Coaches’ Meeting 2013
Holden, Rutland, and Paxton are investing heavily in the soccer programs bringing in professional trainers from Challenger, Mass Youth Soccer, etc.
Their coaches are required to get licensed.
We need to raise the bar as well if we want our kids to have a chance to play at Wachusett in the coming years.
Have a lesson plan for each and every practice – know what it is that you are trying to teach or reinforce before you get to the field, whether it be an individual skill, positional play, or simply soccer sense (better game awareness) and choose drills that reinforce what you are trying to improve.
Coaching resources are readily available on the SYSA website as well as on soccer websites and Youtube.
Your lesson plans should emphasize touches on the ball and small-sided drills.
Remember - No Lines, No Lectures, No Laps!!
To clarify expectations of coach conduct, we jointly expect all coaches to conform to this code of conduct.
• Before, during and after the game, be an example of dignity, patience and positive spirit.
• Before a game, introduce yourself to the opposing coach and to the referee.
• During the game, you are responsible for the sportsmanship of your players. If one of your players is disrespectful, irresponsible or overly aggressive, take the player out of the game at least long enough for him/her to calm down.
During the game, you are also responsible for the conduct of the parents of your players.
It is imperative to explain acceptable player and parent behavior in a preseason meeting.
During the game, you are also responsible for the conduct of spectators rooting for your team.
Encourage them to applaud and cheer for good plays by either team. Discourage them, and you may need to be forceful and direct, from yelling at players and the referee.
During the game, do not address the referee at all. If you have a small issue, discuss it with the referee calmly and patiently after the game.
If you have a major complaint, or if you think the referee was unfair, biased, unfit, or incompetent report your opinion to your Coordinator and to the Referee Coordinator. Your feedback will be taken seriously if itare presented objectively and formally.
After the game, thank the referee and ask your players
to do the same. Always shake hands with the opposing team.
SYSA Policy on Coaches’ behavior towards Referees
SYSA has a zero tolerance for coaches who verbally abuse our referees. We follow the three-strike rule.
First offense is a written warning,
Second offense is one game suspension and an appearance before the SYSA Board,
Third offense and you will be relieved as a coach and not allowed to coach again.
Have a parents meeting at the first practice.
