Think about it: hidden within all of those cheering moms, dads, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters on the sidelines of your youth soccer games, there could be some really great soccer players looking for a chance to show their skills on the pitch!

The Cal South Adult League Application deadline is August 1st, so if you are thinking of expanding your league's membership to include all ages, you need to get your completed application in by that time.

Cal South Donates $120,000 More to Its Championship-Bound Teams

Providing the ultimate in "member benefits" to its leagues and clubs, Cal South recently announced the donation of $120,000 - $10,000 each - to its twelve teams set to attend the pair of upcoming national US Youth Soccer events being contested this weekend through the next. Six Cal South teams attending the US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup from July 16-19 in Raleigh, North Carolina and six teams attending the US Youth Soccer National Championships from July 21-26 in Lancaster, Massachusetts received the stipends to help with team traveling expenses. Combined with the amounts given to teams taking part in the regionals leading into each of these national events,. and factoring in the tournament fees that Cal South also picked up for its teams in all of these events, this adds up to over $300,000 Cal South has provided this year to its participating teams.

CORIS Tool Box - Registrars Now Have Two New Tools in Their Arsenal!
Combating Duplicate Applications with Duplicate Check & Family Search Tools

In collaboration with ADG, Cal South has initiated the launch of a new internal feature to reduce and eliminate duplicate records. This new tool stemmed from our concerted efforts to increase the search and matching mechanisms for players and administrators, as well as actively reduce the number of duplicate player records as a whole. The new tool highlights if there are additional records and recommends the application to use before continuing further with the transaction. Another smart feature is that it conveniently flags a duplicate record on multiple teams by placing an (x) next to the duplicate record on the team roster screen. For more information on the use of the Duplicate Check tool, please log onto MY360 for further details.

Just as important a tool is the new "Family Search" tool which was recently launched. This feature will allow for a cross-seasonal search for players, parents, and administrators with the added bonus of the having the capability to generate new applications as long as the previous club has not accepted the player. However, there is one caveat, and that is registrars will no longer have the ability to alter the player "LName," "FName" and "DOB" once the age/legal box has been accepted. This new tool will be added to the recent Duplicate Check, which will further enhance the ability for registrars to mitigate duplicates in the system and avoid costly mistakes. For information on the use of the new "Family Search" tool, please log onto MY360 for further details.

Late Fees Will Hit Rec Leagues Missing Aug. 31st Registration Deadline
Having the clearing & billing processes down correctly will save you headaches later

As you're completing your league registration for Fall 2009, it's absolutely imperative for leagues that have recreational play to make sure that the greater part of their player registration is in the CORIS system no later than August 31st. Failure to meet the deadline (Cal South Rule will result not only in higher registration fees per player, but could also lead to lack of accident coverage for your individual players. Please contact your League Account Manager with any questions. To download and review an updated version of the Cal South Rules and Regulations, please click here.

Cal South Annual Player Registration Audit Began on July 1st
Moratorium Placed on 08-09 CORIS Applications

The start of the 2009-2010 seasonal year is less than two short months away, officially beginning on September 1, 2009! In tandem with this, Cal South has already embarked on its annual player registration audit, which began on July 1, 2009. To completely fall in line with the audit process, Cal South found it necessary to place a moratorium on the ability for leagues and clubs to generate further player/administrator applications for the fall 2008-2009 seasonal year. This will have a "zero" impact on the 2009-2010 seasonal year as well as the spring and summer '09 seasons.

Tick-Tock! Tick-Tock! The Transfer Clock is Ticking Down!
Transfer Players Up Until July 31st at 11:59 p.m.; Roster Freeze Period in Effect on August 1st

The deadline for transfers is rapidly approaching, so make certain that the coaches and administrators in your league or club are completely aware of the deadline. Players can transfer from one team to another up until July 31st at 11:59 p.m. After that, on August 1st, the roster freeze period goes into effect. The start of the preseason roster is then in full gear, effectively placing a moratorium on any movement from one team to another. In the event that a player either desires or absolutely has to move to another team, it will require a Player Transfer Waiver Form, which can be downloaded here.
