Expectations of Coaches

RSC expects the following from coaches:

  • Always set a good example for players and parents to follow, exemplifying high moral and ethical behavior
  • Be conscious on how you select teams during practice making sure you not singling out any players
  • Respect judgement of referees, abide by rules of the game and display no behavior that could incite players or parents (ex. questioning calls, gestures, etc).
  • Treat opposing coach, players and fans with respect.
  • Develop and enforce penalties/ramifications for players who do not abide by sportsmanship and practice standards.
  • Develop each player to his fullest potential, giving candid feedback on strengths as well as opportunities to improve.
  • Develop creative, structured and FUN practice sessions
  • Teach each player, especially through personal example, to be humble and generous in victory and proud and courteous in defeat.
  • Take appropriate steps to minimize scoring in runaway games. Instead set limitations for your team to work on other skills
  • Teach and practice good sportsmanship and fair play by personally demonstrating commitment to these virtues.
  • It is important to treat all kids at all skill levels with the same respect. It is less important whether or not the player will become a great soccer player but more important that the player becomes a great human being.

 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:14-16
