Parents Code:

  • No SMOKING on or any where near the playing field
  • Please notify your coach if your child cannot make a game or practice. ·
  • Please have the players to their games 15 minutes prior to kickoff, as coaches need to plan their line-up and shift changes
  • Please do not coach from the sidelines.  You are a spectator!
  • Always show up at the field as games will be played in the rain. The coach does not have the authority to call off a game, but will email/call you if possible to inform you of any cancellations. Cancellation will also be posted on the Club’s web site, as soon as possible. Games cancelled on account of the weather may be rescheduled, when possible.
