Team Representatives

Team Representatives

Team Reps are a crucial aspect of PTSL and an integral part of the soccer experience. Team Reps are the liaison between their team and the Collective, facilitate league communication and provide a positive soccer experience for all league members. Team representatives are bound by a team representative code of conduct and are expected to meet these responsibilities.

In February and March of every year, PTSL actively recruits team representatives to help us in our upcoming season. A solid knowledge of the rules of soccer, at least one year experience as a member of Pink Turf, and a spirit of fun first, winning second are all key to being one of our team reps. If you are interested in helping us as a team representative, please check our volunteer opportunities page and email info@pinkturfsoccer.com. Below are the team representatives for the season. If you are having difficulty contacting your team represenatative, please email info@pinkturfsoccer.com and we will make sure to connect you.

Team Rep Responsibilities

Your Team Rep is the official point of contact for the team and should be approached with any and all concerns regarding games or functioning of the league. If, for some reason, a player cannot speak to her own Team Rep, she should approach a member of Collective or provide us with anonymous feedback form.

Team Representatives are expected to perform the following duties:

  1. Attend meetings with the Collective on an as-needed basis
  2. Assist the league with distributing jerseys to team players
  3. Liaise between Collective and Team members
  4. Communicate League messages to Team members
  5. Send weekly emails to teams to encourage participation and collect attendance
  6. Fill out a Game Sheet at every game and leave it in the equipment bag
  7. Take down, store, and Set-up nets and equipment on predesignated weeks (usually 2 per season)
  8. Assign a team member to perform these duties in her absence
  9. Provide leadership to the team and assist new players with learning the rules of soccer
  10. Provide directly or provide connection with another individual to support skill development when needed
  11. Encourage team building and socializing with teams after games
  12. Attend and/or promote fundraising and social events. Please encourage everyone in the league – not just your own teammates – to participate in League events and activities. The more people that come out, the
  13. more fun it is for everyone.
  14. Ensure equitable playing time, fair play, and help make all team members feel welcome on your team and in the League.
  15. Work with the Membership Coordinator to deal with attendance issues and get additional / replacement players for your team from the Waiting List if necessary.
  16. Help support and enforce any sanctions placed on individual members delivered by the Referee or the Collective (via the Arbitration‐committee).

The above list of duties and responsibilities undertaken by Team Representatives is not exhaustive. Since PTSL’s objective is to provide the best possible experience to Members, amendments may be made during the season.

If you have found a Team Representative to be in breach of this or any of the league’s codes of conduct, including the code of conduct for team representatives please write toinfo@pinkturfsoccer.com. Your concern will be considered immediately by our Arbitration Committee. If you wish to remain anonymous, please fill out an anonymous feedback form and leave it in the PTSL equipment bag at the field on game day.

Team Rep Zone

The Pink Turf Soccer League would like to thank you for your leadership and being such an important part of building the community that our league offers. We would like to make your job as easy as possible, so we’ve created a few pages to provide some tips and advice for handling some of your responsibilities this season. If you have any questions or concerns about your role, please do not hesitate to contact any member of the Collective and/or emailing us at info@pinkturfsoccer.com.

Attendance: 
Team Reps are asked to keep attendance for their teams to help us monitor member adherance to the Attendance Policy.

Game sheet
Team Reps fill out a game sheet after every game and leave them in a folder in the equipment bag. The game sheet helps the Collective keep track of attendance, undeclared absences, scores, and agression (red cards & yellow cards). It is important that you fill out the sheet accurately every week.

Download a blank Game Sheet template.

Tips for filling out the game sheet:

– Information about YOUR team goes on on the left side, and information about your opponent goes on the right side.

– Please circle the winning team and their score.

– Please make sure to indicate with a “Yes” or a “Y” when a team member has been away that they “declared” their absence. When they did not declare an absence, please indicate with the word “NO” to clearly indicate an undeclared absence. Please do not use a “check mark” or “x” in this column because it can be ambiguous for us to understand.

– If a player is absent because of an injury, please “check” the cell “Injury” in the row for that player

– Indicate the goal scorers with the number of goals in the row with the appropriate player’s name

– When a player received a yellow or red card please “check” the cell or indicate the number (if multiple cards were given) and then indicate the reason for the card(s)

– Make sure to have your opponent team rep sign the game sheet

– Make sure to have the referee sign the game sheet

– Lastly, make sure to include the game sheet in the equipment bag at the end of the game, before you leave the field

Thank you!!
