How Does Scheduling Work within NSYSA?Printable

How Does Scheduling Work within NSYSA?


Coordination Involved:

Scheduling of Youth Soccer Matches within NSYSA is a coordinated effort for all member clubs/associations that have teams who at a minimum have their home matches listed on the NSYSA Website. This includes matches for the following Leagues:

  • Washington State League (Div1, Div2, Div3, etc.)
  • Player Development League (PDL) / Regional Club League (RCL)
  • Commissioners Youth League (CYL)
  • District I, III, IV Competitive Leagues
  • NSYSA Recreational Leagues
  • Member Association (NSYSA) Recreational Small Sided Leagues

The match data for each of these leagues is listed on the NSYSA website and then linked to the Kitsap Peninsula Soccer Referee Association (KPSRA) website for their assignment of officials to all U11 and above matches within the area serviced by KPSRA. In addition, the assignment and payment of officials for any of the Small Sided Matches conducted under the authority of NSYSA is performed via the use of the NSYSA website.


NSYSA Website:

The site lists all matches conducted under the Authority of the Association which includes the following:

  • NSYSA Competitive and Recreational Leagues

This site also lists all Home Matches conducted for NSYSA Teams participating in leagues under the following Authorities:

  • Washington State League (Div1, Div2, Div3, etc.)
  • Regional Club League (RCL)
  • District I & District III Competitive Leagues
  • US Club Leagues - having NSYSA Teams participating who are Dual Registered and have agreed to pay NSYSA Scheduling Fees

Having all the above matches listed on this site, enables us to coordinate all applicable field usage and referee coverage for these competitions. It also allows us the ability to adjudicate any and all Misconducts associated with the leagues under our Authority.


NSYSA Scheduling Process:

The NSYSA Fall Scheduling Process actually commences at the conclusion of the Fall Season.

Typically in December of each year, the NSYSA Competition Committee, made up of representatives from each member club/assoc (primarily Registrars and Directors of Competition), will meet to review the status of all teams from the Fall Leagues. The intent is to review the season and identify those recreational teams that are dominating in their brackets that might be better served by playing up a year or playing in a competitive bracket. This review also identifies teams that may be looked at next fall to be held back due to having a extremely poor year (i.e. loss of all their matches).

Next, generally in late June, the NSYSA Competition Committee meets again to review the status of all new and returning District IV Competitive Teams and where they would like to play in the coming Fall Season.

In preparation for this meeting, each club registrar is asked to update their Team Data on the NSYSA Website for each competitive team playing in the fall. When they have completed those updates, they are to have each of their competitive teams submit a NSYSA Competitive Play Application. These applications enable the District to track each team, the team to tell us its preferences and desires, and the clubs/associations to review and accept/deny these applications before coming to the District for viewing at this competition committee meeting. Applicable Deadlines for these Competitive Play Applications are sent out to each Club/Association and also posted on the NSYSA Calendar for all to see. Separate deadlines are established for each of the following:

  • Applications to be submitted by Team and Approved/Denied by Club Registrars
  • Applications to be Reviewed and Approved/Denied by Association Registrars

The primary role of the NSYSA Competition Committee Meeting in June is to determine the best placement for each of these teams. It will determine for instance if there is sufficient competitive competition within the district at any particular age/gender to conduct a NSYSA Competitive League (Div1) at each age/gender and if so, which teams should be included in such a bracket. It will also determine if any other teams in that same age/gender should in fact play elsewhere (i.e. District III, I, etc.) because they are stronger than the other teams remaining within the NSYSA Div1 bracket. Overall, the goal of this Committee at this meeting is to find the best level of play for each of the competitive teams concerned.

NSYSA Fall Scheduling Meeting

Between June and August, the individual club registrars will be updating their Team Data on the NSYSA Website for each of their recreational teams in preparation for the Associations Fall Scheduling Meeting typically scheduled for early August.

At this meeting the following items will be accomplished:

  • All teams participating in the following leagues will be placed into applicable Gender/Age brackets:
    - NSYSA Competitive and Recreational Leagues
    - NSYSA Small Sided League
  • Each club will identify any special scheduling requests for each of its teams (i.e. Coaches affiliated with multiple teams will request AM starts for one team and PM Starts for another).
    It must be understood by all that these are simply requests to be taken into account when the Home Clubs work on scheduling the Field/Time for their home matches. It is not a guarantee. Use of fields and scheduling for Referee Coverage will take precedence when it comes to the scheduling of matches.
  • Each club will identify in writing any of its teams planning on participating in the Wenatchee Apple Club in accordance with the NSYSA Operating Procedures.
    Any team not properly identified by the club at this meeting will not be authorized to participate in that years Wenatchee Cup.

Within the week following the District IV Fall Scheduling Meeting:

Each member club will receive a listing of all its home matches for each of their teams playing under the Authority of District IV, KPYSA, NSYSA, CKSC or NKSC. Each club will then assign each of their individual home matches a Field/Time for the scheduled date of play and then return that listing to the District IV Scheduler for compilation.

At the same time, the District IV Scheduler is gathering team schedules for District IV teams participating in the other leagues playing in the fall (i.e. State League, PDL, ,RCL, CYL, District III and District I). We have no control over when the schedules from each of these other leagues will be ready. However, when each are received, the applicable matches are added to the list of Home Matches for each club and sent to them for assigning of Field/Time for each of those home matches. These are then also returned to the District IV Scheduler to create one consolidated listing of matches.

This consolidated list is reviewed and made public and posted on the District IV Website a minimum of two weeks prior to the start of the actual season to coincide with our contract agreement between District IV and the local referee association (Kitsap Peninsula Soccer Referee Association – KPSRA).

Changes to the published schedules and unavoidable, however the District will make every effort to keep them to a minimum. Any match change entered on the District IV Website will automatically generate a Notice to the individual identified by the applicable club registrar as Point of Contact for each team associated with that change. It is the responsibility of each team staff to check its schedule weekly to ensure they are cognizant of any and all changes made to their schedules. Only changes to a schedule made after 7 PM on Thursday for that weekends play will be notified in some other fashion.
