ALL APPLICATIONS THAT WERE NOT COMPLETED BY APRIL 15TH ARE NOW CONSIDERED DELINQUENT. DON'T COMPROMISE YOUR LEAGUE'S STANDING!
A late fee of $100.00 will now be applied to all delinquent league application submissions.
The Youth League Application remains open to all leagues that have not submitted a youth league application. Youth League Applications had to be completed by April 15, 2010. The application process was recently made available online, but leagues needing to begin the process are asked to click here first in order to review several helpful documents that should help them complete the process smoothly.
There is also a link on that page which will take the league representative to the online Youth League Application site where they will be asked to create a user account to log in to the system. If you are already set to begin the process, you can click here to go to the Youth League Application site directly.
On that note, many leagues have already started the new online application process but have fallen short of completing the process in its entirety. Because the process requires exact and detailed information, it is vital that that all requirements are met, otherwise a delay in the final processing of your Youth League Application may occur. For additional information, click on the links above, or if you have further questions, please contact the Cal South League Account

REFEREES NEED TO GET THEIR RISK MANAGEMENT FINGERPRINTING COMPLETED AND APPROVED IN ORDER TO REFEREE YOUTH GAMES
A Must If You Wish to Referee Games for the 2010-2011 Season
Cal South sent out a reminder last week to all referees who did not have their Risk Management status marked as Approved for the coming season.
They were reminded that:
- It can take up to 14 days for approval of your Live Scan fingerprinting to come back from the California Department of Justice. Referees are advised to get their fingerprinting done as quickly as possible in order to ensure that their approval is received by Cal South before June 30th, when the referee registration period ends.
- Any referee, 18 years or older, that has not completed the Live Scan process will NOT be able to referee any youth matches.
For all referees who will turn 18 before or after the deadline date, you will have 90 days from the date you turn 18 to complete your Risk Management. If you are a minor or about to turn 18, please do not get your Live Scan done, as the Department of Justice will not accept your Live Scan until you have actually turned 18, and then you will have to complete the process again.
If you have already gone through the Live Scan process as a coach or for other administrative roles and would like to check your status, or if you have any other questions regarding Risk Management and Live Scan, you can contact Sangita Nichols at 714.451.1501 or email@example.com.

CAL SOUTH ANNUAL PLAYER REGISTRATION AUDIT WILL BEGIN ON JULY 1, 2010
Moratorium Placed on 2009-2010 CORIS Applications
The official start of the 2010-2011 seasonal year is less than three months away, officially beginning on September 1, 2010! In tandem with this, Cal South will be embarking on its annual player registration audit, which will begin in earnest on July 1, 2010. 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 2009-2010
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.
CAL SOUTH OFFICIAL LOGOS, INFO & NAME TEXT FOR MEMBER LEAGUE WEBSITES
New Resource Created to Aid Webmasters & League Admins in Solidifying Identification with Cal South
As part of a drive to help solidify the identification in the public eye between Cal South and its member leagues, and as a direct result of the recent amendment about the organization's name change, a resource has been created so that member leagues can easily access basic Cal South information and graphics for use on their websites.
Many long-standing member leagues still have Cal South logos from many years back which are outdated, in addition to having older terms (such as CYSA-S) instead of Cal South, in prominent places on their websites. To get the fullest benefit possible in affiliating with Cal South, member leagues and clubs should seek to strengthen the bond of identification between their organization and its members with that of Cal South. One of the simplest ways to do this is to provide readily
available information about Cal South, along with a proper logo and hyperlink to our homepage.
By clicking here, you will find a resource page on CalSouth.com .which will provide you with a variety of logo formats (in both JPG and EPS versions), along with boilerplate (About Cal South) text and proper URLS for several Cal South sites. This is not a demand to use all of the information provided. We are simply providing the information because we get many requests
every year for such materials, and each individual club is left to decide what they might or might not use on their own site.
