Congratulations on your endeavours during the year

Hi Youth coaches, managers, parents and players.
Congratulations on your endeavours during the year, regardless of where your team finished on the ladder. The fact that you have donated a large component of your time to help develop young football players on the Gold Coast and in particular Mudgeeraba soccer club is much appreciated by our sport and community.
There are many trials and tribulations in coaching a young team – whether it is boys or girls , in most cases you signed up to be a coach and you became a pseudo parent to a further 10-14 kids for 20-plus weeks , as well as having to manage other parents and friends who in some cases believed they could have done a much better job!
I am sure you have completed a job to the best of your abilities – thank you – well done, for some however the season has the last phase: “the finals”. This is a time where we see some remarkable behavioural changes – winning becomes the only result acceptable, the build up to a winning a final is the be all end all! This is not the case across the board but it becomes very prominent in many cases.
The coaches and crowd start to put pressure on the referee, often a young referee and this pressure also flows through to the players, who are good copycats of coaches .
Let’s be honest. Yes referees will make mistakes, they are human and they are required to make decisions in a stadium where 22 players plus coaches and the team supporters may or may not agree with the verdict. Just like coaches and the players will make mistakes, so do referees. It is part of the game.
As coaches you are the primary role model for everyone involved. I am going to ask you if you have a team participating in finals to lead by example, if you as the coach question or argue with the referee in a negative manner it will lead to the supporters and players doing the same.
As a coach you could address your supporters prior – by all means encourage and reward good play – but let’s set an example. Don’t get involved in the heat of the game by abusing referees or even more so the club volunteer lines person. Enjoy the game and reward the participants from both teams as well as the officials for their efforts.
All the best to all players , coaches and officials participating in finals! Let’s make our club the roll model for all other clubs on the Gold Coast!!
Once again thank you to all coaches and managers, good luck and

Love your football,
Jamie Rogers
Vice President
Director of coaching
