Spring 2024 Season Update
Spring 2024 Season Update (as of 16 May, 2024)
Soccer BallThis weekend is our last weekend of the Spring season, with the possibility of inclement weather. Make sure to follow our FB page for updates on Sunday morning.

Coaches, if you have received any equipment such as pinnies, please return them to the Board/equipment area by the fields.

Any items left at the field are tossed into a Lost & Found box, which is kept available by the Board/equipment area by the fields. Make sure to check the box if you’ve left soccer balls, jackets, or water bottles at the fields. Left items will be thrown away or donated.

For divisions with referees, the referees will bring the game balls to the field. There is no equipment to pick up. If you need a pinnie for a goalie, stop by the equipment area at the fields where the red shirt wearing Board members are. Referees will perform equipment and uniform checks, so make sure all players are wearing their matching uniform socks overtop of shinguards (mandatory). Uniform shirts should be worn overtop of any sweatshirts, but referees have discretion as long as they can distinguish the team color.

For divisions without referees (Clinic and PreK/K), the first coach at a field (8am) should pick up the equipment from the equipment area at the fields where the red shirt wearing Board members are. Then the bag is left at the field until the last session at the field ends (1pm for PreK/K teams on Fields 11a and 11b, 1pm for Clinic teams on Fields 12 and 13, and 11am for Clinic teams on Field 8), and the final teams at the fields need to return the bag to the equipment area.
