Field 6, 7 and 10 may be available to EYL coaches for practice, whenever there is no EYL game scheduled.  Contact for a copy of the UC field permit.
  • To Report all injuries to the Safety Officer and Insurance Coordinator.
    All injuries and/or accidents during games or practices must be reported to the Safety Officer (Mark Weis 908 337-6105) within 48 hours.  Injuries, which may seem minor at the time, may develop into something major.  Play it safe and report the injury.  See page 3 for details.
