Try-Out Fee:
For U8-U12: A non-refundable $50 try-out fee will be required (cash or check only) in order for your son to tryout for a 2016-2017 team. This will be applied to your 2016-2017 club fees. If your son decides not to accept his roster spot the tryout fee will not be refunded. If he is cut, then your tryout fee will be refunded.
For U13/U14: A refundable $50 try-out fee will be required (cash or check only) in order for your son to tryout for a 2016-2017 team. This will be applied to your 2016-2017 club fees and will be refunded if your son is cut or does not accept his roster spot (this applies only to U13s and U14s).

Forms Required:
We would like to make the registration process more seamless this year and would like to have everything electronic. All returning players are required to complete the following:
1. Solon Soccer Club Registration form
2. A parent code of conduct form
3. A recent head shot picture of your son.
(Birth certificates are only required for new players)
Please complete the attached documents and email them together with your son’s picture to Tanya Sussman at tanyasussman@gmail.com by Friday May 27th. Please also bring a copy of the completed registration form and parent code of conduct to tryouts along with your $50 tryout fee.
 
2016-2017 Rosters:
Rosters for 2016-2017 teams will be announced after all teams have played their last league game and the season is officially over, probably between June 10-15th. This year we are requiring that once players accept their roster spot, they will have 2 weeks to pay 50% of the club fee in order to secure his position on the team. If this fee is not paid by the deadline, his roster spot will then be given to another player. 

Any questions regarding tryouts or the registration process, please email Jon Mester at jmester@nphm.com or Tanya
Sussman at tanyasussman@gmail.com
Thanks,

Spring Practice Schedule:
SSC practices are Monday and Wednesday. U8-U10 practice from 6-7:15. U11-U14 practice from 7:-8:30. (This is different than last week. I keep including the U11s in the first practice, which is incorrect). Monday's practice is at Arthur Road soccer field while Wednesday's is at Glenwillow. Please make sure your son is prepared for a cold wet practice. Today's forecast is only a high of 55 with a chance of showers. Dress warmly!

Weather Updates:
We received several emails this weekend asking if games had been cancelled because of the wet weather.  Each community decides individually if their fields can or cannot be played on because of weather. We checked our fields early on Sunday to make sure they were playable. Some communities did cancel. Look for emails the day of notifying you if your game is cancelled. 

Regarding practice, on wet days (like today) we will be inspecting our practice fields to make sure they are playable in the afternoon. An email will be sent between 4 and 5 with updates on Facebook, SSC website and the RainedOut app to notify you if practice will be cancelled. 

For thunderstorms and lightning, the referee will call a 30 minute delay in games and can cancel them if the storms continue. We will take refuge in Arthur Road or at the Glenwillow pavilion. Please be ready to pick your son up early if weather is bad. 

Soccer Camps
We've received a lot of requests for recommended soccer camps. We'll be sending a list out of one we recommend or know about later this week. 
Have a great week.

Re: Changes in Rules relative to Heading 
Attached is a current communication send down from US Club relative to the heading lawsuit.
As you may know, a resolution was reached in concussion litigation (filed in August of 2014) against US Soccer Federation, US Youth Soccer, AYSO, US Club Soccer and California Youth Soccer Association. In brief, and as part of the settlement, US Soccer and the member defendants agreed to work towards specific initiatives with respect to concussions. At the February meeting, I advised our community representatives that these changes would occur effective with spring season. After further reviewing the ruling, we will be following the recommendations from the settlement. These recommendations including: 
Modifying substitution rules to allow players who may have suffered a concussion during games to be evaluated without penalty. 

Eliminating heading for:
1) All players age 10 years old and younger, regardless of what age group program they are playing in.
2) All players in U11 programs and younger.
3) Limiting the amount of heading in practice for all players in U12 and U13 programs, no limit on heading in games.

US Soccer also recommends Health Care Professionals (HCP) be on site for major tournaments.

Effective immediately, the Ohio Travel Soccer League has eliminated heading for players and all games and practices at the U-11 program level and below. This directive is to protect players 10 years old and younger regardless of what age group they are playing in. A purposeful header by these players shall result in an indirect free kick awarded to the opponent at the spot of the infraction. If the header is in the box, it will result in an indirect free kick just outside of the box. This mandate is for all OHTSL affiliated activities, including but not limited to, OHTSL affiliated member organization league play and practices. Ohio's rules and regulations relative to coaches and players current Concussion Protocol remains in effect.

Note: The Ohio Travel Soccer League will post and appropriately disseminate any additional changes to rules, policies, guidelines, etc. when determined and as timely as possible.
If you have any questions after reviewing the memo and attachment, please feel free to contact me.
