All referees are to be paid when they show up for a game regardless if the game is canceled or didn’t start due to weather

Only the Club President, Club Director or Canton Township can close fields or cancel games before they are attended. Once both teams are in attendance it is the referee who determines if the field is playable and it is the referee who enforces the CSC weather policy

Referees are also responsible for ensuring the safety of all players, parents and coaches at each game.  This includes, but is not limited to: Enforcing the weather policy, walking the field prior to each game to check for holes, debris, sprinkler heads, goal locks, etc. 

SPECIAL NOTE: During games where high winds are present or expected referees must confirm that goal locks are in place and functioning.

Parents are subject to a club late fee and the additional league costs for late add ins.

After the registration deadline passes parents may fill out a wait list request form.  If there are openings on any teams where we have wait list requests we will fill those spots in the order in which the wait list requests were received.  Players can only be added up to each leagues final late add on date, or no later then one game into the season assuming the club can still obtain a proper uniform kit for each addition.

Recreational players will receive a uniform kit consisting of a light color and a dark color jersey. All uniforms purchased will be Nike branded per agreement with Nike and embellished with the CSC logo.  All CSC teams will be required to wear one of these two jerseys in any CSC sanctioned league or tournament game.  

Non-Nike brand and CSC logoed jerseys are only allowed for practice

A sanctioned league game is defined as a game that is scheduled by a scheduling league. i.e. all In-House games and all WSSL games are considered sanctioned league games.

A sanctioned tournament is defined as any tournament approved by MSYSA or other USYSA governing body.

Select and Premier uniform numbers shall not be duplicated across an age group.  Current players of an age group retain their existing number.  Subsequent number selection shall start with the black team, white, green, and so on until all teams have picked.  Uniforms are on a 2 year cycle and parents will be required to purchase a “new” uniform if their number comes in conflict with an existing player.  This may happen but is not limited to players who move up or down in age or who maybe dual rostered.  Teams should try to accommodate numbers across different age groups if at all possible in these instances.
