East Central Soccer District Statement
This statement has been put together to help the soccer community in the East Central Soccer District understand the changes taking place for the 2016-2017 soccer season. Realize not every question will be addressed here but we will try to cover the most important items as they pertain to your child and their team.
While US Soccer Federation is giving the youth soccer communities until the Fall 2017/Spring 2018 season to come into compliance with the new initiatives, the East Central Soccer District, as directed by WI Youth Soccer (WYSA) will be implementing the new initiatives for the Fall 2016/Spring 2017 soccer season.
Due to continuing problems/issues with sideline behaviors on the parent/spectator touchline – and the impact that inappropriate behavior has upon our youth, especially upon youth referees; and the additional impact that inappropriate sideline behaviors have upon overall referee retention, East Central is implementing a SILENT WEEKEND (Oct 7&8) for all EAST CENTRAL sponsored league games at all levels.

For the past several years, state association leaders have warned that we were about to face a crisis relative to the number of officials we have. The crisis is upon us and it has reached epidemic proportions. Newspapers across the country all have the same headline in the sports section: “Schools forced to reschedule games due to officials’ shortage.” The next headline will be even worse: “Games cancelled due to a lack of sports officials.” Click here for more:
These rules apply to ALL U11-U12 games:
