 Players/Parents/Coaches Conduct Statement

The philosophy
of the Chicago Inter Soccer is to help young players become the best soccer players they can be, while learning the Club's philosophy of "Hard work equals success."
Players must bring a ball, shin guards, water, and a serious attitude to learn and train hard to each and every practice.


Practices are MANDATORY.  Please do not expect to play -- unless you each attend each scheduled practice with your team.  Players may make up a missed practice by attending a practice another day.

Players must realize that this is not recreational soccer.  Our training is the highest level of elite and developmental training anywhere in the country. All of our trainers/coaches are professional or ex professional players who have played at the highest level.

Players must always reflect respect for all authority figures, including coaches, trainers, referees, administrators, and, above all, parents. All coaching and player allocation decisions (team assignments) are made solely by the professional coaching staff of the club.

Parents
must conduct themselves properly at all times when players from the club are involved. The club and the coaches will not tolerate embarrassments and indiscretions at games and tournaments. 
Inform coach(s) of any health concerns or injuries of your child.

Discuss
concerns or issues of disagreement with their child’s coach first. It is suggested and expected that a discussion of disagreement be held away from other team members or parents. After speaking with the coach and if you are still unsatisfied, contact the age group director. If after speaking to the age group director and still unsatisfied, contact the club President.
 
Parents are asked NOT to coach during the match from anywhere at the field. Parents are spectators, nothing but words of encouragement are expected from them.
Coaches will abide by the Chicago Inter Soccer Club’s mission statement, the laws of the game, CISC guidelines, and its sponsors, organizations and affiliates. The philosophy and purpose of youth coaching is to teach soccer skills, promote and display good sportsmanship, and to conduct practices and games in a manner safe for players.
Encourage good sportsmanship before, during, and after a game. Coaches are expected to be positive role models for our youth athletes.

Demonstrate respect for players, parents, and referees. Refrain from arguments or negative comments to referees, opposing teams, and coaches. Be a positive role model and be a positive influence for the players, parents, and the soccer club.

Insure fair playing time for all players. Coaches may take into consideration attendance at practices and player attitudes for playing time.
Discipline players in a fair and consistent manner.
Deal with player injuries in a timely manner.
Refrain from using inappropriate language to children.
Provide guidance in teaching a proper progression of skills and tactics to their respective age group team that is fun and challenging.

A coach may be terminated if he/she does not abide by the statements above or within CISC rules, guidelines, and principles. Common sense will prevail for issues or concerns not listed.

The club encourages all coaches to continue their soccer coaching education in believing that educated coaches become better coaches who produce stronger players thus evolving into stronger teams and those making CISC a better club for all of its youth participants.
