Notes for Parents and Coaches



  • This is expected to be an all-volunteer operation.  Say “THANK YOU!” to all the volunteers.
  • A parent or guardian is to be available for all children at all times during practices.
  • Please park in marked spaces.  Unless all spaces are taken, please do not park on the grass and please never park in driveways.
  • No dogs are permitted on any of the grounds.
  • If a coach is going to be absent, he or she should make arrangements for a substitute.  If no coach or substitute is available at a practice, parents should organize and run the practice themselves.
  • Players are not to practice at the real goals.
  • Players should never pull up or play with the corner flags.
  • Parents and friends are requested to sit to the “outside” of the practice grids, not in the “middle aisle.”
  • Please bring a trash bag.  Collect all trash at the end of your session.  Take your trash with you.
  • Upon departure, make sure you leave all Club equipment (discs, cones, and scrimmage vests) in place.
  • Parents should offer praise, enthusiasm, cheer, energy, and positive reinforcement.  Pay attention when instruction is given.  There is a lot more to soccer than just “run” and “kick it.”

Any undefined soccer words, terms, or phrases may be found in The ULTIMATE SOCCER DICTIONARY of American Terms available at Amazon.com.
