coaches meeting fall 19.docx



At the beginning of each season, it is highly recommended that you pull your team together for a swim party, a cook out or a picnic. This is done for two main reasons. First, it is a chance for you to meet all the players and all the players have a chance to meet each other and bond. Second, it is a great time to meet the parents, express what you want to achieve during the season and have them sign the Parents Code of Ethics.


- Example of a Team Meeting -

Introduce Head Coach and Assistant Coach to Parents and Players.

GOALS: Please set goals that are realistic and obtainable, being aware that the season is 10 weeks in length and players will vary in both
ability and playing experience.

-Have fun – soccer for a lifetime (building a love of the game)
- Make new friends
- Feel good factor (make them proud of themselves)
- Make learning fun and enjoyable (passing, dribbling, shooting)
- Learn to work as a team (everyone is equal)
- Follow directions and rules
- Supportive, positive parents (parents code of ethics)
- Good communication


This is also a good time to keep parents informed of what will be happening through the season and also educate parents who may not know anything about the game.

- Hand out fixture schedules of where the games will be played and when
- Arrange for parents to pick up uniforms on a certain date & time (if they’ve arrived, the meeting would be a good time to
hand them out)
- A roster of who will bring the post game refreshments (very important with young children)
- What nights practice will be held and from what time
- Educate on how many players will be on a field, how long the quarters will last and how big the field they play on will be
- SAY Philosophy - everyone plays at least two quarters
- Explain the different positions on the field
- Questions and comments
