To: All soccer players and their families

The St. Charles Soccer Association has recently received the "Return to Play" guidelines as set out by the Canadian Soccer Association, Sport Manitoba and the Manitoba Soccer Association for our teams to get back on the field and back to practice.

The SCSA assures you that we will make sure that all the guidelines are followed for the safety of the all the players, coaches and all other members of the district.
Some are asking about registration fees.

We are still looking at several "unknowns" at the moment, including the length of the season and how many games it will entail. Once these unknowns are settled, then we can possibly adjust the registration fee depending on how those certain factors resolve.

The "Return to Soccer" will start on June 17, at which time all participants will have to be registered with the SCSA clubs to be covered by the MSA insurances. Most of you already are, and are fully paid.
At this point, despite the additional expenses imposed by the COVID-19 response, the SCSA is committed to there being no fee increase for this season. Further, if reduced expenditures in other areas warrant, there may be a partial refund of fees already paid.

Should there be an unforeseen development this summer that does not allow the season to start, the SCSA is committed to refunding fees paid, less only those sums that will have been incurred in preparation for the season -- to a maximum hold-back of just $50. (The expenses involve MSA insurance, field preparation, coach screening and such.)
This is our commitment to you, the families. In return, we are hoping that you are eager and willing to participate in the "beautiful game" through the summer.

As many of you with older children in the program are well aware, the SCSA has been committed to keeping costs low for the past few years, and we assure you that we are equally committed to continuing this effort this year and into the future.

Here's to an enjoyable summer of soccer after what has been a tough spring. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please reach out to your community club convener. We are all here to help get the players enjoying soccer again -- as soon as possible.

Regards,

Allan Gibbens, President
SCSA

Expectations 

A good experience for all means that there are expectations of everyone involved. Parents you are key in creating a positive environment for coaches, referees, other parents and especially the players. As a parent you can help create a positive environment where everyone is learning and having fun.

  1. Give positive feedback, encourage all team members and recognize good play by opposing teams.
  2. Communicate in a positive way. No criticizing of your child or other players/parents/coaches/referees.
  3. Respect the coach and let them coach.
  4. Respect the referees and let them referee.
  5. Show commitment and attend your child’s games and practises if possible.
  6. Learn the game for your child. Play and practise together.

Players  

The most important attributes players can bring to a team are a positive attitude, a willingness to learn and an enjoyment for the game. Playing SOCCER should be fun. But as a TEAM sport, it means that players should respect:

The Coach

  • Listening, cooperating and following team rules
  • Asking questions/making suggestions in an appropriate manner
  • Attending games & practises

Other Team Members

  • Encouraging each other, not criticizing
  • Giving your best effort, including games & practises

Opposing Teams  

  • Be a good sport no matter the outcome of the game Referees
  • Accept the Referees decision. Do not argue.
  • Refs do make mistakes. They are human.
  • Criticizing the referee could result in you being asked to leave the game and would then mean that your team might play short.

Coaches 

  • They are volunteers and need the respect and support of parents and players to effectively coach.
  • If you have a concern, question or idea you should talk to the coach constructively.
  • If you child is having a difficulty with some aspect of the game, please take the time to discuss it with the coach.
  • If you are upset about a matter, approach the coach in a calm manner.
  • If you have an unresolved concern, contact your club convenor.

Referees 

We have a serious problem with Youth referees many of whom are in their teens not staying in the program. The major reason is the intimidating and abusive treatment by Coaches and Parents. Abuse of a Referee will not be tolerated. WYSA now requires each team to have one parent act as a Referee Liaison at every game.

Show your support for the team and the game. Be respectful to the Referees.
