Fall 2022 NYSL Rules:
Please review the pdf for NYSL rules and changes regarding the Fall 22 season.
NYSL Mandatory Primary Roster Rule:
Teams that wish to play in NYSL must meet a minimum primary player count. Primary players are players that are primarily rostered to your team, not secondary or club passed.
Teams playing 7v7 must have 9 primary players. Teams playing 9v9 must have 11 primary players. Teams playing 11v11 must have 13 primary players.
If teams do not meet this requirement they will not be accepted into the league.
Blackout Dates & Coaching Conflicts:
Teams will not be allowed to blackout more than six (6) primary/secondary days of play. Although we try to play as many games as possible on the primary days of play (weekends), teams need to be prepared to play on the secondary day of play (weekday) due to lack of fields and referees. Days of play are shown above. Teams could be asked to play on a non-advertised day of play due to blackout dates, field availability and scheduling requirements.
As far as Coaching Conflicts, we will allow conflicts for up to two teams on any day. If coaching more than two teams, you must use blackout dates to make sure you do not have conflicts. Example given, two teams play on Saturday and the other team(s) on Sunday. We cannot honor conflicts with teams in another league. Please fill out the league conflict form found at https://nssaoffice.wufoo.com/forms/p55w1qm0uhjegq/
BENSC will use TeamSnap for our communication and team schedules. Please download the TeamSnap app as this will be the clubs primary communication tool.
You will be added to the your team that you coach as well as to the BENSC Competition Coaches group.
