Zero Tolerance Reminder...
MYS strongly values and enforces the Zero Tolerance Policy. MYS is confident our coaches and parents will teach by example how to appropriately react and handle the difficult situations which stem from an exciting and competitive soccer game.
MYS policy for an official Zero Tolerance report from BAYS is black and white meaning if MYS receives an official report the following is not negotiable:
The Coach is suspended for one game.
Second official report 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.
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. You must login to the BAYS website via the Unified Login (under the Administration Tab at the top of the website). 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.

ATTENTION ALL INDOOR SOCCER PARTICIPANTS:
All MA Youth Soccer member towns are in an insurance program sponsored by MA Youth Soccer.We have been reminded by MA Youth Soccer that the insurance coverage that is in place for Mansfield Youth Soccer's insurance coverage during the spring and fall season does not extend to indoor soccer. In the past it has covered coach's, but it no longer covers our coaching staff for indoor soccer. If you coach indoor soccer, you will not have coverage through our program.
A Note of Thanks...
A travel coach was kind enough to let us know what he thought of MYS:
Just wanted to drop you a quick email of thanks to your coaches and official for being such great hosts this past weekend. I was especially impressed with the young official that worked the game. She didn't appear to be very old, however she managed the game with that of an experienced official. She moved around the field well, made the calls with conviction and her hand signals were very visible. I don't think I heard one moan or complaint from either coach or group of parents and that is to be commended.
