Commissioner's Notes

In Coach Training we usually end the sessions with a slide that reads 'The best teacher of the game is the game itself, let them play.'

It can be tough as Coaches and Parents to not direct the kids. Not to point out everything we see or direct them to do what we think they should do. It is mostly well meaning but we take away one of the benefits of youth sports and child development. While Kids need guidance, they also need to experiment, and sometimes failing at a task is a better teacher than just being told what to do the whole time.

Whether you're a coach or parent, encourage your players to get creative on the field. If it works, congratulate them. If it didn't work, then when the time is right (later) ask what they saw and what they might do different. Even some of the younger kids will get excited about telling you why they did something or what they saw. At those moments the kids take ownership of their game, and that is as exciting as great goals and stops.

This is a game for the kids, let them play!

Enjoy Match Week 3!

Volunteer of the Week

Coach Juan Salcedo: Coach Juan volunteered to coach both an 8U Boys and a 14U Boys team, even though his kids no longer play in the region. On top of that he always jumps in to help as a Referee on Saturdays and Sundays and usually helps with the final clean-up of Joe Walker. In a time when volunteer Coaches and Referees are hard to find, Juan is a tremendous asset to AYSO and a great example for players and fellow volunteers. Thank you!

Board Member of the Week

Nelson Brown: In the past year Nelson stepped in as our Child & Volunteer Protection Advocate (CVPA). A position that requires patience, communication and knowledge of AYSO procedures to help certify and protect our players and volunteers. Nelson is also our Field Set-up master and had the extra challenge of setting up 15 fields of different sizes at 4 different sites, all during a record breaking heat wave, Both are challenging behind the scenes jobs and we thank Nelson for all the work he's put in to make this season happen.
