Update: the first yellow card has been issued for failure to remove jewellery. Team officials, you are responsible for ensuring your players comply with the rules.
It has been communicated to LIWSA executive that refs are constantly having to enforce the no-jewellery rule. Please ensure that coaches, managers and players are following the FIFA Laws of the Game #4 regarding jewellery. See attached memo for further details: LIWSA - Memo Re: Jewellery.
Div 3 Coaches and Managers, As you know, a number of Div 3 teams folded after the schedule was prepared and the season had already started. LIWSA has had to re-write the schedule several times.
There are several important factors we’ve had to keep in mind when creating the new schedule. Many clubs have booked and confirmed home field games/times, and to throw out the old schedule and completely re-write would cause a domino effect of issues. Therefore, we have kept the home teams/fields as per the original schedule and ensured every team at least one BYE.
After the Thanksgiving weekend:
Team List | all teams must use the LIWSA team roster form accessible under 'League' - 'Paper Forms' (form #128).
Player/Team Official ID Card | Team officials that DO NOT have a LIWSA ID card will not be permitted to in the technical area. Players that DO NOT have a player ID card will not be permitted to play.

This is a reminder to coaches, managers, people who use the technical area and board members that the September 30th deadline for submitting criminal reference checks is fast approaching. The LIWSA requires every coach, manager, person who uses the technical area and board member to successfully complete a criminal record check every 5 years, unless your team is exempt from the requirement. Over 30s teams are exempt.
