GENERAL FIELD POLICY (Teams need to send this information to their opponents):
- Follow traffic direction signs
- DO NOT DRIVE ON FIELDS (i.e., to take the goals from the shed to your assigned field or for any other reason).
- PARKING – Vehicles are to be parked between the polo field and the tree line, at the top of the hill. Vehicles are not to enter towards the field area. Walk onto the path that leads to the fields.
- No pets
- No Smoking
- Alcoholic beverages are prohibited
- Police the grounds after your game. Either take trash with you or place trashcans at the field
- All BSC teams are responsible to enforce these rules among their members, visitors and opponents
- No warming up on unused fields!
NOTE: For the safety of all players using our fields, it is imperative that the portable goals are assembled properly. CLICK HERE for instructions on how to set up goals.
IF THE FIELDS ARE DRY AND HARD - please do not pound on the goal feet with a hammer - they will easily break because they are made of aluminum - make a pilot hole with a net stake - pour some water into the hole - then drive the stake farther into the ground - pour more water into the hole to make the ground soft - then PUSH the goal feet into the ground.
The Muldoons Farm Schedule (above) will show take down responsibility. We have someone set up the fields for all teams each weekend. Please do not take down the fields on Saturday unless the schedule instructs you to. Keep in mind that schedule changes happen frequently during the season. Some of these changes occur on the last minute. So check as late as Friday night or Saturday morning/evening on this site and your league site in case the match before or after yours has been moved and you have field loading responsibility.
The shed at the top of the hill contains goals, nets, flags, liners, paint, trashcans and other equipment. Instructions for set-up and take down are listed below.
It is the responsibility of the last team leaving the fields to make sure that the shed is locked. All teams are responsible to clean up after themselves and leave the field in good condition for the next match. Do not expect the team after you to clean for you. Make sure your opponents put their trash away. Trash cans need to be put out on both sides of the fields with bags lining the cans. If the team before your match did not bring out the trashcans, then you should do so.
As is always the case, the use and participation on any field is a privilege. If we do our best to take care of the fields, take care of our behavior and ensure that we do not litter the fields after use, then the privilege continues. So remind your players and parents to clean up after themselves, to respect any ground rules (dogs are not allowed at many parks) and to park in appropriate places.
