All participants must wear shin guards and soccer cleats. These can be purchased from any local Walmart, Canadian Tire, Zellers or Sports Store.
You will be required to commit to one day a week. Games will begin on time, so please come 5 - 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time. There will be a 20 - 30 minute warm up, practice prior to each game. Each Coach will be given a specific skill that will be introduced during these practice session. Additional practices are optional and are left up to the team, parents and coaches.
Coaching: Recreational Youth Soccer teams at the O.P.S.L. / Central West Soccer are coached by parent volunteers. In this way we can provide children an opportunity to play and participate at an affordable cost. If you can help out, please check the box on your child's registration form. Coaching Volunteers are always needed and welcome.
Training Manuals and a pre-season coaching clinic will be provided to help coaches get started. Each week, we provide the Skill of the Week with excellent drills and tips for each practice. Our referees and staff will assist you every step of the way. Enthusiasm and encouragement is the only experience necessary to becoming a good coach.
Sometimes a coach is unable to fulfill their commitment to coach the team. This may be due to changes in their personal life or their work schedule. It is then up to the parents, of the players on the team, to step up and help out. Two or three parents, working together, results in a successful season for all of the kids and often a fun and rewarding experience for themselves. Team work is what we want to promote and instill in our children.
It is not necessary to have a strong soccer background to coach recreational house league teams. The best coaches are those who are encouraging, put the kids first and understand that the children sign up to participate and have fun.
Rain Days: In the event of rain, you are expected to show up at the field at your scheduled time. The decision to cancel games due to weather conditions or field conditions is made by the Referee and/or Field Manager at the time of the game. A "Rain Delay" will be called if there is any sign of lightning, or heavy rain fall or any unsafe weather condition. Teams will be asked to wait for 15 minutes to see if the weather improves as does many times. If weather persists, the game will be abandoned by the Referee. Games are not rescheduled unless there are more than 3 games cancelled over the season due to weather. Any rescheduled games will most likely be played on Friday evening or on weekends.
Zero Tolerance Policy: Harassment of referee, coaches, players and staff will not be tolerated by anyone. All of our referees are trained and for some this will be their first season; they are also learning so be patient. If continual problems persist please report it to the League Director or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your concerns. Under no circumstance should you approach the referees, coaches or players yourself. Reports of such incidences may be cause for expulsion from the League, the Club and its facilities. In such cases No refunds will be granted.
It is important to remember that we are a recreational soccer club and are here to have fun, teach good sportsmanship, soccer skills and team spirit. We do our best to equally balance teams based on past evaluations and level of skill provided by the parents on the registration form. It may be necessary for us to move players within the first few weeks to balance teams correctly however there will always be a winner and a loser. Losing is often a part of life and how we, as parents, choose to handle the experience will reflect on our children, so please, lets teach our children good life lessons.
Thank you for registering with the O.P.S.L. a division of Central West Soccer.
Enjoy your season and have FUN!
