Field Maintenance and Policies

While enjoying the use of our partner field locations, we ask for your help in identifying any field maintenance issues that are not in compliance for meeting minimum standards of safety for our players. Once issues are identified, please notify the Field Coordinator via email at Fields@TORSOsoccer.org. The Fields Coordinator will be responsible for bringing the matter to the attention of the host facility.

Common areas of field maintenance issues are:

  • 4 corner flags of proper height
  • Goal nets that are in good repair and are secured to the goal posts
  • Accurate field markings of proper width and visibility
  • Inadequate lighting for safe play
  • Minimum distances between technical areas, touch lines, spectators / stands
  • Repair holes or other dangerous objects (sprinkler heads) that may be exposed on the field

A complete listing of field requirements may be found in the FIFA Laws of the Game manual.

We are guests at the fields and we encourage our families to come and watch our matches.

  • No profanity.
  • No litter - please pick up any trash
  • Be respectful when addressing any field manager
  • If the field manager or a peace officer directs you to leave the facility, please abide their diection and leave without comment or incident. Please contact the Fields Coordinator about any notable encounter with these officials
  • Know and abide by the unique rules of each field venue.
