Notifying your Players

What Your Players and Their Parents Expect to Know from You

Notifying Players

Notify your youth soccer players that they are on your team!

Players and their parents won’t know what team they’re on or who their coach is until they are called. Therefore, coaches must contact each player on their team by the posted deadline to provide the parents and the kids with the following information:

Basic Information

  • First Practice Date: Provide the date, time, and location
  • Second Practice Date: Provide the date, time and location
  • All other Practices: The practice days; such as, Mondays and Fridays
  • Practice Locations: It may seem redundant, but it helps to repeat this, especially if your two practices take place in different locations.
  • Your Name and Phone Number: Always leave your name and your phone number with the player or their parents so that you can be contacted if they have questions or need to tell you their child won't make a particular practice. Make a note of this on your roster of any kids that have called in. You may optionally provide them with an email address and a phone number they can send text messages.
  • A Web Link! Please instruct your players and parents to visit http://RecSoccer.Info.

Additional, Helpful Information

At practices, it is helpful if you remind the players and parents to:

  • Bring extra soccer balls to practice -- all that they got!
  • Remind them not to park in the grassy areas
  • Fields 1A and 1B: DO NOT PICK UP PLAYERS, OR DROP THEM OFF, FROM THE MAIN DRIVE!
  • Make sure that every player gets back into the car with the same hoodies, jackets, soccer balls, water bottles, and whatever else they brought with them -- if not, that means they left something behind
