Eastfield United Soccer Club: Team Rules

Tuesday, November 24
Eastfield United Arsenal Team Rules



  1. Be on time for practices and games.  5-10 minutes before practice and 20-30 minutes before games.
  2. Be ready to play when practice or games begin.  You should not be putting your gear on once practice has started.
  4. Playing time and positions are not guaranteed.  There may be times that players do not play much in a game or may play in positions they do not like.  Whatever the coaches feel is best for the team is what will be done.
  5. Be courteous and respectful to your teammates and coaches.
  6. Be respectful to the other team and to officials.
  7. No horseplay or goofing off during practice.
  8. Uniforms should be worn only for games.  Your extra shirt should also be brought to each game.
  9. Player dues ($20 per month, August to May) must be paid in a timely manner. (by the 16th of each month)  If dues are not paid, the player can / will be suspended until they are caught up.  If dues are not paid for more than 3 months the player’s spot can / will be lost on the team.
  10. Each player / parent is required to participate in team fundraisers.  This is how we pay our bills.  If you do not wish to participate you can write a check for the amount it costs as determined by the coach for the player to play. 
  11. Every game and practice will end with a 5 – 10 minute review that all players must attend.  Parents are also encouraged to attend since important information is normally given out at this time.
  12. Your commitment to the team is very important.  I understand that some may play rec. soccer, baseball, etc., but it is important that the team comes first.  This is a different level of play than that of rec. ball and the commitment is necessary.  Remember that you are not only making a commitment to the club, most of all you are all making a commitment to your teammates.
  13. Be sure to bring all required gear to practice.  Spikes, shin guards, ball, etc.  If you do not have it, you will not practice.
  14. All players must carry their own bags and balls.  This is not Mom & Dads job.  They are your responsibility!
  15. Your ball is your responsibility.  Treat it as a part of your family. Own the ball and you will own the game.
  16. Practice is not enough time for you to master the skills we go over.  In order to progress into a premier team level, you must do some work on your own.  You will only be as good as the effort and time you put into the game.
  17. Remember to focus all the time and most of all have fun!!!!!!!!!!
