We all have work and make money for living. Your kid is your kid. They need your support to grow. not only payinf their fees, also to take them to their training and games. The biggest encouragement is when they know you are supporting him from the gallery. We understand you are all busy with your daily life. So are all the coaches. They are giving their valuable time for your children. Your children having quality time under the supervision of a secureity verified and qualified adult.
Transportation is a big issue especially in the Northeast. YOU are responsible for your child's transportation for training and games. You can Car Pool with other parents if you have to.
Coach is NOT responsible to provide rides to your children. Health and Safety issues are involved. Especially after COVID we do not want to flll up our vehicle with childern from 4 different familes and put my family memners under a risk.
Also, If any of the coaches have an accident or incident on the road, who will take care of your child in his car? Also, coaches can have appointments or committments before or after the game.
Club collects the fees to pay their programs, field permits, facility booking, buying uniform, paying per player registration fee to CMSA.buying balls, vests first aid, equipment etc, paying for the Website, advartisement etc. We need the noney before the beginning of the season so we can offer a good experience for your child without stress.
Coaches and Club TD will select players for their teams, shuffle or move where necessary EXCLUSIVELY based on set criteria; evaluation, skills, committment, attendance and team/club need.
Tournament teams are special teams. Tournament teams are selected based on necessity and to balance the team players may be selected from outside of the team.
Each coach must have to complete a security clearance with vulnerable sector search, completed respect in sports course, has a valid coaching ID crd from CMSA and completed a waiver to be able to coach a team. This is the rule set by CMSA.
You might think you are helping the team/coach, you are not, some coaches may think you are actually disrespecting him/her. While the coach in charge is giving his direction a different instruction confuses the player.
Unless you are officially assigned to a team by the club as a coach, you are not allowed to coach from the sidelines or gallery. You SHOULD NOT be on the coaching side of the field./box. You may have noticed, no other team the parents go to the bench.
This is Children's sport. and our children learns from us. We must be on top of our behaviour in front of children. Respecting Coaches, Referee and Opponent are parts of sportsmanship. A Field Martial from each team is mandatory to keep their crowd under control. Players, parents and even teams can be suspended by the CMSA because of individual or group behaviour.
