NLYS Coaching Philosophy 
The coaching staff and officials of NLYS understand that children participate in soccer to have fun. If children don’t have fun playing soccer, they’ll soon pack it in.

We never forget that the game of soccer is just that - a game. It’s not about how many wins and losses are accumulated. It’s not about how many goals we score or concede. It’s all about enjoying the game and, at the same time, learning and developing soccer and life skills.

Proper soccer development requires that children play age appropriate activities so they are able to experience, comprehend, and execute the game as it relates to where they are at their own stage of physical and mental development.

It is about playing in different positions so the player learns all the skills necessary to develop in the game.

It’s about receiving equal playing time, so the players are all given equal opportunity to learn.

It’s about learning the techniques of the game through a variety of fun games where players have as much contact with a ball as possible and learn at their own rates. 

Code of Conduct for Coaches 
A coach’s primary responsibility is to make sure that his/her players have fun and to instill in them a passion for the game while helping them to develop their soccer skills.

The performance of coaches is not measured in wins and losses, but rather in what players learn in terms of technique, sportsmanship, and fair play. Coaches shall work on developing the each player’s technique and their decision-making ability while teaching them the rules of the game and fair play.

Coaches are charged with the responsibility of controlling their players at all times during a game.

Coaches lead and teach by example. Coaches should always be enthusiastic!

Coaches will use positive reinforcement when dealing with players. They will never use foul or abusive language and never abuse a player mentally, verbally, or physically. Coaches shall always display respect for the authority of the referee and for the opposing team.

Coaches are to never leave their players unattended during practices/games.
