As many of you may have noticed, SMYS has started using a new registration program called League Toolbox to manage our Winter Arena Season. This new program not only takes registrations, but it also creates rosters and schedules, as well as helps us communicate with coaches, referees, players, and parents. Everyone that is registered in the Winter Arena Season (players/parents, coaches, referees) has a personal account that they can access to view their schedules, team rosters, and other personal information.
Logging in to your League Toolbox account is not the same as logging in to our website or your CalSouth account, so if you have experienced difficulties or confusion trying to log in, we apologize for any inconvenience. If you registered online, you used the League Toolbox program and have an account login and password.
Over the next few weeks, we will be slowing shifting our website over to the League Toolbox web hosting site and will be eliminating part of the confusion between the two sites.
To view the Spring Arena schedules, click on the schedules button on the top menu - there you will also be able to log in to your League Toolbox account.
Thank you for your patience while we work through this transition that is going to help make San Marcos Youth Soccer a more efficient soccer league.
The following information is gathered from our website visitors:
Form information necessary to transact your requests.
We use the information to enhance your visitor experience.
Your personal information is accessible by SMYS Staff and will not be shared, sold or rented in anyway.
To safeguard your personal information, we limit access to only SMYS authorized staff only.
To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC developed the Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports initiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The Heads Up initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.
San Marco Youth Soccer supports this program and wants to make you aware of it.

Any refund requests made after the beginning of the season will be pro-rated after reducing for expenditures.
Refund requests will be processed within two weeks.

There are many websites available that provide valuable information on the craft of being a soccer referee. Below is a sample of those locations. If there is something that you think would help your fellow referees, please let us know.
North County Soccer Referees Association. This is the site of the Escondido Soccer Club, but they now assign refs for a growing number of North County Leagues, including the San Marcos Revolution. http://www.sandiegoreferees.com/index.php
San Diego Soccer Referees Association. This is the site of the San Diego association, which schedules the majority of the big tournaments. http://www.sdsrarefs.com/
San Diego County Referees Association. The third of the three Associations in town.http://www.sdcsra.com
Question: In the 30th to 36th minute of a 45-minute second half game for BU17, there was a foul that took down a player and they were injured. That player remained on the field until the coaches could be called on to attend to him. During that time, the injured player's parent ran onto the field yelling at the referees that they allowed his son to get injured because they didn't make the calls necessary to stop the rough play. The coaches from the parent's team got the parent off the field of play and away from the referees. The player was then taken off the field. During this time, the referees conferred and came back to state that the match was suspended due to the parent coming on the field.
Since the match was called in the 36th minute of the 2nd half, does the score stand as official? Should the officials have notified the coach to have the parent removed or the match would be suspended before they just suspended the match? Can they have the results of the match overturned to a forfeit for the team with whose parent entered the field of play?
Answer: We cannot understand why the referee needed to have a conference with the ARs to determine that the match was suspended. The match is automatically suspended the moment the referee allows authorized medical (or coaching) staff to enter the field to examine the player.
Surely the referee told the teams that the match had been "terminated" because of the actions of the parent, who entered the field without permission and then verbally attacked the referee.
What happens when a match is terminated is dictated by the rules of the competition (league or state/local association, etc.), not by the referee. The referee must include full details in the match report. Then the competition authority will determine what remains to be done.
