UPDATES ON PRACTICE/EQUIPMENT/COACHING

Posted: 08/07/15 at 12:14 AM

FIRST PRACTICE

Our first practice of the season is still set for this Saturday, August 8th.  This practice will be held at OMS
from 9-10:30am.  All players and parents should gather on the track around the football field.

For this practice, players only need to wear a t-shirt, shorts and cleats since it will be a non-contact practice.  Also remember to make sure players bring plenty of water in a container clearly marker with their name on it.  For hydration guidelines and other safety information please click here.

EQUIPMENT SIZING & DISTRIBUTION

All players will be sized for equipment immediately after practice.  New players will only be issued equipment if the provide the necessary paperwork (e.g. notarized affidavit of true birth certificate and a copy of their birth certificate).

Please remember that birth certificates (copies or originals) will NOT be accepted by the league. They only need to be reviewed as evidence compliance to SCPAL rules.   If a properly completed affidavit* is not provided then equipment will not be given to a player.

IMPORTANT : The name of the Organization on the Affidavit should be HFY Sports Club(not Harborfields Youth Football).

ASSISTANT COACHES

If you are interest ed in being a n assistant coach this season there are several requirements that need to be completed before SCPAL will allow an individual to be a coach on a team.  As a result, there will be a mandatory coaches meeting held this Saturday after practice and equipment distribution (around 11:30am). The purpose of this meeting is to ensure that you understand and submit the necessary information for all coaching requirements. 

The coaching requirements are listed below.  Details & deadline for each requirement will be distributed once all assistant coaches are selected by the Board.  

Coaching Requirements:

  • Submit a HF Coaching Application (new coaching candidates only)**
  • Submit a HF Coaches Contract (All coaching candidates)**
  • Complete the SCPAL online Background Check
  • Complete the USA Football Tackle Football Coaching Certification or re-certification course
  • Attend a SCPAL coaching clinic at PAL Complex in Holbrook (new coaches only)

** If possible, all coaching candidates should complete the HF Coaching Application AND Coaches Contract prior to the coaches meeting. Candidates can either email the documents to me beforehand or bring printed copies with them to Saturday’s meeting.  Otherwise, all applications & contracts must be submitted no later than next Wednesday, August 12th.  

As a rule , SCPAL only allows 5 coaches (including the head coach) per team.  Since some of our age groups may have more than five coaching candidates Lou and I will review each application in order to decide who is the best coach ing candidate for this season’s teams.

PRACTICE HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED

Posted: 08/01/15 at 12:14 PM

Tomorrow’s practice has been rescheduled.

Apologies for the late notice but unfortunately the Club was not able to obtain a field permit from the School District in time for tomorrow’s practice.  As a result, the first practice of the season has been moved to Saturday, August 8 th.  This practice will run from 9-11am and the location will depend on which field we are granted access to by the District.  It most likely will be HHS or OMS.  More details will be distributed once a permit is received.

EQUIPMENT DISTRIBUTION NIGHT

Posted: 08/01/15 at 12:12 PM

Next Friday, August 7 th will be equipment distribution night at HHS .  The time has not yet been determined (again we need a permit) but it most likely will start around 6 or 7pm.  If you selected the “Pay by Check” option during registration you must submit your payment before any equipment will be given out.  Also, new players to the Harborfields program will need to submit a notarized copy of the PAL Affidavit for Original and True Birth Record (click here) and well as bring a copy of your child’s Birth Certificate. Please note that the Club will NOT take any copies of a Birth Certificate since we only need to review it along with the affidavit. New players that do not have a notarized affidavit or copy of their birth certificate will not be issued equipment.
