Laws of the Game Change Summary - 2020

On July 1, 2019 amendments to the Laws of the Game (LOTG) were introduced by IFAB and adopted by FIFA. 

Beginning with the Spring 2020 season, BAYS is adopting the LOTG amendments, with some BAYS modifications as noted. Referees will be expected to understand the current LOTG and to apply them in the matches they officiate. Coaches should also familiarize themselves with these new laws.

Spring 2021 BAYS Sportsmanship Awards

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 Team Sportsmanship Award which is presented to a boys and a girls team 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 team pictures are posted on the BAYS website in recognition of this honor.
