All Game Days:

Players should arrive 20 minutes prior to game time in full uniform (shirts, shorts, shin guards, socks and flat bottom shoes). Please remove all jewelry, fit bits and watches. Please allow time to check-in at the Myers. Upon arrival at the Myers, and after check-in, players will be directed to the far sides of the Spectator Areas. DO NOT congregate at the entrances to the spectator area. We want to maintain social distancing for everyone. Players are expected to arrive on time to start their game. There will not be much time for a warm up. Games start at the scheduled time. We do not wait for anyone. If you are late, your team may need to forfeit.

We are asking all our SBYSL families, players, coaches, to refrain from lingering in the lobby area. Once your arrive, please move to the spectator area and once games are over, please exit the facility.

Parking:

Parking is available on the lot next to the Myers and street parking on West Bay. Please do not leave valuables in your cars. There have been incidents of theft from cars in the past in that area.

Concessions:

Players should bring their own water/Gatorade to their games. At the time of writing, we are not sure Myers will have their concession stand open on all game days.

 

Myers Rules:

No running in the facility

No ball playing in the lobby

No chewing gum

No food allowed on the field, water only

No cleats

No sitting or climbing on the railings – USE THE STAIRS!

 

Information for our family & friends:

Parents are to stay in the stands – only 2 coaches in the player bench area

Spectators and children are not allowed behind the goals

No one is allowed on the fields during half time. Please remind our siblings to stay in the stands.

 

And most of all – Be Encouraging to all our players – we are all there to have FUN!!!!
