While BAYS expects all of its members to practice good sportsmanship as a general rule, we believe examples of outstanding sportsmanship should be recognized and rewarded.
Accordingly, BAYS has established a Sportsmanship Award which is presented to those teams that have been nominated and subsequently selected by the sportsmanship award committee to receive the award. Teams that earn the award receive special T shirts and a team picture is posted on the BAYS website in recognition of this honor.
Nominations were received from referees and opposing coaches this season and there were a number of teams that exhibited examples of outstanding sportsmanship.
After considering all of the submissions, and having investigated the comments received, the committee has selected three teams to receive the Spring 2016 BAYS Sportsmanship Award. The three teams are: The Winchester United girls’ U-11 team, coached by Kevin Kelcourse and assisted by Janine Kutylo and Jeff Williams, The Newton Grizzlies girls’ U-11 team coached by Brendan Everett and assisted by Sean Thomas and Melissa Boucher, and The Arlington Ponders boys’ U-18/19 team, coached by Sahag Kavlakian and assisted by Will Clossey, Chuck Hannon, and Ian Gilbert.
It should be noted that these teams were recognized for demonstrating outstanding sportsmanship throughout the season and that the coaches were recognized for emphasizing sportsmanship during their previous coaching seasons as well.
Since the tone is set at the top, Kevin, Brendan, and Sahag, and their assistants, are to be congratulated for setting the proper example for their parents and players every season. They are a credit to their respective town organizations as well as to BAYS in general.
Chairman, BAYS Sportsmanship Award Committee

As a result of the United States Soccer Federation’s Recognize to Recover initiative, BAYS has adopted the following heading rules:
Heading in Games: Heading will be prohibited in U12 and younger games.
Heading in Practice: Heading will be limited in practice for players age 11-13 to a maximum of 30 minutes per week with no more than 15-20 headers per player, per week.
The following playing rule will be in effect in all U12 and younger games:
In U12 and younger play, if in the opinion of the referee, a player deliberately heads or attempts to head the ball, an indirect free kick is awarded to the opposing team. If that deliberate header or attempt to head occurs within the goal area, the indirect free kick will be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the infringement occurred. If, in the opinion of the referee, a player does not deliberately head or attempt to head the ball, then play should continue.
Several parents, coaches and referees have expressed frustration at being able to find BAYS-specific rule without having to wade through the rule-book, one by one. Following is a summary of BAYS-specific rules which can also be found under the Referee tab.

Click here for the IRS rules for independent contractors.
"If you’ve made the determination that the person you’re paying is an independent contractor, the first step is to have the contractor complete Form W-9 (PDF), Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification. This form can be used to request the correct name and Taxpayer Identification Number, or TIN, of the worker. A TIN may be either a Social Security Number (SSN), or an Employer Identification Number (EIN). The W-9 (PDF) should be kept in your files for four years for future reference in case of any questions from the worker or the IRS."
The rules require that we have the social security for all referees. We are requiring all referees to enter their social secuity number before any payments are made. The entry field is encrypted and will only be used if a referee earns $600 or more in a calendar year.
If a referee does not want to enter this information, the alternative is to download this W-9 form, fill it in and mail it to:
BAYS Referee Reporting, PO Box 536, Dover, MA 02030.
Once it has been verified, the referee may file online game reports.
