Memo on Playing Time

To all Parents and Coaches of Medway Travel Teams:

At the beginning of the new season, we would like to take a moment to re-state the policy concerning playing time in the Travel program.

Article 2, section 33 of the Rules and Regulations of Medway Youth Soccer Association states, in part, that "Travel Coaches shall endeavor to have each player receive a significant share of playing time throughout the season".

Although the rule intentionally leaves definition of "significant" open to interpretation, it is the intent of the Medway Youth Soccer program to provide all children substantially equal playing time in every game. Depending upon the number of players available for a given game, every player should play at least 40% of the available time.

If you have any questions regarding this or any other travel issue, please feel free to contact either of us.

Good Luck to all Travel players, parents and coaches for a successful season!
