Each coaching term will expire at the end of the season. Coaches must re-apply each season if wishing to continue coaching.
All Coaches are required to take the offered coaching clinics.
All coaches are required to be at most games (80%).
All coaches are required to complete a Child Abuse Registry Check and have an up-to-date Criminal Records Check BEFORE the season starts .
As a coach, the following should be adhered to when dealing with young players:
- Promote fun and enjoyment
- Set examples of good behaviour by not smoking, drinking or using foul and abusive language
- Have realistic ambitions for the children
- Be aware of issues such as overuse, types of injury, maturation rate, et cetera
- Know the rules and respect the decisions of officials
- Help to provide appropriate dress and equipment
- Praise the efforts of your team and your opponents
- Make children aware of a healthy lifestyle (e.g., eating habits, sleep, activity)
- Take the stress out of the game, encourage fair play and skill development
- Positively encourage; never ridicule or shout at children
Coaches should avoid any situation which may lead to allegations of abuse. These would include:
- Being left alone with a child or children, particularly within changing rooms. Encourage an open environment and enlist the help of parents or others.
- There should always be a male and female coach/adult in attendance if teams are of mixed gender.
- Proper provision must be made for soccer trips that involve overnight stays.
- Avoid unnecessary physical contact with children when demonstrating.
- It is unwise to spend time alone with children anywhere (e.g., the car, the changing room, walking home, et cetera)
