Coaches should phone all parents as soon as possible to advise them of the date, time and location of the first night. When phoning parents, advise them that the players should wear cleats, shin pads, socks, shorts and t-shirt the first night so they will be prepared to have a scrimmage.
The soccer season for all teams starts on either Monday, June 2 or Tuesday, June 3 (depending on your age division). There will not be any official games that night – no referees will be assigned.
Coaches should use the night to:
Make sure all your parents have the phone number and email address of both the coach and assistant coach. You should encourage parents to advise you if their children are going to miss a game.

Coaches are also encouraged to have either a practice or short scrimmage on the first night.
Note: When you get receive your uniforms (one shirt, pair of shorts and socks per player), please ensure everything is there. Advise your Convenor immediately if anything is missing.
