GCF Division Playoffs and Awards
Saturday, May 10th

NOTE: Please read all.  We have included some updates.

ALL GCF League games must be played (last day is Sunday, May 4th) AND their scores must be entered into GotSoccer by midnight on Monday, May 5th in order to qualify for Division III playoffs.  Due to weather this past weekend (May 3rd), Divisions I/II have through Sunday, May 18th to play their games in order to qualify for first/second place. All scores must be entered by 7 pm on Monday, May 19th.

QUALIFYING - Some Clarifications
First off, if a game is not played, just leave the score blank and it will be considered as "not played" for the standings. Do NOT enter a score of 0-0.
The ultimate goal is for all of the games to be played. So if your team has missing games, you are free to play these games through Sunday, May 18th.

Division I/II Awards

Awards will be given to the top two teams in each division (1st and 2nd place).

NOTE:  Original plans were for a Division I playoff this spring between three leagues (GCF, NFYSL and BYSL).  That couldn't be arranged for this spring but we will have it starting in the Fall.

Division III Playoffs

Games will be played on Saturday, May 10th.  Location will be at the Dewey O'Boster Soccer Complex (Deltona).  The schedule will be up by Wednesday, May 7th.

Semifinals
1st place vs 4th place and 2nd place vs 3rd place for four team playoff divisions
2nd place vs 3rd place for three team playoff divisions

Finals
Semifinal winner A vs Semifinal winner B for four team playoff divisions
1st place vs semifinal winner of 2nd place vs 3rd place for three team playoff divisions

NOTE: Age groups with two divisions will send the top four teams from each grouping.  There will be a winner from each group.  There will NOT be a third game between the winners of each group.

NOTE for Division III
Division 3 playoffs will be set from the standings as of midnight on Monday, May 5. The top 4 teams will be invited. Divisions that are split into Red and Blue will have the top 4 from each invited. If your team is invited and cannot play, please email the 1stVP@gcfsoccer.com ASAP so that the next team in the standings can be invited. It would be really disappointing if we get no-shows when another team could have filled in. Invites and seeding will be sent out by Tuesday, May 6th.
That being said, the ultimate goal is for all of the games to be played. So if your Division 3 team has missing games, you are free to play these games through Sunday, May 18th. The games will count in the regular season standings, but we just won't be able to turn back time and get you into the playoffs. It is unfortunate that all games weren't able to be played before the tournament, but hopefully this will help everyone get their eight spring league games in.

New Items for Fall 2013

GotSoccer - Game Score Reporting Guide for Coaches (Forms link)

FYSA Required - GCF League Game Report for Referees (Forms link)

Game Fields - Nav Menu = Select Game Info then Fields

Rule changes – Starting Fall 2013
 
Rule change #1  (for all divisions) – Passed on March 4, 2013
 
Mercy Rule
When an eight (8) goal differential has been met, the game will be concluded. The game must be played to halftime. If an eight (8) goal differential exists at that point, then the game is concluded. At any point in the second half that an eight (8) goal differential has been met, then the game is concluded.
 
Rule change #2  (for all divisions) – Passed on March 4, 2013
 
Substitution
There will be unlimited substitutions at any stoppage of play. ALL substitutions are at the referee’s discretion. All substitutes are to be at the midfield line before the stoppage of play.
 
Note: Rule change #2 is to get us on par with FYSA State Cup and popular Florida tournaments. It is for all divisions. Also, the parts that are underlined GCF really wants the referees to be on top of this. It’s really easy to time waste with this rule, which is NOT the intent.

GCF - Rules of Play
State Cup Rules Modification

The GCF State Cup Rules of Play were modified at the August 12, 2010 Monthly Meeting. Since FYSA currently does not have an Event Roster, the following was added to I. Registration and referenced in III. General Guidelines (#2)

  1. Teams are to attach a completed guest player form (signed by their club registrars) to their rosters for each intra-club guest player. (New Fall 2010)

The GCF Rules of Play were updated per the GCF Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2010 and March, 1 2010 Monthly Meeting.

These rules are in effect for all GCF games, starting 2010. All coaches and referees are encouraged to download a copy to study and be aware of and should bring with them to games.

Note: team colors for games - The home team should wear light colored jerseys and the visitors should wear dark colored jerseys.
