…Yelling “Shoot, Jenny, shoot” to a player who is
approaching the goal with the ball does a
number of destructive things. First, it tells every
player on the opposing team that Jenny is about
to shoot, therefore lessening considerably her
chances of success. Secondly, it makes Jenny feel
she has no choice but to shoot, and that if she
doesn’t shoot, she is somehow letting the team
down. Worst of all, it let’s Jenny off the hook.
Now she doesn’t have to actually think and make
a decision herself about what to do. All she has to
do is obey the instruction.
For kids of this age, obeying instructions
from an adult comes far more naturally to
them than making decisions of their own.
But soccer is a sport where the
players have to make the decisions
themselves, literally thousands of small
split-second decisions every game. The
younger they start, the better.
So please don’t yell specific instructions to
players during games…
Referees have the game cards to keep track

At the discretion of the coaches the referee shall permit substitution. This normally occurs as a substitution during play, the player coming out will be asked to slap the hand of the player going into the game at the touchline. It is the coach’s responsibility to ensure the correct amount of players is on the field. On occasion the referee may need to stop play for substitution while the ball is in play, in which case the game is resumed with a dropped ball.
Then player will play at least half the time they were there
No parents allowed on team sideline. This helps the coaches maintain player focus.
