Every year there are avoidable issues and we would like to ask for your help in avoiding and resolving them as we approach the season. All of these issues could result in our loss of use of the fields which would be very regrettable and is entirely avoidable with your help and support.
Please remember that all of us in JMFA are volunteers. Please clean up the garbage from your sidelines before leaving a field.
It is extremely important that there is emergency access to all football fields. Please park only in designated parking spaces and DO NOT block gates or paths to fields. There have been instances where injured players were left on fields while car owners were searched for to move vehicles to allow ambulance access. If this was your child you would be terribly upset, please consider this when looking for a parking space. Police will be called to write tickets and have vehicles towed that are parked in these areas. Please park smart. When playing in neighborhood parks please be respectful of parking signs and driveways.
Please leave your dogs at home. Many of the fields we use do not allow dogs and it is posted at the parks and schools as such. Additionally we had an instance of a beautiful sweet golden retriever lying peacefully next to a parents chair when a big tackle occurred right in front of the dog and parent which carried the two players out of bounds. This mellow dog snapped and sunk his teeth into the thigh of one of the players. Thankfully the child was unharmed as the dog got thigh pad but it could have been different. The best pet in the world is still a dog by nature and can be unpredictable in new and unfamiliar situations. If you bring your dog to a game you will be asked to take the dog to the car, if you do not want your dog to be locked in the car for several hours please leave them at home.
Turf fields – we have access to more turf fields this year and would like to continue to be able to use these fields. ONLY WATER is allowed on turf fields. Please do not bring any food, seeds, Gatorade, juice or fruit onto these fields. Anything other than water causes bacteria to grow and will damage the field and result in the loss of the use of the fields.
Please remember that if you bring guests to games it is your responsibility to let them know the above and that when you signed the Parents Code of Ethics you agreed to make sure they will behave in accordance with those rules. Thank you for your attention to and cooperation with these issues.
JMFA is very fortunate to have the use of several Artificial Turf Fields - these fields have MAJOR RESTRICTIONS. In order for us to enjoy continued use of these fields we need everyone to respect and adhere to the following restrictions on the following fields. Home area representatives will ask you to comply when any restrictions are violated - Please help us to have continued access to these fields.
