Welcome to Andover Soccer Association
Travel Coaches Needed for Fall 2016
ASA is currently accepting profiles for Travel Coaches for the fall 2016 travel season. APPLICATIONS DUE BY MAY 29th.
PLEASE NOTE THAT EVEN IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY COACHING A TRAVEL TEAM, YOU NEED TO RE-APPLY IF YOU HOPE TO COACH AGAIN IN THE FALL. DO NOT ASSUME THAT THE COMMITTEE KNOWS YOU WANT TO COACH AGAIN.
Coaching a travel team is a sizable commitment that is fun and very rewarding. Travel teams typically practice twice per week for an hour and a half each practice. Games are on Saturdays, and half the games are home and half the games are away.
As an organization, we are always striving to improve the quality of coaching within the ASA system. One way to do that is to recruit and encourage new participants and introduce new ideas to the mix. With that in mind, please encourage friends and other parents who have a desire to contribute to the development of our children.
Thank you for considering taking on this valuable role. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Dan O'Toole at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Travel: Fall ONLY vs. BOTH Fall & Spring
Did you register your player for Fall ONLY in order to split up the payments OR is your player ONLY able to play in the Fall?
Fall ONLY is for the player who is ONLY playing soccer during the Fall season. If your player will play BOTH Fall 2016 AND Spring 2017 seasons, then he/she must be registered for FS BOTH Fall 2016 & Spring 2017.
If you registered for Fall ONLY because you had trouble navigating Korrio to divide your payment into two installments (Fall 2016 & Spring 2017), please let the Travel Registrar know: email@example.com. She will adjust your registration, credit the new program with your initial payment, send a new confirmation, and share instructions on how to make the Spring 2017 payment now or in late fall.
If your player is a true Fall ONLY player, and you haven’t confirmed that with the Travel Registrar, please send her a quick note saying: "My child is only playing soccer this Fall.” Please include player’s name and entering Grade in Fall 2016.
Questions or to reach out to the Travel Registrar: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't "Take a Knee"
ECYSA reminds coaches that players who are not injured should NOT be instructed to "take a knee" when another player on the field is injured. Referees are reminded to instruct non-injured players to stand up and move away from the injured player. Players may take this opportunity to huddle as a team or go to their sideline for water (without leaving the field). This prevents players from crowding around the injured player, allows for clear identification of the injured player, and reduces the risk of injury/cramping for other players. This is not an opportunity for coaches to enter the field and give players tactical instruction.
