Welcome to Tim Miller, President of Maryland Youth Soccer.
More red cards than usual this spring. Review the list, lists everyone to date that owes a sitout. Game cards are still coming in so there will be some additions. R&D will meet next month to assess sitouts and penalties. Teams need to keep track of accumulated points. Review the rules, call Ray if there is a question
MD.-Mike Basilio - There is a new roster form with two changes--a separate column for state and a new column that deferentiates player status. Throw out last years forms, please use the new ones. Club reps please help teams do it right.
VA.-Jim Fraize - Club reps need to take the calls when there are any questions for the registrars, then if you don't know the answer you can call the registrar. There is a disk in each packet with the new rosters on it. It is compatible with Windows 95. Wednesday night rule will be strictly enforced this year except for state cup. No one will get their roster before September 1, you can retrieve your old cards to use for August tournaments.
