As we approach opening weekend, the WYSL would like to give you an update on the major changes with League play that we have been working on with many of you these past few months.

Game Line-Up Card:
We are moving forward with our plans to eliminate player/coach individual printed pass cards for all WYSL Travel games. Starting for fall we will only be accepting a hard copy of the Game Line-Up Card at game check-in. Clubs and Coaches will no longer have to manage, control, and handle separate player cards for League games! The new Game Line-Up Card will be listed on your team's Sports Illustrated Play print roster page. We do anticipate some minor revisions but all functionality is ready. Please go to your team page and choose WYSL Game Line Up with Photos.

Please Note: The Game Line-Up Cards will be date stamped. Only Approved Game Line-Up Cards dated from the Wednesday or later of the game week will be accepted by the referee. The procedure will require the coach or designee to print out the Game Line Up Card each game week, (anytime from Wednesday at 12:01 AM up to the morning of the Sunday's game) and present to the referee at check-in.

Red Cards:
Red cards will be processed online by close of business on Tuesday of each game week with the names of Players/Coaches Red Carded appearing crossed out on the Game Line-Up Card for the following week.

Player Photos:
We are asking each Club to take extra effort to ensure that their parents have uploaded a clear and recent player headshot (no hats or sunglasses allowed) so our referees will not have issues verifying the player identity at game check-in. Please take note that if the referee is unable to verify the players identify from the image on the Game Line-Up Card, that child will not be allowed to play.

Printed Passes for Outside the League Tournaments:
Teams attending NY State Cup or other tournaments may still require a separate player/coach pass. Coaches can contact the League office and we will print and laminate player cards for a $5.00 fee each, if requested. Please check with the Tournament Director first, since many are now accepting PDF of your Roster/ Line Up Card with images in lieu of individual cards.

New Procedure for Intra-Club Guest Players:
In addition to filling out the Guest Player Borrowing form, the borrowing team will write in the guest player's name(s) on the space provided on the top of his/her Game Line-Up Card and obtain a copy of the Game Line- Up Card of player's team of record to present to the game referee. Teams may now borrow up to 5 age-appropriate guest players from other teams within their Club (with normal limitations).

Sporting Behavior:
The WYSL board has approved dropping our current rating system since it has been largely and increasingly been ineffective, and has decided to take a more aggressive stance enforcing and enhancing our card system. Yellow Cards for the coaching staff now carrying a $100.00 fine and Coach Red Cards will now carry a $500.00 fine with a minimum one-week suspension. As you know, coach /parent sideline behavior has caused a serious referee retention issue, critically impacting our ability to assign referees at your games. These fines, along with other measures, I will highlight at our meeting are directly intended to address behavioral issues.

More details and our other rules changes will be presented at the Pre-season General Meeting on Wednesday, September 5th. Please make every effort to attend. If you cannot attend, you must send a designated club representative.

I like all of these changes I hope the metro are leagues all adopt.
The fine for a volunteer coach for getting a red for poor parent behavior is a “wow”
I am in 100% agreement change is needed to cure the coach/parent poor behavior.
