Parents' Responsibilities

Important Information for All Parents

PLEASE READ THE LETTER AT THIS LINK, and review the information below.

Parents are responsible for:

  • Ensuring that their children are properly registered for each upcoming season. Registration is held twice each year in accordance with the Club by-laws.
  • Providing their medical insurance company and policy number upon registration. Failure to provide this information will result in the registrant being ineligible to play. If no medical insurance coverage is provided by the family the Club must be notified.
  • Sending a copy of a birth certificate for players who have not played in the Stoneham Soccer Club organization within the past three years. New registrants cannot be accepted without certification of birth date.
  • Verifying all information on the roster relative to your child. Report any incorrect information to the registrar immediately so that the club records can be updated.
  • Notifying the registrar if you do not want your telephone number published. The number will be given to the coach and not printed on the roster. It is important that the club has the correct nighttime phone number on record since it is the only means of contacting you.
  • Providing each player with the complete uniform as prescribed by the Stoneham Soccer Club.
  • Providing transportation for their children to and from games and practices. A roster of team members is provided so that car pools may be arranged.
  • Ensuring that your child is on time for practices and at the field at least 15 minutes prior to scheduled game time.
  • Arranging to have your child picked up promptly after games and practices. Many coaches wait until all children have been picked up before leaving the field so as to not leave children unsupervised. Coaches have been kept late repeatedly by the same parents. Please be considerate of those who are donating their time for your children.
  • Reading the list of player responsibilities and help your child meet them.
