To that end, it is TCSL’s goal to provide a structured league environment for member clubs to participate in, so that clubs can develop their players to their highest potential. All participants are expected to hold themselves to a high standard at all times. Adult participants are expected to be role models AND LEADERS WITHIN THE SOCCER ENVIRONMENT.
5.2 Bound to Member Club
Players will be bound to a Member Club:
Tryout fees cannot bind a player to a Member Club; this is a fee to tryout only.
5.3 Player Transfer Process
Any player bound to a Member Club cannot transfer once registered to the Member Club except in exceptional circumstances.
Such circumstances are:
Any disagreement regarding a player transfer will be resolved by the TCSL League Office.
The Player Transfer Form will be used for player transfers and both Member Clubs must fill out and sign all parts.
5.4.2 Player Contact Initiated by Adult
Coaches and adults (including Club personnel, and parents of players) are not allowed to contact any players from another TCSL Club as long as the player(s) in question are bound to another Club.
5.4.3 Contact Initiated by Player
If a player initiates contact with a coach during regular season play, the coach must ask the player in writing if they are committed to another TCSL Club. If so, then the player will be asked to inform their current Club in writing of their intent to try-out for another Club before any further action may be taken, and the current Club must agree in writing to said tryout or training.
The safety of the players, coaches, management and spectators are of primary concern during any weather event that occurs during a match. The Referee has final say over delaying a game due to weather (with the exception of tournament events in most cases, where tournament administrators generally own this responsibility). Waiting to stop play may result in a serious injury or loss of life. Act responsibly when dealing with such events during all games.
To determine the distance of lightning in your area, count the number of seconds between the flash and the first sound of the thunder and divide by five. This will give you the distance in miles from your location. Remember, if you are in a higher elevation, the lightning can come upon you much quicker and your reaction time is greatly hindered.
Recognizing the threat
Seeking Proper Shelter
No place outside is safe near thunderstorms. The best shelter is a large, fully enclosed, substantially constructed building. A vehicle with a solid metal roof and metal sides is a reasonable second choice.
