Why we learn about Physics for soccer

Magnus effect, generation of a sidewise force on a spinning cylindrical or spherical solid immersed in afluid (liquid or gas) when there is relative motion between the spinning body and the fluid. Named after the German physicist and chemist H.G. Magnus, who first (1853) experimentally investigated the effect, it is responsible for the “curve” of a served tennis ball or a driven golf ball and affects the trajectory of a spinning artillery shell.

MTSA Premier joined the EDP league for U17 soccer

The Commitment Required for EDP Participation

By participating in the EDP a team undertakes that its EDP schedule will take priority over any other ongoing competition. This means:

1 Teams agree to play an EDP game every weekend. These games will be scheduled at the start of the season. The home team will make best efforts to accommodate the wishes of the away team about starting time, etc. but ultimately the home team will set the time and venue (on the weekend set by the league) and the away team must turn up and play.

2 If, on occasion, a team cannot do this for a valid reason: e.g., attending a marquee tournament such as the Dallas Cup, (but not commitments to other league or cup competitions) then that game must be made up as soon as possible, preferably before the originally scheduled date.

3 If a team plays in another competition a game may clash unavoidably with a previously scheduled EDP game. In such cases this team must provide notice well in an advance that this conflict may arise, and offer to play their EDP opponent on the other day that weekend. Any exception to this requirement must be approved by the EDP office.

4 Injuries, player or coach conflicts, or the inability to field 11 players are not valid reasons to cancel a game. (EDP rules allow use of other players carded with the same club, and clubs at this level are expected to have backup coaches available.)

5 EDP clubs/teams are expected to support other EDP programming e.g., tournaments, the TIP program and EDP College ID Camps.

Note: All EDP NPL division games will be played with US Club cards and rosters.
