Saturday Morning Trainer Sessions - Complete for the season
The Saturday morning training session have finished up for the season. Thanks to all that participated.
SCSL President Change
We want to thank John Quirke as he steps away from the lead position in SCSL and extend a warm welcome to Regina Skrebel as she moves up into the President position from the Vice President role. John has done an exemplary job at the lead role and has recently relocated and changed law firms and decided it was best if he turn over the roles to a more local presence Regina will take on the role immediately and Howard Young has stepped in to fill the Vice President role that was left vacant from Regina moving up.
In addition SCSL would like to welcome Jon Powers into the Travel Coordinator position and we've also had a change at the micro and referee coordinator positions. Jean Marie Nagle will be overseeing Micro and Tammy Rambaldi has stepped in to fulfill the challenging referee assignor position.
Please join us in welcoming everyone into their roles.
East Amwell School / Municipal Field
Parents please do not park on the grass area at the East Amwell School - only park in designated parking spots. Please set the example - otherwise our competitor parents park on the grass too! We utilize the far parking lot at the municipal building first. Some Saturdays and Sundays the township will have activities schedule and we need to be as considerate as possible.
Soccer Cleats are different then cleats for other sports. They do not employ a 'toe' cleat on the front leading edge. To ensure you purchase the proper kind of cleats we recommend that you read our primer on soccer cleats. There is more to it then you might think...Read More.
SCSL Rain Policy
We are sometimes asked - will games be played in the rain? The answer is - it depends. If a game is in progress and a shower comes over, we may press on and hope that it will pass. The referees are responsible for gauging the safety of play and making a call as to whether conditions are safe enough to continue.
Rain cancellations are managed through the website. If in doubt, check the sites home page for a weather bulletin. Coaches, Referees, Parents and even other teams come to the website for weather cancellation information.
As a rule SCSL will not attempt to start games when rain is steady at game start time. We will not start games when rain is imminent either. We are a recreation league. There is no pressure to complete games exactly as scheduled and we have provisions to schedule makeup games as needed. SCSL has to to consider the impact to the fields at all times and we consult directly with representatives of the East Amwell Recreation committee when making decisions on cancellations. We also think that it is common sense from a comfort standpoint not to make parents sit outside in the rain for up to an hour as games can be rescheduled. Of course we talk about comfort, and protecting fields, but safety is the number one reason that we would refrain from pushing through on a wet field. One last thought is that we have a lightning policy also. You can bet that if there is a thunder and lightning storm in the area or imminent we will call off any scheduled session.
Lightning AUTOMATICALLY suspends in play activities for a minimum of 20 minutes. Every flash resets this 20 minute clock. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
