Game Day Guidelines:
Arrive prepared: Uniform, Water, Cleats/Tennis Shoes, Shin Guards, Ball.
• Practice Sessions/Games are every Saturday morning at 11:00 a.m. for approximately 1 hour.
• "Games" at this level of play are not to be viewed as competitive but more as opportunities to play in a group setting. Most children at this age do not play with other children; they play independently at the same time. Please don't be upset with your child if he/she does not want to participate on a particular Saturday and only wants to watch. This is very normal and expected.
• Most importantly, parents, coaches, non-participating players, and spectators should attend the
practice/game with the goal of enjoying and encouraging their child and other participants.
