Soccer Silent Sidelines 5/19 & 5/20


Silent Sidelines Weekend Banner Cropped

 

State Soccer Association Silent Sidelines Reminder 

Each Spring playing season, CJSA shall sponsor a statewide Silent Sidelines weekend. Coaches will be permitted to give players direction from the sidelines. Spectators will be directed to refrain from making any comments to players, coaches or referees, but will be permitted to applaud efforts by players.” Referees are not responsible for the enforcement of this rule. It is the clubs responsibility to inform your spectators of the guidelines for Silent Sidelines. 
The Spring Silent Sidelines weekend will be the third weekend of May. The goals of Silent Sidelines Weekend are to:

1. develop our players to make decisions on the field without sideline intervention.
2. improve the players’ communication on the field by reducing the outside noise level.
3. support our youth referees by eliminating dissension from the sidelines. 
This rule was drafted and passed at the request of a CJSA player. We need to help our players develop without the continued interference from the sidelines. The objective is to promote greater awareness of this development by coaches and parents as well as the players and referees. 
We are requesting that all spectators remain silent on these weekends. For the sake of our kids, we are asking for one weekend where we stand back and just let the players play. We would like to provide each player at least one game of their season that is free of the distractions caused by spectators screaming and yelling at them. 
The guidelines are simple. Spectators are to be quiet, talking in a normal tone to the person next to them. What is to be avoided are comments that can be heard by players, referees or opponents. Applause is permitted and encouraged. 
The program works. It has increased the awareness by both coaches and parents of the players’ development. In addition, it has increased referee retention. 
Your help is needed. We are asking everyone in CJSA to promote and support Silent Sidelines Weekend and give the game back to the kids. 
(The below message is a modification of Andrea Duffy’s May ‘02 Presidents Message.) 

A mother was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her teenage son. Suddenly the boy bursts into the kitchen. 
"Careful! Careful! Put in some more butter! Oh my goodness! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful!... CAREFUL! I said CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you crazy? Have you lost your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!" 
The mother stared at him. "What's wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?" 
The son calmly replied, "I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm trying to play soccer."
