Shrewsbury Youth Soccer Playing Time It is our policy that as a member of a team, each player during a game be given equal playing time when possible. A child must play at least one half of each regulation game during the Fall. For Spring select teams in an MTOC division in the U12 and older age groups, a child must play at least one third of each game (this includes league and MTOC tournament games). For all other teams & age groups in the Spring the child must play at least one half of each game.
Shrewsbury Youth Soccer Participation Players are expected to participate in practices and games. Parents are expected to participate by insuring that their children are on time for, and picked up following practices and games, and that they have their equipment with them. If a player cannot be present for a scheduled game or practice, the coach should be notified in advance. Parents should support the coach, help maintain discipline, and promote good sportsmanship. If problems should arise that cannot be mutually resolved, they shall be brought to the Vice President for resolution with the coach. The Vice President then will inform the Board at the next meeting. If the Vice President deems it necessary, he can convene the Board to resolve the situation.
