Save money and support FTSA

Viridian is an alternative energy provider to PSEG.  You can switch to using them as your energy source, save money on your bill, continue to have PSE&G as your billing source and they will donate money to FTSA!  No cost to switch and no obligation.  I switched in April of 2011 and recommend that you do so too.  Click above for more information.

Notices

CONCUSSION TRAINING  -- All recreational and travel coaches are required to complete concussion training. After completing training please both carry a copy of your certification with you to games & practices and send an electronic copy to Cathy Anthony.

bullet

RESTRICTIONS -- No Dogs, Smoking or Alcohol is allowed on or near any of our soccer fields.

PLAYER PICK UP -- We cannot be responsible for your children if you fail to pick them up after games or practices. Coaches are not allowed to drive players home. In case of emergency make sure that you have a way of contacting someone with whom you left your child. If you abandon your children at a field, be prepared to pick them up at the police station. This sounds harsh but is for the protection of all the players and our volunteer coaches.

bullet

NO JEWELRY -- Players may not wear ear rings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, etc. during games or practices. Referees are not given any latitude regarding this rule. Please do not send you child to a game or practice wearing any such items.

bullet

GOALS -- Portable goals are not to be moved off the field to which they are designated. This applies to all coaches at all times.

bullet

PARKING -- Properly parking your vehicles is a matter of safety, respect for property and the law. Improper parking will not be tolerated. Please park in proper spots even if that means a few minutes walk to your child's activities. Police will be ticketing at all fields.

bullet

BADGES -- Our Township requires all coaches to have passed a background check and to wear their Township issued photo ID whenever they are coaching. Instructions for applying for a background check can be found on the Township website. Before applying for a background check, you must first coordinate with the soccer league so that the Township can confirm the need for processing the request.

bullet

TRAINING -- Coaches, please remember that our Bylaws require coaches training. All Coaches U8 and above must obtain a NJYSA "F" license or higher. Click here for the latest schedule of "F" License courses.
