Cal South to Give $10,000 to 7 Teams Bound for 2007 National Championships
Regional and National Donation Total: $205,000

As in the past couple of years, Cal South is donating $10,000 to each of its seven teams that are bound for the 2007 US Youth Soccer National Championships in Frisco, Texas in July, which teams may use to help ease the burden of costly travel expenses. Adding this total to the $135,000 Cal South gave to its 27 teams at the Far West Regionals last week, this brings its donation total to $205,000, with much of the money derived from State and National Cup application fees. Cal South is proud of all of its talented teams, and wishes to show its appreciation for their hard work by giving them this ultimate in Member Benefits. Good luck to you all!

------------------------

It's not too late to sign up for an ODP Day Camp!

Although the residential camps are full, there are still spots open in our day camps! These are offered in 7 different So Cal locations. We offer both team and league discounts. For more information on Cal South ODP Camps, please click here.

League Registrar Certification Test: Are you ready to test your knowledge and become certified?
As of June 4th, 2007, the Certification test will be available online for all league registrars. The questions are variations of multiple choice and True/False formats. The test will measure the candidate's knowledge of different concepts, usage of the CORIS system, as well the Rules & Regulations. Registrars must test out no later than August 31st, 2007. Test notification will come via an email with specific instructions that will also include a link and password to access the test. If you have any questions regarding the certification test, please contact the League Account Management Department at 714 451-1513.

------------------------

League Health Report:Are you making the grade?
In our continued efforts to help member leagues maintain a satisfactory status and remain proactive, we have implemented the "League Health Report." The report is unique, as it will provide a new and constructive way to inform and engage presidents, league registrars and any league board member to leap into action! The format will be straightforward and graphically charged, and therefore, much easier to read and navigate through. With a bundle of information right at your league's fingertips, the report will have information on areas such as their corporate status, player registration history, balances due and much more. The report will be sent out this month and then shortly followed by an email blast to the leagues and the Cal South board and district commissioners.

------------------------

Cal South Passes:Did you know?
The Cal South Board of Directors at the June 2nd Board Meeting moved to allow player cards for the 2007/2008 seasonal year to be printed as of July 1 and useable immediately. This should allow registrars a more flexible window in which to print and prepare cards while also allowing more flexibility in terms of summer tournament participation and bracketing.

As an additional reminder, Cal South 2006/2007 fall, spring 2007 and summer 2007 passes are valid through August 31st. Any questions regarding the use of Cal South passes should be directed to the League Account Management Dept at 714.451.1513.

Registrars: A way to make printing cards easier for administrators!
Registrars, please remember to put your administrators in the CORIS system before they go through the Live Scan Process. This will make the process of updating much more efficient. A card can not be printed unless the administrators are approved in the CORIS system. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact Lisa Wolfs at 714.451.1520 or lwolfs@calsouth.com.

------------------------

Leagues! Here's How to Sign Up to Host Your Own Live Scan Sessions.

The process is very easy. Please go to Cal South.com, and under Programs, click on Risk Management. Choose Live Scan Session Request Formand print it out. Fill out the form and fax it back to Lisa Wolfs at 714.441.0715. We will confirm the date and then you will be all set!

Do Your Recreational Coaches need a Coaching License?

Now is a great time to schedule a Youth Module to get your recreational coaches licensed! Each league can request to host their own Youth Module course for their coaches. There are two recreational coaching license levels: YM1, which is required in order to coach under 9 years old, YM3, which is required to coach kids 9 years old and above. At each Youth Module course, the coaches will be exposed to topics including the philosophy of coaching, prevention and care of soccer injuries, laws of the game, principles of attack and defense, and coaching tactics, to name a few. If this sounds like the type of opportunity you would like to present to your recreational coaches, please view the "How To" by clicking here. You may also contact Chrissy Teyechea at Cteyechea@calsouth.com with any questions or concerns which you may have.
