Arizona Field Marshals

Candler Field Marshal Fall Rec 2019

Thank you so much for volunteering to assist Inter Atlanta this season.  We are following up with you regarding your volunteer selection during your child's registration. We need everyone to choose at least one volunteer opening! Remember that you have opted out of your volunteer fee by agreeing to help this season.

The responsibilities for this role are limited and the time commitment is not large (only a few hours one Saturday for the season), but it will provide a great deal of value for our parents and coaches playing at Candler on Saturdays. Please select one session below.

The tasks will include:

Candler Field Marshal Duties and Guidelines:

Opening Shift

  • Head to Arizona Avenue fields and grab field signs 1-8 from the entrance of the old blue shed.
  • Place field signs on the fields shown here.
  • Greet parents, players, families, and friends at the entrance of the park. 
  • Make sure the “Park Rules” are followed (example - "No Dogs Allowed", No Alcohol, etc.)
  • Smooth transition to the afternoon Marshal.

All Marshal Shifts

  • Direct folks to correct fields
  • Monitor and enforce parking guidelines
  • Coordinate Field layout changes as necessary
  • Smooth transition to the next marshal
  • Look for suspicious activity around the parking lot and streets, especially people who don’t appear to be around to watch soccer

Closing Shift

  • Take back all field number signs (1-8) back to Arizona Avenue fields old blue shed.
  • Make sure the “Park Rules” are followed (example - "No Dogs Allowed", No Alcohol, etc.)

Situational Scripting Suggestions

  • When enforcing complex rules, always speak in a normal calm voice, utilize “please”, “thank you”, and “I’m sorry” as appropriate and smile and make eye contact. 
  • The most common rule that will require enforcement is “no pets”. In this situation, explain that the no pets rule is required for spectator and player safety and for sanitation reasons. For folks that are very stubborn on this, inferring that our insurance policy requires this rule often eliminates further resistance.
  • If a referee has ejected a parent from the complex and they are causing a scene, very nicely ask them to leave the facility, let them know that the police will be called if necessary. If at any time, you feel threatened, walk away from the individual and call 911.
  • If sideline behavior is escalating, there are “Sideline Behavior Cards” located in the shed. In a friendly manner, simply present this card to the offending parties and nicely ask them to comply with the behaviors expected.
  • If a car has been broken into – either on our property, or on an adjacent street, call 911 and request police respond.
  • As necessary, you can always ask for assistance from the following:
    • IAFC Board Members: There are often one or more board members present at various times. They will be encouraged to introduce themselves to any Field Marshals on duty, that they do not already know, when they arrive at the fields.
    • IAFC Staff:  Amy Feigl.
    • IAFC Coaches that are not actively coaching a game.
