Coaches role:

To remain on the premises to provide oversight. We are there to make sure that safety rules are followed and enforced. We will do everything we can to keep them safe. But accidents happen. Ankles get rolled, noses bleed and knees get twisted...it can happen no matter how cautious we may be. However, we will not interfere with the lessons, both good and bad, that playing the game include. We will intervene in cases where bullying may be starting to root or if players can’t “let it go”. Coach Phillip White and myself will be the primary contact for this program. Any other Coaches that want to volunteer, please let me know.

 

Rules:

- PLAY SOCCER

- No slide tackling from behind - player will be sent home

- No hanging on the goals

- No dangerous play (intentional tripping, high cleats, etc) - player will sit out

- Mandatory play stoppage every 20 minutes - 2 minute rest/water break

- PLAY SOCCER

- Cleats, shin guards, and appropriate athletic attire

- MUST bring plenty of water/Gatorade/Powerade

- Bring a soccer ball

- PLAY SOCCER

 

Players Role:

 

- Have the desire and attitude to laugh, have fun, sweat, run, fall, get better, work on new moves or get better at old moves. If you want the ball, work for it. Go score! Perform a stepover! Do a rainbow! Whatever you want to do is ok because IT’S YOUR GAME!

 

- Imagination. Creativity. Courage. Hustle - Bring your A game. Bring your B game so you can work to have an A game. Try something new; get better at something old. Watch, play, try, learn, try again.

 

The Game:

- Make your own teams and team sizes

- Play with a Keeper or without

- Play with uneven numbers

- Play full-field with last man back using their hands or half-field with Puggs

- No Puggs? Use soccer bags as goals

- Score only on headers

- Play to 6 goals

or

- MAKE UP SOMETHING!!

- Just PLAY!

 

Parents role:

- Ensure your player(s) bring plenty of water/Gatorade

- Pick them up on time

- Allow them to play as if no one is watching. You have two hours of free time -- run errands, take a walk around Bensville Park, read a book

- Let them play as if they were down the street -- only yell when it is time to go home
