Simi Finals at JCJC

December 1, 2018 â€“ 08:00 AM

 

Presidents;
 
This Saturday we will continue our 2018 championship series at JCJC with our semi-final round. Please inform your Players, Coaches,Parents, Fans that after several being led out of the stadium by campus police in our little 8 games we will be in the spotlight  concerning our sportsmanship and actions and could possibly lose our privileges of using the college fields because of negative actions by our organization.  Please admonish them to remember that the game is between the 12 year old and under  players on the field and as such we adults have to set good sportsmanship examples. It has been proven time after time and again recently that the demeanor of the coaches on the field has a direct effect on the actions and behavior of the fans and everyone needs to be on their best behavior, win or lose. Everyone playing at JCJC on December 1st will be at USM on December 8th so, if you have not already,  please get me your proof of insurance with USM listed as additional insured as soon as possible. As customary you will need to inform your coaches to meet myself or Johnny Dear in front of the concession stand at least 30 minutes before your game time to complete the coin toss, we have an 8 game day and need to get all we can done to keep the games moving on time. Please have your two chain crew members come with your coaches also. We will have 3 referees on the field for this round and 4 in the final round and as a result some of the little infractions that go unnoticed through the regular season may be seen by the extra official, inform your coaches of this so they are not surprised, act accordingly and do not get unwanted penalties. As we all know there is a lot missed with only 2 officials on the field. I must remind everyone to have their books on hand and available for inspection by your opponent before the game at halftime and or after the game. We will not hold up a game to look for players. Remember that you are allowed 5 coaches total for the team playing on the field, you as President may also be on the sidelines with your team so please keep your sidelines clean and everyone else in the stands as our rules, safety and security dictates. Cheer teams and their two coaches may also be on the sidelines. There will be no trophies awarded this round as everyone playing will be awarded in the following round at USM, but again,  please exit the field immediately after the customary handshake so that the next game may proceed. Finally, I have attached the brackets and written out schedule for the days games. Lets all try hard to make the day a memorable one for our young players.
 
Thank you for caring about our youth.

Reminder about weighin's

 

Presidents:
 
I am sending this out again as a reminder, as for my weigh in location, I have only three time slots set, two at 8:00 am, on the 18th and one at 10:00 on the 25th. Please contact the weigh in officials in your assigned area for your time on the scales if you have not done so. It will make everything run smother. Please read and disperse to all your teams and coaches the information in the original email on how to be properly prepared for weigh in, no one will be weighed without a legible, clear picture stapled to their league registration form. This weekend is charging at us very quickly. NOTE ON THE 18th MIZE WEIGH IN LOCATION; Due to the high chances of rain  Saturday I am moving our Mize location from the youth fields to the High School we will be set up under the awnings in front of the auditorium building. For any that need it the physical address is 125 school drive, Mize, Ms. 39116

PRESIDENTS NOTIFY YOUR COACHES, TEAMS AND PARENTS,

to have your players clear picture stapled onto their official MYFAI registration form, we do not need their birth certificate,  have two copies of the team roster, one for you and one for the weigh official to keep, have your players lined up in the order they are on the roster you give the official and ready to weigh when they approach the scales. These locations, dates and times are an attempt to satisfy the requirement of holding area weigh ins where all coaches have the opportunity to witness any they are concerned about and thereby bring clarity and openness to our weigh in procedure. I encourage all to get as many players as possible to weigh in on the first week in your area, that way you can make sure all your players get weighed within the two weeks allotted. If you know you have a player that cannot make either of the Saturdays contact the weigh in officials in your area with details and something will be arranged within the two week period. Please remember that after the 25th our rules dictate that penalties apply. For your teams weigh in times, please contact Johnny Dear for the North and East area. Myron Lott for the Hattiesburg area , Tom Polk for Collins, Petal and Poplarville weigh ins, Lester Ivy for the Mize and Puckett weigh ins.

 

 

Thank you for caring about our youth:
