Hello Soccer Players and Families,

Note from our President, Robin Tomasi:
Our Rec games are about to get into full swing. We love to see our young players learning to love the game and our experienced players honing their skills. Make sure to meet your coach and thank, them from all of us, for their time and care. Our volunteer Coaches are what our club thrives on, they are the central part of how we provide the MSC soccer program.

Code of Conduct on the soccer field.  
Roughly half of all new referees quit after only one year of officiating [article]. To help us cultivate an environment of support and good sportsmanship, please keep the following in mind:
  • Please remember to treat referees with respect. Many of our referees are young and just want to provide the soccer experience they love to rising players. Coaches and parents are the example players look to for how they play and enjoy the game.
  • Encourage your child to be gracious in victory and defeat. Help them to see defeat as a learning experience by working towards improvement.
  • Applaud all good plays by your team or by members of the opposing team 
  • Allow the coach to be the only coachYou might be telling your child to do the exact opposite of what the coach has told him or her to do.
  • One of my FAVORITE ways to end a day of soccer is the PARENT TUNNEL. Gather all the parents in the middle of the field and "put your arms in the air like you just don't care."  Have fun with it, and enjoy the moment.
Thank you for lending us your kids and trust in our efforts to improve their skills as we teach them the game of soccer.
