    You will be working with Board and May Day Committee members the week prior to the tournament to prepare Gavin Park. This includes attaching signage to fences and goals, moving picnic tables from the pavilion to the appropriate place, placing garbage and recycling cans throughout the grounds, and any other general set-up jobs as determined by the May Day Committee.

    A strong backbone and thick skin are required for this position. You will be screening people for admittance to the back parking lot.

    This position is quite possibly the most important, yet easiest job of the tournament. As Field Marshall, you will:

    Hold the game cards.

    • You have refs on the field, ready to ref the game.
    • There is a game ball of the correct size, preferably two, on the field.

    After the game:
    • Ensure the ref and coaches verify the score and sign the game card.
    • Call in the score (detailed instructions will be provided to you).

    If there is any problem on the field, you will be provided a list of phone numbers of May Day Committee members and the Tournament Director who can resolve your issue.

  • Maintenance Staff
