  • As a parent, you play a special role in contributing to the needs and development of youngsters.
  • Through your encouragement and good example, you can help assure that all the boys and girls learn good sportsmanship and self-discipline. In the BLSA Soccer Club, young people learn to work together, to sacrifice for the good of the team, to enjoy winning and deal appropriately with defeat - all while becoming physically fit and healthy. Best of all, they have fun.
  • Support You’re Child
  • Supporting your child by giving encouragement and showing interest in their team is very important.
  • Help your child work toward skill improvement and good sportsmanship in every game. Teach your child that hard work and an honest effort are often more important than victory - that way your child will always be a winner despite the outcome of the game!
  • Always Be Positive
  • Parents serve as role models for their children. Become aware of this and work to be a positive role model. Applaud good plays by your child's team as well as good plays by the opposing team.
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from youth sports activities.
  • Remember: Your Child Wants To Have Fun
  • Remember that your child is the one playing soccer, not you. It's very important to let children establish their own goals - to play the game for themselves. Take care not to impose your own standards and goals on them.
  • Don't put too heavy a burden on your child to win games. Surveys reveal that 72% of children would rather play for a losing team than ride the bench for a winning team.
  • Children play for the fun of playing.
  • Reinforce Positive Behavior
  • Positive reinforcement is the best way to help your child achieve their goals and their natural fear of failure. Nobody likes to make mistakes. If your child does make one, remember its all part of learning, so encourage your child's efforts and point out the good things your child accomplished.
  • Don't Be a Sideline Coach or Referee
  • Coaches and referees are usually parents just like you. They volunteer their time to help make your child's youth soccer experience a positive one. They need your support too.
  • That means refraining from coaching or refereeing from the sidelines or arguing with players or parents from opponent’s team. As a volunteer organization, there's usually always an opportunity for you to take your interest in coaching or refereeing to the next level and become one yourself!
  • If you are not able to abide by the rules set forth by the BLSA soccer club, you may be subject to sanctions determined by the club. These sanctions may include, but are not limited too the following:
  • Asked to leave sidelines for game by referee.
  • Suspension from sidelines for remaining games during the season, playoffs included.
  • Suspension from the club, and any club sanctioned activity, for an amount of time to be determined by the club and the board.
  • Signature
  • Parent(s)/Guardian Date
  • Coach/Assistant Coach Date
  • PACT Training Session:
  • Date attended:
  • Location:
  • Attendance Verification Provided:
  • I will be aware that I have a tremendous influence, for either good or ill, on the education of the student athlete and, thus, will never place the value is winning above the value of instilling the highest ideals of character.
  • I will demonstrate the honor and dignity of the Big Lake Soccer Association at all times when I am in contact with student-athletes, officials, athletic directors, school administrators, the Big Lake Soccer Association, the media, and the public.
  • I will take an active role in the prevention of drug, alcohol and tobacco abuse.
  • I will master the contest rules and will teach them to my team members. I will not seek an advantage by circumvention of the spirit or letter of the rules.
  • I will exert my influence to enhance sportsmanship by spectators, athletes, and other coaches both directly and by working with members of the association and all parties affiliated with the program.
  • I will respect and support contest officials, program directors, coaches, and all teams. I will not indulge in conduct that would incite players or spectators to rally against the officials, program directors, coaches or teams. I believe public criticism of officials, players, program directors or coaches is unethical. I will meet and exchange greetings before and after the game to set the correct tone for the event.
  • I will not exert pressure on faculty members to give student-athletes special consideration.
  • I will demonstrate respectable behavior before, during and following competitions at home events or while away at other communities and discourage others from behaving inappropriately.
  • My signature below confirms my agreement to the above-stated “Code of Ethics”. As a coach/assistant coach/parent involved in the Big Lake Soccer Association program, I agree to maintain and demonstrate good sportsmanship to all players, coaches, spectators, and members of the Big Lake Soccer Association. I acknowledge that disrespectful behavior such as taunting or criticism of players, coaches, and game officials is unacceptable at any level. I understand that should this behavior be demonstrated (on or off the field), the Program Director/BLSA Board Members will remove the offending player(s), coaches or spectators from participation until such a time that the BLSA Soccer board can be assured no further problems will occur.
  • FIFA Player Code of Conduct

MYSA Weather Guidelines[Updated: 03/04/2009] Approved by Executive Committee with the authority of the Youth Council 05/08/02Amended July 14, 2002Weather conditions

  • MYSA Weather Guidelines
  • [Updated: 03/04/2009]
  • Approved by Executive Committee with the authority of the Youth Council 05/08/02Amended July 14, 2002Weather conditions are the responsibility of the game officials, coaches, tournament directors and club administrators. All should be aware of the potential dangers posed by different weather conditions and work together to keep the players and other participants as safe as possible. If the weather conditions warrant, game officials and coaches should discuss before the game starts what the procedures will be to insure the safety of the players. Tournament directors should monitor weather conditions including the warnings and watches issued by the National Weather Service. In the event of sudden changes, the tournament directors should have a means of sending warnings to the site officials. A weather plan should be provided to the participating teams to allow a clear understanding of shelter locations, evacuation plans and how the weather will affect tournament results. Club administrators should perform similar functions for league play.Technology has improved the monitoring capability for all concerned. Weather radios are relatively inexpensive and provide virtually instant information on alerts, watches and warnings. Lightning detectors can take the guesswork out of how far away lightning is. Cell phones and two-way radios can meet communication requirements to implement weather plans.
  • Preliminary ConcernsIt is strongly recommended that clubs purchase weather radios and have them available for on site monitoring. Lightning detectors are recommended also. Coaches may wish to consider obtaining their own weather radios .Rec Plus and competitive league play obviously involves travel. Conditions in one location may be very different from another, especially the further apart the two locations are. The coaches are responsible for keeping informed of the weather conditions at home, along their route to the game and at the game site. The coaches are also responsible for communications with the opposing coach and their own team in the event of inclement weather. Discussions between the coaches must provide for common sense to prevail. The Competitive Representative must be informed of any games affected by inclement weather.Tournament directors should provide participating teams with the weather guidelines for the tournament. Some things to consider are:
How are games affected? Is a game complete at the half? Half plus 1 minute? Will subsequent games be shortened?

Are refunds available in the event games are cancelled for weather? How will standings be determined if some teams' games are cancelled and no time is available to make them up?

Severe Storms

Severe storms can produce high winds, hail, heavy rain, lightning and/or tornados. If a severe storm approaches the playing area, the safety of the players is the number one priority of coaches and referees and may require that the game be suspended while shelter is sought. In the event the game is suspended ALL participants MUST clear the field immediately and move into their cars or other permanent shelter.High winds can create problems by dust and debris being in the air or blowing over objects. Hail can cause injury. Heavy rain can create hazardous field conditions or lead to flash flooding. Lightning is discussed separately. Tornados are obvious dangers of any severe storm. Use common sense and seek shelter as appropriate.

Lightning (Remember the Rule of 30/30)Lightning is the second leading cause of storm related deaths (flooding is first). Lightning can strike up to 10 miles outside of a thunderstorm, literally a bolt from the blue. The danger from lightning can persist for 20-30 minutes or more after a thunderstorm has passed. The National Weather Service does not issue watches or warnings for lightning by itself. However the National Weather Service does advise that if you see a lightning bolt and hear the thunder in 30 seconds or less, you must seek shelter and wait 30 minutes before resuming outdoor activity.If a person can hear thunder, or see lightning, the danger already is present. A clear, sunny sky overhead with storm clouds nearby can still be dangerous.Referees and Coaches should adhere to the following guidelines:

If lightning is within 5 miles, the game(s) should be suspended and shelter sought. A lightning detector can identify the distance accurately but may not be available. A rough guideline is to measure the time between the lightning flash and hearing the corresponding thunder. If it is 30 seconds or less, seek shelter. It may not be possible to determine which lightning strike generated which roll of thunder. A simple rule: If you can hear it, clear it!

Shelter should be in larger, enclosed structures. Smaller, open structures, tents, trees, isolated areas, etc, should be avoided. Cars, with windows rolled up, or buses can provide good shelter. Avoid contact with metal or other conducting materials to the outside surfaces. Do not stay in open, unprotected areas.

Games should not be restarted for at least 30 minutes after the last roll of thunder is heard.

Tournaments should inform participating teams of notification and evacuation plans and shelters near the playing sites.

Heat is a problem when it prevents the body from cooling itself. The hotter the body gets, the more likely it is to increase fatigue levels, develop cramps, and increase the possibility of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. The hotter and more humid the weather, the faster these problems can develop. Temperatures as low as 65 degrees, with a relative humidity of 100%, can be serious.A heat index chart should be given to every coach and referee. Games need to be adjusted as the heat index rises:

Mandatory water breaks Goto quarters Shorten the games Provide training to coaches to teach the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Club administrators and tournament officials are responsible for monitoring the heat index (by weather radio, online or the Weather Channel) and keeping the participating teams and game officials informed of the heat index. Coaches are encouraged to also monitor the conditions.

Hot Weather Guidelines

The following are recommended minimum guidelines when there is a possibility of dangerous high heat index:

Heat IndexRecommended Guidelines Up to 89° Normal Play90° - 99°Mandatory 2-minute water breaks per half with running time.Each half shortened by 5 minutes.100° - 105° Mandatory 2-minute water breaks per half with running time.Each half shortened by 10 minutes.105°+Suspend play.

Please check the USA Today web site for additional information in regards to how temperature and humidity combine to make it feel hotter.Other Links:
