2015 Coaching Information
2015 Referee Information
REGION 638 ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY
In the past years, Region 638 has witnessed incidents where coaches and/or spectators questioned the calls of referees requiring referees to stop matches to deal with the situation. There have also, unfortunately, been incidents once a game has ended when coaches and/or spectators confront referees or other volunteers over decisions made during the game. This is unacceptable behavior. Please review the Zero Tolerance Policy using the link below. Coaches - it would be a good idea to discuss this policy at your practices or before games with parents and family members that may not be fully aware of the policies and philosophies of AYSO.
REGION 638 Parent Code of Conduct
AYSO is a soccer organization, a community, a lifestyle, a family, an adventure, a learning experience, a place to make memories, and a season of exciting and busy Saturdays, all wrapped up in color-coordinated jerseys and cleats. Give your child the opportunity to play soccer and learn about life, sportsmanship, and the fun of competition and physical activity with a soccer program that has been kicking around since 1964. Please review the Parent Code of Conduct so you're aware of expectations of AYSO parents. These are simple guidelines which help to make the AYSO experience a positive environment for everyone involved.

Soccer Safety Tip
The safety of our players is of the utmost importance in Quartz Hill Region 638. Please watch the video linked below about the safety requirements for soccer goals. In our region we secure our nets with several stakes to ensure they stay put. Goal keepers and other players hanging on the crossbar of the goals is a common cause of goals tipping over. Please discuss goal safety with your child so they are aware of the importance of not hanging on the goal equipment.
This video details the importance of goal safety. http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=2896814n
Shannon Boxx's message to parents of AYSO players
In response to increasing concerns about the potential risks associated with concussions the AYSO National Board of Directors launched a Concussion Task Force to develop recommendations for AYSO Regions and families. The link below will take you to the AYSO.org Concussion Information page. You'll also find the link on the Safety page in the Information navigation menu.
HELP WANTED: Quartz Hill AYSO leads the way with the Premier Referee Program in all of the High Desert! It is through dedicated volunteers that we are able to achieve this. However, more referees are needed to fill additional positions as our region grows. Please contact Tim Haddad at 943-9377 or email email@example.com to get more information about upcoming classes. You will learn more about the game of soccer by taking a referee class. So please help keep Quartz Hill at the forefront. Free whistles and uniforms provided by Quartz Hill AYSO to all referees!
