Hi Parents,

Here is the 2024 Parent Welcome information for your review. Upon arriving at the field on your child's first evening please make your way to the tables set up on the track and you will be directed to the grid your child has been assigned to for the 2024 season where your coach / coaches will be waiting for you.

Equipment Needed:

Please note the following information as this will make both you and your child’s experience more enjoyable during our soccer season. Please have all players bring soccer cleats or good running footwear for a grass surface, shin guards, soccer socks, shorts, shirt with sleeves, and water for on field training and game sessions. I would also encourage you to have bug spray, sunscreen, and a hat for the younger players. Your child may bring their own ball if they wish, just please put their name on it. We do have additional soccer balls for use during training if your child does not have one.

Training/Game Cancellations:

Should it be necessary to cancel any training or games, we will communicate via email from our Ramp website. We take several factors into consideration when cancelling a session, such as what the field conditions are like, what is the future forecast, and the current temperature. Depending on the situation we may cancel a session for the younger groups but still train with an older group, so please note the group your child is in. For weekday training and Sunday evening adult games, cancellations will be issued between 4:30-5:00 pm. 

Bathroom Facilities:

We will have  between one & three portable bathrooms that are cleaned weekly and located by the main field connected to the white shed with the red roof.
