Rules and Regulations for Jamboree Games:

  • All games must begin at the scheduled times to avoid conflicts for D2 Jamboree games scheduled after the D1 Jamboree games that day at Gary Park.  All players must arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the Jamboree.
  • Games will be 20 minutes long -- running time and no halftime.  Coaches will substitute in/rotate in fresh players to allow playing time for all.
  • There will be about a 10 minute break between each game.
  • Scores will not be kept for D1 as during the season. The focus of the Jamboree is to continue to teach the kids the most basic rules of soccer, get the kids as many touches on the ball as possible, and to have fun!

 
Thank you for making the spring season a great success.  I look forward to ending the season with an event that has been very well received by players, families, and coaches in the past.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
 
Sincerely,

Joe Lawruszko
SSA In-House Director
