Set Expectations !

Pre-season - It is a good practice to have team meeting or send a detailed email to your team in order to set out the team expectations - here are a few things you might want to go over: 

  • do you want a manager to help you?
  • set practice time/location
  • equipment - bring ball to practices, wear shin guards
  • communication - stress the importance of informing you beforehand if they're unavailable for an event. Check out TeamSnap app to help with team communication.
  • timeliness - arrive 15 min or more before games
  • snacks - ask parent to organize a snack schedule if desired
  • winter/indoor - gauge interest  

First practice - set out your expectations to the players. Things you might want to talk about: 

  • equipment - bring your ball, wear your shin guards, bring a water bottle, both jerseys to all games! 
  • fields - leave them the way we found them, pick up everything - your equipment, your trash, etc. 
  • Behavior - you're here to learn and have fun, listen and follow instructions
  • Competitiveness - we are here to compete, this is a contact sport, we want you to work hard and try to win but being aware of your surroundings and the consequences of your actions is an important piece of being a good competitor.
  • Sportsmanship - it's part of the game
