Goal Safety Policy

Copley-Fairlawn Athletic Association

Recreational Soccer

It is the intention of the Trustee’s of the Copley Fairlawn Athletic Association that goal safety be a priority. Therefore, the following policy is adopted.

1.      The Copley Fairlawn Athletic Association will require for all programs and every activity:

a.      The coaches for each game or other responsible person will make a physical inspection of each goal prior to the game/activity to assure that goals are securely anchored in accordance with CPSC guidelines.

b.      The coaches for the last game of the day will make sure the goals are safely stored in accordance with the CPSC guidelines.

c.      That all parents and guardians are told of the dangers of unsecured goals and the parents’ responsibility to keep kids away from goals, and to secure goals if necessary.

d.       Copley Fairlawn Athletic Association Soccer Trustee’s will conduct random site surveys.

2.      To reach this end, all coaches will receive a copy of the CPSC guidelines, and clear instructions as to how to make goals safe and secure.

3.      Coaches will remind their players, and discuss with the team’s parents, the necessity of players and siblings not playing, climbing or moving the goals. It is deemed appropriate that players violating this rule may, at the coaches’ discretion, sit out a half game or entire game. Players consistently violating the rule can be subject to a disciplinary hearing of the Board.

4.      For non club/league owned fields and/or goals, it is important to remind the owners of the fields and/or goals of safety requirements. This is in addition to the checking of goals as listed above.

5.      The President will have random site surveys done to certify compliance with this policy.

6.      The President will certify to OYSAN no later than November 1 of each year that a policy is in place and enforced.
