Youth sports are supposed to be fun...for the children. Unfortunately, many parents and fans don't realize that their actions, whether verbal or nonverbal, can have a lasting emotional effect on children. Too many children are leaving sports activities because the fun is unfairly taken away by adults.
By following this simple code you can help reinforce that youth sports are all about...BEING FUN FOR EVERYONE.
The examples set by our coaches are one of the most influential examples our children will encounter in their young lives. Recognizing the critical role that coaches play, it is imperative that we serve as the proper role models for our players.
"Teaching Life Lessons Through The Beautiful Game"
Dulwich College Shanghai
The Dulwich EarthQuakes believe that there is much more to soccer than just winning games. While winning is important in any competitive sport, the idea of developing a player's "character" is our highest priority. This is especially true at the younger age groups as the foundation that is laid now for these young players will help guide them through the rest of their soccer career, wherever that may lead.
The goal is to train these young athletes so that they are well-positioned to succeed in College, University and beyond, both athletically and scholastically. To help achieve that goal we have implemented a Code of Conduct for Players, Parents and Coaches. These Codes are designed to enhance the player's experience and maximize their ability to learn and enjoy the great game of soccer.
Please take the time to read through each of these with your children and truly understand how important they are for the good of the game.
