INTRODUCTION
COMPETITIVE SOCCER – PROFESSIONAL TRAINING – PLAYER DEVELOPMENT

POSITIVE COACHING – GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP - EVERYONE PLAYS® - CUSTOM UNIFORMS

Pacific Soccer Club (PSC) was established in 2000. Our goals are to be successful, both in player development and team results. The results will come due to the growth of the players in both their skills and understanding of the game. This will be the result of a solid TEAM effort, which must include the players, parents and coaching staff. The strength of the team is founded in good communication and understanding between the coaches, players, parents and administrators. We believe in the following:
• Learning is an important part of the game
• Winning isn’t everything
• The family is a critical part of the team experience

THE CLUB, TEAM AND TEAM MEMBERS
THE CLUB AND THE TEAM
Members of the PACIFIC SOCCER CLUB agree to put the Club ahead of the Team. When decisions are made regarding conflicts between the Club and a particular Team, the Club will come first. If conflicts arise between the Club and a Team, the Club Administrator will be responsible to make decisions for the greatest good of the Club and Team. These decisions will be made after gathering all relevant information and consultation with those involved. The Club Administrator's decision will be objective and will be based on their best evaluation of the facts.

THE TEAM AND THE TEAM MEMBERS
Members of the PACIFIC SOCCER CLUB agree to put their Team ahead of the individual Player. If conflicts arise between the Team and a Player or Parent, the Director of Coaching (DOC) or designee will be responsible to make decisions for the greatest good of the Team and Player. These decisions will be made after gathering all relevant information and consultation with those involved. The decision will be objective and will be based on their best evaluation of the facts.

AYSO's Dispute Resolution and Due Process procedures will be followed in matters of conflict.

Dispute Resolution
Parents, Players and Coaches will seek to resolve all disputes in an amicable fashion. Compromise is preferable to more severe forms of resolution.
Coach
TRYOUTS, PLAYER EVALUATION AND SELECTION
TRYOUTS
PSC tryouts will be held annually and are open to all players who meet the age requirements for the team. Each prospect will be given a fair opportunity to tryout for the team. Evaluations will continue to take place during the spring, tournaments and preseason. If the coach deems it necessary, additional tryouts may be held, and qualified players may be added to the team roster at any time in accordance with the league guidelines.

All players must be newly selected each membership year. It is possible that not all the players including returning players who tryout will be selected to a team.

PLAYER EVALUATION AND SELECTION
Player performance will be evaluated by observing the player in skill sessions and game situations.

Our coaches and trainers will base their decisions on four areas of evaluation and they are responsible to make the best decision for the team and players.

Your understanding here is important, just as players and parents have the freedom to choose a Club without unfair pressure and with a full understanding of what is expected, the coaches need the same freedom to decide which players are the best fit for their teams.

The decisions of our coaches are final.

Tryouts, Player Evaluation and Selection
I understand and agree.
PLAYER AND PARENT COMMITMENT AND RESPONSIBILITY
You are not under any pressure to join the team. Instead, we hope that you will consider all of the options and choose what will be best, taking into consideration the player's goals and aspirations as a person and as a soccer player.

We expect our players and parents to honor their commitments both verbal and written; therefore you should make your decisions thoughtfully and carefully. Once your commitment is made, the coach and team members expect your full participation and support for the entire soccer season. Take into account that when you make your commitment, the coach will need to inform other potential players that they did not make the team. A player will not be released from a team during a soccer season unless it is for disciplinary reasons or failure to fulfill their obligations or a season ending injury.

The coaches and trainers will conduct themselves as soccer instructors and mentors. The coach's and trainer's primary responsibility is for the short and long-term growth and development of your son/daughter as a soccer player and to help our players become world-class players who know how to conduct themselves as positive, responsible and successful members of a team. You can expect the coaches and trainers to conduct themselves as positive role models and display appropriate behavior. Your coaches and trainers recognize that they are dealing in an important way with young people and we cannot overlook the impact they have on their player's lives.

At the end of each soccer season the commitment to the team and player is over. You are welcome to tryout for the next season under the same guidelines previously mentioned. A player remains part of their PSC Team and Roster until such time as the California State Soccer Association - South (Cal South) Release/Transfer is completed, processed and approved by the District Commissioner.

The fall soccer season begins with practice and tournaments in July/August, League Play starts in September and continues through December; optional State Tournaments begin in January, February or April, depending on the age group and success of the team. Those U14 and older players will have a break for the high school season (end of November through State/National Cup). The spring soccer season begins with team formation and practice in January/February, league runs from March - May. Some teams will participate in summer tournaments in preparation for the fall season.

As a member of the Team you are responsible for your own performance and conduct. Honesty, communication and reliability will be expected at all times. Each player is to maintain an ethical and healthy lifestyle; any use of drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes is not acceptable to the Team and may result in removal from the Team. In addition, the Team insists that you maintain a positive team attitude and a personal sense of sportsmanship and fair play. At all club or team functions you will be expected to conduct yourself in a respectable manner and to represent your Team and the Club in a positive way.

Parental support and involvement in the Team and Club are essential. You should ensure that your son/daughter attends all team functions (practices, games, tournaments, meetings, fundraising activities, etc.). When there is an unavoidable conflict please inform your coach so any necessary adjustments can be made.

The coach will decide on the practice and training schedule, clinics, camps, tournament participation and playing time after careful consideration of your needs and those of the team.

Player and team development will be given a greater priority over winning. Parents and players must understand this and conduct themselves in a manner consistent with a healthy team environment. Parents are encouraged to communicate and ask questions about their son/daughter's progress at the appropriate times (this is not during a game or in the presence of the other team members). We expect our players to take the initiative, to speak up and communicate for themselves whenever possible.

We will instruct the players to respect the referees’ calls, to ignore unsporting behavior, rough play and poor conditions. We expect our parents and spectators to set the same positive example.

Player and Parent Commitment and Responsibility
AYSO PHILOSOPHIES
EVERYONE PLAYS – Our goal is for kids to play soccer, so we mandate that every player on every team must play at least half of every game.

POSITIVE COACHING – Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment by the players and ultimately leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players.

GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP – We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect, rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO.

PLAYER DEVELOPMENT – We believe that all players should be able to develop their soccer skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as a member of a team, in order to maximize their enjoyment of the game.

OPEN REGISTRATION – PSC requires that any player is eligible to apply for PSC. Players not selected are guaranteed placement on a team in one of the AYSO standard primary programs.

AYSO Philosophies
AYSO PLAYER PLEDGE
In my words and action, I pledge to:

1. Play for the sake of playing a game, not just to please a parent or coach.

2. Always give my best effort and work as hard for my teammates as I do for myself.

3. Treat all players as I would like to be treated.

4. Be a team player and not show off or hog the ball.

5. Be a good sport and acknowledge good plays whether they are made by my team or my opponents.

6. Abide by the Laws of the Game.

7. Cooperate with my coaches, teammates, opponents and the referee.

8. Never argue with or complain about referee calls or decisions.

9. Control my temper when I feel I have been wronged.

10. Remember that the object of the game is to win, but the goal is to enjoy myself.

AYSO Player Pledge
Each Player is to read and understand this pledge.
PARENT CODE OF CONDUCT
As a parent, you play a special role in contributing to the needs and development of youngsters.

Through your encouragement and good example, you can help assure that all the boys and girls learn good sportsmanship and self-discipline.

In AYSO, young people learn to work together, to sacrifice for the good of the team, to enjoy winning and deal appropriately with defeat - all while becoming physically fit and healthy.
Best of all, they have fun.


SUPPORT YOUR CHILD
Supporting your child by giving encouragement and showing interest in their team is very important.

Help your child work toward skill improvement and good sportsmanship in every game.

Teach your child that hard work and an honest effort are often more important than victory - that way your child will always be a winner despite the outcome of the game!


ALWAYS BE POSITIVE
Parents serve as role models for their children. Become aware of this and work to be a positive role model. Applaud good plays by your child's team as well as good plays by the opposing team.

Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from youth sports activities.


REMEMBER: YOUR CHILD WANTS TO HAVE FUN
Remember that your child is the one playing soccer, not you. It's very important to let children establish their own goals - to play the game for themselves. Take care not to impose your own standards and goals on them.

Don't put too heavy a burden on your child to win games. Surveys reveal that 72% of children would rather play for a losing team than ride the bench for a winning team.

Children play for the fun of playing.


REINFORCE POSITIVE BEHAVIOR
Positive reinforcement is the best way to help your child achieve their goals and their natural fear of failure. Nobody likes to make mistakes. If your child does make one, remember it's all part of learning, so encourage your child's efforts and point out the good things your child accomplished.


DON'T BE A SIDELINE COACH OR REFEREE
Coaches volunteer their time to help make your child's youth soccer experience a positive one. They need your support too.

Spectators are to refrain from coaching or refereeing from the sidelines.

For more information please visit http://www.ayso.org/parents/parents_abc.aspx

Parent Code of Conduct
SIDELINE BEHAVIOR
There will be NO sideline coaching by parents or spectators.
It is important players are not confused during practices and games and are only given one set of instructions, which will be from their coaches and trainers.
No matter how good your intentions are, we insist that you refrain from yelling at or instructing your son/daughter or the players from either team before, during or after the game.
Your support and encouragement are welcome and appreciated, especially by the players.

We understand soccer can be a very passionate sport, however the greatest lesson we can teach our children is RESPECT. So there will be NO yelling, complaining or showing dissent toward the referees before, during or after the game.

Parents and Spectators shall remain on the designated side of the field;
Parents and Spectators shall remain outside the "Technical Area," this is the area dedicated to coaches and players, it is 10 yards on either side of the halfway line.
Parents and Spectators shall remain 3 yards off the touchline and 18 yards from the goal line to allow room for the players and referees.
Parents and Spectators shall not be behind the goal line.

Sideline Coaching
I will leave the instructing to the coaches.
Referee Respect
I will show respect for the referees and refrain from yelling at them and dissenting their calls.
Parent Behavior
I promise not to overreact to unsporting behavior or rough play; to refrain from complaining about poor conditions; to refrain from criticizing the coaches, trainers and players; and to avoid blaming others for our team's results.
Misconduct
A parent or spectator that is warned for failing to act in a responsible manner will result in a minimum one-game suspension. An expulsion will result in a minimum two-game suspension.

AYSO is a volunteer-based organization. Volunteering helps to make our AYSO Programs including PSC very affordable. AYSO operates in a business manner, but our volunteers ensure that every child plays and has an opportunity to participate in a sport they can enjoy for life.

It takes thousands of hours to run a successful region; with registration, team formation, uniform distribution, scheduling, coaching, refereeing, instructing, mentoring, organizing try-outs, field set up and breakdown; just to name a few. PSC parents know the benefits of the AYSO program, they are among the most vital and experienced volunteers we have; many are coaches, referees or board members.

The League has very specific requirements for game day fields. PSC will obtain field allocations from each Area and submit those that serve the greatest community. Ultimately the League decides on the use of the fields and game schedules.

Please be a good host and a respectful guest; be courteous around homes neighboring the fields and clean up before you leave.

Field Allocations
I understand that the field allocations are based on the greatest community served, however the League ultimately decides on the use of the fields and schedules.
