<p class=MsoNormal>Coaches, Parents, Players, Fans,<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>               
All, as we really begin the Spring season, I would like to take just a moment
of your time to remind you that we all operate under a policy called the
“Zero Tolerance Policy.”  All players and their parents are
expected to sign it and all coaches are supposed to keep that signed document
for the players/parents of their teams.  You may find it on our website
under the “Forms & Documents” tab.  However, regardless of
whether or not it’s signed, all people on or near the soccer pitch
(field) in a CYSA/SSJ sanctioned game in our geographical area will be held to
this policy.<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p> </o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>In short, it says, “<span class=apple-style-span><span
style='font-size:13.5pt;color:black'>South San Jose Youth Soccer League will
not tolerate any form of abuse of its coaches, referees or League officials
from any fan, parent or spectator.”<o:p></o:p></span></span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p> </o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>The league has already taken action against two coaches in
the league, via a 1-game suspension, for inappropriate behavior by them and
parents on their teams.  In addition, should any further incidents take
place, the league will take further, more stringent action. These same actions
will be applied in any future cases with any other team should they occur.<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p> </o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>What this should really mean to you all is that we expect
all adults to act as role models for the behaviors we hope to instill into all
of our children.  The game of soccer should be teaching teamwork which is
ultimately a life skill.  The best way for kids to learn this is in an environment
of good sportsmanship.  Please take this seriously and work with the
league to ensure a successful season!  Not every call will go your way,
the Refs and Coaches are all only human.  But, that won’t prevent us
all from getting along with civility, teaching the kids more about the game and
having a good time,<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p> </o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>Thanks so much for your support!<o:p></o:p></p>
