Understand the pre-game responsibilities - children should show up approximately 30 to 45 minutes before the game to warm-up and be checked in by the referee.

Read the Red Coaching manual given out at the SYSC Orientation meeting. If you didn't get a copy, you can read the rules online at - click "Rules and Procedures" on the left side.

Pay your trainer invoice WITHIN TWO WEEKS OF RECEIPT! Since you will be given a stipend from the SYSC to cover basic training, tournaments, and equipment, you probably will not have to collect money from your parents. If you decide to do multiple tournaments or buy a huge amount of equipment, have a lot of parties, or if you have a small team, you may need to collect additional funds during the spring.
