Sometimes parents have questions about the season, the team, rules of play, Coaching strategy, etc. While we encourage parents to keep up the communication with their player's Coach, we understand that sometimes you just want to ask someone else. If you find yourself in that situation, here are a few things to consider:
Soccer can bring out a lot of emotion! Delay asking questions of your Coach right after an intense game. Remain positive on the field, then ask your question at the next practice when things have cooled.
Coaches coach and Parents parent during games. Please keep your sideline cheers to CHEERS only! If you are yelling Action words ("get open, shoot, go wide, spread out"), you are Coaching. Refraining from this is harder than it seems, especially for our younger teams, but allowing your child to learn from a skilled Coach builds confidence, independence and trust. If you find yourself doubting whether your player understands what they're supposed to do, an after practice chat with the coach is probably a good idea.
EYSC has a 50/50 rule that essentially means each player will have field time at least 50% of the game. Some players will have more, but everyone should get to play half the time.
If you have a question, concern or suggestion that you are uncomfortable speaking to the Coach about, you may contact the Age Group Coordinator for your team.
These administrators work as liaisons between the club's Board of Directors and the Coaches and are a terrific first resource.
