  1. If the Team Roster or Head Coaches Pledge is not included prior to the first game, it will result in a $25 fine payable to AAYSA from the respective Club.

The coach is responsible for suspending any player where the contract is not included. If a player is caught playing, in any way, without a valid contract the coach is subject to suspension and the club is liable for a $50 fine.
a.      Fees must be paid at the time of the team placement meeting or the team will be dropped.
b.      Teams that are dropped after the placement meeting or suspended by AAYSA or AACO Recreation and Parks during the course of     the season are subject to a fine of $300 per team in addition to the forfeiture of all team registration fees.
c.   Teams may be added after the placement meeting only in exceptional circumstances as approved by the league board.
d.   If the coaches name, email, and phone number are not complete in the AAYSA online registration system by midnight of the Thursday prior to the second weekend of games in any season, the Club will incur a $15 fine per team where the coaches information is not complete.
e.   Coaches that do not adhere to their suspensions as received by the Anne Arundel County Sports Supervisor or AAYSA, shall incur a $150 fine to be paid by their respective clubs to AAYSA.
f.    Out of County teams are required to pay an additional $100 per team on top of the stated AAYSA registration fee.  This fee is passed through, in its entirety, to the Anne Arundel Department of Recreation and Parks.

j     Forfeits
Off the field- If a team is unable to make their game (for any reason) and must forfeit the game, the coach is required to contact his/her organization’s commissioner or AAYSA representative of the forfeiture.  That person/commissioner then should contact the AAYSA president who will notify the County sports supervisor as well as the opposing team’s commissioner/coach.  The forfeiting coach is responsible for paying the ref fees for both teams, and must pay the referee(s) at the originally scheduled date, time, and field, unless the forfeit notice is received soon enough to avoid the scheduling of a ref for the first or last game slot at a field. 

The following penalties will be levied by AAYSA in the following instances:
  1. If the coach or team rep does not notify the team they are forfeiting, that coach’s organization must also pay a penalty of $300 to AAYSA.  If notified in advance of a forfeit by a league representative, the team not forfeiting does not need to show at the game. 
  2. On the field-If a coach arrives at the field with an insufficient number of players to play a game (see rule 8.L) causing the opposing team’s parents and players to travel to a game that will not be played, the sponsoring organization must also pay a penalty of $100 to AAYSA unless determined by the Board of sufficient extenuating circumstances.
  Any team, which forfeits two games without notifying the league president and sports supervisor (via their organization’s commissioner) of any extenuating circumstances within 24 hours of the scheduled game date/time, will be dropped from the league for the remainder of the season. The team will be subject to the $300 late-drop fine and the registration fee will not be refunded. The team will also be responsible for any and all referee or scheduling fees as appropriate. The results of all games played by the dropped team will be nullified, and standings of that division will reflect byes for games that were originally scheduled for the dropped team.

b.      All season games will be played as scheduled, unless postponed for such reasons as adverse weather, darkness, or unplayable fields. Conflicts with a specific single-date religious holiday or with school or scout-sponsored events that result in enough players missing to not allow the team to field a legal team are possible grounds for postponements or rescheduling of games. The Commissioner of the affected team must notify the sports supervisor and league board of their particular situation as soon as it is known, but no later than 2 weeks prior to the scheduled game date.

The League Director will evaluate requests for rescheduled games for reasons other than religious, school, or scouting events on a case-by-case basis.  All requests must be in the required format below:

      Required format (submit separately for each team:
•           Club Name/Commissioner Name
•           Gender/Age Group/Division/Team Name
•           Original Game Date/Time/Location
•           Reason/Conflict with School Name/Scout Troop #/Church Name and contact email/phone
•           Opposing team name/club name

Proposed reschedule date(s)/time/location that is open for both teams; no need to contact team, just look at schedule for "open" dates for both teams (Friday/Saturday/Sunday; no triple-header weekends).  If no proposed dates provided, request will be denied.
  • Rescheduling Fee: For rescheduling requests that happen within the season, organizations will be charged $32 for 7v7 games, $42 for 9v9 games, and $70 for GU18 and 11v11 games. Funds will be used to pay the ref fees that occur due to gaps created in schedule. This will lessen the impact to already scheduled games that would have been moved due to the request to avoid the gaps. Only School, Scouting, or Religious reasons are allowed for rescheduling requests. These fees will be updated and clearly displayed on the AAYSA Website.
