Respect the Game Program and Field Marshal Video

Respect the Game Program

NEW PROGRAM DESIGNED TO IMPROVE OFFICIATING AND REDUCE SIDELINE ABUSE:

What began as an experimental program in Tucson a year ago, was met with such enthusiasm and experienced such success that AYSA has decided to implement the program statewide on a voluntary basis.

VIDEO THAT DESCRIBES THE PROGRAM

All AYSA players, parents and coaches will sign a new Code of Conduct this Fall promising to end bad behavior and abuse of game officials. Failure to comply can result in mandatory Anger Management and fines. Reminders in the way of signage and trained sideline field marshals reminding everyone to, “RESPECT THE GAME” will be employed to assure compliance.

At the same time coaches will have the ability to evaluate referee performance using the new “Rate-a-Ref” on line program. These evaluations will assist our referee administrators in mentoring and educating referees and rewarding those who exceed standards. Similarly, referees will be encouraged to evaluate the coaches in the new “Rate-a-Coach” program which will assist DOC’s in their education and mentoring of their coaches.

In conclusion, the program is designed to aid in recruiting new referees and properly recognizing and rewarding those who excel.

Be Kind…..on the Sidelines

The spectator’s job is to enjoy the game! Keep comments positive and general, rather than directed at individual players. Be supportive of both teams.

The coach’s job is to coach the players! Additional coaching from the sidelines distracts players and may affect their performances.

The referee’s job is to officiate the game. Respect the difficulty of this position by allowing the refs to work without interruption.

The soccer field is a learning environment for players. Spectators serve as powerful role models for good sportsmanship.

HAVE FUN AND BE KIND!

How to find a place for your child to play Soccer in Pima County

How to find a place for your child to play Soccer in Pima County

We receive many inquiries from parents either new to soccer or new to Pima County about how to get their child started in soccer and onto a team. As you will see, you must work with one of the many fine soccer clubs that operate in Pima County, not with the PCJSL organization itself.

If you are interested in your child playing soccer in Pima County here are the steps you should follow.

    First, look at our page http://www.pcjsl.com/club-directory/ , or even the AYSA page http://www.usyouthsoccer.org/aboutus/FindaClub/?F_STATE=AZ where you will find out which clubs are operating in which area of town. You can also find web pages, email addresses and phone numbers for these clubs.

    Second, you should go to the web page of the different clubs you saw on the club directory and investigate where they practice, their history, their philosophies, etc.

    Third, reach out to the clubs you are interested in and determine which one is the right fit for you and your child.

    Lastly, pick one of those clubs and register your child directly with that club.

Pima County Junior Soccer League (PCJSL) is the managing body for all soccer in Pima County. We are a sub organization of Arizona Youth Soccer which is a sub organization of US Youth Soccer. We do not have teams or players. All team and players fall under a club that is in our Club Directory.

We hope this helps and have fun with Soccer!
