Gameday Protocol

Updated Tuesday January 31, 2017 by CFC.

  1. Arrive early to assist with field set-up (or delegate to a parent(s))
  2. Ensure your team is 'good to go': shinguards on, cleats tied
  3. Assemble on the opposite side of the field to wherever the parents are
  4. Stay in your technical area
  5. Avoid 'commenting' on the game ("white noise")
  6. Avoid 'over coaching' - focus on 1 or 2 points, but also...
  7. Avoid 'spectating' (engage verbally and constructively with your team)
  8. Avoid criticizing the Referees (R.E.S.P.E.C.T.)
  9. Assist with clearing filed (or delegate to a parent(s))
  10. Remember the adage: "More caught than taught" - (The players are watching and will follow your example)
  11. Have FUN!
