Parents and players,
Please read following information regarding SYL league play.
Seating. In lacrosse, spectators sit on the opposite side of the field from the team benches. Do not sit behind the team benches or in the end line areas behind the goals. Sit across from your team's bench, at least five yards back from the sideline.
Field Set Up. Your coach will be asking for volunteers to help with field set up. On the schedule there are designated home and away teams. The home team is listed first. The first HOME team of the day for each field is responsible for setting up the fields with a table, 2 chairs, scoreboard, cones, end line balls, timing instruction sheet, air horn, and timer. There is a big red container of white balls for the boys and another red container of yellow balls for the girls. The last game of the day, the designated AWAY team is in charge of putting all of these items back in the shed.
Cones are placed on the corners of the field, the edges of the coaching box/scoring table area, and the intersection of the midfield line and sideline on the side opposite of the scoring table. Three balls are placed on each end line, and one at the scoring table.
Scoring Table Volunteers. Each team will need to supply one volunteer to work at the scoring table. This will involve keeping time for the game clock, timing penalties and keeping score.
Garbage. Garbage and recycling cans are located near each field. Please use them. Please help your coach pick up all water bottles and other garbage around the bench area after each game.
Sportsmanship. We hope that everyone (kids, parents, and coaches) will have a fun-filled season. Please promote good sportsmanship and act as good role models by remaining positive on the sidelines. It is inevitable that the referees will miss calls and/or make calls you don't agree with. However, please remember they are doing their best, they have trained, certified and tested.
