SVUSD Practice Fields & Rules

Welcome to the 2021 Fall Season.
Click here for printable copy


     
 We're looking forward to a fun, safe and fair season. Some of the following rules have been learned the hard way. These rules have been established so that we can continue to use the practice fields to which we have been assigned.  Any individual school or the SVUSD can revoke a Field Use Permit at any time if we have not treated their campus and/or employees with respect.   The rules about behavior are common sense and also apply to practices at other locations such as parks.
                        
Rules for Using SVUSD Practice Fields
       
  No practices are allowed a half hour before or during school functions such as the Father / Daughter Dance and Harvest Festival celebrations.
  I have been told by several principals that Back to School Nights will be online this year.
  It’s the team’s responsibility to check with the office about the school schedule and cancel or relocate their  practice on days when there are conflicts.            

  No animals are allowed at games or practices.  This is an AYSO rule.  It keeps insurance rates and registration fees low.
   
No urinating or defecating on school grounds.  This should go without saying.  This was a major concern a couple of years ago.  We don’t want this kind of reputation. Make sure players and spectators use the rest room at home before leaving for practice.  For a player who has to go, have a plan in place for a parent or a couple of parents, using proper child safety guidelines, to shuttle the player to the nearest Carl’s Jr., McDonald's etc. or call to have the child's parent pick up that player.  
     
Do not ask the custodians to open bathrooms.  They are not allowed to and there have been isolated incidents of some parents being very offensive and intimidating to custodians.  Let the custodians do their jobs. If we interfere with their duties, the school district will have good reason to deny us a permit for that school.  Instead, let’s give the custodians smiles, waves, our thanks, donuts, etc.
**  New info— Please do not use the playground equipment.  The schools are cleaning the equipment to prevent the spread of Covid 19 and do not want anyone other than their students using the playground equipment.  AYSO insurance does not cover use of the playground equipment.
   
Please pick up your trash. In our agreement with the schools, we could be charged a minimum of $80 if custodians are required to clean up after us. That fee will be passed on to the offending teams.
 
If you are the last ones off the fields, lock the gates.
Please be respectful of others.
Be a good citizen.

Please read info about each school because there have been some minor and some major changes from past years.

Some parents aren't able to get players to very early practices.  For that reason, please don't schedule practices before 5:00.

Many closing times are earlier than times shown on the permits.  If not specified, assume all schools must be vacated by 8:00
Last group to leave, please lock the gates.

 Practice Locations for Fall 2021

All of the following practice locations are currently available for use by teams whose coaches are fully certified for the division which they are coaching.

**New Info—
1.  ARROYO E.S.— To access the practice fields, enter the small parking lot at the extreme east end of the campus, east of the YMCA building.  Go to the north end of this parking lot where the double gate is located.  To the left of the double gate is a single gate with a combination lock marked “SPORTS”.  Get the combination from your Division Director after you have emailed the above SVUSD RULES ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FORM to the Division Director.
Fields close at dusk.  Last team out, please lock the gate.
     
2.  Big Springs E.S.—Use gate at south end of school where Ft. Davis St. and Hamlin Ave. meet.  Must be off campus by 6:30, when the custodian locks the gate.

3.  Crestview E.S.—Use double gate to right (south) of office.  Fields close at dusk.  Last team out, please lock gate.          

4.  Hollow Hills E.S.—Use the gate to the left (north) of the front of school, by the YMCA.   Fields close at dusk.  Last team out, please shut the gate.

5.  Katherine E.S.—Facing the school, use gate at left (west) side next to the office building.  Gate is locked by the custodian at 7:00.

6.  Hollow Hills E.S.—Facing the office from the parking lot, use the gate to the right (west) of the office.  Prop gate open if necessary for other teams to enter. Fields close at dusk.   Last team out, please shut gate.

7.  Mountain View E.S.—Coaches must email the Office Manager, Francene in the Main Office if they want to practice at Mountain View. Her email address             is [email protected]  Office hours end at 4:00.                                                                       
 Access practice fields from the large double gate located at the far right (east) end the main parking lot along Fletcher St.  Be sure to shut the gate after entering. Check with Francine for combination.  All teams must be off fields by 8:00.  Last team to leave the fields please lock the gate.

****Note: It is important that the gate is locked correctly.  When locking the gate, lock the SPORTS combination lock directly to the closest padlock on the other end of the chain, forming a chain of locks, where any padlock, if opened, will allow the gate to be opened. If you connect the lock incorrectly, the school will not be able to open the gate when necessary. School employees may be forced to cut our lock.

8.  PARK VIEW E.S.—
The principal has requested that practices take place on the west end of campus, away from After School Care.  Park View restrooms are not available for use by sports organizations.
Call school to see if field is available for practice Aug. 19, Oct. 22 & 29 and November 2.  No practices those days unless it is available.
 
Facing school from parking lot, use gate by left (east) end of fence.  Get the combination from your Division Director after you have emailed the above SVUSD RULES ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FORM to the Division Director. Fields close at dusk.   Last team out, please lock gate.  


When locking the gate, lock the AYSO combination lock directly to the school padlock.  If you connect the AYSO lock to the chain or the other side of the gate, the school will not be able to open the gate when necessary. School employees may be forced to cut our lock.

9.  Township E.S.—Facing the office from the parking lot, enter campus through gate directly behind the flagpole on the right (east) side of the office.  Combination is 2020.   Get the combination from your Division Director after you have emailed the above SVUSD RULES ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FORM to the Division Director.
