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.
Recruiting of Players
The following code of ethics, also present in the TCSL Rules, is meant to cover the recruitment of players:
Player Transfer Policy
The following is meant to cover the transfer of players:
Players will be bound to a member club when they have agreed to accept a roster position and paid part or all of the member club registration fee. Tryout fees cannot bind a player to a member club; this is a fee to tryout only.
Clubs may hold tryouts for 8U-11U after the league season has concluded, and for 12U+ after the conclusion of Summer Cup.
Any player bound to a member club cannot transfer once registered to the member club except in exceptional circumstances. Such circumstances are:
– A change of living location that makes it difficult to commute to current club.
– A team that player registered for does not come to exist.
– Both clubs must agree to any player transfer after a player is bound to a member club.
Any disagreement regarding a player transfer will be resolved by the TCSL League Office. The intent of this rule is for clubs to communicate honorably throughout this process.
It is the goal of TCSL to discourage player transfers, after the player has registered at a member club, unless it is in the best interest of the player. Member clubs will be expected to hold the player’s best interest at the fore of all decisions.
More information regarding the player transfer process is contained within the League Rules.
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.
