Hello Rocklin Soccer Families,

 

The Rocklin Youth Soccer Club has officially entered into a Partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance.  We will be providing several workshops over the year for both Coaches and Parents. 

 The three workshop types that we have chosen for this year are Leading Your Organization, Second Goal Parent, and two Double-Goal Coach workshops:Coaching for Winning and Life Lessons and Culture, Practices, and Games.

We are excited about this partnership and look forward to the positive impact this will have on our club.

Implementation Plan for US Soccer Initiatives - FINAL
NorCal Premier is pleased to announce the updated implementation plan for the U.S. Soccer mandates regarding birth year registration and small-sided game formats. 
 
The NorCal Premier Board of Directors approved the plan earlier this week in accordance with the recent U.S. Soccer mandates, the recent implementation plan from US Club Soccer, the recent update to age group classification outlined in U.S. Soccer’s FAQ Document and extensive feedback from member clubs.
  • Birth Year Registration: NorCal Premier competitions will transition from scholastic year (Aug. 1 – July 31) based age groups to calendar year (Jan. 1 – Dec. 31) based age groups in 2016.  Birth year 2003 and younger age groups will transition prior to spring 2016 competitions, while birth year 2002 and older age groups will transition by Aug. 1, 2016.
  • Age Group Classification: NorCal Premier competitions will transition to the international age group classifications in 2016 (details below).  Birth year 2003 and younger age groups will transition prior to spring 2016 competitions, while birth year 2002 and older age will transition by Aug. 1, 2016.
  • Small Sided Games: NorCal Premier competitions will begin transitioning to the U.S. Soccer small-sided mandates in our spring 2016 competitions, and be fully compliant with the small-sided mandates by fall 2016.
 
The split transition timeline for implementation of birth year registration and the international age group classifications reflects the reality of the majority of Northern California’s team formation windows, as well as NorCal Premier’s competition calendar.  This means that 2003 and younger divisions will begin playing in birth year divisions for the spring 2016 league.  Meanwhile 2002 and older divisions will remain on scholastic year age groups through the State Cup finals weekend in May.
Due to the early team formation timeline of younger teams (U13 and below) NorCal Premier has always adjusted the playing format for teams in the spring to reflect their fall playing formats.  For example, U11 teams in spring season have played 11v11, while U12 teams have played with a size 5 ball, etc.  For the same reasons the playing formats for the spring league 2016 will be adjusted so that teams are playing in their fall playing formats.
Details for both the spring and fall 2016 league formats can be found below in the age group matrices.  Please keep in mind the following key points as you prepare your club for this transition:
  • Field Sizes/ Goal Sizes: NorCal Premier has received indication from U.S. Soccer that there will be a common sense and flexible approach to field and goal sizes.  In the coming weeks U.S. Soccer will release ranges for all field sizes, and NorCal Premier will update our field ranges in accordance with the U.S. Soccer recommendations.  U.S. Soccer and NorCal will continue to allow the use of 7x21 goals in both 7v7 and 9v9 game formats.
  • Referees: Due to U.S. Soccer’s decision to eliminate the two referee system, all games must either have a one or three referee system.  NorCal will continue with our current requirement of 1 referee for small-sided games.
 
Finally, at each of the RAC meetings in which we discussed the coming changes, we spoke about a change to our global calendar of competitions.  While there was overwhelming support for making a change to our calendar, we felt strongly that this was not the time to make further changes.  The issue of changing our calendar will be examined in more detail by our Rules and Competitions Committee, which will make a recommendation to the board in the coming months.
