Berlin Youth Football 2024 Season Parent & Player Contract

As parents and spectators, you have a great influence on children’s enjoyment and success in football. All children who participate in football do so because they enjoy the sport and it is fun for them. However good a child becomes at football within this organization, parents and spectators should remember that positive encouragement will contribute to:

  • Children enjoying participating
  • A sense of personal achievement
  • Self-esteem
  • Improving the child’s skills and techniques

As parents/spectator’s, your expectations and attitudes have a significant bearing on a child’s attitudes towards other players, officials, and coaches.

Berlin Youth Football strongly encourages you to:

  • Respect the referee’s decision
  • Avoid coaching from the sidelines during games and practice
  • Respect the volunteer coaches
  • Avoid using foul or abusive language towards players, officials, or coaches
  • Never ridicule a player for making a mistake or for losing. Praise them or keep quiet
  • Give attention to each of the children involved in football or cheerleading- not just the most talented
  • Applaud the opposition as well as your own team
  • Remember young people are involved for their enjoyment, not yours

Berlin Youth Football will enforce the following rules:

  • No parents allowed on the field during scheduled practice times (for safety/liability reasons).
  • Coaches are always available to answer parent questions and address concerns, with the exception of discussing playing time and positions
  • Mandatory 24 hour cooling-off period following a game to discuss any issues associated with the game with the Head Coach or any Assistant Coaches
  • If the player has an unexcused absence for ONE practice; the player will play the minimum plays for that weekly game.
  • If the player has an unexcused absence for TWO practices; the player WILL NOT suit up for that weekly game. The player must still attend the game.
  • Any bullying behavior will not be tolerated and dealt with accordingly, including separation from BYF
  • Failure to return football equipment may result in $300 charge from the league.
