Coaching Guidelines
  • The Region 109 Board of Directors (Board)
    understands that there are varying philosophies
    on the appropriate guidelines for coaching young
    soccer players and administering a soccer league.
    These Regional Guidelines are based on the
    National Guidelines, the U.S. Soccer Federations
    Best Practices For Coaching Soccer in the United
    States (2006) and the collective efforts of the
    Board, Region 109 families and the public.. The
    Board welcomes comments and involvement by Region
    109 families to improve these Regional Guidelines
    in future soccer seasons.

19
Coaching Guidelines
  • These Regional Guidelines are mandatory for all
    players, coaches, referees, other volunteers and
    families in Region 109 (Region 109 Members),
    unless noted otherwise. To be clear, while
    termed Regional Guidelines, these rules are to
    be followed and shall not be disregarded or
    altered, either on their face or by agreement,
    by, between or among Region 109 Members. Failure
    to follow these Regional Guidelines may result
    in, among other things, removal of the Region 109
    Member(s) from participation in the activities of
    Region 109, at the discretion of the Board.

Coaching Guidelines
  • Please choose the proper manner of communicating
    with the Board on your views of these Guidelines
  • Here is how NOT to communicate-September 20, 2006
    email to me
  • Mike,
  • If 4x4 is so important, than dont put 11 players
    on a team. Draw the line at 10.
  • I strongly disagree with your ruling you can
    tell my parents that little Suzie is sitting out
    for 2 quarters.
  • I am not.

21
Coaching Guidelines
  • A. Three-Quarter Guideline In Region 109, each
    player plays at least three quarters of a game
    and no player shall play four quarters until all
    players have played three quarters.

22
Coaching Guidelines
  • B. Positive Coaching Guideline Coaches and
    Spectators should, under no circumstance, engage
    in public and/or demeaning criticism of their own
    or opposing players, the referees or other
    coaches during games. For more information about
    Positive Coaching, please refer to the book by
    Jim Thompson, Positive Coaching (1995 ed.
    Portola Valley Warde Publishers).
  • One of the basic Laws of the Game of soccer is
    that dissent from the referees decisions is not
    allowed. Soccer is unlike baseball, basketball or
    other professional sports we are familiar with
    the image of an angry coach or manager yelling at
    the umpire from a distance of two inches simply
    has no place in this sport. Players who directly
    show dissent towards a referee's decision can be
    subject to a Caution (Yellow Card). Repeated
    dissent after a Yellow Card has been shown is
    cause for Sending Off (Red Card).

Coaching Guidelines
  • (contd)
  • Coaches are responsible (and will be held
    accountable) for their own conduct, as well as
    the conduct of Coaching Assistants, Players, and
    Spectators. If one or more Spectators persist in
    open and loud criticism of the Referees
    decisions, the Referee should warn the Coach that
    such behavior is unacceptable. In extreme cases,
    the Coach may be dismissed from the field for
    persistent abusive conduct towards the Referee on
    the part of himself or any Spectators for whom he
    is responsible. From Law 5, (d) (Referee has
    discretionary power)... to suspend or terminate
    the game whenever, by reason of the elements,
    interference by Spectators, or other cause.

Coaching Guidelines
  • C. Original Registration Forms Guideline
    Coaches must have registration forms with
    original signatures for all of their players in
    their possession during all practices and games.
    Referees are NOT expected to ask to be shown the
    registration forms (which also serve as medical
    release forms). It is the coach's responsibility
    to ensure that matches do not begin unless
    registration forms are physically present.

    must stay, at all times during games, within ten
    yards of either side of the half-line. The
    Coaches of the home team (the team that is listed
    first on the game schedule) choose the touch line
    from where to coach, if they arrive at least 20
    minutes prior to the official starting time of
    the match. The other teams Coaches, and the
    visiting teams Spectators, take positions behind
    the opposite touch line, unless there is
    consensus among Coaches and Referees that one
    touch line may be shared by both teams Coaches
    and Spectators. Spectators must stay at least 6
    feet from either touch line.

Coaching Guidelines
  • F. Line-up Card Guideline Lineup cards must be
    given to the Referee before the start of the
    game, filled out with team name, Coaches names,
    and names and numbers of all players present. It
    will be the Referees responsibility to note on
    the card, which players are out for which
    quarters and who scored, in addition to
    assessments of conduct on the field by players,
    coaches and spectators.

Coaching Guidelines
  • G. Substitution Guideline Coaches will be
    expected to instruct their Substitute Players to
    report to the Referee at the quarter breaks and
    report to her/him which Player she/he is
    replacing. Referees will dispose of completed
    lineup cards as instructed by the Division
    Commissioner responsible for the relevant age
    group. (In U-12/U-14, game cards should instead
    be entered into the Region 109 web-based game
    tracking system.) Lacking other instruction,
    Referees should keep game cards until at least
    the end of the season.
  • All divisions must substitute players only at the
    quarters (except for U16-U19 divisions that have
    free substitutions in the fourth quarter only).
    There is no free substitution in the U7-U14
    divisions during a quarter. For safety reasons,
    players may be substituted in case of injury, but
    must follow the National AYSO Guidelines for
    injury substitutions found here

    information contained on the Player Rating forms

    back, right back and center backs), offense (left
    forward, right forward or center forward) or
    midfield (left midfield, right midfield or center
    midfield). For the U14 and older divisions, this
    General Guideline is not mandatory but is
    encouraged (with the exception of the goalie
    position for U14 and older divisions where a
    goalie may play more than two quarters).
