Field Marshals

Each Home Team must provide one (1) parent to be Field Marshal during your game and will be responsible for the field where their child is playing and the surrounding area.  Please report for duty 30 minutes prior to your game time.

Field Marshals for the first game of the day should check in with the Officer of the Day and get a vest.  For later games, you will get a vest from the Field Marshal on duty for the current game on your field.  If there is no game in progress on your field when you arrive, please check in with the Officer of the Day to get a vest. 

If you have any questions or problems, please check with the Officer of the Day.  A full job description is listed at the bottom of this page.  If you have any questions, please contact Shoukat Qari.
