Code of Conduct

Expectation of Conduct

Welcome to the EGSA Travel Soccer season. I will be your child's coach this season. The following is an outline of what you can expect from me as your child’s coach, and what is expected of your child and family members. Once you have read and signed this Expectations of Conduct, please return it to me.

What can you and your child expect from me and the assistant coaches?

- to ensure that a member of the coaching staff be on time for all practices and games

- to be as fair as possible to all players - to do our best to teach the fundamentals of the game

- to be positive and respect each child as an individual, and provide positive support and encouragement

- to be open to ideas, suggestions, and help - to always be positive with our team, the opposing team, and the officials

- to respect our opponents, and display gracious behavior during competition

What do I expect from my players?

- to be on time for all practices and games

- to pay attention when the coaches or officials are speaking

- to take care of their uniforms and other equipment

- to always do their best, whether on the soccer field or on the bench

- to be cooperative at all times and share team duties

- to respect not only others but themselves as well

- to be positive with teammates at all times

- to try not to become upset at their own mistakes or those of others, we will all make our share this year and we must support one another

- to understand that winning is only important if you can

What do I expect from you as parents and family?

- to bring your child on time to practice and games

- to come and enjoy the game, and cheer all the players to make them all feel important

- to allow us to coach and run the team as outlined above

- to try not to question our leadership, all players will make mistakes and so will we

- to only be positive with the coaches, the players and the officials

- if you wish to question our strategies or leadership, please do not do so in front of the players or fans.

Parents wishing to discuss or question the coaching strategies or leadership will need to send an email to the coach to schedule a date and time for the discussion. Parents wishing to discuss or question the coaching strategies or leadership should never do so before, during, or after a soccer game, nor practices. This policy is designed to not only allow the coach to concentrate on the team during games and practices, but also to ensure that adequate time and attention is given to address any particular question and/or concern.

Please do not yell instructions to your child during the game. If you have ever played sports in front of a crowd, you know you don't hear most of what is being yelled at you. That is because you are concentrating. Let's leave the coaching to the coach and help the kids to know the one voice they should be listening for (the coach). Too many people giving different instructions from the sidelines, really do not help but instead, only confuse the players. Please go ahead, cheer (great job, nicely done and lots of applause) and enjoy the game.

CONCUSSION FACT SHEET FOR PARENTS

WHAT IS A CONCUSSION?

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury. Concussions are caused by a bump or blow to the head. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious. You can’t see a concussion.

Signs and symptoms of concussion can show up right after the injury or may not appear or be noticed until days or weeks after the injury. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms yourself, seek medical attention right away.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF CONCUSSION?

If your child has experienced a bump or blow to the head during a game or practice, look for any of the following signs of a concussion:

SYMPTOMS REPORTED BY ATHLETE:
• Headache or “pressure” in head
• Nausea or vomiting
• Balance problems or dizziness
• Double or blurry vision
• Sensitivity to light
• Sensitivity to noise
• Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy
• Concentration or memory problems
• Confusion
• Just not “feeling right” or is “feeling down”

SIGNS OBSERVED BY PARENTS/ GUARDIANS:
• Appears dazed or stunned
• Is confused about assignment or position
• Forgets an instruction
• Is unsure of game, score, or opponent
• Moves clumsily
• Answers questions slowly
• Loses consciousness (even briefly)
