Bay-Lakes Questions

Q. What is the Bay-Lakes League?
A. Bay-Lakes is the regional governing body for the Brown County area. They pool the teams from around the area, create game schedules and manage the season for the players ages 12 and up.

Q. Why don’t we manage our own teams games in these age groups?
A. The need for larger team sizes, and teenagers having more commitments in life as they get older, make it hard to put together enough teams at an individual age group to give them any variety of opponent. It is not uncommon for us to only have one or two teams in an age group.

Q. What ages are grouped together at this level?
A. For Boys and Girls the age groupings are 12-14 and 15-18. 

Q. When does the season start?
A. The season is normally one to two weeks later than our local games. High School players cannot start until their school soccer season has completed, so the games start as those seasons end.

Q. When will my child’s team practice?
A. Practices will start sometime after May 1st. The actual practice times are at the discretion of the coach based upon the coach’s availability and the team’s ability to attend.

Q. Where will practices be held?
A. Practicing at PYSC fields before school is out can be difficult because of school functions. Your coach has been given a list of location ideas and actual locations are left to their discretion.

Q. When nights are the games played?
A. Games are scheduled Monday through Thursday. They are unable to commit to certain nights as we do locally.

Q. Where are the games played?
A. Approximately half of our games are considered home games and will be played at our fields in Pulaski. The away games will be played at the home field of the opponents we are assigned.

Q. What times do the games start?
A. Games will start at either 5:30pm or 7:00pm.

Q. What teams will we play against?
A. The current organizations in our area are; Allouez, Ashwaubenon, DePere, Green Bay Kickers (west), Green Bay Strikers (east) and Pulaski. We will play against their teams that are assigned to our division. We may also play against other PYSC teams that may be assigned to our division.

Q. How will we get our game schedule?
A. Your coach will make sure you have a game schedule. It will also be posted to the PYSC website just as our other teams are. The most current information will always be available on the Bay-Lakes website.

Q. Will we keep score?
A. All Bay-Lakes games will be scored and league standings will be kept.

Q. How can we check on our teams standings?
A. All game scores and division standings are posted to the Bay-Lakes website on a regular basis.

Q. Is there any reward for being in first place at the end of the season?
A. There is no reward for being in first place directly. But the top tier of teams will play in the Tony Litt Tournament.

Q. What is the Tony Litt Tournament?
A. The Tony Litt Tournament is played over a weekend at the end of July and the participants are taken from the upper tier of the standings at the end of the season.

Q. Being there will be more emphasis on winning, will the best players get all the playing time?
A. No, the region adheres to the same playing time rules PYSC does. Fifty percent playing time is mandated.

Q. How will we be notified if games are cancelled?
A. Bay-Lakes has their own “Rained Out” notification system just as PYSC has. Be sure to go to the Bay-Lakes website and sign up so you don’t miss any notifications.

Q. My child’s game was cancelled, will it be made up?
A. Being that games played help decide standings for the season, the goal is to make up all missed games if possible. Your coach will notify you.
