Expectations



What We Expect from Coaches

  • A coach's #1 responsibility is the health and safety of all participants. Coaches will never place the value of winning over the safety and welfare of the players.
  • Coaches will be positive role models and set the standard for sportsmanship.
  • Coaches will keep the sport in proper perspective with each player's other responsibilities: family, school, other sports, etc.
  • Coaches will be sensitive to each child's individual developmental needs and strive to have each player reach his/her full potential.
  • Coaches will develop each player's appreciation for the game. Players will have fun and receive positive, constructive feedback.
  • Coaches will treat officials, all players, opposing coaches and parents with respect at all times.
  • Coaches are role models and shall display the expected behavior for parents and players to follow.
  • Coaches will develop structured weekly training sessions tailored to the specific needs of the whole team and evaluate the team's performance in subsequent games.
  • Coaches will provide a one-on-one 15-minute evaluation of each player at the conclusion of the season to provide feedback and focus areas for improvement.
  • Coaches will hold a team (parents and players) meeting in the fall before the start of the season to review expectations and other issues related to the team and upcoming season.
  • Coaches must be licensed by the IYSA with a miniumum of 4½ hours of age-appropriate Coaching Education program.
  • Our team represents the Dundee Township and Huntley Park Districts when we are at home games, and we are representatives of the entire Dundee/Huntley area communities when we are at away games. Our bench and spectator areas will be clean and free of water bottles, candy wrappers and other debris when we leave practice and game sites.

Heat United SC's follows the Illinois Soccer Coaches Association (ISCA) Code of Conduct which follows FIFA's Code of Conduct.


What We Expect from Parents

  • Parents are responsible for reading, signing and submitting the Parent Contract (PDF) to the team coach.
  • Parents will support their player(s) at all times. Remember that they are trying their best and will sometimes make mistakes. They need your encouragement and support. Spectators are a vital part of player's attitudes.
  • Parents will get their player(s) to practices and games on time. Preparing for a meaningful practice or game is a process that takes time. Give your player(s) the courtesy of the time required to put on his/her game face and be at 100%.
  • Parents will treat officials, all players, all coaches and other parents with respect at all times.
  • Parents will avoid any confrontation with game officials or other parents. We are here to build soccer skills, promote soccer appreciation and to have fun. A bad call by a referee or an obnoxious opposing parent will very rarely, if ever, determine the outcome of a game.
  • Parents will observe the 24 hour rule and will wait 24 hours following a game before discussing issues with a coach or trainer that may be controversial or emotionally charged. These types of discussions should be done in person or at the very least over the phone. Please do not attempt to discuss issues or concerns through emails. Emails should be used for informational purposes only.
  • Parents will only engage in discussions regarding their own children or the overall team. At no point should parent try to discuss other children with the trainers.
  • Our team represents the Dundee Township and Huntley Park Districts when we are at home games, and we are representatives of the entire Dundee/Huntley area communities when we are at away games. Our bench and spectator areas will be clean and free of water bottles, candy wrappers and other debris when we leave practice and game sites.

What We Expect from Players

  • Players will strive to play their best regardless of the score or the behavior of opponents and fans.
  • Players will practice hard, play hard and have fun!
  • Players will pay attention to and follow all directions given by coaches and assistant coaches. Coaches hate talking to themselves!
  • Players will attend practice if they expect to play—it's not optional.
  • Players will arrive on time. For practices: on time means on the field dressed at start time (not in the parking lot getting shoes & shin guards on). For games: each player should arrive 30 minutes before game time.
  • If, for any reason, you cannot make a game or a practice, a phone call/email to the coach or the team manager is expected from the player. If Mom or Dad want to make the call, that's fine, but it is the player's responsibility to see that the call is made.
  • Players will arrive with the necessary gear. For practices: each player should bring an inflated ball, filled water bottle, soccer attire, shin guards, cleats and appropriate clothing (sweatshirt, wind breaker, etc.). For games: each player should bring their game jersey, back-up jersey, cleats, shin guards, socks (mandatory to play), water bottle and appropriate clothing (sweats, etc.).
  • Players will be respectful and display a positive attitude toward all teammates, officials,other players, coaches and parents at all times, on and off the field.
  • Players will not engage in cursing, name calling or taunting.
  • Players will keep their hands to themselves.
  • Players will not engage in dangerous behavior or horseplay.
  • Players will be good sports whether they win or lose.
  • Players will shake hands in a polite fashion with the opposing team.
  • Our team represents the Dundee Township and Huntley Park Districts when we are at home games, and we are representatives of the entire Dundee/Huntley area communities when we are at away games. Our bench and spectator areas will be clean and free of water bottles, candy wrappers and other debris when we leave practice and game sites.
