Field Set-up & Take-down

LCYSA would like to thank you for your volunteer services as youth soccer coaches.  

The teams who have the first and last games of the day are responsible for setting up and taking down the fields to assist in fulfilling some of the obligatory volunteering that makes this association run.  This is a relatively minor endeavor when done by a team but not so when done by an individual.  We anticipate that teams can both set up and take down a field in 10 to 15 minutes though probably less.

The following is a description of the set up and take down of each of the age groups by field used.  There will be a diagram of the fields posted at the concession stand.  You may also click on the age groups below to see the field diagrams.

SET-UP

U6 (kindergarten) - SW corner Field 1:  These teams will play on the two small fields that are in front of the concession stand.  They use the foldable PUG goals that are found in the shed just left of the garage door.  Each bag should contain two goals folded up.  Each goal should be place equal distance on the goal lines and secured with the stakes attached to the goal. Flags can be placed on all four corners of each field if teams want.  Flags are found to the right of the garage door in the shed.

U7 (first graders) - SE corner Field 1:  These teams play on the grass east of the kindergarten fields (towards the woods).  They will use the small 4 foot metal goals which should be placed in the middle of each arch on the goal lines.  Flags should be used at this level and can be found to the right of the garage door of the shed.

U8 (2nd graders) - North end Field 1:  These teams play on the two fields on the north end of Field 1.    They will use the small 4 foot metal goals which should be placed in the middle of each arch on the goal lines.  Flags should be used at this level and can be found to the right of the garage door of the shed.

U9/10 (3rd - 4th graders) - Field 4 (North Field):  These teams will use the two fields that are located on the north field (newest field) north of the lower field. This level will use the medium metal goals (7x21) that DO NOT have wheels on them.  The larger wheeled goals should be moved off of the field of play towards the fence closest to the road.  The goals should be spaced equal distance between the goalie arcs on each goal line.  Flags should be placed on all four corners.  Flags can be found in the shed to the right of the garage door.

U11/12 (5th - 6th graders) - south end of Field 3 (west field):  These teams will use the south end of the field west of the highway - in a west-east direction. Flags should be placed on all four corners of each field.  Flags can be found in the shed at the concessions to the right of the garage door.

U13/14 (seventh and eighth graders) - West Field:  These teams will use the north end of the field west of the highway - in a west-east direction. Flags should be placed on all four corners of each field.  Flags can be found in the shed at the concessions to the right of the garage door.

TAKE-DOWN

For all fields:  Remove all flags and place back into the respective spots in the sheds.  U6 foldable goals will need to be folded up and put back into the concessions shed.  All garbage should be removed from the fields and placed into cans conveniently located along the fields.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
