SIDELINE SECRETS OF A SOCCER PARENT...
Sep 29 2016 - STAFF
Each weekend people excited to watch their children, family and friends play soccer take to the sidelines of parks, schools and club complexes across the United States ready to cheer their teams on to victory!
With this, the soccer field for some can become a place of quiet reflection, others a place to have fun, take a break from normal day stressors and connect with their community. But for others, well, let's just say sometimes the environment off the field can become more excited (both good and bad) than on the field.
So here is an interesting item that brings a little different perspective to that sideline experience and something we thought was worth sharing:
Did you ever sit on the sideline of a sporting event and secretly wonder...
WDDOA SILENT SIDELINE WEEKEND - OCT 1-2 2016
Sep 29 2016 - STAFF
As previously announced during the WDDOA Fall 2016 GBM held on July 9, 2016, WDDOA is proud to hold the 2nd Annual Fall WDDOA - SILENT SIDELINE WEEKEND Oct 1-2 2016! A day when we let the kids’ just play.
Very often in kids’ sports, adults, parents and coaches can become overly vocal in their approach to working with and/or trying to encourage or motivate young athletes. However well-intentioned some of them may be, the results may not always be positive. With a Silent Sideline Weekend, parents and spectators are asked to keep talking to a bare minimum on the sidelines while encouragement in the form of applause is strongly recommended. While everyone else watches on in SILENCE, coaches from each team will be able to direct their players as needed, as this event is not meant to impede or diminish the job of a coach in any way during the game.
