The Board of Directors of Medway Youth Soccer would like to address the issue of disruptive and disrespectful behavior by players in the Travel program.
Medway Youth Soccer expects that players will conduct themselves in a mature, respectful manner. Players should arrive at both practices and games prepared to play and listen to instructions from their coach. Disruptive and disrespectful behavior by any player or players cannot and will not be permitted to negatively impact the opportunity for the rest of the team to develop their skills and pursue their interest in the game. Similarly, our coaches, who commit so much of their time and energy to their teams, should not and will not be expected to tolerate such behavior.
Coaches have been instructed to address any issues promptly and directly with the player or players involved, and, if necessary, with those player’s parents. If the situation warrants, the respective Girls or Boys Travel Director will become involved, and if necessary, refer the situation to the Board for disciplinary action.
We would ask that every coach communicate these expectations to their teams and every parent review these expectations with their child.
