New Rules For fall/spring
FPSC Club Requirements
"Code of Conduct Policy -- Requirement for a second
coach or parent assistant in attendance with Head Coach or Trainer during practice sessions."
As per the FPSC new policy, Coaches are not allowed to have practices without having a 2nd adult present.
So I will be creating a schedule asking each parent to attend a practice.
This is a rule from the FPSC Insurance company that must be followed.
"Trainer Requirements -- All teams, at EVERY AGE GROUP, are REQUIRED
to have a professional trainer for at least one practice per week during the league season."
I am working out a schedule with Jackie. All players will be responsible for trainer fees.
New Team Rules For fall/spring
Rovers Team Requirements
Uniform Requirements -- We will be purchasing Black Socks.
We will be replacing the White Uniform socks with black ones as well as adding a new uniform combination.
I will be collecting for the socks before the season starts. (approx $10-$12 per player)
Combinations will be:
• White Shirt, Black Shorts, Black Socks
• Green Shirt, Black Shorts, Black Socks
• Green Shirt, Green Shorts, Green Socks
Practice Requirements -- All players are required to attend all practices.
• Practices will be 1 hr and 15 min
• Practice will start promptly at 4:30 (still tbd)
• Players must be there on time
• Players must be ready to go when practice starts
(not walking to the field or putting on cleats once practice has started)
Playing Time -- Extra playing time must be earned this year.
• All players will start playing 1/3 of a game
• Extra playing time will go to players who show they want and deserve it
• Attitude, dedication, passion, work ethic, attendance, will be some of the factors looked at when handing out playing time
We are now GU14 which is the recommended age for no longer following equal playing time, but introducing
earned playing time and rewarding players who put in the time and work. This will help all to prepare for high school sports.
Parental Involvement -- Please try to let your daughters handle any issues they have on their own..
Ex. issues such as playing time, positions, or team or player responsiblities.
One aspect of becoming strong, confident, young adults is the ability to speak to figures of authority and to stand up for oneself. This is something that
I try to teach these girls to empower them. Every time I receive a text, call or email from a parent about their daughter, you are
denying them the ability to learn and practice this "life lesson."
Help your daughter by letting her learn to help herself.

Register here for Summer Practices, Rovers Elite Gold, or Winter League/Practices.
A number of girls have asked to continue to practice over the Summer. We will be practicing at FPM most likely Friday mornings around 11 (still tbd) but may do late evenings.
Rovers Elite Gold
Rovers Elite Gold is our optional tournament team separate from our full roster. It is for players who would like to attend other tournaments
rather than just playing in the regular season and L.I. Cup games. Girls joining will be obligated to purchase an Elite Gold Jacket.
Girls that signed up last year must sign up again this year.
As the girls get older and busier, they may choose to not play during the winter. I will choose the league and format (5v5,9v9,etc...) depending on the number of players interested.
I would like to practice at Globall like we did last year, I believe that was very helpful for the girls development and a lot of fun. We would need enough girls to sign up to make it more affordable though.
** These are all completely optional. **
