Roster Freeze Period is Already in Effect
In Effect as of August 1st Through the First Monday After Thanksgiving
On August 1, the roster freeze period went into effect. The start of the pre-season roster is now 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.


Late Fees Will Hit Rec Leagues Missing August 31 Registration Deadline
Having the clearing & billing processes down correctly will save you headaches later
As you're completing your league registration for Fall 2010, 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.

Free Cal South Recreational Soccer Clinics Courtesy of Kohl's
August 16 in San Marcos - Details | August 25 in Orcutt - Details
In conjunction with Kohl's, Cal South will be hosting a pair of free recreational clinics in August which are open to all recreational players, boys and girls, ages U6-U12. The first clinic, to be held on August 16 at San Elijo Elementary School in San Marcos from 5:30 - 7:30 pm, will also be hosted by San Elijo FC. The second clinic will be held on August 25 at the May Grisham Elementary School in Orcutt from 5:00 - 7:00 pm. Check-in for each clinic will occur one hour prior to their start times.

The recreational coaching clinics will be lead by Cal South Coaching Education staff, and will feature drills and activity stations that will help recreational soccer players get ready for the fall season. While space is limited for players, recreational coaches are welcome to attend, too.

Space is limited for both clinics, and to attend, you MUST register in advance. The sign-up process is very quick, and there is player registration only.

Player Activation Business Rules
With the Fall 2010-2011 season nearly underway, it's important to review one very important Cal South business rule. Regardless of the season, an "accepted" player will generate an invoice and not by the process of "activating" the team. However, make certain that when you click on "Save Application Changes" with the purpose of clearing a player, that this is the exact action you want. If you have any questions regarding the clearing process or would like to know more about the billing process, please feel free to contact the League Account Management Department or the Accounting Department.

Referees Need to Get Their Risk Management Fingerprinting Completed & Approved In Order to Officiate Youth Games
A Must If You Wish to Referee Youth Games
Cal South continues to be a leader in the KIDSAFE program by extending the Live Scan requirements of program administrators to referees officiating youth games. As with program administrators, referees may not go through Live Scan until their 18th birthday. Once a referee goes through Live Scan, it can take up to 14 days for Cal South to receive a response from the California Department of Justice. Referee Live Scan Risk Management (RM) status is maintained on the Registered Officials List (click to view).

If you have been Live Scan-approved as a coach or program administrator in the Cal South Online Registration Information System (CORIS), but your name does not appear on the Registered Officials List, then please contact Lisa Wolfs at You can also contact Lisa if you have any other questions regarding Risk Management and Live Scan.

CORIS Migration and Working with Applications
Scrub your teams of any non-returning players and help your fellow registrar.
As you complete your seasonal migration, make certain that you identify any players that will not be returning to your league. This generally applies to any competitive teams with players that are in an "assigned" status. The process of "rejecting" or removing a player on the roster and cancelling the application will permit other leagues and clubs the opportunity to register the player easily and clearly. If you have any questions regarding the migration and or the clearing of applications, please feel free to contact the League Account Management Department at 714.451.1513.


Online Automation of Player Release & Transfer Process Starting Soon
Cal South, in conjunction with Affinity Sports, will soon be launching a new feature in CORIS (the Cal South Online Registration System) that will make it possible for parents, registrars and District Commissioners to complete an online Player Release and Transfer process from start to finish for the very first time. This new development streamlines the previous paper process and integrates use of real-time tracking, a message alert system, and email notification.

The new Release and Transfer feature is currently in its Beta testing phase, and will hopefully be ready for launch later this year. For further updates, you can track its progress on the new CORIS Unplugged Twitter page at, or feel free to contact the League Account Management department for additional information at 714.451.1513.


A Helpful Reminder to League Registrars:
Updating Your Security Profiles and Contact Info
Certified registrars, do you know who has access to your league's information? Ask yourself the following question: other than yourself, who has permission to access critical league areas, such as the ability to print cards or edit player and administrator profiles? Many occasions also necessitate that we peak behind the security walls for audit purposes. Registrars, maintain your sanity, take a moment, and make sure that anyone maintaining any CORIS roles for your league are cleared through the Department of Justice, but also make sure that these individuals should be in the back-end of CORIS at all.

Secondly, and just as important, is your contact information for the current league users -- such as registrars, board members, etc. -- updated and valid for the new season? There are many occasions when the Cal South corporate staff needs to make contact or send information of vital interest to various members of your league's board of directors. Please take another moment and make sure all contact information is current and valid.
