Information for Players and Parents

ATTENTION: 

There may be some modifications to playing schedules to meet social distancing requirements. All parents on fields must wear face masks or stay in their vehicle or parking area. Scheduling and playing times and conditions will be dependent on numbers in each age group. Players on sidelines will wear masks and coaches will always wear masks. Social distancing of parents on sidelines is expected along with masks. We are limiting the game watchers on field to two parent (guardians) and siblings. This may be updated as the season starts. Covid-19 requirements may be adjusted so come back to this page as season begins.

Playing Questions:
The information provided here is meant to assist you with issues that frequently come up in conversations.  If there are other issues that need answers email or call David Hahn at dbhahn45@aol.com or 740 695 4207. Parents may wish to have their child moved up or to play down due to experience or physical development. Coaches are not able  to make that decision; David Hahn must be contacted for these inquiries. Generally, our rule is any child moving up must be emotionally and physically ready and per evaluations be in the upper 50% of the higher group by skills and physical ability.

Pricing will also be shown with each age group on registration platform.​

  • Coach information:  Coaches will provide game and practice schedules to parents. They will provide SCASA contact information rules, and COVID-19 restrictions. Coaches on the field will be the COVID Administrations for their team. Should parents not observe the masking requirements on playing field, play or practice will be stopped until they are masked or leave playing area. They will be expected to ask parents and players if anyone has symptoms or is sick.  Anyone ill is not permitted to be at Capstone Soccer Complex until self-quarantine has ended. Coaches will be registered with background checks and other required safety training. They will be given soccer training materials. Parents who want to become assistant coaches must also be registered and have background checks. Parents are not permitted to stand with the team and should never stand behind the goal area in games. Some coaches may suggest a snack schedule for the younger teams, however we advise considering the risk of COVID-19 before making a decision. At least half of the games will be played at Capstone occasionally a year end recreation tournament may be scheduled. Games are usually scheduled for 6 pm during the week. Official referees will be scheduled for all travel team games.  Many of these referees are young, but their decision/call is the rule and final. We strongly discourage parents and coaches from screaming and yelling at the referee. Referees can remove parents, coaches, and players for their behavior at their own discretion and have been trained to do so. Failure to comply with the referee can result in but is not limited to termination of the game.

 

  • Referees may be limited this season.  Please be considerate of our young referees. We will try to provide referees for all travel teams. It will be helpful if age group coordinators try to limit one home game per evening for their group.
