Opening Soon 

 

 

 

 

Dear Football Parents:

It has been brought to my attention that folks have been parking in the Hitchcock Shoe Company parking lot a short distance from Lynch when attending Saturday games at Lynch.  Hitchcock Shoe is an operating business with store hours on Saturdays and non-customers are not authorized to park in that lot.

A Hitchcock executive has informed me that they will begin observing parkers and towing folks that are not shopping in their store.  Please make sure you park either in the Lynch lot, a legal spot on Beal Street or Sgt. Terry Drive or in the Lincoln Plaza lot.  If both Lynch and the street sports are full, it is an easy walk across Beal Street from the Lincoln plaza and there is a gate in the fence near the third base bench area.
 Thanks for your cooperation
Tom Hoffman
HYF President

Parent Updates:

 

·      Equipment:

o   I continue to strongly recommend the use of a mouth guard.  Personally, I favor the expensive ~$20.00 version, but at this age, I am confident they will lose, so please purchase a few of the ~$2.00 types.

o   Cleats.  The ground is getting a little slicker as we enter the fall.  If you do not have cleats, try to obtain an inexpensive pair. 

 

·      Weather:

o   We play rain or shine.  If there is a monsoon, I may reconsider.  But as of now, we are on. 

o   We can easily shorten games as needed.

o   I do defer to the Parent if they do not want their child to play in bad weather.   That is your choice.  

o   If there is thunder or lightening, we will suspend play for at least 20 minutes. 

o   Check website for updates.

 

·      Clock Management  

 

o   The large scoreboard clock on the field is for the parents.  It starts precisely at the schedule kickoff time and the game will end very close to when that clock expires.  The Referees have control of the clock for the last two minutes of play.

Regards,

Flag Football Week 1

Hello All,

Everyone should have received an email from me today with your team, your coaches, and your the color or your jersey.  If you did not, please contact me.

Always check the website for information.  

Kickoff are as follows:

Division 1 (K&1st grade)    1pm
Division 2  (2nd grade)        2:10pm
Division 3 (3rd grade)                3:20 pm
Division 4 (4th&5th grade)        4:30pm
Division 5 (Middle School)        5:30 pm

Games are held at Lynch Field in Hingham off Beal Street across from Stop & Shop and near the Hingham Mutual Life Building.

For the first day, if your coach has not already set a time, i would suggest at least 30 minutes prior to kickoff.

There will be an information table in the middle of the field.  Matt St. Marc, Ben Hagstrom, and Kate Shafter are your on-field coordinators.

Please be willing to help coach if needed.  Each team has at least one coach, but sometimes it is beneficial to have a few extra set of hands.

Enjoy,
