    HOUSE LEAGUE COMMITTEE MESSAGE

    Coaching is a very rewarding experience especially considering you touch the lives of many children by helping them to enjoy a sport such as soccer. Saltfleet Stoney Creek Soccer owes a great deal of its success to the volunteer coaches. We have provided this Coaches Guide as a reference tool; please share this information with your players and parents combined with the online weekly practice samples found on our website: http://www.saltfleetstoneycreeksc.ca/en-us/coaches.aspx Longer-Term Player Development (LTPD) is mandated by the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA), so the question is not whether we do this, but how. We must do it well to get it “right” so it benefits our young players and the futures of soccer in Ontario.

    If you stress FUN, FITNESS, and FAIRPLAY you can't go wrong!

    Thank you for your all your time and commitment that goes into coaching, Saltfleet

    Stoney Creek Soccer Club would not be as successful without coaches who volunteer

    their time.

    With appreciation, H.L. Committee

    Director: Nadia Tornifoglia - Recreational Director Committee Members: George Sarnelli Lorenzo Pontillo Maria Di Loreto Bert Northe Mike Naccarato Brian Carey|

    MISSION STATEMENT The Saltfleet Stoney Creek Soccer Club grassroots program is dedicated to providing an

    YOUR ROLE AS A COACH

    People become coaches for many reasons. Some coaches step forward, some are asked to help. No

    matter how or why, all coaches have the same roles. You will be a teacher, a leader, an organizer, and

    sometimes will even act as a counselor.

    Think back to some of the lessons some of your coaches taught you. Perhaps you remember the

    importance of trying your best all the time or how important team goals and sportsmanship were.

    Perhaps you remember learning new things. That’s why you’re here. When your reasons for coaching

    match the needs and development level of your athletes, everyone can win.

    In your role as a teacher, you will be asked to share your knowledge of the sport and prepare athletes to

    play by improving fitness and developing skills specific to your sport.

    In your role as a leader, you will make many decisions, to motivate your athletes and help them set and

    attain goals.

    In your role as an organizer, you will manage practice and game schedules for the team, plan and

    evaluate practices and evaluate athletes.

    In your role as counselor, you will listen to and provide guidance and support for your athletes.

    It is important to understand athletes, like coaches, participate for different reasons. Some enjoy the sensation of speed, power, or grace. Some athletes just want to be with their friends, or part of a team (social reason). Some athletes want to win, to improve themselves or advance to high levels in their sport (achievement reasons). Match your reasons for coaching with the reasons that athletes participate.

    LONG TERM PLAYER DEVELOPMENT

    Under the CSA’s leadership, LTPD can provide the framework for high quality programs that ensure enjoyable lifelong playing opportunities for players of all levels of ability, as well as development pathways for elite players who pursue excellence. The first three stages of LTPD encourage physical literacy for all players, regardless of their abilities or disabilities, and correspond to the ages prior to the adolescent growth spurt (PHV). Stages four, five and six focus on developing excellence and correspond to PHV’s onset and aftermath. Stage seven encourages lifelong physical activity, and players may choose to enter this stage at any time in their playing career. The LTPD program:

    • Eliminates gaps in the player development system. • Guides planning for optimal athlete performance at all stages. • Provides a framework for program alignment and integration, from volunteer club

    coaches to national and professional teams. • Follows scientific principles and practical coaching experiences.

    Benefits for coaches & clubs:

    • Information and education on effective coaching and practice methods. • Guidelines for appropriate game structures. • Guidelines on appropriate competition levels. • Established pathways for player development for all levels of ability and ambition. • Affirmation of best practices for coaches and club administrators.

    Game Leader Program

    The game leader program is an introduction to “officiating” in children's soccer games. The main role of a game leader is to keep the game moving while limiting stoppages and assisting players with all restarts, without blowing a whistle. Game leaders will be sensitive to the age of the children understanding that they are learning, showing patience and flexibility to ensure all players are involved and having fun. The game leader can be a club representative, coach, parent, player or a beginning or senior referee. The game leader should always be approachable and enthusiastic. Creating a positive, fun safe environment for children to play in will help in the children enjoy the experience and therefore be happy to return to participate more. The role of a typical game official has changed at these young ages from being the adult in the middle who blows a whistle when a law has been broken, to being a person who can communicate effectively and appropriately with children, can create a fun, positive learning environment and assist them in their understanding of the game.
