This was a big hit last year, the players especially enjoyed playing in a positive environment. If you have questions, please reach out to LRA.

International Walk On

For all NorCal NPL games, the game must start with an International Walk On. Leagues, and possibly LRA, are fined for NPL games that do not start off with this activity. This is an easy activity to do 5-10 minutes BEFORE game start. Confirm with the coaches well before so they are prepared. If the both coaches decide they don't want to do the walk on, that is fine.

For the basic steps of an International Walk On, click here.
