- Nothing new to report

Scheduling & Format:

- Discussed the need for “Classic and Premier” at the U9 and U10 age groups. It was recommended that the scheduler address it each season.  Charlie Smyth recommends that each club try the approach of making multiple teams of a more balanced nature at these age groups. He felt that it was successful for his club and gets more players involved at the earlier ages.

- Discussed requiring the entire $245.00 fee up front for the Fall season. After much consideration, discussion, and input from Mike Stone, of the Danville Soccer Association concerning tryout timing, it was decided, by unanimous vote, that the following schedule and fees would apply to each season:

January 1 or June 1à Call-for-Teams form mailed out,

February 1 or July 1 à Call-for-Teams due back with $125.00 initial application fee,

February 15 or July 15 à Scheduling is started,

No applications will be accepted after February 15 or July 15.

An additional $50 non-refundable late fee will need to be with forms received after February 1 or July 1, and before February 15 or July 15 (A total of $175.00 must accompany a late Call-for-Team form),

March 1 or August 1 à Schedules mailed,

March 15 or August 15 à Balance of fee due ($120.00) or no Cards will be issued,

Any $50 late fee submitted will not be applied to the total $245.00 registration fee.

April 1 or September 1 à play begins**.

**These dates may fluctuate due to the Easter or Labor Day holidays.


Any team not paying the balance by March 15 or August 15 will forfeit all fees paid and games scheduled.

Teams can pay the entire $245.00 fee with the initial Call-for Teams.

An additional $50.00 performance bond fee is needed for each team if not already posted and is not included in the $245.00 fee.

Teams that cannot make these dates or chooses not to play in CIYSL can register directly with the IYSA. They can also obtain IYSA Tournament cards.  Note that if a team does not play in a league, they cannot compete in State Cup. 

WEB Report:

- There are now 6370 hits-- 426 since January 7, 2000.

Old Business

- The Long Range Planning Survey was discussed. Key things for near future include Clubs (one or two representatives—could be team managers) at board meetings and/or a club meeting just before the board annual meeting. The Survey will be addressed at the next meeting.

New Business

- David Hicks reported that the U-9 and U-10 would not play State Cup. They would participate in the Chevy Cup as a local round-robin tournament type play. 

- Charlie Smyth reported that the Orange and Blue tournament date has been changed from October 7-8 to September 30 and October 1.  He also reported a “D” License Course in Champaign on April 1-2 and 8-9. 

- A motion was presented and passed to increase the scheduling fee from $150 to $300 per season and add $150 per season for miscellaneous expenses (such as phone, paper, ink cartridges, etc.) retroactive to this spring’s effort.
