Policy & Guidelines

 

The Hollis/Brookline Cavalier Soccer Club (HBCSC) was formed to support the expansion of competitive youth soccer in the Hollis/Brookline, New Hampshire area by providing the opportunity for players to work with experienced coaches for the purpose of expanding their knowledge and enjoyment of the game of soccer. The HBCSC provides quality coaching. The commitment to the general philosophy of good sportsmanship is measured by a willingness of coaches, players, and parents to commit to the HBCSC code of conduct which articulates how all members, as defined in the HBCSC bylaws, are to conduct themselves.

 

The HBCSC is committed to working with the Recreation Committees within the town of Hollis and Brookline to ensure that the function and format of the HBCSC compliments the general sports program in the community.

Code of Conduct

Hollis/Brookline Club players, parents and coaches agree to respect and exhibit good sportsmanship toward teammates, game officials, opposing players, coaches and parents at all times. Players, parents and coaches agree to honor the commitment to represent their team, the club and the sport with respect. Poor sportsmanship and behavior detrimental to the club and/or team are grounds for dismissal from HBYSC teams, HBYSC sidelines and HBYSC practices. Players, parents and coaches understand that behavior and conduct during travel, tournaments, training, and at hotels, banquets, team meals, etc. are all considered part of team activity and accept responsibility for actions during those times. Alcohol, illegal drugs and unauthorized prescription drugs shall not be possessed, consumed or distributed before, during or after any game or at any other time at the field or game complex.​​

Severe weather guidelines

  1. If it is raining, training sessions and games are NOT cancelled. However, if there is standing water on the field (typically due to excessive rain over a period of days) or the threat of severe weather, cancellation or postponement is likely.

  2. Team Managers will contact parents by 3:00pm on training days if practice is canceled. Parents should regularly check the club website and their email if weather is questionable. Please call your Team Manager or Coach FIRST if you are uncertain, or weather conditions degrade just prior to practice time.

  3. In the event of thunder and lightning, HB Cav coaches will immediately clear players from the fields and seek shelter. If a shelter is not nearby, then players will be moved to the safety of cars. Coaches will wait 30 minutes after the last thunder or lightning before resuming training.  

Parents: If the weather degrades severely during a training session, please make arrangements to pick up your player as soon as possible.

 

Clothing recommendation: wear dri-fit training tops, fleece, or breathable rain gear, not classic rain slickers which get very hot as they do not breathe. Please note for games, rain and cold weather gear must fit under the player's uniform.
