Welcome to "The Field Guy"
In a new Commish feature from the National Development Commission, we’d like to introduce…The Field Guy. The Field Guy will offer periodic tips, tools and templates on how to make more of the soccer field space you have, how to develop local community relationships to expand your field space and how to develop new field space from scratch. It will also be an opportunity for AYSO folks to exchange their experiences, best practices and great ideas!
The first shout out from The Field Guy is a request for samples of any Field Use Agreements your Region, Area, Section - or you personally - have used. The Field Guy would like to establish a library of sample agreements on AYSO.org that lets everybody avoid reinventing the wheel.
If your local AYSO has a Field Use Agreement, feel free to edit out any information you consider personal or proprietary (and we will include language advising everyone that these are samples only and must be reviewed for local appropriateness and by legal counsel if they’re actually going to be used). This would let everyone learn how to help more kids play more AYSO soccer by expanding the number and availability of soccer fields.
Send your sample Field Use Agreements to TheFieldGuy@ayso.org. Thanks for sharing and we’ll be back in touch through The Commish.
