League Philosophy

The objective of youth soccer should be for the players to have fun. Coaches and parents should teach good sportsmanship, self-reliance, and teamwork. The emphasis should not be on winning, but on team participation and self-improvement in skills, coordination, and strategy.

The goal of every youth soccer coach should be to provide every player with opportunities to reach his maximum potential in the game of soccer. Coaches must balance fun and discipline according to the ages and ability levels of their players. Coaches should evaluate players’ strengths and weaknesses in such areas as size, speed, physical strength, endurance, coordination, ball control, and tactical abilities-the ability to read and understand the game of soccer.

The league places the game of soccer ahead of any desire to win, regardless of level of play. If any administrator or coach, no mater how capable, fails to control his, or has players who consistently contravene the laws of soccer, the League will act to remedy the situation. Disciplinary action may include the suspension or expulsion of either the coach, the player, or the team. Such discipline should only come when absolutely necessary and only after the other avenues for remedial action have been exhausted.

Silent Saturday

This has been tried in this league and other leagues and it was noted that the kids loved it and so did the Ref’s.

On “ SILENT SATURDAY “the coaches and parents should be silent on the side lines. Sometimes as a coach and as a parent we can become over enthusiastic and yell out constant instructions like, “Pass, Shoot, Clear the ball, Center”. With the sidelines being quiet, this will let the kids make their own decisions on the field, and they will be able to talk to each other. The children will decide who will take the corner kick, goal kick, or throw in. The children will be able to hear each other talk on the field with comments like “Pass, Center, Go wide.”

So, lets sit back, suck on a lollipop, save our vocal chords, and enjoy the game.
