Each team is responsible for lining the assigned field on the date provided in the sign-up. Team Parents are asked to recruit parent volunteers for the field they are expected to line on their assigned weeks.
This is a very important position, as we must have our fields properly painted in order to host our home games. To learn how to properly line the fields, volunteers should watch this short video.
Fields need to be lined by Thursday or Friday so they are fresh for weekend home games. If you can line the fields earlier in the week because that works better with your schedule, go for it! Please only line the middle school fields after school hours.
This is a team effort. Parents are needed to line the fields at Middletown Community Park (MCP), Charles Boehm MS and Pennsbury HS. Except for PHS, paint stripers and supplies are provided and located at fields. An email with combo codes will be sent in advance to those that have signed up to line the fields.
Time commitment: 30-40min
Initial lining: Completed the last week in March
Line maintenance: Weekly re-trace the existing set of lines.
Once finished each week, please return or store/lock-up the remaining paint and field liner to the designated location and inspect the field for debris or hazards.
