Coaches code of ethics

COACHES
The coaches are here to help develop soccer skills in the players, to help them grow and learn, and to develop a winning attitude, not only in soccer but also in life. The coaches need to show respect for:

  • Themselves - You are here to teach soccer, but more than that you are an example to the players. What you do and how you act determines how your players behave and act. Show your commitment to the team and the players by always acting in a sportsmanlike manner and in improving your knowledge of the game.
  • Players - Each player is a person that is unique. Each one learns differently and at different speeds. Don’t take their mistakes personally, they are trying to learn and grow. Set high standards but discourage unfair gamesmanship. Be a role model and show a love and respect for the game.
  • Referees - The referee’s job is to keep the game fair, not perfect, but fair. They are like a policeman and judge rolled into one. Respect their calls, not all will be perfect and mistakes will be made. Be constructive, not loud and offensive. Without referees we have no competitive games. Just like us, they are human.
  • Other Team, Parents and Coaches - The players and coaches on the other team want to play soccer. They may not always act in a sportsmanlike manner, but that does not change the way you act. Treat others as you want yourself and your team treated. Soccer is designed to be played by a set of rules. More importantly, it is meant to be coached by adults who respect not only the letter of the law but also the spirit of the law. You are a representative of not only yourself but also your team, METRO FC, and your city. Your appearance and conduct must be professional at all times and always enhance the image of our club to the public.
  • Parents - Parents will stick up for their child, sometimes at the wrong time. Give them a chance; they are learning along with their child. Communicate with parents on a regular basis.
