Below is the field lining schedule for Spring 2018. Each team is responsible for providing a volunteer(s) on their specified weekend. With a single volunteer, each field should take less than 30 minutes. With two volunteers, less than 20 minutes. All fields must be lined by 9:00 AM Saturday and they must be lined RAIN OR SHINE. Carts and paint can be picked up either Friday night or Saturday morning. Please pick up the paint and cart(s) (I have enough for each team to take at least 2 carts) at 18 Pitney Avenue. The carts are on the side of the house, “parked” under the deck and the paint is in the storage shed along the side of the house closest to the deck (marked soccer). Each field requires one case (6 cans) of paint. Teams assigned to Hillview must take two cans of yellow paint to line the “field within a field” shown below. Please note, the “field within a field” is only for Hillview. Empty cans can either be recycled or returned to me in the case. Please place used cans upside down, so that I know which ones are empty. A short instructional video is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeniKokwJho.
Field lining tips:
The long direction of the nozzle should point “left-right” (not “forward-backward”) in the cart;
If the lines are faint, try viewing them from a different direction;
If the nozzle pops off, typically it can be popped right back on;
Quarter circles at the corners are done by hand;
The arc and center circle are done with the cart;
Don’t forget the penalty spots (dots of paint);
The carts won’t allow you to paint right up to the goal posts - please complete by hand;
Please take your time - a thicker coat is always better than a thin one.
In order to make it easier to keep track of missed assignments, I set up a SignUp Genius (http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f054cadac2ba4f85-weekly). Coaches/managers, please communicate to your team the appropriate date and field and ask your volunteers to sign up in that specific slot. Volunteers are welcome to sign up for dates/fields in addition to their team’s assigned slot; however each team is responsible for ensuring that at a minimum, their slot is covered. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (973) 800 0348. Thank you for your support in maintaining our fields.
