Per the Canton Fire Marshall we will be suspending all games at 11:30 am until further notice. All players, coaches and parents must clear the fields. No one is allowed to stay in pop-up tents. You can either go to the ICC main building or tent. We will update you later when we receive comunication from Fire Marshall.
All clubs must leave linesman and umpires for all games even if there is a gap in the schedule. You must check in with the field marshall prior to departing the field to confirm your people for the next game. All teams are liable and will be fined $500 if they do not return. Thank you
We are asking for all clubs to be clean up their tents. Many clubs are leaving trash on the ground, tables, etc and not cleaning their areas. If you need trash bags see a field marshall or Boston CYC Volunteer. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
There will be an admission fee on both Friday and Saturday of $10 per adult, children under the age of 18 will not be charged. This fee will help offset some of the overhead charges we have incurred in producing this event. Thank you for your support.
