Player/Parent Agreement

 


PLAYER/PARENT AGREEMENT

Over the years we have learned for a club to be successful there needs to be clear communication between the club, teams, coaches, players, and parents. This agreement is our way of explaining our expectations of you as a member of TempesT FC / Evolution TFC. (TFC / ETFC)

1.        The Player, Team, Club

Once you commit to join TFC / ETFC, you are part of a club, not just one team.  Members of TFC / ETFC agree to put the club ahead of the team.  In most cases you will play on one team the entire season, but you could be asked to play or guest play on another team during your membership.  Club decisions will be made by the appropriate member of the TFC / ETFC Staff.  Players are expected to be committed to the club for the entire season.

2.        Expectations of the Individual Player

During the soccer season the team and its players will participate in training sessions, league games and tournaments.  Players are expected to arrive on time with required equipment (shoes, proper uniform, soccer ball, shin guards, etc…) and be ready to train or play.  If players will not be able to attend an event or will be late, it is expected that they let the coach know.  Layers are expected to give their best effort at each training session, game and have a positive attitude, TEAM attitude.

3.        Coaching Decisions

Coaches will make decisions on game line-ups, positions, playing time, etc… Players and parents are expected to respect those decisions and players should be positive in fulfilling the role they are asked to perform for the team.  If parents have questions regarding decisions that were made during a game, they are to observer the 24 hour rule and wait at least until the next day to address the coach. Parents and coaches are always expected to address each other in an appropriate manner.

4.        Playing Time

Playing time is decided by the coach.  Coaches will determine how players can increase their playing time and communicate that to the parents and players.

5.        Parents and Team Commitment

Parental support and involvement in the club is essential.  If your son or daughter is selected and chooses to commit herself to TTFC / ETFC, your commitment is also necessary.  If players are to make a commitment to the club and their team, parents must see to it that players attend all possible club and team functions.  At times, conflicts cannot be avoided and other important events take precedence.  The club requires communication, planning, and understanding so we can minimize conflicts.  When players are going to miss a training session or match, it is best to let the coach know at least a day in advance as well, as all training sessions are planned in advance.

6.        Overall Behavior

We expect our players, parents and coaches to possess characteristics such as respect, responsibility, discipline, leadership, dedication, and integrity.  Coaches will instruct players to ignore adverse conditions, such as poor calls made by officials, foul language, rough play, cheating, poor weather, negative behavior by opponents, parent coaching from the sidelines and focus on what they can control, such as their effort and attitude.  We expect our parents to have this same approach.  Parents and player are to adhere to the TFC / ETFC Code of Conduct.

7.        Sideline Behavior

Your vocal support and positive encouragement are very much welcome on the sidelines.  However, no matter how good your intentions are, giving instructions to players from the parent’s sidelines is not allowed.  We also insist that parents refrain from addressing the officials. At no time is a parent to address a player, coach, parent (from either team) or ref in a manner that is not representative of TFC / ETFC. Violation of this could be grounds for dismissal from the club.

8.        Uniform & Equipment Policy

All players are expected to wear the designated club uniform.

9.        Financial Commitment

Parents are expected to adhere to the payment schedule set at the beginning of each season.

10.     Optional Events & Programs

Throughout the year TFC / ETFC will offer optional programs such as indoor soccer, camps and winter training.  These programs are provided in order to aid in player development and will usually incur an additional fee. TFC / ETFC will also organize events, such as parties and clinics that are optional.
