CWUAA Ball Girl Procedures

Getting Started

Please gather at the front entrance ofFoote Field(11601 - 68 Avenue Edmonton, Alberta T6G 2E1. Tel: 780-492-6868) a minimum of 30 minutes before kick off time (ex. 4:30 for a 5pm match, 11:30 for a noon match). Wear your team gear (everyone in jerseys or training kit or tracksuits to look sharp). There will be a Pandas Greet Team (PGT) waiting for you and they will brief your team on the procedures below.

Pre-Game

35 minutes before the game, the Pandas begin their warm-up. By 25-30 minutes pre-game, the keepers will start their warm-ups. The girls should split themselves evenlybehind both nets and “shag”(get the balls) balls for the keepers. This will give them a chance to watch the warm-up and practice getting the balls for the game. The Pandas will return to the locker room 15 minutes prior to kickoff and your team should re-assemble at the SOUTH doors by the main entrance to be ready to jog on the field with Pandas for about 10 minutes before the game.

First Half

Get involved!Please space yourselves equally around the field and behind the goals so you are to catch the balls quickly if they can and hand it to the player for the throw-in or goal kick. If the ball gets past you, please replace ball at the centre flag, or behind the net as required.

Half-time

Turf Time!We welcome you to have a mini-game on the Pandas Soccer Pitch. The Coach of Ball girls Team can organize a mini 15-minute game during half time on the South end of the field (please ensure you bring the equipment you need - balls, pinnie, cones, pug nets).

Second Half

Get involved!Please space yourselves equally around the field and behind the goals so you are to catch the balls quickly if they can and hand it to the player for the throw-in or goal kick. If the ball gets past you, please replace ball at the centre flag, or behind the net as required. At the end of the game, please return the 5 game balls to the table at centre.

Post-Game

Join the team in the locker room for an autograph signing!

The team will debrief the game with a post-game talk (about 10 minutes) and we’d love for you to come into the dressing room be able to see the players and ask questions. Feel free to bring anything you’d like signed (as well as a pen!).
