Nets, Goals & Corner Flags (updated March 17, 2011)

Depending on which field your team will be using, you may need to set up goals and/or nets.

Mayfield: The goals and nets are always up so you don't need to set anything up. You cannot use standard stick-in-the-ground corner flags, instead you get the weighted stand corner flags from the shed by the picnic tables. The door has a combination lock on it. You can find the combination on the "members only" page of this site. You MUST return the corner flags AND lock the door after your game. If the flags continue to get left out (and thereby disappear) then the city will cease to provide them. If a team is playing right after you and they will be using the flags, make sure you connect with their manager to make sure he/she knows they are now responsile for the flags, and that you know who they are so that you can answer that question later if the flags go missing.

Greer & JLS: You will need to unlock and move the goals and AND return the goals after the game. The location of the Goals, Net lockboxes, and Flag lockboxes for each individual field along with combinations are found on the "Members Only" page the SSC website. At Greer fields, the top and sides of the nets are 'permanently tied down' while the bottom and rear of nets have loose tie ropes for attachment before the game and unattachment after the game; this is done to avoid damage to the nets while in storage. Beginning Spring of 2011 corner flags will be stored in a lock box adjacent to the net box or in the net box (if using collapsible flags). After your game, be sure to replace the flags in the lockbox and return and lock the goals where you found them - spinning the lock dial. If another Stanford Club team has a game immediately after yours, check with the manager of the next team and make sure that they understand that it is now their responsibility to replace the flags/goals. Do not assume that another team will be playing after you even if it is on the schedule since games can get cancelled. Remember the name of the team you passed the responsibility to in case you are asked later. NOTE: Failure to lock goals to a designated place (usually a nearby fence) can result in penalty fee; see 'Policy for Goal Lockup' for details.

Seale : The smaller goals have their own permanently attached nets. Unlock the goals and set them in position. The combination can be found on the "members only" page of this site. Check if the Corner flags are in a separate lockbox adjacent to the net box or if you need to bring your own corner flags. After your game be sure to replace the goals and relock them. If another Stanford Club team has a game immediately after yours, check with the manager of the next team and make sure that they understand that it is now their responsibility to replace the flags/goals. Do not assume that another team will be playing after you even if it is on the schedule since games can get cancelled. Remember the name of the team you passed the responsibility to in case you are asked later.
