I could have sworn I posted about this earlier. In light of the recent release of the USSF Best Practices for Coaching Soccer, I wanted to pass along another extremely useful educational tool for parents of youth soccer players.
- Basic Equipment
- Being Supportive Parents
- Red Flags for Parents
- Being Good Soccer Parents
- Surprises and Needs of Players
- How to deal with Practice, Games, and even the Ride Home
If you are a league administrator and you haven’t seen this yet, I encourage you to review it and send it on to your parents. If you are a soccer parent or even a parent with kids in any sport – this is a great resource.
It is an excellent document and they even have an online quiz parents can take at the end to earn a Certificate of Completion. We sent this out to our parents this season and got very positive feedback.
