Soccer Goal Safety Is Critical

 Safety of players is very is a high priority priority for WMYSA. It is critical that Clubs, Coaches, Referees, and Parents are aware and diligent about Goal Safety. Before each game please monitor the goals to assure that they are properly secured. If not secured please find a means to secure before the match is played.

Risk Management Update:

A. MSYSA is now requiring it to be submitted annually. The cost is $7.50.

B. WMYSA will not provide coach vouchers any longer. The cost to WMYSA needs to be managed.


C. WMYSA decided to transition away from paying for these vouchers. Instead we implemented a three-year phase out where we will provide a club credit for each WMYSA sponsored team. In 2017-2016 we are providing credit for up to two individuals per team. This is estimated to cost WMYSA about $2,300. In the 2018-2019 season, it will be reduced to one per team at an estimated cost to WMYSA of $1,000. Then in 2019-2020 it will be phasing out completely.
