Friendly reminders for the day:

COVID:

  • Coaches can choose to have their athletes masked or unmasked during their clinics. You will give your athletes this instruction at the beginning of your clinic. 
  • All athletes have to wear masks 24/7 at the facility unless if their coach says they can take off masks during training during your clinic. 

Travel:

  • If you filled out the form that you need a hotel room, we reserved those for you under your name with the front desk. 
  • If you are flying in and not renting a car:
    • We will comp your uber/lyft to/from the Hilton to Newark. Just let us know via email after the event how much that is with your venmo handle or address, and we will venmo or mail a check. 
    • We can also drive you form the Hilton to the sports dome and back, just communicate that with Tori. 

WhatsApp Coach Group:

The Day:

  • Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your first clinic so we can show you the space, give you your paperwork, you can set up your clinic, grab a snack, etc. 
    • Keep in mind that NJ traffic!
  • Staff and coaches have the full private upstairs lounge space.
  •  Tourney:
    • Tourney is from 3:30-7, all coaches will be assigned 2 teams to coach.  Feel free to swap teams with another coach if you want to work with a specific athlete(s).
    • We will print out all the lists for you so you can watch the athletes and know where they are playing. 
    • Coaches are required/asked to stay and watch the games through 7pm. This is because parents and athletes notice when coaches leave early - this was really the only complaint we received from families all summer.  The only way we ask that coaches leave early is if this was coordinated in advance (and of course last minute emergencies). 
  • Your clinic - clinics are 55 minutes long:
    • Quick COVID note - we are requiring athletes to wear their masks all day, HOWEVER you can choose to have them take their masks off for your clinic. 
    • Since this is indoors on field turf, we suggest having your drills be more technical themed than a lot of hitting/shooting drills to avoid injuries.  
    • We will print out the list of athletes for your for each of your clinics with their info and jersey number.
    • We suggest designing your clinic around 45 minutes so that you have time for field clean-up. Athletes LOVE it when you have time to introduce yourself, the program, and talk about the program and answer questions. We encourage you to invite them on campus or to your on-campus camp/clinic (whatever is compliant of course!)
    • 00: Clinic start on the hour.
    • 55: All athletes have to be OFF on the 55 of the hour so that the next coach can set up their field.
    • 50: We suggest around the 50 of the hour you start doing field cleanup and goodbyes. 
    • LineUP staff does not do attendance for the individual clinics, therefore, at the beginning of the clinics you can choose to do attendance if you like so you know who didn't make it (and maybe an athlete is there by accident or sneaking in). 
    • If you have a morning clinic (especially a 8am or 9am clinic) there is a good chance the athletes did not warm up on their own. We do tell them to do plyos and stretch before their first clinic, but if you have a morning clinic, we suggesting spending the first 5 minutes doing a hockey warmup.
    • We always have a handful of no-shows and last minute cancels, so don't plan your clinic around that exact amount of field players/gks. 
  • If you have multiple sold-out clinics we STRONGLY suggest you bring a helper.
    • This does not have to be one of your staff, it could be a local athlete or coach you know.
    • If you want to pay them out of your lineup pay, please tell Tori at least a week inadvance so we can edit your check and write up a new check for them.  We print checks out a few days before the event. Your helper/assistant is welcome to eat the staff/coach food and hang in the staff/coach room. 
  • Every mini field is 1/6 of a full-size hockey pitch (90 feet x 90 feet)
    • Every mini field has 1 cage and 70+ balls, cones and flat cones.
    • If you have any specialized gear you need to run your clinic, please bring that.
  • BRING:
    • Whistle, stick, white board, white board pen, watch, or anything else you might need to run your clinics.
    • We will have a couple extra sticks for coaches flying in.
    • Extra sweatshirt/jacket in case inside the facility is chilly. 
  • Coaches get paid $300 for watching/coaching the tourney plus $30/athlete ($15/athlete in combined clinics). You will receive your check at 7pm. If you want your name change or check adjusted please tell Tori a week in advance since we are printing out the checks in advance. 

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Clinic Schedule for March 26 

Image
LineUP Timetable for Coaches:


--February 6-12: Phase I opens; athletes can register for their top 3 clinics
--Mid February: We will add around 30 more athletes from the waitlist (we have 231 athletes registered as of Feb 1)
***Mid/end of February: LineUP will email college coaches with the list of athletes registered for the event, along with their email. 
--February 27: Phase II opens, all athletes can register for any additional clinics 
***March 3rd: LineUP will email college coaches individually with the list of athletes registered for their college clinic.  Any athletes who you want to participate in your clinic who have not signed up yet, this is the last week they can do so.
--March 10: Last day for athletes to register for clinics
***Mid March: LineUP will send you the final list of all athletes participating in March 26th LineUP, plus your final list of all athletes registered for your college clinics. 

  • How our clinic schedule is made: This schedule will be based off two factors: 1) How many athletes listed the college clinic in their top 3 when they registered for their Entry Fee  &...  2) Number of registrants for clinics in past LineUPs.  
  • We understand emergencies, illness & job changes happen, but please make sure another coach from your program can rep your program if you cannot make March 26. Unlike any other camp or clinic, with LineUP, athletes who select your clinic have planned their schedule around it, and it would be incredibly difficult to change, and would reflect poorly on your program.  Thank you in advance for considering this!
