Week 2: New Covid-19 Guidance for the Use of Masks

In accordance with the California Department of Public Health’s latest guidance for the use of masks, proper face coverings over mouth AND nose are required when indoors at any of our indoor game locations and must be worn by everyone at all times. The only exception to this rule is players when they are actively participating in game play (players are required to wear masks while on the bench).

These protocols must be followed to ensure we continue receiving conditional use permits from the Irvine and Tustin Unified School Districts. If anyone does not comply they will be asked to leave the gym. Please note that if these procedures are not followed correctly we may be forced to cancel or forfeit games accordingly.

Rookie Divisions

  1. The start time on each week’s schedule denotes the prompt start time of practice. Please remind your team’s parents to arrive before that time to make sure each session starts and finishes on time.
  2. Rookie Division coordinators are the following people. Reach out to your corresponding commissioner if you have any issues.
    1. Boys TK: Tim ([email protected]) • ‪(949) 522-5490‬
    2. Boys K: Tommy ([email protected]) • ‪(949) 522-5490‬

Youth Divisions

  1. Players who are missing shorts will receive them the first weekend back after the holiday break. We will deliver the shorts to each gym on game day.
  2. For team practices, make sure your conditional use permit is accessible while on location in case it needs to be presented to a school or city staff member.

Team Schedules + Coach Feedback Form

We hope everyone met their teams and is ready for League games to start this weekend!

Team Schedules: Please make sure to check the schedule on our website every Friday to verify your game time. Some divisions will have double headers.

Please do not add the schedule manually anywhere and refer your players to the schedule on our website. If you have added any games in TeamSnap please delete them. Each game is scheduled for both teams and any data input runs the risk of user error. Furthermore, if we make a schedule change it would not be automatically updated in your TeamSnap as we do not control it.

Coach Feedback Form

At this point all teams should have signed up for a practice court allocation. To ensure that all players have been contacted and that they are also responding to you, we have put together a feedback form for coaches to complete. Please complete this by Thursday, Dec. 9th. This is mandatory. We want to make sure your teams are starting the season on a great note.

https://socalelite.org/leagues/coach-feedback/

Note: If you have any issues with a specific player later in the season you can complete this form out again.

Reminders

Please make sure to visit the Coaches Portal for the following:
1. League rules.
2. Practice court allocations – 2nd practice date opens Fri, Dec. 10th.
3. New – League parents can be directed to the updates page for all league communication: Rookie Divisions | Youth Divisions
4. New – All coach communication will be compiled on one page from now on to stay organized. View here: https://socalelite.org/leagues/coaches/updates/

Head Coaches

We will be contacting Head Coaches directly as we select them and set-up their teams on TeamSnap. We will start with contacting all Head Coaches in the Youth Divisions that have filled out the coaches registration.

Rookie Divisions coaches will not be selected until we start building teams as the process of team formation is different.
