Inclement weather procedure
In case of Lightning, please wait 30 minutes from the last strike of lightning before resuming training. During games, the referee has complete control of any suspension or canceling of games.

Substitutions and Playing Time Requirements
Half of each game the mandated playing minimum per player, as long as the player has upheld his or her half of the player/parent agreement.  It is recommended that whenever possible all players should play three-fourths of each game, unless the player is unwilling or unable.

Goalkeeper Playing Time
No Goalkeeper will be used.

Game Cancellations/Reschedules
If games are cancelled due to weather, the field scheduler will reschedule all games at the same time.

All non weather related requests for game reschedules must be sent to and approved by the field scheduler at least 10 days prior to the scheduled game date. If you need to reschedule, please contact the coach of the opposing team and determine three dates/times for the reschedule. Send the request for reschedule to the field scheduler and they will let you know when a field is available for the game.

Field Closings
In the case of inclement weather, the field status will be updated on the Tyrone Lazers website. The field status will be updated by 3:00 PM during the week and by 7:00 AM on the weekend. You can receive automatic field status notifications via email or text message through

In the case of lightning, everyone must vacate the field for a minimum of 30 minutes from the last occurrence.

Team Manager
A suggestion is for each team to establish a team manager to help organize non coaching duties, team photos, and awards.  Lazers does not provide end of the season participation awards for the players.

Parent Preseason Meeting 
Hold a preseason parent meeting to discuss:

• Game and training schedule, 
• Player participation - have parents contact you when they are going to miss.
• Parent conduct, etc.

Each coach will receive their rosters on the website.  Coaches can not add players to their own rosters! All players must be registered with the Recreation Registrar.

Player Equipment
Players are required to wear shin guards under their socks during each game and practice. Additionally, they should bring a properly inflated size 1 ball and plenty of water to drink.  Georgia Soccer youth rules require that players 4U-10U, can only wear rubber molded cleats.

Match Suggestions
In our younger age groups where we play soccer “in-house” here are some suggestions for helping games run smoother.

• When a team is short on players for a match the coaches should get together and mix the teams so that games are fair and remain fun for all the kids. At no time should a team be playing short players on the field. The youngest age groups are about player development, not winning.

• When using the New Ball Method (4U-6U), coaches should knock the ball back into the center of the field. Do not play a new ball in towards one of the goals. Let’s be fair and have fun, it is not a world cup final but a youth soccer match.

• Sometimes we have games where one team is scoring lots of goals and dominating play. It is suggested that the teams halt play and mix up so that every kid can enjoy the soccer experience. There is no need to win 10-0; it does not build confidence but turns players away from the game of soccer. Our objective is for kids to play soccer not quit because they are not having fun.
