Tips for Parents

Sideline Behavior Tips and Questions for the ride Home

Guidelines for Soccer Parents:

1.  Cheer

2.  Relax and Let Them Play

3.  Yelling Directions = Distraction

4.  Remember, They Are Your Kids

5.  Have Reasonable Expectations

6.  Meet with the Coaches.

Sideline Behavior:

•   Children want cheerleaders to applaud their success, not adults yelling instructions. Think of the soccer field as a playground and not as a sports venue.

•   What’s appropriate at a sport stadium with adult athletes is NOT appropriate for young children at play.

•   Focus on the process of playing and not the outcome.
         -Please know that any inappropriate conduct towards any other player, parent, referee, coach, ect. on the soccer fields will not be tolerated; and may result in ejection from the premises.

Good Questions on the Way Home:

•   Did you have fun today?

•   What did you think you did well today?

•   Did you learn any new moves?

•   Did you make new friends today?
