Field Rules:

In order to accommodate your needs, AYSO philosophy, the Township’s Park regulations and our neighbors needs and concerns, the following rules need to be enforced by all who use Lightfoot Fields:
  • Observe all posted speed limits. The maximum speed on Beach Road, north of Atkins is 25 mph. In the park, the maximum speed limit is 5 mph. This is for the children’s safety and your own. Please drive carefully.
  • No alcohol, tobacco products, e-cigarettes, vapor cigarettes or illegal substances are allowed. Anyone found bringing these items onto our field will be asked to leave immediately.
  • No glass bottles/containers are permitted.
  • No motor vehicles beyond the parking lot, except for emergencies, field maintenance or other AYSO business purposes.
  • Bicycles, skateboards or scooters are not permitted beyond the parking lot. Lock unattended bikes near the field entry.
  • Do not hang or play on the soccer goals. Goals can tip over causing serious injury and even death.
  • For sanitary as well as safety reasons, NO PETS are allowed at the fields, including those held in your arms. Working companion dogs excluded.
  • Please dispose of trash and refuse responsibly in the drums provided. If the drums are full please use the dumpster near the parking lot.
  • HANDICAPPED PARKING is reserved for our VIP Players and those individuals with handicapped parking stickers. Others will be towed at owner expense.

Field Markings

A soccer field is typically called a pitch. Please note that the lines at the side and the end of the field each have their own name. This is important to understand when reading the rules, or Laws of the Game

How Many Fields are there at Lightfoot?

• AYSO sets up approximately 15 soccer fields each season to accommodate U4-U19 games.
• The size of the field is determined by the age division requirements. The smaller fields generally do not have all of the markings that are on a full size soccer field. 

The markings on each field have to be re-painted every week during the soccer season. The grass grows and gets cut and the paint fades over time—and that’s why we ask each team to supply at least one Line Painting volunteer. In a 100% volunteer organization, there is no single person who wants to paint 15 fields every week—and so we ask for your help. Volunteers are given dates to choose from and when they arrive on their assigned date, they are shown what to do—and assigned a field or two. This is a one-time 30-60 minute—FUN task.
