Coaches Responsibilities

To achieve the league’s overall objectives, BCSL coaches must do the following:

  • Encourage all children to participate, to learn something and to have fun.
  • Teach soccer skills through the use of simple fun-filled games and drills.
  • Solicit active participation of parents in many of these games/drills and when we need other coaching help.
  • Work on a few soccer skills one day and then let them go the next day to focus on something else.
  • Play everyone equally and through all positions if there is interest.
  • Teach the children to respect themselves, their talents and the rules of the game.
  • Encourage both parents and children to show respect their coaches, opposing players and coaches, and game/League officials.
  • Communicate with players and parents in a positive manner and keep parents informed about team and League activities.
  • Communicate with the coaches of the opposing team before the game about number of players, etc., as an example to the children to show that one can be respectful and friendly to the people on the other side of the field.
  • Maintain high standards of personal conduct, be enthusiastic and be generous with deserved praise.
