CANCELLATION OF GAMES DUE TO WEATHER:
GLSA will post on the front page of our website, www.glsa.org, any game cancellations or postponements due to LTSC closing fields due to inclement weather or unplayable field conditions. Game cancellation or postponement due to weather conditions is the exclusive responsibility of LTSC in conjunction with GLSA after consideration of weather, field conditions, and foremost player safety. Coaches cannot cancel or postpone games due to weather. Referees may in rare situations terminate a game because of concerns about field conditions and player safety. GLSA realizes that on occasion parents may feel weather conditions too inclement for play, and may choose to have their child not participate.
A Lightning Prediction System is installed at LTSC. The unit senses lightning and emits a 30 second alarm that sounds like a high pitch wobble and a strobe light goes on. When you hear that alarm, clear the fields immediately and go to the safety of your car. During the alert period, a strobe light flashes on the unit and when conditions are acceptable to resume play, the horn emits a low on/off tone, and the strobe turns off.
If lightning develops while games are in progress, the referees, field marshals, and coaches should immediately instruct everyone to clear the fields and take cover in their cars.
A. Under no circumstances are goals ever to be used for recreational practices or warm-ups.
B. GLSA coaches are required to perform a Goal Safety check and sign the game card indicating the check was completed prior to the use of the field for warm ups/games. Do not allow your child to use the field prior to the completion of the goal safety check.
C. Do NOT move goals or tamper with anchor stakes or sandbags
D. Do NOT allow children to hang on goals or climb on nets.
E. No practice warm-up in the goal area by players or visitors.
F. Contact the nearest field marshal and have them call a LTSC or the GLSA GAME DAY SUPERVIOR if you need any type of assistance with goals or nets.
The Libertyville Township Soccer Complex is a “Heart Safe” Venue. There are two Automated External Defibrillator Units on Site. During Recreation Weekends they are located as follows;
Unit # 1 Emergency Box on new Concession Stand Bldg. (field #1)
Unit # 2 The Referee/Volunteer shed, with the Game Day Supervisor
In the event of a Cardiac Emergency, dial 911 than immediately contact a field marshal. Our Game Day Supervisor is CPR and AED trained, and will be available with the unit to assist you.
If a Field Marshal is not immediately available, you may reach the game day supervisor directly at the Ref/Vol Shed.
Sport Safe Training:
Coaches and Assistant Coaches must be Safe Sport Trained, Concussion Trained and submit an IYSA Background check which is a mandated program designed by Congress for the protection of every child. Coaches who are not Safe Sport Trained will not be allowed to coach.
Enjoy the Season and Keep Kicking!!!
