Information to Pass onto Parents
1. Mansfield Youth Soccer strictly adheres to a Zero Tolerance policy. Teams or parents violating this policy may result in their team forfeiting a game or games and removal from the soccer complex.
2. BACK THIS YEAR: BUS transportation from parking lots and on street parking locations. Parking will be restricted to one side of the street therefore cars can be parked as far as a ½ of a mile from the complex. For the convenience of the teams we have hired a bus to pick up at well marked bus stops throughout the day. Drop off your items at the drop off area by the entrance, park and walk to nearest posted bus stop and catch a ride to the complex entrance.To ensure the parking goes as smoothly as possible please take note of these tips: o Please be sure not to park in blocked off spaces or your car will be subject to towing. o Parking attendants will direct you to overflow parking once the complex parking lot and the outbound side of the street is full. o Please be prepared for a 10+/-minute walk/ride to the playing fields. o Drop off campsite items (tables/tents) at entrance of complex then park and walk/ride back. o Do not move barrels in order to make a parking spot, your car will be towed if you do.
3. Dogs are NOT ALLOWED at the Plymouth Street Soccer Complex. Anyone who brings a dog will not be permitted into the complex.

Games on Saturday and Sunday will begin play at the top of every hour from 8:00am until final games at 5:00pm. Be prepared to play a minimum of three games on Saturday or Sunday. Some teams may have a 4th game due to odd number of teams in a bracket. Final games on Monday are likely to start at 9am and end no later than 5:00PM.
