Coach's Game Day Requirements


Opposing Coach Courtesy Call--Home Coach's Responsibility
If you are coaching at home in Topsfield, it is your responsibility to call your opposing coach on the Thursday before the weekend's game. Any relevant information should be discussed.  
ECYSA Score Reporting--Home Coach's Responsibility
Reporting Scores to the ECYSA is the Home Head Coach's responsibility. You will have 48 hours after any home game is played to fill out the score on the ECYSA website-to avoid fines, please do this the day the game is played. If a game is not played as scheduled, it is still the home coach’s responsibility to list the game as not played on the website. 


CORI Compliance
Any coaches new to Topsfield Youth Soccer need to complete a CORI background check form.  This includes any coach who might have filled out a CORI on the Mass Youth Soccer website recently. Please contact Steve Russo - for more information.
