Picture Day

Picture Day

Picture day for the 2014 Fall Season will be September 27, 2014.

All photos will be taken at Harvard Community Park on soccer field D (the isolated soccer field at the corner of Walnut and Harvard).

The photo day schedule will be posted closer to the actual date.  Please check the schedule on Friday evening to be sure your team's schedule has not been changed.

Important - Volunteers Needed

My name is Kathy Burkett and I am the 2014 Picture Day coordinator for AYSO Region 213.  

I am scheduling volunteers for two-hour shifts. The 8:00 am to 10:00 am volunteer slot is fully booked. I need help with 10:00 am to noon, noon to 2:00 pm (includes a 30 minute break for lunch-lunch not provided) or 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
 
Information on picture day volunteering:
- Please take into account your child's scheduled game that day when selecting a shift as we don't want you to miss their game.
- We are asking volunteers to show up 10 minutes before their shift to get instructions related to their specific position.  (Just look for me, I will be in a red shirt (AYSO grey sweatshirt in the morning) and wearing an AYSO cap)
- Please leave extra time for finding a parking spot as the park gets very busy on picture day.
- We are asking all volunteers to wear red shirts, if possible, so they are easily noticeable by the coaches and other volunteers.
Please provide me with your cell phone number in your reply.
- I will be providing donuts in the morning and cold water throughout the day for all volunteers.
 
Please let me know if you are able to help on Picture Day and which shift you would prefer.
 
Remember AYSO is run by parent volunteers and every family is required to donate their time towards AYSO, this is a fun and easy way to volunteer.  Let's help our kids have a smooth and quick picture day experience.

Thanks in advance for your assistance and I look forward to working with you on the 27th.

Common Sense Advice

Here is some common sense advice and recommendations to make your photo day experience great:

  • Please do not walk on the soccer field. You will be in the background of someone's picture! Stay on the sidewalks and walk around the field.
  • Parking is going to be issue. Please allow yourself additional time to park near the community center and to walk across the park to soccer field D (near the corner of Walnut and Harvard).
  • No dogs or other pets please.
  • Make sure the entire team is there and ready to go about 10-15 minutes before your scheduled time since sometimes they are running ahead of schedule.
  • No vinyl banners - the photographers will not allow you to have a vinyl banner in the team picture.
  • The envelopes need to be completed before your child shows up. As a recommendation, have the team manager collect all of the envelopes a few days before photo day (at a practice). Then, the team manager brings all of the envelopes and distributes them to the players immediately before they enter the picture taking area. Some extra envelopes will be available at the check-in table. We recommend sending the team manager to the check-in table to get additional envelopes rather than each parent.
  • Parents and others are reminded: do not take pictures while the photographers are taking pictures.
  • Only players and the coaches are allowed in the picture taking area. Parents are not allowed in the picture taking area.
