General Information

Head Coaches will use the Practice Scheduler to select their practi
ce location, day and time based on availability.
Double Head coaches are given priority registration to be able to schedule their practices back-to-back. Practice schedules are always determined by each coach per their needs and field availability.

Practice time slots for Fall 2022 vary at each site.
This season, field sizes and practice frequency return to normal for each division as noted (check the Field Size, Duration & Freq section for more info). However this could change due to demand as availability and/or selection could be impacted.

ALSD School Fields & Blackout DaysSchool Fields are avail M-F: This season we are adding 4:30-5:30pm and 5:30-6:30pm times to go along with the traditional 5-6, 6-7pm. Choosing the 5:30-6:30pm time slot should allow for practices to continue (with sunlight) until October 15th, when many Upper Division teams seasons will end.  These fields are NOT for practices starting at 7pm or later as they do not have lights.

As is the case every season, if you practice at a school location such as Alta Loma, Carnelian or Vineyard JH, Blackout Days can and will affect your practice schedule. Be sure to check the Practice Fields & Layouts section for the latest information. The Alta Loma School District updates this information frequently so you should check back for any updates.

Note: Generally when your field has a scheduled Blackout Day, you are free to practice at the other schools on any available field. We ask that you check the Practice Scheduler Viewer to find an open field so as to not impact another team. Open fields are available First Come, First Served. We do not take reservations for single days.

School Fields & Daylight Savings Time (DST) Fall - 6-7pm Practices
* Teams that would like to practice @ 6pm will be able to do so but by the middle of September, or a little later, there will be very little sunlight available to end practices at 7:00 pm. As it gets darker earlier, you will need to adjust your start time and/or shorten your practice. Due to safety reasons, please do not have your team practice in the dark.

Red Hill Park - Mid-Week Games
The 16/19U Mid-Week Games will impact teams that practice @ Red Hill.  You'll need to review those game schedules to see if the games will have any affect on your practice days.


Check back for updates. Thank you!

Practice Field Scheduler Instructions

1) How do I get a Practice field?
Review the field offerings in the Practice Field Scheduler - Viewer
Make note of the Location, Field, Time and Days(s) that meet your needs. 


SEARCH TIPS:
 DO NOT search by Team or Coach when you are trying to schedule your Practice Field. These fields only reflect the teams or coaches that have submitted a request or have been approved.

              

For example, you could use Team to search for another Team (if you know their number) because you want to get a field close by so you can scrimmage or just help each other out.

Click here for additional tips.

IMPORTANT: Once you are done viewing the practice field setup, CLOSE the Practice Scheduler Viewer,  

Many times we get reports that ... 
"I can't login" 
"the system won't let me make a request"
"there is no “Make Request” button at the bottom of the page so I am unable to schedule my practice"
This is because you are still in the Practice Field Scheduler - Viewer and not the Practice Field Scheduler.

2) When the Practice Scheduler goes ONLINE...
Check the top of the page for the status, you will receive an email when the Scheduler has opened by the Practice Scheduler Admins.
Check here for the latest status information and updates...


3) PRACTICE SCHEDULER ONLINE  
This is it, the moment you have been waiting for... 

Login to the Practice Field Scheduler

Username: You will receive an email from the Scheduler with your username & pwd.
Password: 12345

View / Update Your User Profile, you will need to verify your User Profile and check to see that your team(s) have been linked to your account.

Note
: In some cases, you may not have been allocated to a team. Generally this is due to delays in the processing of the background checks or perhaps you signed up to volunteer at the last minute because we were in need of coaches. Because of this, some user accounts will not have their Team (ie. 10UG-03, 14UB-02, etc) linked to their profile.

Click here for steps to View or Modify your User Profile

4) SEARCH for available Practice slots

Set your selection criteria and select <View Records>.

As explained previously, DO NOT USE - Team or Coach fields.

Simple suggestion, start with a Location or a specific Time you would like. 

Set the Show field (rt side) to Open slots only

If you are a
Double Head Coach you will also select the Team for the request.

Click here for additional tips.

** WARNING **
ONCE YOU SUBMIT THE REQUEST, IT CANNOT BE CHANGED WITHOUT ASSISTANCE FROM THE PRACTICE SCHEDULER ADMIN.

When you are sure of your choice(s), click on <Check to request this>

Select <Make Request> at the bottom of the screen to complete the request.

PLEASE DO NOT MAKE MULTIPLE FIELD REQUESTS because you think you will have a better chance of getting a field.  This only makes it more difficult for us as we have to scan through all of the duplicate requests and send emails to verify which field you do want. It also makes it harder for all the other coaches to find a field.

Click here to e-mail the Practice Scheduler Admins to report a problem

5) Approvals & Notification * Updated *
We generally wait a few days to approve the requests after everyone has had a chance to select their field(s) and we have reviewed your selections. Coaches may have selected fields incorrectly, selected multiple fields or may just need to change fields, day(s) & time, etc. to accommodate parents or an Assistant Coach.

Unless you hear from us due to a conflict, you will more than likely get the field you requested. Rest assured, you will receive a confirmation email from the Scheduler when your request has been approved. Check your junk/spam folder as the emails from the Scheduler may end up there.  Make sure to unblock the email address [email protected].

While you are waiting for your approval, you can review your Practice Requests by using the Practice Scheduler Viewer Ok Coach, NOW you can use the Team list (select your team) or the Coach box (type your first or last name or partial) to look for your requests.

When you receive your Approval notification(s), please print a copy and keep with your coach folder. It also helps to keep a copy of your Practice Field Layout in the event there is any confusion.


If there are any conflicts in the schedule due to error or some other reason, we will make every effort to resolve the problem.

6) Changing fields
After you have received your approved practice request and you are out on the fields, please do not assume you can move to an open spot and stay there.  This can lead to conflicts (ie. a team may have not practiced that night). Please contact us with your change request.  We will verify the field is available and make the change in the scheduler or try to find an alternate location. 

Click here to e-mail the Practice Scheduler Admins re: a Change Request

6.A) Field Squatting 
This is the unapproved practice of reserving a practice field at a park with lights and practicing at a school location or overflow park because it is less crowded. Then returning to your reserved practice field as it gets darker. #6 can occur as a result.

Please do not do this. It is unfair to other coaches who were not able to request a field with lights. You MUST use the field you selected. If you want to practice at a school field we can change your request. Teams practicing from 6-7pm will be moved towards the end of September (for the Fall season), all others will be moved for DST. If we find a team has done this, your practice field will be reassigned.

Thank you!

Sharing the Goal - Goal Side Mon / Goal Side Wed

What does ‘(Goal Side Mon / Tue / Wed / Thur) mean? 

Applies to 12U and up (teams with 1/4 field). In those ages your practice location rotates. There are four teams on a field. Each with ¼ of the field. Think of it as two teams on the end line and two teams in the center. Goal Side Mon means that on Mon, you will be on the end line of your respective field and on Wed you will be in the center. This gives each coach one day a week to practice with the goal if they choose.

Note: If the field is divided in 1/8th's and you selected two corners (such as West N/W & S/W) you should work with the coach on the N/E & S/E corners to share the goal. That is assuming they are also a 12U+ team.


  

For example:
You select Monday-Wednesday at location Church West, Field West. On Monday you will practice in the yellow area. On Wednesday you will practice in the green area.
