Players Respect and Culture

Arrive at training 15 minutes before start time.
Bags lined up facing field at training and games.
Players must shake hands and politely greet All trainers/coaches/parent coaches/referees on arrival and when they leave.
No shooting if players arrive early. Juggling/moves/short passing in pairs.
If player is late, they must apologize to the trainer before entering the session.
If pinnies are used in a session, they must be worn correctly.
All teams must be in training uniform, no hoodies wrapped around waist, sleeves hanging down past fingertips, jackets unzipped flapping around.
Players leave in an orderly manner, no kicking balls around the trainers work area, no messing around, no litter left on field.

Parent Philosophy

All parents to view 'ILWYP' video – CLICK HERE TO WATCH
NO coaching from the side line at games or training i.e Pass! Shoot! Get wide!
Late players do not start games.
Communicate to the coach in a timely manner if a player cannot attend a game or training session.
Please be supportive of our coaches, it can be very damaging to a players attitude if they overhear you commenting negatively on a substitution or tactical decision.
Please be mindful that you should be a role model on the sidelines.
If you have an issue with a coach do not under any circumstances approach the coach when emotions are high at a game in front of other parents and players. You must wait at least 24 hours before contacting the coach to discuss your concern.
Players positions not guaranteed. Positions will be based on what that player needs to develop and NOT to win games.
Equal playing time for all players in 5v5 games and 7v7 games. 9v9 is equal across the season and 11v11 games based on training attendance, attitude, effort and performance.
