12 Field Request Field Assignment Pending Requests If request not submitted by Aug 24 th, practice time will be assigned arbitrarily Requests will be honoured where possible but there will be conflicts and can not accommodate everyone

13 Equipment & Keys Equipment pick-up dates for next week will be e- mailed to coaches Equipment exchange day will happen on September 8 th ; details will be e-mailed Large number of players in U10-12 age groups created a shortage of equipment so may need temporary work-arounds

15 Pre-Game Information Home Game Schedule is produced and posted by Monday of each week This lists all the home games played each week Please note who is playing before and after you All referees are assigned according to this schedule

16 Pre-Game Information Unlike boys’ soccer, girls’ league play has to follow the Grass to Grass rule If our grass fields are closed, you must contact your opponent to see if they can provide a grass/turf field If they can, the game moves to your opponent’s field If they can’t, the game stays at home on your gravel field Vice versa Deadline in determining all this is Saturday 12:00pm Remember to notify Field & Referee Coordinators if there are any changes to your home game

17 Game Day – BGSC Equipment If you’re the first game of the day, your team (home team) is responsible for putting up both nets and lining the field. If you play the last BGSC game of the day please take down the equipment and lock away in storage container. If you take equipment away from the field please contact Zeljko or Tom If you are playing on a field that is not your usual home field, please ensure you have keys days prior to Game Day

18 Game Day - Playing Policy BGSC Playing Policy for Divisional Teams is:  U13-U18 – At least half the game  U6-U12 – Equal playing time Playing time can be restricted due to:  Player failing to attend practices during the week without notifying the coach in advance  Player arrives late to practices and games without notifying the coach in advance  Player behaves poorly during weekly practices Full policy is on the website
