The Top 10 List for an Enjoyable Season

  1. The game is for the KIDS. Let's all be positive and encourage our children to do their best and to have fun. Our example is their best teacher. 
  2. Our coaches and referees are all volunteers and trying to do their best. AYSO rules and the FIFA laws of the game do not allow for dissent. Please respect the game. It is unacceptable to argue calls made by referees on the field.
  3. Only Coaches should be coaching players during a soccer match. Our coaches have spent many hours completing coach certification courses, coaching clinics and Safe Haven training. Parent coaching leads to confusion and distracts players from enjoying the experience. Players play, Coaches coach, Referees referee, and Parents cheer!
  4. Spectators. Parents and other spectators must sit on the side of the field that their team is assigned; home team is allowed to choose their side. (The home team is the first team listed on the schedule). All spectators should be at least 2 yards off the touchline and not behind the goal line.
  5. NO pets of any kind are allowed at the fields. No smoking or alcohol allowed at the fields. This is a health and safety issue that must be honored at every game.
  6. Safety. The safety of the players and spectators is our primary concern.  Please make sure to check the rainline to see if the fields are open and check the website often for tips from our Safety Director.
  7. Respect our neighbors. All of our fields are in neighborhoods. Our neighbors deserve our respect and courtesy by not blocking driveways or littering. Please drive safely in the parking lots and around the playing fields.
  8. Trash. The schools and parks do not clean up after us. Please pick up all trash and either dispose of it or carry it home with you. Parents in charge of refreshments should bring trash bags and take the trash bags home. 
  9. Soccer is a team sport. Respect the coaches and teammates by getting your children to their games and practices on time (and picking up on time if you do not stay). Most coaches expect players to arrive 30-45 minutes in advance of the game for warm-ups.
  10. Have fun. This is not the World Cup. College and pro scouts are not showing up at our games. Relax, take in the fresh air and enjoy the kids having a great time.
