Field Set-Up and Field Take-Down

If you are the first game of the day you have "field set up". If you are the last game of the day you have "field take down". If you are the only game of the day you have "field set up AND field take down". If you have "field set up" it is your responsibility to ensure the field has been lined in both directions, (to ensure the lines show between mowings), put up two flags for each goal and a small cone on each corner of the field, (all of these materials are found inside the coaches shed at Howerton Soccer Complex). If you have "field take down" then remove the flags and cones from each goal end and return them to the coaches shed at Howerton Soccer Complex. The U7 through U10 teams have game fields at Howerton Soccer Complex were the goals and nets remain up all season long. For safety reasons please ensure that no one climbs on the goal or entangles themself in the net.

 
Sportsmanship

Coaches are responsible for maintaining their sidelines. Please read our Sideline Behavior Policy to know what you are responsible for. At the bottom of each match report additional information is required for the Ranking System being used for the Tom Higby Sportsmanship Award. The rankings are - 1 = Poor, 2 = Below Average, 3 = Average, 4 = Outstanding. If you are not sure what each ranking's meaning is then please visit the District IV website and go to Coach: FAQ entitled The Tom Higby Sportsmanship Award for specific definitions.
