game, or in the case of repeat violations, suspension for the remainder of the season).
- NOTE: A coach who is suspended from coaching a team by CYS Sports Director is not eligible to be present as a fan for that CYS Youth Sports event.
