New this year: In appreciation for your time commitment, head coaches will get their player fees reimbursed. (One per team). Contact your league commissioner for details and open coaching spots. Current coaches will have priority. If you are interested in coaching, use the same registration process as a player.
Coaches can reserve field time for practices as space permits. Please limit your requests to one week night and one weekend slot to allow all teams the opportunity to reserve a field. If slots are still available within 48 hours of your desired time, you may reserve an open slot even if you already have a week night and/or weekend slot.
Week night slots are (5:30 to 7:00) or (7:00 to Dark). Two teams can schedule adjacent time slots to facilitate a scrimmage if desired.
Weekend slots are in one hour blocks and reservations are limited to two hours.

What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest?
A Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating, cutting off blood flow to the brain and other vital organs. Sudden cardiac arrest is fatal if not treated immediately, most often by a defibrillator.
Who is Lindsay?
Senate Bill 252 is named for national heart health advocate and former Miss Ohio Lindsay Davis who suffers from a heart condition and has since dedicated her career to raising awareness of this potentially fatal condition.
"Sudden cardiac arrest is the number one killer of student athletes," said Davis. "At any moment I could have died because coaches and teachers had no idea this was even a possibility for someone who looked as healthy as I did at that age."
Lindsay’s Law, Ohio Revised Code 3313.5310, 3707.58 and 3707.59 went into effect in 2017.
In accordance with this law, the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the Ohio Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and other stakeholders jointly developed guidelines and other relevant materials to inform and educate students and youth athletes participating in or desiring to participate in an athletic activity, their parents, and their coaches about the nature and warning signs of sudden cardiac arrest.
The following resources were developed to implement Lindsay’s Law:
