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.

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 5 ball and plenty of water to drink.

Referee Needs on RIAS Game Day
When the referee checks in the team for the RIAS games he/she is expecting two things:

1. Player cards that are laminated with signatures and pictures for each player. No pass, No play. This is a state rule.

2. Two copies of the computer generated team roster. Each player must be listed on the roster. If more than 18 players are rostered on the team, then the coach should determine prior to game day which 18 players will be shown on the roster. ONLY those 18 players can play during the game. If a player is written on the roster, he is not eligible to play.

The reason for two copies of the team roster is:
One copy goes to the home team, one to the away team, one to the referee and if a red card is issued a copy goes to the state. Also, the home team coach is responsible for assigning a field marshal for EACH game.
