GAME DAY INFORMATION
Local teams have the option of checking in Friday night 5:30pm-7:30pm at Sports Village.
Standard check-in is one-hour prior to game time. Players do not need to be present at check-in. Just a team representative with player cards and medical release forms.
All teams MUST check-in. Do not proceed to your field until you have checked in.
Every manager will be required to sign a document stating that all paperwork is in order, all players are of the correct age to play in the event, that teams will follow the rules of the tournament, that parents will behave on the sideline (a parent send-off could result in the team being forfeited out of the event so please make sure your parents understand they are to sit down and watch and not be confrontational or risk the team being forfeited out of the event due to their behavior). We will not condone nor allow bad behavior from teams, coaches or parents and we WILL forfeit teams out of the event for unacceptable and inappropriate behavior.
FIELD CHECK-IN PROCESS PRIOR TO EACH GAME:
Referees will perform safety checks on players only.
Managers should hold on to all player cards UNLESS there is a red-card sendoff in which case the referee will need to collect the player card, for that player, from the manager. Referees will not hold on to player cards during the game. Too many cards get lost or unclaimed and we don't want managers to have to worry about this. Once the team is officially checked-in 1-hour before the first game, no further check-in will be required. However, MAKE SURE you have the player cards and medical release forms with you at every game.
There is no need to sign Game Reports after the game.
Teams sit on one side of the field. Spectators sit on the opposite side of the field MIRRORING YOUR TEAM. Please do not sit mixed in with the other team. Please do not change ends after half-time because your child is the GK or a forward. Stay on your half of the field mirroring your team.
No spectators are allowed on the team side of the field. Only appropriately carded staff are allowed on the team side of the field.
Any parent videotaping a game must do so from the PARENT side of the field.
Game lengths for age groups as follows:
U10 - 25 minute halves
U11-U15 - 30 minute halves
U16-U19 - 35 minute halves
