How are schedules put together? • Coaches of multiple teams get preferential treatment • We try to minimize travel between games for these volunteers • Only seems right that coach who serves on multiple teams gets “home field” advantage • Consider – For those volunteers who have a head coaching role with two or more teams, we do our best to minimize travel between sites – We can’t guarantee that you will have your games back to back in the same site, but we try •

If we missed a spot on the schedule, or, if you have two games at the same time, please contact Eric Johnson www.aysoHinsdale.org


Field Locations • All field locations are on our website (www.aysohinsdale.org) • No hard copies will be distributed • Please check the maps – some locations have changed • Problem at any field – contact us





Safety • #1 rule: Please do not let the kids climb on the goals • Please secure all goals! – Stakes or anchors are provided for ALL goals – If tethered, leave them tethered

• Please notify us of any unsafe field conditions • Inspect the fields before practices and games – Resources on our website • Field Inspection & Hazards Checklist • Quick Reference Guide



Movable Soccer Goal Safety Act • • • • •

Requires movable goals to be anchored Injury & Death avoidable Zack’s Law signed by Illinois Governor Quinn August 2011 Zack Tran died in 2003 as result of unsecured goal at age 6 anchoredforsafety.org lists 36 deaths and 56 injuries related to moveable soccer goals in the U.S. between 1979 and 2011 – Zack Tran’s death was one of four incidents in Illinois, including a 1998 accident that left a 9-year-old Deerfield boy with serious facial injuries



Can I play if goal is unsecured? Your two choices • Cancel game & reschedule • Play with cones marking goal area • Safety of our players come first
