Click on BAYS icon for more information.

gavelEnforcing Zero Tolerance

MYS policy for an official Zero Tolerance report from BAYS is clear cut meaning if MYS receives an official report the following is not negotiable:

  • The Coach is suspended for one game – this includes if the ZT is against parents on your team.
    • If the ZT is against an assistant coach then the offending coach is suspended for a game
    • A written letter of apology to the referee and organization is required by BAYS
  • Second official report within a full season (Fall & Spring) ends with dismissal of the coach for the reminder of the season.
  • An official report is a written report filed by the game center referee to BAYS.
  • BAYS requires -MYS president must take action within one week.
  • Unofficial reports will be handled by intown/travel director and do not necessary result in suspension.

If you feel that there are certain areas that need to be addressed you can fill out the form and it will go to our ref assignor and he will be able to address the situation as he feels fit.

Please submit a request to coach a travel team before the end of the spring season.  It is MYS policy that players are placed on teams first then coaches are reviewed and assigned teams.


clipboardGame Feedback 

Just a reminder of a new feature on the BAYS Website for coaches. Should you wish to make a comment positive or negative relative to a game your team participated in or wish to give comments about the performance of the referee, you have the ability to do so. Click on clipboard icon to enter feedback. You must login to the BAYS website via the Unified Login.

Once logged in, a menu entitled “BAYS – Coach” will show up in the left hand navigation column. Currently the only item on that menu is “Game Feedback” Click on that and you will be presented with games to choose from. Select the game you wish to enter a comment on and a feedback form will display. If the feedback type selected is sportsmanship, the form routes to the BAYS 2nd VP, Referee feedback routes to the BAYS referee representative. You can optionally add “share with club” in which case Sportsmanship feedback routes to both Club Presidents as well as the BAYS 2nd VP. For referee feedback, the home club referee assignor is added.

Note – only coaches of the teams involved in the game have the ability to use this function. If you click on the link and no games show up, it is because the user has not been assigned as a coach to that team. Other individuals (spectators, players, relatives) that wish to offer comments are requested to route their comments through either their coach or their club administration.
