COACH RESPONSIBILITIES

Coaches are expected to be role models who project the spirit of the sport on and off the field. They are responsible for fairly applying the League’s policies. No coach shall use profanity or make derogatory remarks or gestures to a referee, parent official, player, parent, or spectator. A coach may never strike, shake, push, or otherwise physically assault a player. A coach has the responsibility to ensure that all players receive at least their minimum earned playing time during games. Follow the Coaches Code:

  • Enthusiastically support and practice “everyone plays/50% playing time” policies and positive coaching philosophies.

  • Be reasonable in your demands on the young players’ time, energy, enthusiasm and their performance on the soccer field.

  • Inform your players that they must abide by the rules of the game at all times.

  • Develop team respect for the ability of opponents, and for the judgment of referees and opposing coaches.

  • Ensure that your players’ soccer experience is one of fun and enjoyment (winning is only part of it). Players should never be yelled at or ridiculed for any reason.

  • Set a good example and be generous with your praise when it is deserved. Children need a coach they can respect.

  • Do not publicly question referees judgment and never their honesty.

  • Keep informed about “sound principles of coaching”; and “growth and development” principles relating to children.

  • Enlist the support of your team’s parents in your efforts to instill the proper attitudes and values in the players. Coaches are responsible for the conduct of their sideline.

  • Check equipment that you use. It should meet safety standards and be appropriate for the age and ability of your players. Bring all safety issues concerning facilities to the attention of the appropriate authority.

  • Follow the advice of a physician when determining when an injured child is ready to play again.

  • Abide by the rules of all leagues and tournaments in which your team participates.

  • Be a positive role model whenever you are around any players. If you feel a situation is getting out of control find a field marshal or other official to observe or assess the game/situation. Do not “take it into your own hands”. Defuse, rather than inflate problems.
