Fall 2022 Season Wrap Up
Also: Highlighting Good Sports + Winter Soccer + Spring Reg
Fall Standings Lock Out
We are locking standings at 12 PM on Wednesday! If you have scores missing for games you’ve played, please enter them before the deadline or the game will not be counted. Rain out games will also not be counted. We will then adjust any remaining forfeits and mercy rule violating games, and will share the final standings with you!
Special Thanksgiving Announcement
Happy Thanksgiving! The office is closed this week and email will be limited. Have a wonderful holiday and we look forward to reconnecting next week.
Despite it being true that this Fall season was the most challenging from a Fair Play perspective - particularly on the sidelines - the reality is that most folks are awesome. Referees are contractors who choose which games they want to officiate. Money isn’t the only factor in their decision: they also rely on sportsmanship rankings by other referees. There’s a scale from 1-5, with one being egregious and 5 being excellent. The following teams were ranked excellent by referees at least 5 times this season.
We don’t have participation medals for all this season, but we do want to celebrate these rockstar teams! If your team is listed below, look for a follow up email next week with medal pick up times after the holiday weekend. And THANK YOU for being excellent!!

Save the Date!
Annual General Meeting
Save the date! We have set our date for this year's 2023 AGM. The AGM is the Annual General Meeting where SFYS team representatives come together to get any updates or announcements, a recap of the past year and the scoop on the coming year, and an introduction to and vote for the SFYS Volunteer Board positions.
The meeting will be both in person and virtual on 2/16/23. As we get close to the date, specifics on time and location will be announced, but typically it begins between 6:30 and 7.
- Our Bylaws require a unique parent representative from each team. If you did not submit a Team Parent (Voting Rep) at the time of the Spring 2023 intent, you must before January 15th. Each voting rep must be unique (one per team) and any parent may represent their team. (If a Team Rep can't make it, they are able to authorize a proxy to attend on their behalf, so no worries there.) You can declare your voting rep by emailing your rep’s full name, address, phone number, and email to email@example.com
