COACHING INFORMATION FOR HEAD COACHES AND ASSISTANT COACHES
FCYSA COACHING REQUIREMENTS
ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY
The FCYSA has passed a Zero Tolerance policy the will be strictly enforced
CODE OF CONDUCT
The FCYSA Coach’s Code enumerates basic requirements, organized under four principles. They are: setting a good example; keeping players safe; ensuring that all participants in FCYSA have a positive experience; and relating to game officials in an exemplary manner and encouraging players to do the same.
1.Setting a good example
The coach’s example is powerful. If a coach insists on fair play, concentrates on players' enjoyment of the game and their overall, long term development, and supports the referee, players and parents will notice. If a coach discourages (or allows) players to play outside the rules, are overly concerned about the results, and/or criticize the referee or opposing coach, players and parents will also notice. Above all, children deserve a coach they can respect.
Coaches should have the safety of the players in their charge as their first priority at all times. Coaches should be familiar with the facility(ies) and fields on which their teams practice and play, and be mindful of the levels of fitness and skill of each one of their players. Coaches should also be familiar with the Laws of the Game, current with principles of age-appropriate coaching, aware of applicable existing rules and regulations, and informed of the affairs of FCYSA and their league.
FCYSA wishes to ensure that games are fair, positive and enjoyable experiences for 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.
Coaches should demonstrate respect for the official and his/her role. Coaches can help referees improve by letting them concentrate on the game, accepting their inevitable, occasional mistakes, and offering constructive post-game comments.
