*Tent/Awning Stakes are NOT allowed on SMITH FIELDS ONLY - this is strictly enforced. The other fields are OK for tents and awnings using stakes.

Coach Reminders

*Home team wears light jersey, Away team wears dark jersey

*Winning team brings score card to Field Marshal Tent

* Heading is not allowed in U11 games. Heading is allowed in U12 games without limitations. If younger players are playing in a U12 bracket, the coach is responsible for advising the younger players on his/her team not to head the ball in accordance with the recommendations from U.S. Soccer. The referee will abide by the rules of the U12 bracket, regardless of the actual age of the players, and allow heading the ball unless both coaches agree (prior to the start of the game) to play by the U11 rules to disallow headers. It is the responsibility of the coach, not the referee, to advise players younger than U12 not to head the ball if playing in a U12 bracket. 

*Both coaches need to sign game card at end of game to verify scores.  If unsigned, it is assumed that the coach agreed to the final score.

·       We have Field Marshals placed at every field.   Our Field Marshalls are soccer- knowledgeable, mature, capable college Students/Players.   

·       The FM is responsible for the safety of the players, team officials, parents, volunteers, and REFEREES.  

·       The FM is responsible for the safety and condition of the fields. 

·       The FM has been trained and is available to answer questions, handle disputes, manage referees and trouble shoot issues.  They do not,  however, deserve verbal abuse from parents, coaches or team officials, and it will not be tolerated.

·       The FM has ultimate decision-making authority at his/her fields.

·       The FM has the authority to remove individuals from the premises and ultimately from the tournament for unsafe or disrespectful behavior or for non-conformance to the Field Rules. 

·       Please be respectful to your Field marshals and they will be respectful to you.   


·       We have many great referees this year and it is going to be a great tournament!  

·       Please remember that Referees are human and will make mistakes.   

·       Please watch what is said and how we speak to the referees, especially the young referees.  These young people have studied hard to  become referees and they gain experience with every game and every season, just as our young players gain experience playing the game of  soccer.  Verbal abuse will not be tolerated.  

·       Grievances should be taken the Field Marshal by the coach or team official.  FM and tournament officials will not overturn a referee decision;  however, the grievance will be taken seriously.  We can observe the referee and take appropriate steps as determined by a tournament official,  FM or Director of Referees.
