Announcing our new NVYSL Referee Evaluation Form

Our NVYSL Zero Tolerance policy prohibits direct criticism, dissent, or mistreatment of any Referee.  Both Coaches and Referees perform crucial and difficult jobs for NVYSL, and game day is simply not the appropriate time to convey negative feedback.

Instead, Coaches are encouraged to provide feedback about their Referees by completing a short survey at : tinyurl.com/y6cnu7tq

All submissions will be reviewed and routed to the appropriate local Referee Support Team, to ensure that Coach observations are incorporated into Referee development plans.

Please submit Referee feedback via this new form, and contact our NVYSL Referee Directors with any questions or comments about the process :
- Chris Batinsey (chris.batinsey@gmail.com)
- Ruben Seyde (ruben.seyde@leominsteryouthsoccer.org)

Managing Risk from EEE

Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) has been a major public health concern throughout Massachusetts this fall, but the worst of this crisis appears to be over.  Incidence of EEE has waned as colder weather approaches, and every town in NVYSL is now classified as Low Risk.  The only areas of the state remaining classified as Moderate Risk are Worcester, Boston, and Plymouth County.

NVYSL continues to monitor communications from health agencies, especially :
> CDC : www.cdc.gov/easternequineencephalitis/index.html
> Massachusetts Department of Public Health : www.mass.gov/guides/eee-in-massachusetts

Despite the reduced threat assessment, all members of our NVYSL Community (Players, Coaches, Referees, and Spectators) should continue to reduce risk of exposure and bites from infected mosquitoes by considering the following :
(1) REPELLENT : apply insect repellent to exposed skin and to clothing during any outdoor activity.
(2) LONG CLOTHING : one of the most effective deterrents to mosquito bites is basic skin coverage, so consider wearing lightweight hooded sweatshirts and pants whenever it becomes clear that mosquitoes are active.
(3) TIMINGthe hours around dusk and dawn bring the highest concentration of actively feeding mosquitoes, so teams can reduce their risk by concluding evening practices before 6PM.
