A Word From Our Commissioner
I would like to thank everyone for helping make this year possible for over 1800 players in our region. Without the hard work of a handful of people, there would be no Quartz Hill AYSO. We have the best region around because of great people doing great things. The pay for this is smiles from players and pride for making a difference.
The season is ending for most. There are the lucky few who will continue onto the playoffs, Tournament, and All Star competitions. Make Quartz Hill AYSO proud - play hard, do your best, and bring your Quartz Hill sportsmanship with you wherever your post season play may take you. That includes the Coaches, Parents, and Referees.
Please consider being a volunteer. Volunteering should be a fun and fulfilling experience for you. It is a chance to learn something new, or an opportunity to use the skills you already have. Start out by finding a position or task that interests you. If it is a little more of a time commitment than you can offer, find another parent who can share the responsibility. If after looking at the list of AYSO volunteer jobs and tasks, you are still too busy to take on a volunteer position but want to help - ask around. Someone always needs help making copies, dropping off flyers to schools or manning a registration table for a couple of hours. There is always something you can offer to help your team or your Region.
Players play!!! Coaches coach!!! Parents cheer!!!

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
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.
REGION 638 ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY
In the past years, Region 638 has witnessed incidents where coaches &/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 &/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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
