NBYSA Parent Info

Welcome Soccer Parents

Thank you parents for involving your child in youth soccer. We strive to make every season a great experience for all the kids involved.

We will try to provide answers to the most common questions on this page. If you have additional questions please feel free to contact the Age Group Commissioner for your childs age group.

To keep updated on the latest information, follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

So as the season fast approaches, join us in our pledge to enjoy a Responsible Sports season – a season filled with sportsmanship, life lessons, great competition and exceptional athletes, coaches and parents.

Code of Conduct

Parents must not coach from the pitch side during matches and training.

Parents should not criticize their child on any part of the player's game, leave this to the coaches since it may cause confusion and erode the player's confidence.

Be your child's best fan and support him unconditionally. Don’t withdraw your love when he performs below his standard.

On transporting your child home, please be supporting and always focus on the positive aspects of his game.

Develop a responsibility in your son to pack his own kit, clean boots and bring along his water bottle full of water only.

Respect the facilities

Do not criticize your child’s coach to your child or other parents, if you are not happy with the coach you should raise the issue with the coach.

Encourage your child to speak with the coach. If your child is having difficulties in training or games, or can’t attend training etc. encourage him to speak directly to the coaches. This “responsibility taking” is a big part of becoming a mature person. By handling off the field tasks, your child is claiming ownership of all aspects of the game.

Help the young player to focus on the performance and not the result.

Winning is not as important as the performance.

Support all the players in your child's squad. Do not criticize any player.

Do not criticize the opponents, their parents, coaches or the referee.

Zero Tolerance Policy

NBYSA has adopted a Zero Tolerance Policy regarding behavior on the fields.


All refund requests must be submitted in writing or via email to our Treasurer. After uniforms have been issued, the cost of the uniform will be deducted from any refund amount. After the first game, there will be no refunds.

What Age Group

To help determine the correct age group for your child, please visit our Age Group Help page.

When Will The Coach Contact Us

We hold a coaches meeting 2 weeks before the start of the season. Coaches receive their rosters at this time. We ask all coaches to contact all the players within 48 hours. If you have not heard from your coach within that time frame, please contact your Age Group Commissioner as soon as possible.
