Very Happy

Years of experience teaches that this is by far the best approach to parenting a young player:

• Release your player to the game.
• The best job for you is that of a fully supportive parent.
• After a match or practice, limit your part of the conversation to: “I love to watch you play soccer. What would you like to eat?”

Below are important points to follow in order to keep the sport fun and productive.

1. Refrain from sideline coaching. It undermines what coaches are trying to accomplish and takes away from the game. Instead, be positive and acknowledge good plays.
2. Let the kids play. Release your player to the game. Most players are confused and/or embarrassed by parents yelling from the sideline. If players have been well coached, they will know what to do on the field. If a player makes a mistake, let him/her learn from it in their own way.
3. Absolutely no yelling at or arguing with referees or linesmen. Be respectful and patient. If you have a question about a call, quietly discuss it with your Team Ref. We do not want kids arguing with refs, so set a good example. There has never been a case where a parent has disputed a referee’s decision and convinced him to change his mind. Relax and enjoy the game.
4. Refrain from criticizing the other team, their parents, or their coaches. Be respectful of our visitors while we’re at home and of our hosts while we are away. Remember that you represent Northwest United FC and your team.
5. Please do not complain about other players on your player’s team. Negative comments and attitudes are harmful and erode parent harmony, which in turn erodes team unity. At most of the ages of our teams, players are still developing. We all bring something positive to the table, so let’s be supportive of all players at all levels.
6. Please do not complain about your team’s coach to other parents. If you are unhappy with decisions your coach is making, arrange an appointment to meet privately away from the field.
7. One last word of caution. Your child has just played a tough game. Whether they have won or lost, please think about what you say to your player and try to stay positive. Every now and again, a player will have a bad game. That is part of playing a sport. Be there for your player and support him.

The above are some of the cautions. Below are some things that you can do to contribute to the game.

1. Cheer for good plays, good hustle, good effort, goals, saves, shots – on both teams.
2. Cheer for any play or player that is deserving, not just your son or daughter.
3. Acknowledge a great play by the opposing team.
4. Be there for moral support and positive reinforcement.

Thanks for the reminder! I recently had a coach ask me if I went to my dd school during a test and yell at her over her desk as she took the test...did I tell her what answer to pick or ask her what she was thinking when she picked a certain answer...did I then go to the teacher and ask why my dd was picking that answer instead of what I told her???

No, I'd be crazy to do that right? I trusted her to take her tests..I trusted her teacher to teach her the material on the test. He told me it should be the same in soccer.

hmmmm.... gosh that makes sense. Very Happy

One of our coaches used to bring a bag of blowpops to the game. Offenders would be handed one. Only took a few games for everybody to catch on... Laughing

Goalie Mom's (at least one I know of) usually take care of any - even slightly questionable behavior from their other half...

Why do these rules apply mostly to goalie parents? Only misbehavior I've seen comes from parents of players on the field not in the box. Curious.

Side joke to goodfornuthin. He's a goalie parent.
