CYSA District VI CPL
 
CPL Seeding and Schedules
Seeding was revised after the August 8th meeting based on coach requests and additional seeding information and/or corrections.  Schedules will be posted by Sunday, August 20.  After five Saturdays of play, adjustments to divisional seeding will be made (but not a re-seeding), and the second half schedule will be posted.  In order to provide ten scheduled matches for all teams, the October 14th break weekend will be a play date for divisions containing an odd number of teams.
CPL Rules Change (the rules are in 'Downloads')
There has been a revision to the CPL Rules and Policies (in 'Downloads') prompted in part by a question concerning arrangement of teams and spectators at matches that was raised at the CPL meeting.  District has mandated that CPL use the same scheme as CCSL, specifically, that the home team and spectators occupy one side of the field and the visiting team and spectators occupy the opposite side.  The change affected 2:02 and 2:03 in the CPL Rules and Policies document.  Please go to 'Downloads' and print the revised two pages of CPL Rules.  The revisions are in italic font.
2016 Founders' Cup and Local Tournament Events
A flyer for the 2017 Founders' Cup is now available in 'Downloads'.  Founders' Cup is a State level Championship for CYSA Recreational teams that plays on the October 28/29 weekend at Mistlin Sports Park in Ripon.  Additional information about Founders' Cup is in the flyer.  To enter, please visit the www.calnorth.org/apply-for-founders-cup/ website.  The CPL Info document also in 'Downloads', lists three local tournament events sponsored by PYSL, EGYSL and Land Park that will play on the Oct 14/15 'break' weekend.
2017 CPL News Updates (as of August 6th, 2017)
The mandatory CPL Coaches meeting is scheduled for 7:00 pm, Tuesday, August 8th, 2017, again at the 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.

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 (11 play dates for 10 games).  The 'mid-season' break (for most teams) will be on Saturday, October 14th (part way through the 2nd half); mid-season divisional adjustments will be determined after four weekends of play, but the adjustments will not take effect until the 2nd half of the season begins on September 30th.

The early CPL schedule start is necessitated by the change to the High School Season of Sport for soccer, which is now a Winter sport for both girls and boys.  District Cup for U16s and U19s will be played November 11th/12th and 18th (and possibly Nov 19th), before the start of inter-scholastic HS play.  U10, U12 and U14 District Cup matches will be played 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 change to the calendar year definition for age groups.  This was a one time only offering.  In the 2017 Fall CPL season, this option will not be available to players who become 19 years old before January 1st of 2018.  

Due to last year's CYSA (Cal North) mandate that all players aged 12 years and younger are not to head the ball, and the District VI rule prohibiting heading in U14 matches, a parental waiver may be required by your League for a U14 player to participate in CPL (in the U16 age group).  A waiver is preferred rather than imposition of a minimum age restriction of 13 years old for CPL participation; we recommend that players younger than 13 on Aug 26th not participate in CPL.
2016 CPL Coaches Meeting Handouts
Five of the six handouts for this year's August 8th, 2017 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 as needed for 2017 over the next month or so (some have already been partially updated).  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
