Practice Field Signup for Recreational Teams

For the fall season, practice fields are available for teams U8 (Second Grade) and older. The signup will start on Thursday, August 27 at 10am. Practice will start the week of September 7. A link to a list of available fields and times is below.

Practice field assignments are done on a first-come first-serve basis, so if you want a certain field -  be ready at 10AM. If you are not able to do the signup at 10AM have someone else on your team do it for you. 

Each team will initially be allowed one one-hour slot per week. Once every team who wants a slot has one, there will be a secondary signup for teams that want additional time.

 

Neighbors of the Palisades and Shepherd fields are given preference at those fields. In order to get preference, you must register in advance using this form:

Three Simple Things You Can Do to Help Improve Access to Fields

It's simple, but it bears repeating: in order to have games and practices we need fields. The greatest threat to our access to fields -- especially high-quality, conveniently-located fields -- is the behavior of our members. Please remember to:

1. Park legally and considerately.

2. Take your trash home with you.

3. Leave your dog at home.Stoddert rules prohibit pets anywhere on the property at all practices and games.
