SIDELINE CULTURE SET AN EXAMPLE FOR OUR PLAYERS

´22

//////

We believe that a positive gameday experience is critical to the health of youth soccer. • A positive sideline culture will keep more players playing. • A positive sideline culture will keep more referees refereeing. • A positive sideline culture will keep more coaches coaching. Most importantly, it creates an enviroment most beneficial to the players.

Code of Conduct / Match Feedback

Congratulations to Prior Lake SC and Minnesota Thunder Academy for winning The Sideline Project contest.

RESPECT THE REF HELP US BUILD A POSITIVE CULTURE

´22

//////

Coaches should GREET the referee at EVERY match. Thank them for coming. Set the tone for the culture of the match. • There is a referee shortage. We need to encourage our referees to stay part of the game, instead of giving them reasons to leave. • Referees will make mistakes. They are learning, just like our players. • Decisions are made in the moment and are final. Please understand that angles critical to decision making, and your angle might have differed from the angle of the referee. • Be empathetic. The referee is a son, daughter, mother, father or grandparent. What if they were yours? • Perspective is important. Ten years from now, your child will remember the friendships they made and their love for the game. They won’t remember a call in a specific match. Please help us be a part of the solution by creating a match day experience that is supportive of EVERYONE.
