AYSO Philosophies
  • Everyone Plays
  • Our programs goal is for kids to play soccerso
    we
  • mandate that every player on every team must play
    at least
  • half of every game.
  • Balanced Teams
  • Each year we form new teams as evenly balanced as

  • possiblebecause it is fair and more fun when
    teams of
  • equal ability play.
  • Open Registration
  • Our program is open to all children between 41/2
    and 19
  • years of age who want to register and play
    soccer. Interest
  • and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing.

AYSO Philosophies
  • Positive Coaching
  • Encouragement of player effort provides for
    greater enjoyment by the players and ultimately
    leads to better-skilled and better-motivated
    players.
  • Good Sportsmanship
  • We strive to create a positive environment based
    on mutual respect rather than a win at all costs
    attitude, and our program is designed to instill
    good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO.

The Psychology of Coaching
10
Working with Young Athletes
  • As coaches we need to recognize that each athlete
    is an
  • individual with unique needs and that we treat
    them
  • accordingly
  • Understand that players want to enjoy attending
    practices
  • and games.
  • Organize your practices and games so that every
    athlete on your team has an opportunity to
    develop and maintain
  • positive feelings of self-worth.
  • Provide positive encouragement to all players for
    both
  • accomplishments and mistakes.

11
Working with Young Athletes (Continued)
  • Play in this very young age group is meant
  • to give a taste of the game, some
  • experience in working together as a team,
  • and, most of all, a positive introduction to
  • The sports experience.

12
What to Expect from U-8 Players
  • New and exciting adventures begin to open up
  • to the U-8 players as their coordination
  • improves and their size and strength increase.
  • However, new challenges are often met with a
  • mixture of enthusiasm and frustration.

13
What to Expect from U-8 Players
  • They typically set unrealistically high standards
    for
  • themselves, have difficulty making choices and,
    at
  • times, are overwhelmed by unfamiliar situations.

  • At the same time, changes in their cognitive
  • abilities enable them to see that underlying
    rules
  • are often useful for understanding everyday
  • events, objects and the behavior of others.
