For All Practices
Please be on time, players dressed appropriately, wearing shin pads, with plenty to drink. No jewelry of any kind is allowed. All of our coaches are volunteers with families, jobs and various obligations. They dedicate free time out of their week to coach the children in our community. Please do your best to let them know whenever your child will miss a practice. Repeated absences from practices and games can result in disciplinary action from the league.
For All Games
Again, please be on time and call your coach if your child will be absent. Players should arrive a minimum of 15 minutes before game time for warm-ups.
Required equipment: SYS jersey, soccer shorts, shin guards with soccer socks worn over them, soccer cleats (optional), and water bottle. No jewelry of any kind is allowed.
During The Game
Parents, family and friends must remain on the side of the field opposite the teams. All coaches and league officials must wear their CORI badges on game days indicating that they have completed adequate background checks before interacting with the teams. Friends and family members without the proper CORI identification are not permitted to sit or congregate with the teams during games. League officials will question anyone without a badge and politely ask them to move.
Parents and coaches should always encourage players in every possible way. Parents should allow the coaches to do their jobs and not coach from the sidelines - it is very distracting to the players.
All cheering and fan support should be in the form of positive encouragement. We ask that parents and fans refrain from negative criticism, especially of the referees, who after all, are only trying to do the very best job they can. Coaches are responsible for parent’s behavior at games. If the referee complains to the coach, the offending parent may be asked to leave the field.
Staying In Touch
Please keep abreast of team news, announcements, and the upcoming schedule by using our web site, through our emails and social media, such as Facebook and Instagram.
We welcome and encourage your input. Feel free to contact any one of us by email or provide feedback in person as you see us on the fields. We will try to address your concerns as best we can.
Thank you for the opportunity to coach your children! It is a privilege.
