Code of Conduct
Coaches/Parents Code of Conduct
 
The Board of Directors of Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association, Incorporated (Mass Youth Soccer) and the leaders of the affiliated Leagues are concerned about the conduct of all coaches and referees during games at all levels, from recreational to premier to ODP.
 
We want to ensure that games are fair, positive and enjoyable experiences for all of the children and adults involved. A soccer game should be friendly and unifying - a spirited social and athletic occasion for players, coaches, referees and spectators.
 
To clarify expectations of coach conduct, we jointly expect all coaches to conform to this code of conduct.
 
• Before, during and after the game, be an example of dignity, patience and positive spirit.
 
• Before a game, introduce yourself to the opposing coach and to the referee.
 
• During the game, you are responsible for the sportsmanship of your players. If one of your players is disrespectful, irresponsible or overly aggressive, take the player out of the game at least long enough for him/her to calm down.
 
• During the game, you are also responsible for the conduct of the parents of your players. It is imperative to explain acceptable player and parent behavior in a preseason meeting.
 
• Encourage them to applaud and cheer for good plays by either team. Discourage them and you may need to be forceful and direct from yelling at players and the referee.
 
• During the game, you are also responsible for the conduct of spectators rooting for your team.
 
• During the game, do not address the referee at all. If you have a small issue, discuss it with the referee calmly and patiently after the game.
 
• If you have a major complaint, or if you think the referee was unfair, biased, unfit or incompetent, report your opinion to your League. Your reactions will be taken seriously if they are presented objectively and formally.
 
• After the game, thank the referee and ask your players to do the same.
 
We stress two points:
 
Referees - especially young and inexperienced ones - are like your players and yourself, in that they need time to develop. You can play an important role in helping them to improve by letting them concentrate on the game. You can help by encouraging them, by accepting their inevitable, occasional mistakes and by offering constructive post-game comments. On the other hand, you could discourage and demoralize the referees by criticizing their decisions, by verbally abusing them and inciting - or even accepting - your own players' overly aggressive behavior.
 
Your example is powerful, for better or worse. If you insist on fair play, if you concentrate on your players' enjoyment of the game and their overall, long term development, and if you support the referee, your players and their parents will notice. If you encourage (or allow) your players to play outside the rules, if you're overly concerned about results, and if you criticize the referee harshly, your players and their parents will also notice.
 
Think about what you're doing during a game! Uphold the Spirit of the Game! If you follow the expectations described above, the spirit of the game will be alive and well in Massachusetts and will grow, along with the enjoyment of all.
 

Coaches/parents who don't follow the expectations described above will be disciplined or removed.

 
 
LYSC G2 Rules For Play

LYSC G2 Rules For Play 
 
G2 soccer is a non-pressure, non-results orientated, instructional form of soccer whose purpose is to provide a FUN atmosphere and a positive playing experience for the children participating. All participants win when Coaches, Parents, Referees, and Players enjoy the game. 

  • Sunday sessions consist of approximately 45 minutes of practice and 45 minutes of an intra-league game. 
  • All players shall receive equal playing time. 
  • Games are approximately 2 22 minute halves with a 5 minute break between halves.
  • G2 age group shall play Five vs. Five (5 v 5) including a goalie. Goalies should not play in goal for any longer than half of a half before rotating. 
  • All teams (including coaches and players) must remain on one side of the soccer field. Coaches will be allowed to enter the field space the first 3 games of the season to provide teaching assistance (for throw-ins, corner kicks and goal kicks especially), but should not remain on the field. Spectators including parents shall remain on the opposite side of the field. 
  • The ball size that will be used will be a number 3. 
  • We will observe FIFA rules for throw-ins. For example, when a ball goes out of bounds, the player will throw the ball in keeping 2 feet on the ground when the ball is released. A player who takes a throw-in or a kick-off improperly will be given several additional tries. 
  • Goal kicks: 
    • all opponents must be at least 5-6 yards from the ball 
    • all opponents must remain outside the penalty area until the ball is in play 
    • the ball is in play when it is kicked directly out of the penalty area

    • A corner kick is awarded when the whole of the ball passes over the goal line, either on the ground or in the air, having last touched a player of the defending team, and a goal is not scored.
    • The ball must be placed inside the corner arc nearest to the point where the ball crossed the goal line. 
    • If corner flag posts exist, the corner flag post must not be moved. 
    • Opponents must remain at least 5-6 yards from the corner arc until the ball is in play The ball must be kicked by a player of the attacking team.
    • The ball is in play when it is kicked and moves The kicker should not play the ball again until it has touched another player. 
  • Free kicks may be awarded for hand balls and rough play. The ball is placed at the location where the penalty occurred and must be touched by another player before entering the goal. 
  • No direct penalty kicks 
  • No off-sides 
  • Substitutions may be made anytime the ball goes out of play, regardless of which team is throwing the ball in.
