MAA Soccer Game Procedures

Mineola Soccer Club

Game Day Safety Protocols: 

            We are thrilled to have soccer at Wilson Park.  Please adhere to all safety guidelines that are listed below.  All safety procedures have been cleared by the Village of Mineola and we appreciate your help in making sure that the all guidelines are enforced and followed.   At your game, the Parent Coordinator of the Mineola team will be the safety marshal for the game is you have any questions, however we are relying on the good judgement of all spectators during the game so that the coaches can pay attention to the kids on the field. 

If there is a game going on prior to your game, please do your best to keep all spectators in their cars in the parking lot until the sidelines are cleared.  Athletes can find a space together to warm up AWAY from the fans of the other team.
