Slide tackling IS permitted at all ages for the outdoor season (not permitted during indoor season). Incorrect information appears in the printed edition of the 2013 WYSA Spring Newsletter.
The laws of the game state:
A direct free kick is awarded to the opposing team if a player commits any of the following seven offences in a manner considered by the referee to be careless, reckless or using excessive force:
- kicks or attempts to kick an opponent
- trips or attempts to trip an opponent
- jumps at an opponent
- charges an opponent
- strikes or attempts to strike an opponent
- pushes an opponent
- tackles an opponent
A player is guilty of serious foul play if he uses excessive force or brutality against an opponent when challenging for the ball when it is in play.
A tackle that endangers the safety of an opponent must be sanctioned as serious foul play.
Any player who lunges at an opponent in challenging for the ball from the front, from the side or from behind using one or both legs, with excessive force and endangering the safety of an opponent is guilty of serious foul play.
Advantage should not be applied in situations involving serious foul play unless there is a clear subsequent opportunity to score a goal. The referee must send off the player guilty of serious foul play when the ball is next out of play.
A player who is guilty of serious foul play should be sent off and play is restarted with a direct free kick from the position where the offence occurred or a penalty kick (if the offence occurred inside the offender's penalty area).

Despite the challenges we are facing with the weather, the 2013 WYSA Outdoor Season will kick-off on April 26 at the Waverley Soccer Complex (WSC). Only RECREATIONAL matches will take place throughout the weekend and following 2 weeks at the WSC, as we have to start their season due to their limited playing dates of only May / June. The schedule of matches for the first weekend and following 2 weeks will be posted on the WYSA Homepage (here). Recreational teams will continue to play matches at the WSC until the natural grass fields become playable, which we now expect to be around mid-May. We will try to accommodate the schedule requests that we have received, however, due to the weather delays we may not be able to accommodate every request.
The U13 - U18 Premier & Premier-Developmental League will kick-off at the WSC on May 10, 2013.
The U9 - U12 Developmental League will kick-off on May 13, 2013.
Online schedule (ITSN) - As we have had to re-do each schedule, we don't expect to have them uploaded until the first week of May, so until then, all games will be posted on the WYSA Homepage (here).
