Game Day information 

Familiarize yourself, parents, and players with the Laws of the Game for the division you are coaching. 

Before the Game

Schedules - posted on the Fall Schedule tab. Check weekly to confirm the time and field for each game. Any rainout information will be sent to coaches the morning of the game.
Coaches - check in at the game tent at least 15 minutes prior to game time. At the check in tent, coaches need to have their game card completed. Game cards must include the numbers and names of each player. If a player will not be playing, coaches will need to cross out their name on the card. Coaches need to bring their printed release forms with them to every game.
Fields -  Field striping takes place on Fridays at 5 PM. The week number determines which team is required to send a volunteer to help stripe the fields (i.e. Week 1 - Team #1 for each division will send their parent volunteers). If you are the first game of the day on your divisions field (U10/U12), please hang the nets at least 25 minutes before the game is set to begin. 
Players -arrive in uniform, with shin guards under socks, NO JEWELRY, and shoes. Try to attend every game throughout the season. If you know you will not be able to attend a game or practice, it is the player's responsibility to communicate this to the coach.
PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE SIDELINES. We love pets, but the sidelines at a soccer game are just not safe for them. Please leave them at home. 

During the game 

Coaches will need to hand their completed gamecard to the referee. Coaches, you fulfill the largest role of all. Players and parents model their coach's behavior, so bring your positive "A" game (attitude). Keep a calm demeaner if a call is made you do not agree with during play. The referees are volunteers and everyone is a part of the AYSO family. 
Parents are on the sidelines to cheer and not to coach. Your child has been practicing and would like to show you their skills.  
Substitutions - in AYSO substitutions are done half way through each half ("quarter subs") and at half time. Coaches should make sure quarter subs are fast! This is not a time for water breaks or giving coaching instructions -- coaching should be done before games, after games, and at half time. When the referee calls for substitutions, players who are subbing out should leave the field and sit with their coach as fast as they can while players subbing in move onto the field so play can be restarted as quickly as possible. Players need to check in with the sideline referee.
Referees - will record substitutions and goals throughout the game. The center referee has the FINAL say and controls the game.    

Each team should gather immediately after the game to cheer for the opposing team. 
Parents should form a celebration tunnel to celebrate their players 

After the game
Teams will clean up their sidelines and move to an area near the field allowing the next team to set-up 
The coach is welcome to have a short team meeting to discuss what went well 
If this is the last game of the day, please remove nets and place them behind the goal posts for pick-up
Referees will deliver the game cards to the referee tent for divisions U10, U12, and U14



For many families, game days are the best time of the week. No matter if it’s warm or chilly, your players are still working hard and it’s important to take the necessary measures to make sure your player doesn’t suffer from dehydration. Keep the following three tips in mind to combat this issue:

  1. Have your young athlete to drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after practices and games.
  2. Teach your child the symptoms of dehydration – dry or sticky mouth, thirst, headache, dizziness, cramps and excessive fatigue – and have him or her communicate anytime he or she is feeling those symptoms. Be sure to share this information with other parents and coaches. For a list of all symptoms, click here.
  3. If you’re a volunteer coach, consider adjusting the intensity of practices depending on the temperature and humidity, and ask referees, before hot games, if they can allow for extra water breaks.

For more information on dehydration, including symptoms, causes, and risk factors, visit the Mayo Clinic. Have a safe season!
