  • No food or drink is permitted at the facility
  • No chewing gum as you enter the facility or during practice
  • Players have the use of a locker room and the option to shower after practice or games
  • Remember that we are guest of the first team and as such your conduct should always be professional at all times
  • Please take a proactive approach in helping us keep the facility clean


Parents:

 

  • Only players and coaches are permitted at the facility for practice. We respectfully request that parents wait outside the gate on the footbridge.
  • Parents and family members are welcome at the facility for match days. There are bleachers located to the left of the entrance gate. We request that parents use only the gravel pathway as they enter the facility and refrain from standing on the turf.
