STADIUM INSTRUCTIONS FOR VISITING TEAM

As an Athletic Director, I really like to be able to prepare the road team who is coming to our site for a game.  I think that it is crucial to be a great host.  I send out this document to the Athletic Director and the Head Football Coach of who we are going to play on Tuesday of the week before the game.  I think one reason I put this together is because nobody really ever does it for us when we travel!  Again, I want to help the opponents coming to play with all of these aspects.

You can cut and paste this in to a new word document to create your own Stadium Instructions For Visiting Team.

HOME FOOTBALL STADIUM PROCEDURES

SITE

San Clemente High School, 700 Avenida Pico, San Clemente, CA 92673

DIRECTIONS

From Interstate 5, head east at the Avenida Pico exit about ¼ of a mile.  The school is on the south, or right hand side of the road.  Enter at the first driveway.

ADMISSION FOR VISITING FANS

There is one entrance for all fans.  It will be impossible to miss on the way to the stadium for your fans.  Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students with an ID card and children under 5 are free.  CIF and Academy League courtesy passes will be honored.

 FIELD ACCESS

Access to the field will be restricted to those essential with the game management of your team – photographers, statisticians, doctors/trainers, water helpers, administration, etc.  San Clemente H.S. has asked us to keep the number of people on their field limited.

 FIELD PASS LIST

Please email Athletic Director Chris Fore at cfore@cvcs.org with your Field Pass List prior 12:00 noon on the day before the game.  San Clemente H.S. has asked that we limit the number of people on your sidelines to those essential to the game management of your team – photographers, statisticians, doctors/trainers, water helpers, administration, etc.  There is one way on/off the field.  People will not be allowed access to the field unless their name is on the Field Pass List.

*** Only water is allowed on the field.  No sport drinks of any kind.  No food, soda, sunflower seeds, gum, etc.  

 

I was lucky enough to play in the best stadium in Southern California while at Capistrano Valley Christian from 2006-2011. We rented out their stadium for our games.

 

HALF TIME

At your request, the visiting locker room will be open at halftime by a San Clemente staffer.  It will be locked and closed following halftime.

 ICE

Visiting teams will be responsible for bringing their own ice to the game.

LOCKER ROOM

The visiting team locker room is in the Women’s Varsity Locker Room.  It is located right next to the main parking lot just past the gym on the right hand side.  Your bus can drop your team off within 20 yards of the locker room.  There are restrooms and showers available in this locker room.  It will be locked and unlocked by a San Clemente staffer.  Your staff is responsible for all supervision in the locker room.

The locker room is about a 4-7 minute walk from the field.

 

SAFETY/SECURITY OF YOUR POSSESSIONS IN LOCKER ROOM

The locker room will be locked once you leave it by San Clemente Staff.

Unfortunately, since this is NOT our property, we cannot adequately secure your player’s  personal property.  This is a multi-use facility. The athletes at San Clemente H.S. may need to access to their own locker rooms during the game.

We have had items gone missing from our own home locker room when our kids have not secured them.  Feel free to bring your personal belonging to the sidelines with you if you feel that is best for your team.

 PRE-GAME WARM UP

The visiting team is to warm up on the west end of the field.  This is the end nearest to the scoreboard.

PRE-GAME PRAYER/NATIONAL ANTHEM

At approximately 5 minutes before kickoff, we invite you to join us for a word of prayer and the singing of the National Anthem followed by an introduction of the game captains for the coin toss.

SAN CLEMENTE HIGH SCHOOL STAFF

There is one full time custodian on site for our games.  He will be opening and securing your locker room.  (James is usually the one that works our games.)

SIDELINES

The visiting sidelines are on the south side of the field.  This is the side furthest from you as you enter the stadium.

WATER

Visiting teams will have access to hose water at the snack bar.  We use this water and have never had a problem with it.  The nozzle is located on the north side of the snack bar next to the field.  We will have a staff member with a water key to turn the water on for your staff.

*** Only water is allowed on the field.  No sport drinks of any kind.  No food, soda, sunflower seeds, gum, etc.
