U10 Reminders - Week of 5/16/22
by posted 05/16/2022


U10 Gladiators on Mother's Day

Silent Sidelines Reminder - MAY 21 and 22, 2022

(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."

 

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; and
  3. Support our youth referees by eliminating dissension from the sidelines. 

The guidelines are simple:

  1. Coaches are permitted to give players direction from the sidelines. 
  2. Spectators shall not make any comments to players, coaches or referees, but are permitted to applaud.

*****************************************************************

Solid teamwork and perseverance in the Simsbury friendly and Farmington league matches.
