OLD BUSINESS:

 

 

 

 

Website Update

Mike Hyatt

Website: all clubs ought to be able to add information on upcoming

 

 

 

tournaments, pictures of wins, etc.

 

 

 

 

Clubs to Email their news/information to:

 

 

 

 

webmaster@gcfsoccer.com

 

 

 

 

Graphics have been approved. Joe Biber will be loading information soon.

 

 

 

Page with directions and maps will be removed, and instead a hyper-link

 

 

 

will be added.

 

 

 

 

Clubs are requested to ensure the directions to their fields are correct.

 

Fields Assigned

Mike Sroka

Requests Clubs ensure that their fields have been selected and assigned for

 

 

 

the correct age groups. Not all clubs have up to date information and this

 

 

 

delays the requested reschedules.

 

 

Build Out Line

Mike Hyatt

Experience as referee was positive, however found it difficult to figure out

 

 

 

what the keeper's intention was without hampering flow of play.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Latest information regarding Build Out Line was updated within the week

 

 

 

of previous meeting. Referees are not accessing the latest (revised)

 

 

 

version.

 

 

 

Maitland suggest a training video to educate referees and Clubs, with a link

 

 

 

on GCF website.

6.

NEW BUSINESS

 

 

 

Game Reschedules

Mike Hyatt

Games are to be played by the end of the season, however too many

 

 

 

requests are being submitted last minute.

 

 

 

Referees depend on the income.

 

 

 

Current Assigners deadline for canceling games is Thursday.

 

 

 

Request that Clubs look at the schedule, including school district important

 

 

 

dates, local event dates, etc so that games are not scheduled from the very

 

 

 

beginning.

 

 

 

Games may be played during the week.

 

 

 

Proposed recommendation by GCF for reschedule deadlines:

 

 

 

If game is rescheduled later than Wednesday midday, club requesting

 

 

 

reschedule must pay the referee fees.

 

 

 

This is to be revisited at a later meeting.

Rules

Mike Hyatt

Rules ought to include an amendment date so that coaches may have

 

 

 

proof that their version of rules are latest version (if needed) to compare

 

 

 

with referees.

 

 

 

Referees are addressing parents directly when they ought to go to the
