The Field encourages all of our coaches, parents and players to follow MYSA's Code of Conduct.
Missouri Youth Soccer Association www.mysa.org
Think about what you're doing during a game!
Uphold the Spirit of the Game!
If you follow the expectations described, the spirit of the game will be alive and well in Missouri and will grow, along with the enjoyment of all.
Coaches who do not follow the expectations described above will be disciplined or removed from our facility.
We want to ensure that games are fair, positive and enjoyable experiences for all of the children and adults involved. A soccer game should be friendly and unifying - a spirited social and athletic occasion for players, coaches, referees and spectators. - MYSA Board of Directors
|COACHES CODE OF CONDUCT||PLAYERS CODE OF CONDUCT|
To clarify expectations of coach conduct, we jointly expect all coaches to conform to this code of conduct.
To clarify expectations of player conduct, we jointly expect all players to conform to this code of conduct.
MYSA stresses two points:
- Referees - especially young and inexperienced ones - are like your players and yourself, in that they need time to develop. You can play an important role in helping them to improve by letting them concentrate on the game. You can help by encouraging them, by accepting their inevitable, occasional mistakes and by offering constructive post-game comments. On the other hand, you could discourage and demoralize the referees by criticizing their decisions, by verbally abusing them and inciting-or even accepting-your own players' overly aggressive behavior.
- Your example is powerful, for better or worse. If you insist on fair play, if you concentrate on
your players' enjoyment of the game and their overall, long term development, and if you
support the referee, your players and their parents will notice. If you encourage (or allow)
your players to play outside the rules, if you're overly concerned about results, and if you
criticize the referee harshly, your players and their parents will also notice.
