United We Play! What do you need to know? You do not have to be a soccer star to be a good coach. It just takes common sense & commitment to be there for the players and to communicate with parents. Being on time is essential as all games begin on the hour with a 10-minute discretion period at the start. All of our games are officiated by certified referees and should be respected. Their calls are final. All of our volunteer coaches have to abide by the MYSL Code of Conduct. Disciplinary measures will result if anyone argues with the referee after being warned. Abusive behaviour, gestures, etc. are not going to be accepted.
United We Play! You should get to know your Convener. If you have any problems that you cannot deal with, your Convener can offer guidance. If the Convener cannot deal with the issue(s), it will be escalated upwards to the Head Coach. A detailed template will be sent to you to give you more helpful tips on communicating with parents and how to make the season easy and fun. Uniforms consisting of a shirt, shorts, and socks will be delivered to Olive Grove School and packed in a Coaches’ bag for each team with all the tools you will need. Please ensure that you take care of the contents as the balls and practice cones are to be returned at the end of the season.
United We Play! Team lists will be sent to all coaches by Friday, May 8 th via Uniforms, bags, etc. to be picked up by coaches from their Conveners here at 12 p.m. next Sunday, May 10. If you cannot be there, you need to arrange to get them from your Convener. coaches need to touch base with their parents right away via and phone to introduce themselves and communicate the guidelines as well as to inform them of where to get the uniforms (suggestion – get them to come on Sunday at 1 p.m.)

United We Play! Practices We do not have compulsory practices but it is encouraged. For U6 and U8, minutes before the game is great. It gets kids there on time (this is always a problem) and you can go over some fundamental skills like dribbling, passing, and soccer concepts, etc. For older divisions, coaches may want to do an hour practice before games or a different day if you can get your parents to all agree.
United We Play! We are here to have fun while helping foster soccer skills in our youth within an Islamic Environment. We also have a division that caters towards adults so if you haven’t registered, do so ASAP! We have tried touch upon a few items but cannot go through everything on coaching, the dynamics of team- building, and creating good relations with your parents. We will be having another session next Sunday from 10 am to 12 followed by the distribution of the uniforms, etc.
United We Play! Q & A Session Feel free to ask away. If you prefer you can also contact your Convener directly or Jaafer at OR x. Jazzak’Allah Khairan.
