Dear parents and coaches,
We are very excited to announce that due to the success of our current Youth/High School Winter League we decided to open a second winter league that will run parallel to our existing league. Our Winter II will start on January 7th and all teams will play eight games. All the matches will be on Saturdays starting at 4:00pm.
The cost of the league per team will be $500.00. Teams can have up to 14 players on their roster. Each player must have a membership $30.00. We will be offering multiple team discount $490.00 per team.
The deadline to register will be December 29th. Teams that pay in full will be entitled to 1 free field rental (based on availability). Save your spot with only $200.00.

We may combine age groups depending on the number of teams we get to sign up.
Any player caught playing in a division that they should not be in, all games that we can prove that they played in (roster) will be forfeited. Player will be suspended and fined.
OTWS reserves the right to combine divisions based on the number of teams registered per division.
When determining the age group for a season, the YEAR THE SEASON ENDS (in this case 2017) should be used for determining the birth year.
Medallions for 1st place winners.
GAME AGREEMENT: COACHES AND PLAYERS
By registering in the league all teams, coaches, players, and parents agree to the following agreement.
At the time of registration there are agreements that must be understood in order to create a league game. In particular, that the laws of the game are followed and that the positions of the players and referee are understood by everyone that enters the field. This being that you agree that there will be players on the field, which will include 2 goal keepers, one at each goal, and a referee. It is imperative that everyone that is involved with the game must remain within their positions as agreed upon.
(a) The players play the game… only. The players may not instruct the referee on how to call a game. The mere logistics and positions of the players make it virtually impossible for every player to see the calls exactly the same. Whether you agree or not… it is not for you to direct the calls of a game.
(b) The referee makes the call of the game…only. The referee will not instruct the players how to run, shoot or how to defend the goal as a goal-keeper. The Referee will follow the language guidance of the Referee License: ARM SIGNALS, WHISTLE, and CARDS. The referee will not engage in a verbal conversation. Should a team manager/player have a concern or wish to file a claim to open an investigation of an incident; send detailed information to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Foul, Abusive or Insulting Language / Dissent:
When a team manager/coach/player decides to step out of his/her role, and direct or challenge the referee, they are putting themselves at risk for this penalty. Remember, you are the manager/coach/player…only. You are not to direct or challenge the referee, any more than the Referee would direct you on the technique to play your position or to manage/coach your team. Do not demonstrate your verbal frustrations towards the Referee.
Zero Tolerance Policy:
All players, parents/coaches, and spectators are expected to demonstrate sporting behavior before, during and after games, scrimmages, and practices. The league has adopted a “Zero Tolerance Policy” towards verbal or physical abuse or harassment by anyone involved in the league in any capacity.
Any coach who is ejected from the game by the referee will remove himself or herself from the facility immediately. He/She will be banned from attending or coaching the next scheduled game and ca be banned for longer if so determined by OTWS Disciplinary Committee. All red cards, ejections are subject to a fine. Off the Wall Soccer reserves the right to impose fine based on severity and/or nature of the offense. The same may apply to any coach who is abusive to other coaches, players, referees and spectators included.
As a coach participating in OTWS Youth Winter/Spring League 2016-2017 I pledge to:
(a) Make the health and safety of all participants my number one responsibility. I will never place the value of winning over the safety and welfare of the players.
(b) Support and display good sportsmanship towards all players, coaches, parents, Referees, OTWS Staff as well as spectators at all times.
(c) Be a positive role model and set the standard for sportsmanship.
By Registering in the league all parents and coaches acknowledge that:
They have fully read and understand this agreement and all of its terms. They have freely and voluntarily agree that it is binding upon them, their child(ren) or the person they are guardian for, including their heirs, assigns and legal representatives.
