Prepare for Silent Weekend

Posted by ALBANY-BERKELEY SOCCER CLUB at Apr 14, 2024 9:23AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Silent soccer is a way to let players demonstrate their team work and abilities without input from an adult. Players will learn to trust their skills and instincts, and build confidence as a team, without concern that their mistakes will be corrected from the sidelines.

COACHES: use the next few weeks’ practices to prepare players and parents!
ON GAME DAY: Be creative in your support for both teams (signs, flags, poms poms) on the day

Cheer on good passes, saves, goals …by both teams!

No calling out instructions during the game!
Coaches provide coaching points at the start of the game, during substitutions, at halftime and after the game.

U8-U6 Coaches ONLY may verbally coach, however, please use restraint and coach moderately
(parents must observe the rule of silence)

Today, as we celebrate the mathematical wonder of π (3.14…), we’re also celebrating our love for soccer! ⚽️✨

Just like the digits of Pi, the possibilities on the soccer field are endless. Each pass, each shot, each moment is an opportunity to create something extraordinary.

Join us in embracing the spirit of Pi Day by recognizing the infinite joy and excitement that soccer brings to our lives. Whether you’re dribbling on the field or cheering from the sidelines, soccer unites us all in a shared love for the game.

So grab a slice of your favorite pie, kick back, and let’s celebrate the magic of soccer.
Happy Pi Day from all of us at ABSC Soccer! ⚽️
