CYSA District VI CPL
 
Coaches Mtg Date Set - CPL Changes for 2016

Mandatory CPL coaches meeting will be at 7:00 pm Friday, August 5th at OVCC. There will be significant changes to the CPL season schedule for Fall 2016 due to a change to Winter for the high school soccer season of sport (see news below).
2016 CPL News Updates (as of July 22nd, 2016)
The mandatory CPL Coaches meeting has been scheduled for: 7:00 pm, Friday, August 5th at Orangevale Community Center, 6826 Hazel Ave.  After an overview of CPL and recent changes are presented, coaches will adjourn to tables to review the seeding.  If the coach cannot attend, a team representative must be present to participate in seeding review.

The CPL season of play will begin two weeks earlier than in previous years, specifically on August 27th, 2016 (Saturday of the weekend before Labor Day weekend).  Matches will be scheduled for September 3rd (Saturday of the Labor Day weekend); the last scheduled games will play Saturday, November 5th (10 play dates).  The 'mid-season' break Saturday (for most teams) will be October 15th; mid-season adjustments will be determined after four games, and take effect October 1st.

The CPL schedule change is necessitated by a change in the High School season of sport for soccer, which is now a winter sport for both the girls and boys.  District Cup for U16 and U19 teams will be played November 12th/13th and 19th (also on November 20th if necessary).  The U10, U12 and U14 District Cup dates will be in December as in previous years.

USYSA recently recommended that a combined U19/20 age group be available for those who would lose a year of eligibility due to the new calendar year age group definition.  Players with August 1st, 1997 through December 31st, 1997 birth dates are in this group.  In CPL, this age group will continue to be referred to as Under 19 (U19), and will include players aged 16, 17 and 18, plus those who become 19 on or after August 1st.

Due to the recent CYSA (CalNorth) mandate that all players aged 12 years and younger are not to head the ball, a parental waiver may be required for a U14 player to participate in the CPL U16 age group.  District VI is working with CYSA management to resolve this issue and avoid a need to impose a minimum age restriction of 13 years old for CPL participation.
2016 CPL Coaches Mtg Handouts (Updated 7/14)
Five of the six handouts for this year's August 5th, 2016 meeting are available in 'Downloads'.  They include the CPL Information handout, CPL Rules and Policies document, CPL PAD Procedures, District VI Zero Tolerance Policy, and CYSA Concussion Procedures and Policy.  Standings summaries for the last seven years (2009 thru 2015), the Non-Participation report form and this year's (2016) District Cup application package are also available in 'Downloads'.  All documents are in Adobe (pdf) format.  The CPL Informational document has not yet been completely updated for the 2016 season.
2016 District VI Cup Package (Updated 7/14)
The 2016 District Cup application package is now available in 'Downloads'.  Mailed entry deadline for CPL teams is Monday, October 3rd; online entry deadline is October 10th.  U16 and U19 District Cup plays on the November 12th/13th and 19th/20th weekends and is a great way to finish the season.  There is no need to submit an early application; all who apply before the deadline will be accepted.  The online application process is the preferred way to enter the District Cup tournament, but all entrants should also review the downloadable District Cup application package.  To enter District Cup, go to www.teamsideline.com/DistrictCup; enrollment will open in mid-September.
