USL Online Waiver

2-We will have three games going on for most of the day. Please go out the double green doors when exiting. It is ok to go out the double green doors as long as the door is not open for more than a minute at a time. If you see someone has left the door open, close it!

3-There is not a lot of space to warm up so please don't come too early. For your warm-up might I suggest cadence and step ladder drills, both great for small areas to warm up in.

4-Parking- the pre-school to the South East of the Sports Lodge has agreed to let us use their lot for overflow parking. Please use this lot and avoid parking along the street. Pass this on to your parents.

5-Format for this tournament is 6v6 (5 and a goalie), sub on the fly, outdoor rules, throw-ins. I will post additional rules on the web site. Ezfacility calculates win's losses and ties automatically.

6-Because we had so many teams register within the last few days there was not enough time for me to order medals. Winning teams of each bracket will be given $200 for a team party. Please come find me after your final match. I have a couple bins of USL Champion shirts left, those will be handed out until they are gone as well I just can't promise I'll have enough for everyone.

7-We will have Divider nets separating each field, please do not let your kids hang on the nets. Also each goal will be weighted down with sand bags, please ensure those are in place and that kids are not hanging from the goals

8-If you or your team or parents get hungry during the match we are serving snacks, drinks ($1) and bowls of Chili ($3) in the lobby. Eating is ok in the dome, please dispose of the trash into the garbage bins.

Remember this is all in fun, I hope you have an enjoyable time
