Berlin Youth Football 2021 Season Parent & Player Contract
As parents and spectators, you have a great influence on children’s enjoyment and success in football. All children who participate in football do so because they enjoy the sport and it is fun for them. However good a child becomes at football within this organization, parents and spectators should remember that positive encouragement will contribute to:
Children enjoying participating
A sense of personal achievement
Improving the child’s skills and techniques
As parents/spectator’s, your expectations and attitudes have a significant bearing on a child’s attitudes towards
other players, officials, and coaches.
Berlin Youth Football strongly encourages you to:
Respect the referee’s decision
Avoid coaching from the sidelines during games and practice
Respect the volunteer coaches
Avoid using foul or abusive language towards players, officials, or coaches
Never ridicule a player for making a mistake or for losing. Praise them or keep quiet
Give attention to each of the children involved in football or cheerleading- not just the most talented
Applaud the opposition as well as your own team
Remember young people are involved for their enjoyment, not yours
