Take care of your body. Stretch, strengthen, and condition to prevent injuries.
Practice on your own at home (we don’t recommend the dining room).
Be the one who sets the bar and not the one who’s always trying to reach it!
Anything you bring to the field, you take back with you. This includes all your equipment as well as any plastic bottles or food wrappers.
Wear the correct color of training top, black shorts, black socks, shin guards, cleats.
Bring a properly-inflated soccer ball and plenty of water.
Other items to keep in your bag: medical needs (inhaler, band aids, tissues, etc.), sunscreen, plastic trash bag in case it rains, small plastic bag for muddy shoes, sweatshirt or jacket, soccer ball, ball pump & needle.
Be ready to start the warm up 30 minutes prior to kickoff unless otherwise informed by your coach.
Bring both jerseys, navy shorts, orange socks, shin guards, cleats, water, and your soccer ball.
Play whatever position your coach asks you to play without complaint.
Treat your teammates, opponents, coaches, referees, and parents of the other team with respect.
When you are on the bench, stay engaged in the game mentally and root on your teammates. Don’t ask your coach to put you back in, but be ready when asked.
