GAME DAY Field Setup / Breakdown

All Fields: General Setup

  • Arrive at least 15-20 minutes early (depends on age group and type of goals used)

  • Check field for general playing condition. Look for holes, puddles, unsafe conditions. Pick up trash or other impediments.

  • Check nets for holes or loose straps.

  • You should know the combo codes to the locks on your fields. If not, Email or call Fields Coordinator before Saturday. The same combo should open any entry gates (Grass Valley Charter) or divider gates (Scotten School) that may be locked.

Field Specific Setup (All coaches/teams playing the first games of the day are responsible for setup)

  • U6/U8 (Grass Valley Charter): Set up the goals and cones for your field. Grass Valley Charter has new all metal goals locked up to the shed on the east side of the parking lot. Cones or flags may be placed at the field corners, if desired. 2 game balls for each field are kept in the shed.

  • U6/U8 (Sierra College): Sierra College has pop-up "Bownet" goals. If you have trouble with the pop-up goals, ask one of the other coaches for assistance. Many of the coaches have set them up previously. Cones or flags may be placed at the field corners, if desired. 2 game balls for each field are kept in the shed.

  • U10 (Scotten): Goals should remain locked or pushed out of the way on the west (school) side of the field. Flip over wheels and roll the goals into place. Get corner flags from shed (next to shipping containers outside the fence on the west side of the field) and place flags at the corner spots. 3 games balls for each field are kept in the shed.

  • U12/U14 (Sierra College): Put the goals in place, if they are off to the side. Get corner flags from shed (next to parking lot) and place flags at the corner spots. 3 games balls for each field are kept in the shed.

Breakdown (All coaches/teams playing the last games of the day are responsible for breakdown. If no teams are waiting to play another game, assume you are the last game)

  • U6/U8 (Grass Valley Charter): All goals must be carefully stacked and locked up to the shed on the east side of the parking lot (These goals will disappear if not locked!). Return all cones/flags and balls to the shed.

  • U6/U8 (Sierra College): Carefully fold up Bownet goals and store them in their protective bags. Store bags in shed on the east side of the parking lot. Return all cones/flags and balls to the shed.

  • U10 (Scotten): Move all goals out of the way and secure with cable locks to the fence on the west side of the field. Return all cones/flags and balls to the shed. Lock divider fence between field and storage/shed area by daisy chaining lock onto other locks.

Pickup any trash and dispose in dumpster. Move misc belongings (water bottles/socks) off the field to a conspicuous location or place in shed (valuable items).

  • ALL FIELDS: If you are the last one returning equipment or leaving the field, double check the locks on sheds/gear boxes. Ensure that any entry or divider gates are daisy chained and do not lock out other locks
