Section 1

1.1

What the DM is

The Director's Manual (DM) contains all the organizational and technical information needed for managing the JSS International Academy. The Managers of the various areas (Organizational, Sports, Technical) will find useful information in it to share with the entire Team to help organize, manage and deal with every aspect of the JSS International Academy in a uniform and consistent way.

1.2

Who uses the DM

The DM will be delivered to the Organizational Manager, who will be responsible for its safekeeping. The DM will be the tool to use in training the Team, in the day-to-day activities of the JSS International Academy, and when the school closes at the end of the season. The Organizational Manager will show, explain, illustrate and disseminate the contents to the Team members and will always strive to protect the DM from possible theft, imitation or improper use.

1.3

How to use the DM

The Mangers of the various areas (Organizational, Sports, Technical) must be entirely familiar with the contents of the DM; therefore the Manual must be read in its entirety and consulted frequently. The various members of the Team will receive only the parts that pertain strictly to them, but they can be informed about the entire contents by the Organizational Manager.


1.4

When to use the DM

The DM will be used during the initial JSS International Academy briefing, when people will be selected to cover the various roles of responsibility. The Manual will clarify the policy, content and methods to be adopted in the organization, and will be used to explain how to manage all the activities and any emergency situations that may arise, providing the technical and managerial tools needed for unification and organizational clarity.

Section 2 Jobs and responsibilities

2.1

Introduction

The Job Descriptions describe the responsibilities and tasks that each member of the JSS International Academy organization should carry out. These are general guidelines, but should nevertheless be strived for and pursued. The professionalism of the Team and the service is also and above all the result of paying careful attention to the details of the environment the Team works in. No project is entirely successful unless it has unity of purpose and goals. Therefore, the same figures that operate in different places must follow and pursue the same principles, protocols and spheres of work so that the JSS International Academy meets top quality standards.


2.2

JSS International Academy Organizational Manager

In addition to taking care of the internal relations of the organization, the JSS International Academy Organizational Manager must also look after the organization’s external relations. The JSS International Academy Organizational Manager will receive his instructions exclusively from the JSS management. All the local administration and all the figures representing the institutions of the JSS International Academy locality will have official contacts with the JSS International Academy Organizational Manager, Sports Manager and Technical Manager, who will in turn report in detail to the JSS general management. The JSS International Academy Organizational Managers for the

·

The JSS International Academy Organizational Manager will be responsible for the entire Team image. Therefore, the Team and all of the groups of boys must wear the clothing they receive at the beginning of the year in the same way. Moreover, the uniforms must always be worn in a manner that is fitting to the desired image of the school. How and when to wear the various pieces of clothing will be decided on the basis of practicality, the availability of the users, and the temperature of the surroundings where the activity is taking place.


2.3

Child Protection

2.3.1

Understanding it

In these years of research and practical application, the Juventus Soccer Schools University has developed a method - the JSS MODEL - for teaching soccer during the various stages of a child’s life, from the early years to the phase of physical maturity. The objective is to create an educational project having innovative characteristics and teaching methods which, starting from the sport as a creative game, involves young people in a process of total personal growth in a serene, safe and trustworthy environment

Children and their growth are the focus of attention at JSS. This is why there is an area of research and training within the Study Centre that specifically deals with child protection and the ethical - behavioral standards that the team must meet. The point of departure for the need to formalize this area is the fact that the soccer coach, like all operators who interact with children, finds himself in front of children every day for whom he has maximum responsibility, a responsibility he must be keenly aware of. Families and the very law itself on Child Protection not only demand utmost awareness, but especially the application of behavioral norms consistent with the values that are asked to be represented, i.e. respect, fairness and good behavior. In daily practice, you often feel most prepared for what you know most about as a soccer coach. However, there is an entire sphere that is often ignored by simply relying on your common sense, common sense that is crucial so that all the rest can be done in the best possible way: respect for the psychophysical integrity of the child. Respecting the psychophysical integrity of the child means taking care of his complete mental and physical being; it means ensuring that he does not lack anything from a physical and mental standpoint. If there is a child, we must never be the reason for his needing anything.


This is the true premise we need to start from. If we do not pay the strictest attention to this point, all of the rest of the work will become meaningless. The aim of all those working in Juventus Soccer Schools is to encourage a process of growth of the child as a whole in a healthy, peaceful, secure and reliable environment, by giving him maximum autonomy. Making our children autonomous means regarding them as people who need to acquire independence to become able to take care of themselves and to move in the world in a critical and mature way. You must never overstep the boundaries of the role you have been called upon to fill: being coaches does not mean distancing yourself from the kids, creating tension on the field, nor does it mean being their parents. If the child shows signs of any unease that you think goes beyond the training and his presence on the field, you should involve the person who has full responsibility and those who have the appropriate skills. The training activities of Juventus University originate with the aim of making all those who come from other situations aware of the importance and delicacy of the discipline and of the rigor in practicing the profession in environments that foresee the presence of children, as well as conveying the principles and values that are essential for the diffusion of "real" sport, for which Juventus Soccer Schools demands that you work with: respect, loyalty, good behavior and fairness. For that purpose, JSS has created a series of step-by-step procedures to serve as a guide and reference for child protection. They contain information and methods for managing unpleasant surprises, but above all for preventing them from ever arising. Therefore, the behavioral policy is a useful guide for dealing with the world of children by offering suggestions for the correct and peaceful management of young athletes.


2.3.2

Applying it

The JSS International Academy Organizational Manager will be the “Person Responsible for the Policy�, and must see to it that all members of the team always carry out the norms for Child Protection during the specific project. The Person Responsible must:

-

-

Ensure that the entire team has been well-prepared on the subject and has a clear understanding of the Child Protection Policy
