Use, Movement and Care of Soccer Goals
Every year, players are injured by falling goals and there are well document fatalities.
PLEASE do your part to make sure goals are secured and properly used
Our youth soccer programs invest thousands of dollars every year to maintain these goals.
Your help is greatly appreciated to ensure they are properly secured and utilized. All U12 and U14 goals MUST be secured with two sandbags at ALL times (these are the 7' high goals).
Sandbags should only be removed to relocate a goal. They must always be replaced once a goal is moved.
An adult should always supervise moving a goal. Goals should never be dragged. Wheels should be in the down position. Wheels must be up at all other times. U12 goals without wheels should be carried.
Sand bags should be removed to move the goal and replaced once it is relocated. Please do not drop sand bags. They cannot withstand the force of being dropped.

Trash Policy
All parks are a Carry-In/Carry-Out trash policy for any items that will not fit into the Big Belly. All City bubblers have been shut off. Participants will need to provide their own water It is the responsibility of the field permit holder to check the fields operation link on our web page to see if fields are playable http://www.newtonma.gov/gov/parks/maintenance/conditions.as a copy this link and past it into your browser the bookmark so you have easy access to the fields page.
