Teams must check in 1/2 hour before game time at the Pavillion with rosters, passcards, and the team dressed and ready to play.
Below are the rules for use of Lancaster Fields. Managers are responsible for making sure that this information is gotten to all their players and parents.
Rules for all spectators and participants
NO pets - pets are prohibited on all Mass Youth Soccer property
No noisemakers of any kind are allowed at the fields.
NO smoking – smoking is prohibited on all Mass Youth Soccer property - including the restrooms
**Tents must be secured with sand bags at all times. Wrapping your players’ soccer bags around the leg of the tent will not keep the tent in place when the winds cross the complex. Tents must not be left unattended.
Spectators are not allowed on the team’s bench side of the field.
Handicap parking is reserved for valid permits only. Parking attendants will log permit numbers and license plate numbers. We have limited handicap parking and it must be used for those who truly have the need.
WEATHER RELATED ISSUES
In the event that play must be suspended, AN AIR HORN WILL SOUND INDICATING SUSPENSION OF PLAY. ALL FIELDS MUST IMMEDIATELY BE EVACUATED. A SECOND ROUND OF BLASTS ON THE AIR HORN INDICATES PLAY WILL BE RESUMED.
The referee area is off limits AT ALL TIMES.
Any team leaving trash on the Complex will be charged a $50.00 clean-up fee payable before their CLUB plays their next game. This includes the parents' side of the field, warm-up and awards areas as well. Our goal is to keep our complex clean - not to make money. If you arrive at a field that has not been cleaned by the previous team/parents, you must advise a field marshal or a tournament staff member immediately. If this is not done, then you will be responsible for the trash.
Prohibited Activities on the Synthetic Fields:
The placing or erection of any structure or object which will cause the penetration of the synthetic surface
