2006's -5v5 at Woodfarm-urgent registration news
2006's -5v5 at Woodfarm
----------------------------------
In order to keep tabs on how many teams are being proposed for 5v5, I would ask that all clubs re-register with ERSDA at this age group by completing the form, one for each team, that was e-mailed by me on June 19th to all 2006 coaches. As mentioned in that e-mail, we have a limit of 24 teams at this venue and we have new clubs asking to join so I need to know how many teams we are going to have come August playing 5v5.
Therefore, please reply by 10th August at the latest. After that date, if we are short of 24 teams, I will open up the registration to the new clubs.Please contact me if you did not receive the 5v5 ERSDA registration form and I will e-mail it to you or if you have any other queries on this matter.
 
Regards,
Bob MacDonald
ERSDA Secretary

Interested in starting a 2008 age group team?
Please note that there will be an ERSDA/SYFA registration meeting for the 2008 age group who will start in August at Pro-Soccer.
 
The date and time of the meeting will be advised shortly but will be in June prior to the end of the East Renfrewshire school term on 25th June.
 
Clubs wishing to enter teams at this new age group will be asked to attend the meeting with the appropriate ERSDA/SYFA documentation for signing (the ERSDA registration document can be found on the website under 'documents' or by e-mailing ersdasecretary@hotmail.co.uk).
 
Registration for this age group will continue to be available to clubs up until 31st August although note that, as per last year, SYFA may well charge a fee for player registration after that date.

The SFA Pathway
Thursday 23 February 2012 - 11:15:34 in General

The SFA Pathway
The SFA Pathway has been with us for over a year. Having met with Hampden representatives Ersda have now been asked to fall into line with the National strategy and apply the small sided rules and ethos to ensure uniformity throughout Scotland.
To check out these rules to your specific age group please check the SFA website www.scottishfa.co.uk or the SYFA site www.scottishyouthfa.co.uk.

We hope to upload a copy of the Pathway rules to the website later this week. We also aim to email all of our coaches now on the data base with their age specific rules so you don’t have to trawl through the 20 page document.

There are very few changes. We are currently looking into the game time issue and may tweak this as we have to take into consideration our facilities, number of teams and allocated time slots.

The only major change is the Retreating line. Only one age group apply this rule now (2003s). All other 7s age groups (2002s 2001s 2000s) play as normal but the Goalkeeper should not kick the ball out from hand. We would still encourage the goalkeepers to pass the ball or throw it.

The 2004 age group start the season playing 4s but will move to 5 aside (4 outfield and 1 goalkeeper) come August.

Advice for all clubs
Friday 10 February 2012 - 01:05:54 in General

Advice for all clubs

The SYFA have advised ERSDA that they cannot process any PVG applications for their members/volunteers that already have Enhanced Disclosure or have been SYFA members/volunteers for more than one year. If your club has new members/volunteers who have joined within the last calendar year then you will need to contact the SYFA directly to organise your PVG applications. It is the responsibility of all SYFA members/volunteers to ensure that they have the correct disclosure in order to operate as a club or organisation. This can only be achieved through the clubs Child Protection Officer and the SYFA.

Note: If your club has any members that are already in the PVG system then that member can apply to playitsafe©scottish-football.com to become an official signatory for your club, this will then allow them to process PVG applications for new members only.

ERSDA as an organisation are waiting for Disclosure Scotland to allow the SYFA to process all applications, this will then enable ERSDA to help all clubs through the PVG process.

Parking in Dubbs Road,Barrhead
The following email was recieved today from East Renfrewshire Council,

Eamonn,

I’m not sure if you’re familiar with the above private road,however it runs runs adjacent to the Cowan park in Barrhead.  Unfortunately we’ve received a complaint from the land owner regarding people parking in this vicinity in particular on Saturday mornings when ERSDA 7’s is taking place.
As such please can you put on the ersda website that people are not allowed to park on this road as well as highlighting this issue to all coaches who use this facility and ask them to relay this information to all parents of players.

Dubbs Road is highlighted in yellow below.
