. It is critical that the tournament operate on time
. Our volunteers who are managing the score board and clock have been instructed to start the clock regardless of whether or not the teams have taken the field
. As a result, please ensure to have your lineup ready and your players on the field prepared to start
. Likewise, at the end of your gam e, please have your players exit the field as quickly as possible
. If you are taking a long time to exit the field, you will be asked to exit quickly, please understand our volunteers are doing this to ensure that we do not impact the start of the next game.
. Do not have teams do handshakes on the field, this should take place off the field - Especially in the bubble.
. Please have your players bring only their water to the player\coach sideline, players do not need to bring their soccer bags to the player sideline in the bubble, it just takes more time for them to retrieve their bags at the conclusion of the game.

Coleman Playhouse & Bubble Exit & Entrance
Parents & Spectators must not block the exit and entrance in both turf field facilities. This especially becomes an area of concern in the Bubble. If you are standing in front of the revolving door, this creates a fire hazard, you will be ask to move either by Tournament Staff or Coleman Staff.

Tournament Café & Theater
Registration & Coaches will take place in the Coleman Cafe, which is located across the large bubble after you enter the facility. Most of the award ceremonies will take place in the Coleman Theater, which is located behind the Coleman Café. If you are leaving before the award ceremony, please check with Tournament Staff to be sure one of your players did not win one of the MVP awards.
