Updates to the BAYS Zero Tolerance Policy and Match Rule 15 the Support for Match Officials rule, have been made to ensure match officials are supported.


Coaches must wear their credentials on the sidelines at all games and must bring 2 paper copies of their official team roster. Valid credentials are a Mass Youth Soccer / US Soccer requirement. 


BAYS will send out automatic emails to all coaches 72 hours prior to a scheduled game with game details, a review of credential and roster requirements, and a link to coaches responsibilities including information on the BAYS ZT Policy and Lopsided Score Management Suggestions. We hope this communication will assist coaches in being properly prepared for game day.


The BAYS RESPECT Campaign is ongoing. We ask that you continue to have a member of your club – coach, player, or referee – read the Respect Statement at each game. It helps set a positive tone and reminds all involved about good sportsmanship.
