FOUL WEATHER

We will make every attempt to play games on game days.  We will  play in the rain as long as it is still safe for the kids and the field will not be damaged while playing.  In the event of thunder or lighting the fields will be cleared and remain cleared until 30 minutes has passed without any thunder or lighting. Spectators and players are instructed to return to their cars when the fields have to be cleared and remain there until a league official has given the OK to return to the fields.  The Barn can be used for those that don’t have a car at the facility.

We will post a message on the website when Chesland is closed due to foul weather.  Additionally CSL participants can subscribe to our text message notifications to get the latest CSL News.  Text SOCCER to 77948 to enroll ( standard message rates apply)

Mission Statement

The objective of youth soccer should be for the players to have fun. Coaches and parents should teach good sportsmanship, self-reliance, and teamwork. The emphasis should not be on winning, but on team participation and self-improvement in skills, coordination, and strategy.

The goal of every youth soccer coach should be to provide every player with opportunities to reach his maximum potential in the game of soccer. Coaches must balance fun and discipline according to the ages and ability levels of their players. Coaches should evaluate players’ strengths and weaknesses in such areas as size, speed, physical strength, endurance, coordination, ball control, and tactical abilities-the ability to read and understand the game of soccer.

The league places the game of soccer ahead of any desire to win, regardless of level of play. If any administrator or coach, no mater how capable, fails to control his, or has players who consistently contravene the laws of soccer, the League will act to remedy the situation. Disciplinary action may include the suspension or expulsion of either the coach, the player, or the team. Such discipline should only come when absolutely necessary and only after the other avenues for remedial action have been exhausted.
