3. If your team is playing an out of town team and you are unable to attend please contact your coach prior to 4:00pm
on game day.
4. Due to Alberta weather’s unpredictability,​
decision to cancel practice is not made until 4:30 pm.​
​
Please don’t call
your coaches or any of the executives before 4:30 pm as no decision will have been made yet. All house league players
must get off the fields if hail, heavy rain, or thunder and lightning is occurring. Competitive players will be playing in all
kinds of weather so please bring blankets, sunscreen, bug spray, etc.
5. No unregistered players will be allowed on the field during any BMSA games or practices. There are heavy fines by
A.S.A. if this rule is violated.
6. On the rare occasion that a player is injured (most injuries usually only need a Band-Aid ‘fix’), please make sure that
there is someone responsible in the spectator’s area. The coach or assistant can tend to minor injuries, and even
though many of our coaches have first aid, they will not transport any players to hospital facilities. Ambulances will be
called if the injury is severe.
7. Just a reminder that there are no bathroom facilities available at Centennial Park and only one at the All Star Park
field when it is open.
8. ​
There will be no refunds after the season starts – no exceptions!
9. Many parents have to be at the field to watch their children. Instead of sitting, volunteer to help the coaches if
you can, your children will thank you for it. Coaching is very enjoyable and rewarding, and is greatly appreciated! If you
cannot coach or assist, volunteer to watch a child for someone who can coach. Any and all help is needed and
appreciated for a successful season in soccer.
Player’s Guide
1. Shin-pads and proper shoes (sturdy runners or soccer cleats) must be worn at all games and practices to ensure the
safety of each player. It is mandatory that cleats are rubber and not steel. Steel capped cleated are not permitted.
2. No jewellery, hair clips, sunglasses or hats with ‘beaks’ are to be worn during practices or games for safety reasons.
For House League teams, shin pads must be covered by socks (adult tube socks work best) or sweat pants - warm
clothing can be worn under the t-shirt for added warmth, if necessary. If your child needs to wear a hat, make sure
that it is the floppy type. Competitive players must wear socks over shin pads.
3. Players are responsible for bringing their own drinking water (preferable with their names on the container) during
the practices and games.
4. Control your temper - ​
NO foul language of any sort can be used on or off the soccer field​
. Think before you talk!
Any player who use foul language will be benched.
5. Cooperate with your coach, teammates and opponents for without them, you don’t have a game.
6. Remember that the goal of every game is to have fun - improve your skills, show good sportsmanship and feel good
about yourself.
