Nielsen Field:

Below is the “Goal Grid” about where the goals are stored and where they go on the field.  The first teams on the schedule are responsible for setup.  The last teams are responsible for the teardown.  Please see the notes at the bottom of the grid.  U8 and U10 begin at 8:00 a.m. except that GU10 starts at 10:00 a.m. on the Mace Field where the VIPs do most of the setup.  Make sure your goals are staked and the corner flags are up. 

On the Nielsen East fields (BU8), there is a basic teardown after the 9:00am matches because the Older VIPs use the large field.  Just move the goals off the big field and stake them for safety.  Then at 11:30am, the VIPs move the big goals off and the BU8s need to move the goals back on the field and stake them.  Replace the corner flags as well.

Nielsen East South ends after the 12:30 match.  Please store the goals and move the stakes and flags to the storage bin.  Nielsen East North ends after the 1:30 pm match.  Store the goals, etc.  The U12s set up the big Nielsen East field before their 2:45 pm match.  The goals, etc. get stored from the U12 matches after the 5:15pm match.

As you can see, it gets a little bit complicated.  That’s why I try to be around the field as much as possible to help things go right.  But I’ll be doing more refereeing now and will depend on the teams to help out.

Nielsen West North and South run from 8:00am.  Despite what the schedule says, the boys stay on the North field until their matches end after the 2:15pm match, then they do the teardown.  The girls’ South field has fewer games and is sometimes followed by Extra matches and sometimes by boys matches.  Whoever has the 2:15pm match does the teardown.

The large field on Nielsen West is used by U16s and U19s.  The field can stay set up overnight on Saturday as we use it again on Sunday.  The last Sunday match does the teardown.

Nielsen East is used both as a U10 field and U12 or U14 field.  Last teams do the teardown.  Please watch the schedule.
