girlsCAN Football believes that a positive parental and familial influence is very important in the development of a player. In order to help pave the pathway to success, girlsCAN Football requires parents and families to be on the same page as the girlsCAN Football Staff. We ask that parents and families abide by the following code of conduct.
- “Early is on time and on time is late.” Players need to be dressed and ready to go by the start of each session. If players arrive before the session has started, they should come out on the field and juggle until the girlsCAN Staff starts the training.
- All girlsCAN Football players must wear the girlsCAN Football adidas training kit for the sessions or their practice uniforms for the Team Trainings.
- Even though girlsCAN Football has its own supply of equipment, all girlsCAN Football players should bring their ball to the sessions. The ball must be pumped up.
- All girlsCAN Football players must wear the proper football equipment. This includes shinguards and cleats or indoor turf shoes. Parents and families should help develop a responsibility in their daughter(s) to pack her own bag, clean her boots after each session, and bring a bottle full of water.
- Parents and families should not come on to the field or talk to the girlsCAN Football Staff during the sessions. When a girlsCAN Staff Coach is conducting two sessions back-to-back, parents and families should not talk to the girlsCAN Staff Coach in between sessions. Parents and families can email the girlsCAN Staff any non-emergency questions at email@example.com.
- Parents and families should emphasize the importance of practicing at home what the players learn in the girlsCAN Football sessions. We will give players the tools to do the work on their own. The players that improve the most, will be the ones who make a choice to take a ball out and put the time in outside of their girlsCAN Football sessions.
- Respect the experience and knowledge of the girlsCAN Football Staff. All of the girlsCAN Football Coaches have played and coached the game at some of the highest levels in the world.
- Parents and families should not coach their daughter(s) from off of the field during the girlsCAN Football session.
- girlsCAN Football uses United Athletic Centers Stratford as its main facility. Parents and families should respect the facilities.
- Parents and families should encourage their child to speak with the girlsCAN Football Staff and coaches. If a player is having a difficult time in training, or cannot attend a session, parents and families should encourage her to speak directly to the coaches. Parents and families can help their daughters develop off the field characteristics, which are just as important as on-field characteristics.
- girlsCAN Football coaches players of all different levels of the game. Parents and families should not criticize other players and parents.
girlsCAN Football aspires to help the girls reach their potential both on and off the field. We appreciate your help in following the above guidelines to help us allow your daughter to have the most enjoyable experience possible in our girlsCAN Football Programs.
