Game Week / Day

Game Week – Couple Days prior to Game Day - send message to families reminding of game info (warm up time, game time, location, set up report time, referee assignment, snack/ref refreshment assignments, etc.) 

Game Day - Check the Coaches Box (if any) for your team each week. Important handouts may be put there for you to distribute to your team. 

Game Day - Goal set up and tear down. Nope, you don’t have to do this single-handedly but if your team has the first game of the day, your team is responsible for getting the goals from the shed and setting them up (have volunteers report one hour prior to game time). If your team has the last game of the day, your team is responsible for tearing down the goals and returning them to the shed, as well as checking the field for trash. Please arrange for a few people from your team to accomplish these tasks. 

Game Day - Referee Crew. Ensure that the referee crew for your team assignment is timely present.
