FYSA Soccer Rules For Parents Behavior Rules of Behaviour

Your children are playing soccer for fun. Everyone wants you to enjoy the great game of soccer. This information is being provided in an effort to assist you and your children in gaining the maximum benefit possible from these soccer games. Below are some simple rules you should observe. PLEASE CONSIDER THEM CAREFULLY!

  1. Do not shout instructions to your child. This only causes confusion, since the coach has already instructed your child on how to play. If you do shout instructions, your child will probably try to please you and the coach at the same time. In trying to do two things at one time, the child becomes unable to handle his loyalties and ends up pleasing neither parent nor coach.
  2. Cheer for your child when he/she plays the ball well. However, remember that your child is a member of a team. Let the other players know you support them too.
  3. Suffer in silence (or moan softly) whenever something occurs that goes against your child's team. A display of anger may inflame a delicate situation resulting in embarrassment for you or your child. Some parents embarrass their own children by making a spectacle of themselves.
  4. Do not run up and down the sidelines. Find a comfortable place to sit down or stand, relax and enjoy the match.
  5. Do not shout insults or verbally abuse the referee. It's hard for a child to learn respect for the referee or other officials when their parents set a poor example. The referee can and will stop the match if the crowd becomes discourteous.
  6. Aid the team parent by helping provide refreshments at halftime and after the game are over.
  7. Set the tone for good sportsmanship by adopting a positive attitude if your team loses. Compliment your child upon his/her good plays and ignore the mistakes. Your child will be happy you noticed his good qualities.

REMEMBER--your child will forget about today's game. Next week he/she will probably have forgotten the score. However, both of you will remember the good time the child had playing the most popular sport in the world.

Fighting, horseplay or any physical or verbal abuse will not be tolerated. Penalties may include issuing a red card and ejection from the game. The Board may impose additional penalties up to and including suspension from the league.


FYSA Comportamiento y Normas Para los Padres

Sus hijos están jugando al fútbol para divertirse. Todos quieren disfrutar del gran partido de fútbol.  Esta información se proporciona en un esfuerzo para ayudar a usted y a sus hijos en la obtención del máximo beneficio posible de estos partidos de fútbol. A continuación se presentan algunas reglas simples que debe observar. POR FAVOR, TENGALAS EN CUENTA CUIDADOSAMENTE.

  1. No gritar instrucciones a su hijo. Esto sólo provoca confusión, por que el entrenador ya ha dado instrucciones a su niño cómo jugar. Si gritar instrucciones, lo más probable es que el niño intente  favorecer usted y al entrenador al mismo tiempo. En el intento de hacer dos cosas a la vez, el niño se vuelve incapaz de manejar su lealtad y termina por agradar ni padres ni entrenador.
  2. Animar a su hijo cuando juega el balón. Sin embargo, recuerde que su hijo es miembro de un equipo. Déje que los demás jugadores sepán que ustedes apoyan también a ellos.
  3. Sufran en silencio (o con un gemido suave) siempre que ocurre algo que va en contra de su equipo.  Una muestra de enojo pueden inflamar una situación delicada que dara vergüenza para usted y para su hijo. Algunos padres avergüenzan a sus propios hijos, haciendo un espectáculo de sí mismos.
  4. No corran en el margen,  hacia arriba y abajo. Encuentre un lugar cómodo para sentarse o ponerse de pie, relajarse y disfrutar del partido.
  5. No griten insultos verbales o abusen del árbitro. Es difícil para un niño aprender a respetar al árbitro o a otros funcionarios cuando sus padres dan un mal ejemplo. El árbitro puede y detendrá el partido si la muchedumbre se pone descortes.
  6. Ayuda al equipo de padres  a ofrecer refrigerios en el descanso y después del partido.
  7. Fije el tono para la buena deportividad, adoptando una actitud positiva si su equipo pierde. Felicíte a su hijo ay pase por alto sus errores. Su hijo será feliz que noté sus buenas cualidades.

Lucha, juegos o bromas o cualquier abuso físico o verbal no se va a tolerar. Las sanciones podrán incluir una tarjeta roja y expulsión del juego. La Junta Directiva podrá imponer las sanciones adicionales hasta e incluyendo la suspensión de la liga.
