At the start of the season, coaches will need to fill out and submit a Coaches Pledge Form


 For EACH game:

  •      Arrive to the playing field 45 minutes before the start time, to allow ample time to check in players/greet opposing coaches/allow adequate warmup time for the players
  • ***Field Set up and Break down! All GU10 coaches should arrive to home games at least 45 minutes prior to the start of the game to set up the fields!!! In the past, we have been lucky to have people there doing it for us. This season, it is up to the coaches. Every weekend there are 2 GU10 games, so both fields need to be set up. All other coaches should help with set up for their games and the game after them. We DO NOT let the players move the goals!!! Only coaches and/or parents are allowed to move goals. The team with the last game of the day is responsible for breaking down the field. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
  • Present the Ref cards(filled out) to the head ref before the start of all your home games, along with (2) copies of your official roster.  Away games you only need to submit the roster sheet.
  • Changes to the rosters can only be done through the registrar.
  • SCORES need to be reported to Ron Bedard by the day after your game. Please send the following info to Ron Bedard: you can use this ONLINE FORM SUBMISSION
  • team(example) BU14 A
  • game ID #
  • result

You can also fill out a Referee Evaluation at the NVYSL website.


If you need to reschedule a game for any reason:

  • discuss a possible make-up date with the other teams coach
  • contact the Outlaws League Rep(Ron Bedard); he will notify the league and get approval for the new date. Without league approval, the game cannot be played.





Equipment: at the start of each season, our Equipment Manager(       )- will issue any player uniforms needed as well as setting up each time with an adequate supply of practice and game balls, and a medical kit.




We thank the Outlaws Coaches for all you do for the kids in Ashburnham and Westminster!
