Please be respectful of their time. All parents are encouraged to participate and to help make the Soccer League enjoyable and successful for all involved.Volunteers are needed in the following areas: Coaches,Referees,Board of Directors GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE GALLUPSOCCER LEAGUE1. To promote the health, happiness, and development of youth through regular, organized physical activity.2. To encourage maximum participation and enjoyment of the game of soccer by all girls and boys who wish to play the game.3. To promote soccer as a recreational game.4. To promote the ideal attitude of players towards others, to encourage the skill demonstrated by both teams, to learn by watching others, and to promote the enjoyment of playing the game.5. To always encourage skill and its application in team play.6. To encourage team members to be better players.7. To be constructive in criticism.8. To stress quality of team play as one of the primary goals.9. To acknowledge the concept, that it is more important to inspire confidence in players than to win.10. To stress to parents that it is more important to ask their children "Did you have fun?" or "Did you learn anything?" than to ask, "Did you win?".The common goal of any team sport should be to improve and maintain personal fitness, promote emotional health and growth, and to foster the spirit of doing the best for yourself and your team. It is our philosophy to bring to the game an atmosphere of fun and learning. A winning attitude is fundamental in any athlete or team. The game should teach sportsmanship and fair play. Learning and practicing these goals contribute to winning without arrogance and losing without alibis, allowing all to become winners in the broadest sense of the term-succeeding in playing well, doing your best, and enjoying the experience. We emphasize the mastery of team skills; respect for team members, coaches, and Referees; development of self-confidence; and recognition that the cooperative behavior of the entire team is essential to success of the team. We emphasize learning as opposed to winning, and demonstrate this by providing a recreational League rather than a competitive one. Competitive play is provided by the League through competitive teams, ODP and YOP. RULES OF THE GALLUP SOCCER LEAGUE Except as expressly provided for in the League Regulations, Gallup Soccer League games will be played in accordance with the Laws of the Game, as modified for youth soccer by USYSA . AGE LEVELS Participants must turn 4 years of age during the calendar year of play, and must not be 15 years of age during the calendar year .AGE GROUPS U6……………………………………….4 and5 U8……………………………………….6 and 7 U10……………………………………...8 and 9 U12…………………………………...10 and 11 U14…………………………………...12 and 13 U15……………………………………14 and 15 The League will roster U16, U17, and U18 competitive teams for travel, but will not provide recreational soccer beyond U15 (indoor excluded). Indoor will have separate age groups:U10 through U12, U15 and U19. If available INDIVIDUAL PLAYING TIME/ROTATIONAll players who regularly attend practice and arrive for a game on time must play the equivalent of one-half of each game, unless the coach in his/her discretion determines for disciplinary reasons not to play a player. REGISTRATION Registration is held in the spring, online at www.gallupsoccerleague.com fees vary by year. REFUNDS No Refunds.A $25.00 returned check fee will be applied to all returned checks, and the player will not be allowed to play until the check and fees have been paid in full. Proof of age will be required at registration. This shall consist of an original Birth Certificate issued by an appropriate Government Agency. Players will be drafted to a team during the month of June. The coach will call with team assignment, practice schedule and location. Team assignments will be done by the way of draft at a time and place set by the Board of Directors.Automatic Placement on a team will occur only in the following situations:1. The child, children or grandchildren of the head coach.2. The child, children or grandchildren of the assistant coach.3. The child, children or grandchildren of the team sponsor. All other selections to a team will be done by computer draft on an annual basis. There will be no carry-over of players from year to year.4. Late registrants will be assigned to teams by the League Registrar or Board designee, based upon team size and/or draft rotation until the age group is filled. The League Registrar will make attempts to keep the age, gender, and number of players on each team as equal as possible. It is the intent of the Gallup Soccer League that teams be balanced by age and gender as reasonably as possible, including players automatically placed on teams. Siblings will be placed on the same team, if they are in the same age group, as requested by parents or guardians, if registered on time. Late registrants may not be placed together if teams are full. Fees for late registration will only be accepted in cash or money order. Changing teams can only be done under circumstances of extreme hardship. A written request to change teams must be directed to the League President. The coach has no authority to add or change players. A twenty dollar ($20.00) transfer fee is charged for all transfers. All transfers must be approved by the Gallup Soccer League Board.Players will be assigned to a new team based upon team size and/or draft rotation. TEAM SELECTION / BLIND DRAFT PROCEDURES: Teams will be formed in a balanced blind draft rotation. The balanced-blind draft groups are, competitive boys, competitive girls, then descending by age and gender. Once competitive players have been drafted, League One will generate a computer based draft automatically evening out teams by gender and birth date.Example…..In U-12 girls, all players regardless of their team the previous year will be placed in the draft except for those automatically placed on a team.There after:1. All 11 year- old competitive girls will be selected on a rotating basis until all 11 year-old competitive girls are chosen.2. All 11 year-old non-competitive girls will be selected on a rotating basis until all 11 year-old girls have been chosen.3. The same process is then followed for the 10 year-old players.PLEASE CONTACT THE LEAGUE REGISTRAR FOR REGISTRATION PROBLEMS.The coaches may not add, switch, or recruit players to an existing recreation team. Registrations will be cut off when teams are full. PLAYING UP Players who wish to play outside their normal age grouping will be allowed to play-up based on skill only.

There are many areas in which help is always needed, with various levels of knowledge about soccer. Parents and Guardians are asked to read carefully "REFEREES" in this hand book. In soccer, unlike other sports, parents/spectators cannot engage in negative behavior. This can result in penalties for their team if so deemed by the Referee. This is a standard followed by all soccer Leagues, and is set out by the international governing body (FIFA and the USYSA).
THE COACHES' RESPONSIBILITY1. Acknowledge and understand the basic goals and objectives of the League.2. Attend the coach clinic each season.3. Be prompt at all games and practices.4.

Encourage individual and team pride in self-improvement.9. Arrange for substitute if unable to attend game or practice.10. Arrive at least 15 minutes before practice, and at least 30 minutes before a game.11. Prevent scores from being run up unnecessarily.12. Do not promote "star", a practice which limits potential development of other team members.13. Coaches, designated prior to the game, may coach from the sidelines by giving tactical instructions to their own team on points of strategy and positioning. Such tactical instructions cannot be continuous in nature, and must be conveyed to players in a positive civil tone. No negative or abusive comments may be directed to players on the field of play when giving tactical instructions. Part of the skill of playing soccer involves individual players making their own decisions.14. Be responsible for the actions of your team and conduct of your parent supporters.
TEAM PARENT / MANAGERThe board is requesting that every team have an assigned team parent. The team parent could have the following duties:1. Issue uniforms at the start of the season.2. Help the coach and assistant coach notify team members when there are changes in either practice or game schedules or other places when needed.3. Coordinate the after game snacks and drinks with the other team parents.4. Work with other parents to coordinate season end events.5. Issue and collect photo forms and hand out pictures when they arrive.The purpose of the team parent / manager is to help the coaches with details of the team that are not related to coaching. Ultimately, the entire group of parents and the coaches have the final collective decision on what to do for their players at the end of the soccer season.
REFEREES1. THE REFEREE HAS ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY CONCERNING PLAYERS ON THE FIELD AND CONDUCT OF ALL SPECTATORS.2. Youth Referees will be assigned games by the head Referee based on ability. Youth Referees have received the same training and certification as other Referees. All coaches, players and spectators are to show Youth Referees the same respect as they would any adult Referee. The Gallup Soccer League would not be able to continue to provide recreational soccer for the youth of Gallup without Youth Referees. They are an integral part of our program, and we could not continue to run the League without them.3. Soccer is played for the players.

The goals should be returned no later than May 31st of each year.APPLICABLE AGE GROUPS: Competitive teams will only be allowed in U-10 and above age groups. Players in U-6 and U-8 will not travel to play games and will not participate in tournaments.COMPETITIVE TEAM COACHES: A coach wishing to organize a competitive team must make a written application to, and receive approval from, the GSL Board of Directors (Board). Coaching applications should be received by theBoard before the September board meeting. This deadline allows for the Board to approve the team so that the Registrar can assist the coach in notifying the players of tryouts before the end of the recreational season. Coaches must strive to meet state license requirements to coach a competitive team. Coaches are encouraged to have a level F minimum coaches license for U-10, level E for U-12, and level D for U-14 and above.RULES FOR PRACTICE TIME: Rules for practice are the same as regular recreational League practices, with the exception that all practices, including weekend practices, may not exceed the 6 hours per week.COMPETITIVE TEAM FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES: Coaches of competitive teams are responsible for collecting all monies and for accounting to the League Treasurer and players' parents.

This fee will be an amount set by the GSL Board. It may differ from the amount of the recreational season registration.Coaches must also notify the League Treasurer of any fees that are needed at least 20 days in advance. The checks require two signatures. Please do not wait until the last minute to request funds. The League Registrar does not have information on tournaments. Please go to NMYSA or sponsoring soccer club website for information about tournaments. It is recommended that each competitive team have a final meeting or make a final decision to either divide up the remaining funds in their account, donate it to a future competitive team, or donate it to the Soccer League. Even if the team plans to have a team the following year, all of the players will probably not return, so it is recommended that the parents and coach that contributed to the team account make a mutual decision as to how to disburse the funds at the end of the season.GUEST PLAYERS: Guest players must be registered with the Registrar 10 days prior to a tournament in which the player wishes to play. Guest players will be assessed a $5.00 fee per tournament. The completed guest registration form must be submitted with the fee from the Treasurer.

GSL recreational League age group. Board approval must be obtained for a coach to invite players above the player's regular recreation League age group. These requests must be submitted in writing to the Board. This only applies to age groups where GSL has recreational League soccer, not above U-14.If a coach desires to fill roster spots that become available due to players leaving the team, the spots will be filled at the coaches' discretion.
