2016 CYSA WCTF 3v3 Jamboree

On Saturday October 15th from 1:00-5:00PM, CYSA is proud to partner with Wishes Come True Foundation for the fourth annual 3v3 charity soccer Jamboree. Wishes Come True Foundation, which is a Warwick Rhode Island based organization, has been granting wishes to children with life threatening illnesses. CYSA is proud to partner with this family organization. Teams of up to 6 players will help raise money to help grant that wish. A portion of the money raised will also help support the CYSA Scholarship Fund.

CYSA youth registered players use the Chariho Participant form, Non-CYSA registered youth and adults print out the Chariho Parent and Guest form along with the Jamboree rules and flyer.

Please feel free to circulate and share the tournament flyer.

New Birth-Year Registration Information

The following information is being provided to help families understand changes to the birth-year grouping going into effect this fall.  The following is a quote from US Youth Soccer:

BIRTH-YEAR REGISTRATION
Birth-year registration calendars will now align with the start of the calendar year and run from January to December, rather than August to July as it had previously. For example, a U-15 player (players 15 years old or younger) would have a birth year of 2000 (Jan. 1 through Dec. 31) for the 2015 registration year.  In 2016, U-15 players would be born in 2001 or earlier. Birth-year registration applies to all player age groups and not just players age 12 and younger.

 

The initiative will align registration with the international standard, while simultaneously providing clearer information on player birth dates to combat ‘relative age effect’.

 

Relative age effect refers to the selection bias related to players that are more physically mature than their peers due to being born earlier in the year. U.S. Soccer seeks a balance of players that are born throughout the year so that all players, those born in the earlier months, and those born later have equal opportunity to grow and develop as soccer players.

 

“It makes the process easier,” Ramos said of the birth-year registration initiative. “Over the years you go through coaching youth soccer and you are constantly finding parents and players confused about what age group players belong in. The current August 1 cutoff meant that two players born in the same year could be in different age groups. To make it more confusing, different school systems have different cutoff months for going into the new grades. It was just very difficult for parents to take it all in. This new calendar year system makes soccer easier. If you’re born in a certain year you belong in that certain age group. Simple. It also puts our players on the same age-playing calendar as the rest of the world so they will be used to competing in the right age group.  That makes it much easier for us to scout for the National Teams and find players ready to compete internationally.”

 

The birth-year registration initiative will not cause the dissolution of age-group based teams that already play together, but will rather give players the opportunity to ‘play up’ with older age-groups.

More information can be found here.

Age groupings will be made according to the following age group matrix:
