Minutes – Classic Council Meeting
September 19, 1999
Present – Jamie Correll; Mark Moore; ABYSA; CASL; CVYSA; CSC; GYSA; KSA; LWSA; NMYSA; TCYSA.
Minutes of last meeting approved. (Later pointed out that the new transfer rule should be INTER-club and INTRA-club transfers, not just INTRA-club.)
Point system proposal amended as follows:
The teams point total will determine it’s standings for the regular season. Three (3) points for a win; one (1) point for a tie. In the case where there are three (3) brackets in an age division (ex: East, West, Piedmont) and those three brackets do NOT have the same number of teams (ex: East=8; West=6; Piedmont=7), then the system for determining relegation and promotion of the WILDCARD or fourth team for relegation and/or promotion will be the AVERAGING SYSTEM (as used in the past – total points divided by the total number of games – counting matches only). This system will not take effect until SEPT 1, 2000.
Amended version was seconded and passed.
HFC’s Stan Engle announced that Highland Football Club was looking for a full-time Director of Player Development. Interested parties should contact HFC at 828.255.3185.
Andre Burger was nominated and installed as the Vice Chairman of Classic. (Congratulations. He may or may not have second thoughts.)
Planning Committee for Classic. Jamie Correll – Chair; Andre Burger – Vice Chair. Sitting: CASL, CVYSA, GYSA, HFC, TCYSA.
Transfer Committee – Andre Burger – Chair. Sitting: TBA.
It was brought to consider starting the season in late August. It was determined that player passes would not be valid until SEPT 1, so the idea was dropped.
Involuntary roster movement (moving players from one team to another) was discussed at length. Jamie will write Jim Cosgrove at USYSA to get the national interpretation in writing. Player development was mentioned multiple times.
ODP Coaches that have club teams in the same age division was discussed, pros and cons. Just discussed.
The younger girls teams may have a first and second division next year and it was discussed what to do with the teams that are playing up. Guidelines were suggested for allowing teams to play up in the first place. Committee formed. Jay Howell – CASL is the Chair. Sitting: CSC, GYSA.
It was announced that associations (especially from the WEST) could submit names to volunteer for the D & A Committee. That group needs people to assist in appeals and investigating discipline matters. Contact Jamie Correll for more info.
Next meeting DEC 5. Be there or be square.
