Should I stay with my child at their soccer practice?

Should I stay with my child at their soccer practice?

As we start a new soccer season, we have an important reminder for everyone.

Players on our u4 - u8 teams are required to have an identified adult at the practice field for all practices.  This adult can be: the player's parent; grandparent, babysitter, responsible older sibling (with a way to reach the parent in case of emergency) or the parent of a known teammate who has agreed to be the responsible person for a child at practice.  Please remember and respect the fact that our volunteer coaches have volunteered their time to coach our players, not be their child care provider.  We are not a "drop-off" activity for this age group.

We strongly encourage adults to be present at all practices for u10 players (born in 2012/2013). 

Players u12 and up (born 2011 or earlier) can be dropped off and picked up at practice.

Thank you very much for your cooperation with these important practice guidelines.
