Kelly Ross:Executive Director  
As we ramp up the spring cups and spring leagues, it's very important to remind ourselves of the basic reasons why we're here; so that kids have the opportunity to participate in soccer competition. We have to be vigilant that it's a game for kids. Parents and coaches must be mindful that certain vicarious actions may impact the enjoyment of the kids on the field. Parents are to be reminded to behave themselves appropriately on the sidelines. Coaches are to be reminded to allow the game officials to manage the games without undue interference from the sidelines. Mistakes will be made by players. Mistakes will be made by coaches. Mistakes will be made by game officials. Such is the reality in the game of soccer and in the game of life. We learn by doing. Let the coaches' coach. Let the referees officiate. Let the kids play. Let the parents spectate. (continue reading...)
