Field Policy

General Overview:

Due to the number of teams requesting usage (Rec League, Select teams, County and City School teams, Adult League) WUSC expects teams to continually work together to utilize all available field space.  Also, field space is to remain to no more than a full field (i.e. Field 1B for U4 team) and in some cases half that amount of field space.  There is not a requirement to have two goals per practice team.

Upcoming changes to United States Soccer’s (mandated August 2016) focus on small sided games, field sizes, and age groups will require teams to focus on smaller areas and more touches for their teams.

Coaches are expected to sign up for the text message notification system to be informed on field closures/rain outs.  The league will relay information via this method. 

In the event fields are closed due to weather, this information will be posted to the Wilson United website and notification transmitted instantly on the text message system.

Rain outs may apply to only certain fields in the complex in some instances.  If a field is closed either for a day or for the season, teams, parents, siblings, etc. are not allowed on these fields.  Failure to abide by this policy will result in loss of field privileges for a period of time determined by the Field Coordinator and the WUSC Board.

The last team/coach utilizing the fields each day will be responsible for ensuring all facilities, equipment, and gates are closed and locked per WUSC policy.  The combination locks and keys will be returned to their initial location.

Policy:

Recreation Level:
Wilson United Recreation Soccer will provide the policy to coaches each season pertaining to field availability and reservation process. 

Middle/Home School:
Teams/Schools will attempt to provide as much notice as possible in requesting field usage for games to allow the Scheduling Coordinator and Referee Coordinator time to confirm field and referee availability.

Eagle Express Select:
Teams will attempt to provide as much notice as possible in requesting field usage for games to allow the Scheduling Coordinator and Referee Coordinator time to confirm field and referee availability.

Due to the number of teams and fields, Select teams will be allowed to reserve fields for games once a month during each season. If fields are available, teams may request additional time slots after all other eligible teams have confirmed no need of field space for that month, and have received permission from the Club Director.

In addition, Wilson United Recreation and Adult League games have priority in scheduling and normally occupy fields through 3pm on Saturdays. Therefore, Saturday games are discouraged unless there are not Rec games that weekend.

Field reservations are on a first come, first served basis though the online form.  Teams may not reserve fields on the hopes of scheduling friendlies in the future.

Procedure: 

Requests will be submitted via the Wilson United Field Request Online Application. Requests will be confirmed and posted to the Field Calendar by the Wilson United Field Scheduling Coordinator.
