Updated Friday May 3, 2019 by RHSC.

Red Hook Soccer Club is an all volunteer club. The more hands helping the easier it all is, this is why we ask the families of our players to volunteer to line the fields. Please coordinate with your coaches to line the field on your teams schedueld day. Some fields, 4 & 9, may need two families to do it together. If you don’t line the fields when scheduled (or have someone do it) no one will.        

 

The fields are mowen Friday AM so Field Lining should be completed anytime Friday afternoon (“Lining Day”), or, in the event of rain, Saturday AM (“Game Day”).                                

The shed at Rockefeller Lane fields contains the lining machines, paint, etc. Please get the combination for the lock from your coach.             

 

Use existing lines as your guide, and paint directly over top of them. In the event that lines are not visible or are not straight, stretch a string from corner to corner and follow the string.                                              

Please do not paint lines “freehand”. String supplies etc. are in the file cabinet in the shed.  If you have never done this, ask someone on your team (or coach) to show you how.                                            

Once you have completed your field lining, collect all empty paint cans and place them upside down in the boxes in the shed, and you’re done!                                             

Field Lining should take approximately 1/2 hour depending on the size of the field that you are assigned. Any questions, email fields@redhooksoccer.com                                            

If you are seeding goal mouths and bare spots, use seed in shed and hand distribute in areas that are bare on the fields.  Kids cleats will work it in.                                            

Don’t lock the shed, as you may prevent others from gaining access.  Coaches that practice on Friday’s will lock the shed.     

 

Thank you in advance for your help in keeping the Red Hook Soccer Club fields in a great shape.                                          

We are an all-volunteer league made stronger by your help!
