Coach Information

Getting Started

NWCCSAY/Milford Soccer Website
Our website contains a lot of valuable information. The Coach Info link has rules, games, sample practice schedules, etc. Our Policies link has Code of Conduct rules, Park rules and more. Practice and game schedules are available online.
All Head and Assistant Coaches
All adults having contact with the kids must complete a coach application. If a parent from the team volunteers to help, let us know your assistant(s) & ask them to submit an online app.
Player Information
Please contact your players as soon as possible. If you email, ask for a response to make sure they received it (spam) and if they don’t respond, please call. Players may not be switched from the assigned team. Make sure parents know your name and where to find you for the first practice.

Important Notes for Coaches

Times Two Policy
At least 2 adults must be present (near the team) at all team functions, including games, practices, picnics or end of season parties. SAY National does not encourage car-pooling due to the “Times Two” policy.
Lightning rule
We have a lightning prediction system. If the detector sounds or if you see a flash or hear thunder, you must leave the field and get in your car. Wait until the all clear is sounded or 30 minutes after last occurrence before going back to fields. Coaches (with their teams) who do not leave the fields in this situation will be reviewed by the Code of Conduct Committee and may face suspension for the season. Safety of the children must come first. This applies to games and practices.
Rescheduling Games (on the website, Coach Info) Must be approved. Ten day notice required. Only one (1) reschedule per team. If you cancel a game and do not notify us, your team is responsible for paying the fees for the referee who was scheduled to ref that game.

Pre-Season Items

Field Day
GMAA will be putting in fields this season.

Season Info

Field conditions

WEBSITE - Cancellation Alerts (make sure you click the refresh button) Finley Ray Park is rarely closed due to weather. The website (Cancellation Alerts) and SAY Line will be updated if the decision is made to close the park. (Weekdays by 4:00-4:30 p.m.; Weekends by 7:00-7:30 a.m.) As a coach, you may choose to cancel practice even if the park is open.
TWITTER- We will tweet in the event the fields are closed.  


Practice Fields/Weeknight Games

Teams get 1/2 field for practice. The park is not open until 5:00. Check the ref schedule on the website (Referee Info) each week for weeknight games. Due to the high number of teams/limited field space, weeknight games will rarely be scheduled, but if so, games take priority over practices. Move to another available field or find some open green space. Please use the entire field during practices – not just the goal area and middle of the field. Do not allow players dig ruts or kill the grass in the field.


Uniforms

All players will receive a uniform jersey and socks.  If the player was registered late, uniform size requests are not guaranteed. If you have extra shirts/socks, please return them to the concession stand with your team number indicated.


Referees

We have a lot of experienced refs and many new, young refs. Let them do their job - write comments (positive and negative) on the game card. Please let us know if you are interested in helping us give new referees some experience by letting them ref some scrimmages. Refs will be scheduled for upper level games first. Candy division may not always have referees. Teams are responsible for paying refs and coaches should collect money from the team. See the ref payment handout for how much to collect and who pays referees. If you have problems with collection, please let us know.

Concessions
