OPEN LETTER TO ALL STSC PLAYERS, COACHES, PARENTS AND SUPPORTERS
As we approach the final stages of this 2016 season, I want to congratulate our many players, coaches and the many supportive parents of all our teams both competitive and recreational.
This season we have continued to implement our version of the Long Term Player Development Programme. We refer to this as the “Blueprint”. At its heart, we strive to help all our players become the best they can be.
WE have made some remarkable progress by following our Blueprint but we need patience to see things through.
It is vital that we all realise how important our own behaviour is in relation to the development of our young players. We are all mentors to these players. We must never forget how much impact we have on our impressionable and trusting young players.
So as we near the end of the Season, please take a moment to analyze how you came across to these young minds.
For Coaches – please treat your players with patience, empathy and tact. Ensure you are always positive and encouraging.
For Parents and Supporters – do not attempt to give direction to your child during practices/games as it can be confusing to the players and undermines our coaches. Do not criticize your children, other teammates, the coach, the officials or opposing players. This type of behaviour sets a poor example for all young players of sportsmanship and respectful conduct. Moreover, you run the risk of being embarrassed in front of your child and other adults present by being directed to leave the pitch and possibly restricted from returning.
For Our Players - Team spirit is everything!! WE win together/ WE lose together. WE need to treat each other respectfully. WE can all achieve our potential if we support each other, help each other and treat everyone with dignity.
Congratulations on your achievements this Season!! WE hope to see all of you out again next year and possibly throughout the Fall and Winter when we run our off-season programs.
Yours in Football (Soccer to you Canadians!)
Phil Trueman (Head Coach, STSC)
