The Parents' Role
on the Sidelines
Support the team in the best way possible.

Do you think your child is getting the most out of soccer? The sport provides a fun, athletic activity that also builds teamwork, character and leadership skills. As parents, we always want the best for our kids. Have you ever thought about how you can help your young player get more out of soccer?

Why do kids want to play?

  1. Competence, learning and improving
  2. Affiliation - Being a part of a team, a club or with friends
  3. Fitness, agility, balance, coordination, and physical health
  4. Fun - This is the overwhelming reason why children play sports

So why do kids stop playing?

Studies have shown that it is mostly due to adult interference as a result from:

  1. Lack of playing time opportunity
  2. Over emphasis on winning and/or perfection
  3. Lack of fun
  4. Pressure coming from parents and coaches

What does this mean to you a parent? Most parents on the sideline are very positive. We all want the best for our child. How do we help them get the most out of their experience?

What Makes a Coach?

Consider becoming a SYSA coachHave you ever wondered if there is more you can do to foster your child's love of soccer but don't know how? Consider volunteering to coach. Sudbury Soccer is the perfect place to learn how to interact, encourage and motivate your child and other youth players. You don't need to have a resume like David Beckham or Mia Hamm. In fact, many adults shy away from coaching not because of time commitment, but because they do not feel they have the expertise to coach youngsters. Before you make a decision, realize that most youth coaches are not close to being experts — and that is fine when it comes to coaching youth soccer. Great expertise is not necessary when children are at the beginning levels of soccer.

A good coach just needs to be conscientious, enthusiastic and determined to help players learn in the best way they can. Children deserve these characteristics from all youth coaches, whatever their degree of expertise. It is not always what coaches know about soccer but how they present what they know that makes the difference.

My Smelly Soccer Shoes
By Lauren Coiner

Stinky, smelly soccer shoes,
sitting in my bag.

Stinky, smelly soccer shoes,
smell worse than my dad.

Stinky, smelly soccer shoes,
all comfy and worn in.

Stinky, smelly soccer shoes,
gosh, I need new ones again!

My feet are growing ever so fast
and with them go my shoes.

The stunning size of my new ones,
just might make the morning news!

Stinky, smelly soccer shoes,
Sitting in my bag.

Stinky, smelly soccer shoes,
Smell worse than my dad.
