Communication is the key to success in our organization. Please find below some of the frequently asked questions we get from our players, parents and coaches. Please contact us with any further questions.
What division will my child play in?
Players are placed in divisions based on birth year. Please check our Age Matrix.
How do I contact the league?
You can email us on our Contact page, message us on Facebook, or contact a board member directly.
When are signups?
Signups for our 8 game Spring season (March-May) are typically in January
Signups for our 12 game Fall season (August-November) are typically in June/July.
We added online registration options at cysa-rsl.sportsaffinity.com
When are games & practices?
Practices and games are held at Ramona Soccer Fields on a division specific field. Practice times are at the discretion of our Volunteer coaches but can be typically held Monday - Thursday anytime from 4pm-8pm.
Divisions 6, 7, & 8 have one practice weekly in Fall & Spring seasons. Divisions 3, 4, & 5 have one weekly practice in Spring season and two weekly practices in Fall season. Fall season games are held on Saturdays starting 9am through the early afternoon. Spring season games are held on Sundays starting after 12pm.
Can I request players or coaches?
Unfortunately due to the size of our league we can not accommodate requests with the exception of siblings or custody arrangements. Each coach is allowed to secure 2 players max per team. Please consider volunteering if you have a specific need.
How are teams selected?
In the Spring season all teams are chosen by Division reps based on years experience, gender (all teams Co-ed), school, and birth year, if applicable. In the Fall season all teams in Division 6 (Boys & Girls only teams), 7, & 8 are chosen by Division reps based on the criteria above. Divisions 1, 3, 4, & 5 are done by a draft immediately following a skill assessment.

How do I file a grievance?
In the event a parent, guardian, player, coach or any other concerned individual has a complaint to register against a coach, assistant coach, team parent, board member or other RSL official, the complainant will first bring his/her complaint to the attention of his/her child's coach, who in turn should do his/her best to resolve the problem or grievance.
If he/she is unable or unwilling to resolve the situation, then the complainant shall notify the division representative in writing. Complainant should not contact the RSL board directly before the above options are exhausted. Only written (email is acceptable) complaints will be acted upon by the RSL board.
How do I protest a game?
Coaches only are eligible to file a game protest when they feel that circumstances warrant a change in the final outcome of a game.
Written (email is acceptable) protests must be received by a board member within 24 hours of the game. There is a $25 fee to file a game protest.
The protesting coach must provide evidence that a violation of RSL rules took place and that if the rules violation hadn't taken place the final outcome of the game would have been different. Therefore, there is a high standard to be met for a successful game protest. If the protest is successful, the fee will be refunded.
Whether or not a protest is successful, the RSL board will provide a written response to the protesting coach with the protest result.
Can a player play up or down a division?
Due to insurance reasons players are not allowed to play down to a younger division. A player can request to play up but is not a guarantee, all players requesting to play up must submit a request to the board of directors with a reason why they feel their player should be played up. All decisions will be decided by the board of directors.
