Player Pledge

January 29th, 2012

Adapted from HVAA and the codes of teams from around the US.

I promise to:

  • Have a positive attitude
  • Demonstrate good sportsmanship at all times
  • Be generous when we win; gracious when we lose; respectful always
  • Give encouragement to my teammates
  • Respect all officials and coaches and accept their decisions without question
  • Abide by my coach’s decision regarding positioning and playing time
  • Attend and be prompt to all games and practices
  • Learn and obey the Laws of the Game and the rules of my league
  • Practice individual soccer skills on my own time several times per week
  • Notify the coach as soon as I know if I will be late for or unable to attend a game or practice
  • Approach the coach with any soccer related questions
  • Keep up with my school work so that I may play soccer
  • Learn about the importance of fitness for my own health and safety on and off the field
  • Work hard at practice and games to improve my skills and my knowledge of the game of soccer. I understand the amount of playing time I receive in games will be based on my skills, determination in practice, effort in games, punctuality and attitude. I know that I may receive more or less playing time than my teammates
  • Always support my teammates on and off the field
  • Try to be the best that I can be at all times for myself and my teammates
