Administrative Overview

Field Marshall's supervise overall activity at each site.

Field Marshall, Registrar, Team Balancer, Game Supervisor(s), and Pinnies Manager set up field area with pickup fields, canopies, 2 tables & chairs starting at 7:30am. Some of these roles may collapse into just a few people. Regular fields get set up by regular teams that arrive early.

Parents arrive with their teams or non-AYSO participants.  Regular AYSO Parents, Coaches, and Referees generally do what they normally do but may have guest players mixed onto their teams and everyone should be flexible about re-balancing teams as needed.
