To NCSA Clubs, Coaches, Managers, Players, Parents, Referees, and our NCSA Community:
As we approach the Spring 2023 season I want to take this opportunity to share with everyone some of the important initiatives the league is taking.
- To protect youth referees we are designating youth referees on Match Day Forms with yellow highlighting. We have also changed our Rules of Competition to reflect that any infractions involving a youth referee will carry double the usual fine or suspension. This continues to be our mission to develop and retain youth referees which are so important for the future of our league.
- Cooperation with other leagues. Over the past several months the NCSA has participated in all NJ league roundtables. For the first time; leagues; regardless of sanctioning body have come together and pledged cooperation in sharing ideas and disciplinary actions taken. We are working towards systems that will see coaches, players, and referees that are suspended in one league from participating in other leagues until their suspensions are served.
- NCSA continues to develop our Social Media platforms as a means of communicating with players, families, and coaches. If you are not following NCSA on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, please take a moment to do so.
- We are working with our sanctioning body US Club Soccer to host Grassroots Coaching sessions throughout the Spring as a part of our commitment to equip the many volunteer coaches in our league with more tangible training.
These are only a few of the highlights of the Spring season. We hope that everyone has a fantastic Spring season.
