Recreational - Playoff Weekend

 

This season, the PYSA recreational playoffs will be played over a single weekend, November 7-9, in more of a tournament-style of play.  The competition will remain a single-elimination tournament, and will be played in a span of 3 days.  Changing to this format will give teams a more authentic tournament experience and allows PYSA more flexibility in scheduling and field use.

 

The playoff tournament will be held at three facilities (Cheyenne Park, Carpenter Park, and Russell Creek Park).  The U9 and U10 championship finals will be on Saturday, and finals for the remaining age groups will be on Sunday, in typical tournament fashion. 

 

The U16 and U19 age groups will not play on Friday night to allow for high school activities (football, band, drill team), and the U19s games will start later in the day on Saturday to avoid conflicts with SAT and ACT testing.

 

We realize that this is a big change from what we have done in the past, but putting the games on one weekend allows us more access to fields, and will enable us to more easily account for rainouts.  Using the old format, and given the increasing crunch on field availability, we could not have finished our playoffs prior to our field use deadlines with the City of Plano or in time to meet NTSSA Tournament of Champions submissions deadlines.

 

We are hoping a month’s advance notice on the schedule will allow teams to manage the format change.  We will have no latitude in dealing with schedule conflicts, and none will be considered.  We have done our best to anticipate the “big stuff.” 

 

PYSA will continue to explore different approaches to the way it conducts business, as we seek to better utilize our resources, deliver a better product, and in the end, provide a better soccer experience to its members and members of its partner associations.

 

One final note about playoffs:  Playoffs are “extra” games.  They are an optional competition designed to provide our best teams with a more competitive outlet than regular season play.  Participation in the competition is a privilege, not a right.  

 

PYSA reserves the right to deny playoff participation (and Tournament of Champions consideration) to any team for unacceptable behavior, unruly conduct, persistent or critical rules violations, or other activities that run counter to the spirit of recreational soccer.  These include, but are not limited to the use of illegal or ineligible players, unethical behavior (by coaches, spectators, or players), playing time violations, serious or persistent misbehavior, or harassment/abuse of referees, opponents, or league personnel by players, coaches, or spectators.  This determination will be made solely by the PYSA Recreational Committee leadership, advised by the full committee and our partner associations.
