CYSA District VI CPL
 
2017 CPL News Updates (as of June 23rd, 2017)
The mandatory CPL Coaches meeting will be scheduled for early August, 2017, hopefully again at the Orangevale Community Center, 6826 Hazel Ave at 7:00 pm.  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.

As was the case last year, the CPL season of play will begin two weeks earlier than in prior years, specifically on August 26th, 2017 (Saturday of the weekend before Labor Day weekend).  Matches will be scheduled on September 2nd (Saturday of the Labor Day weekend) and the last scheduled games will play on Saturday, November 4th (10 play dates).  The 'mid-season' break Saturday (for most teams) will be on October 14th; the mid-season adjustments will be determined after four weekends of play, but will not take effect until the 2nd half begins on September 30th.

The early CPL schedule start is necessitated by the change in the High School season of sport for soccer, which is now a winter sport for both girls and boys.  District Cup for U16s & U19s will be played November 11th/12th and 18th (and possibly Nov 19th), before the start of inter-scholastic HS play.  U10, U12 & U14 District Cup dates will be in December as in previous years.

Last year, USYSA recommended that a combined U19/20 age group be available for those who lost a year of eligibility due to the new calendar year age group definition.  In the 2017 Fall season this option will not be available for players who become 19 before January 1st of 2018; it was a one time only instance.  

Due to last year's 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.  This is preferred rather than imposition of a minimum age restriction of 13 years old for CPL participation.
2016 CPL Coaches Meeting Handouts
Five of the six handouts for last 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 eight years (2009 thru 2016), a Non-Participation report form, and 2016 District Cup application package are also available in 'Downloads'.  They will be updated for 2017 over the next couple of months.  All are in Adobe (pdf) format.
2016 District VI Cup Package
The 2017 District Cup application package is not available yet, but the 2016 version is in 'Downloads'. Dates of play and deadlines are one day earlier than those listed in the 2016 document.  In 2016, the mailed entry deadline was Monday, October 3rd; online entry deadline was October 17th, late entries were accepted through October 24th.  U16 and U19 District Cup played on the November 12th/13th weekend with Finals November 19th; it was a great way to finish the season.  All who applied before the online entry deadline date were accepted.  Online application is the preferred way to enter.  All entrants should review the downloadable District Cup application package.  To enter District Cup, go to www.teamsideline.com/DistrictCup
