Support Your Coach with
The Sideline Project
Coaches are ultimately responsible for spectator behavior, and will pay the price in the form of suspensions for egregious behavior. Support your coaches (and your players) by encouraging your parents to take the Sideline Project course. It's just 20 minutes and it can only positively impact spectator and postgame interaction!
The Soccer Parenting Association has created an education platform intended to empower parents, players and coaches with information that will help create a supportive, collaborative playing environment. Especially if your family is new to soccer or sports in general, the Sideline Project gives an overview of how adults can positively impact player experience and development – without muddying the waters with constant feedback and instructions from the sidelines.
- SFYS has paid for access to the Soccer Parenting and The Sideline Project for all parents with players in one of our leagues. Learn more and get free access to the platform through the link on the SFYS + Soccer Parenting page.
