Week 4 Games (Sept 29) Checklist

LAST CHANCE Yankee Candle Fundraiser DUE! If you missed the fundraiser drop off, you have two “last chances” to turn them in:

·       Monday, Charles Town Fields 5-530pm

·       Wednesday, Morgan’s Grove Pavilion, 6-630pm

·       Yankee Candle delivery is October 20th (week 7) at Morgan Grove Pavilion.

·       Brown’s Tire still has FREE SOCCER BALLS available and is only 1 mile from Morgan’s Grove Park (out on Route 45).

·       JCYSL and DC United’s Youth Soccer Night is October 20th  vs. Columbus Crew – for more information contact (former AYSO player) Mikael Tigrett at (202) 587-5469.  One team has already been selected to “Play on the Pitch” and several families are already going and we’d like to have a volunteer step forward to coordinate a bus (or two) to make it easier for the entire group to go (and not have to worry about gas, tolls, parking fees, yet another commute, etc).  Please contact if you’re interested in coordinating transportation.

·       While there is sufficient parking at Morgan’s Grove between the lower lot by the train tracks and the upper grassy area by the big U16 field, we ask for SAFETY FIRST: all drivers should SLOW DOWN (even while APPROACHING the fields) and to park in an ORDERLY manner. The lower lot allows for nearest to the fence/field parking and a double row of cars in the middle – please – no triple parking.

·       For teams that practice in Shepherdstown: please do not park near the pavilion on these week days: September 26 and October 3rd.  Parks and Recreation, is hosting events during these days and will be posting No Parking and Rental signs, so please park in the lower lot.

·       Over 300 have “Liked” our Facebook page for updates, so far….have you?

o      Safety Notes:

·       Bring water to practices and games!

·       Lightning/Thunder Policy: If you see lightning or hear thunder, please evacuate the fields and proceed to your car (do not stand at/near metal fencing). Only resume play 30 minutes after the most recent lightning or thunder.

·       Games are only officially cancelled by board members due to the actual field conditions. Stay up to date by signing up for alerts at: JCYSL Alert Subscription.

·       No hanging from any goals OR nets. Several of our goals needed repairs which is an extra cost for our non-profit league.

·       No earrings – no exceptions.

·       Please remove any trash you or your team brings in.

·       No pets on the fields, even if they are cute.

·       No smoking in sight of the playing field.
