The notes from the meeting when this was decided mentions Fall 2012.  Has this 
changed?   No nothing has changed. Classes run March and the month of August 
normally. You should think about your class time schedule. You should start 

Also, is this common practice to bring something up at a Board meeting, have a 
vote and than it's a rule.  Sometimes   Shouldn't this be open to a coaches 
meeting and discussion versus a meeting where only 10 - 11 people attend a board 
meeting and make a decision?  Any issues concerning the league get voted on by 
the board. Coaches, parents or concerned parties are more than welcome to bring 
their opinions to the board meetings.  Communicate with your Comp 
Dir.   Normally there is an agenda item for discussion so there is enough people 
to assist in making the decision. Not a select few.If there was, I never 
received an email as a coach that a decision is going to be made about this and 
you should attend.  

Do coaches make decisions about referee requirements or suggestions?  Yes, but  
only U8 and the upper recreation levels in house rules.  Requesting for ref's. 
 Just curious because it doesn't seem transparent in decision making. The laws 
are handed down from the CCSL league, along with the FIFA laws of the game. I 
have refresher class to inform referee's. I have asked coaches to show at my 
meetings, not one has shown up. I ask for feedback and I do receive a few of

Referee Director: No new refs (would like to see old comp coaches); we’ve lost 
some old ones and there is no new ones. Question from Jorge: Can we make it 
mandatory that if you coach with basic license that you also get a ref license? 
CYSA rule says that to get your D License, you have to get your ref license as 
well. More discussions followed and Jorge makes a motion that every comp head 
coach, regardless of coaching license, needs to have a ref license within a year 
of coaching, starting with Fall of 2012 season. Motion 2nd by Claudio; voted: 
Yea= 7 No= 1 abstain=3; motion passes.Yours In Soccer,
