Dear Hills Spirit FC Community,
Fun, Friendship & Community ……a commitment from all of us…….
Our committee has received some recent feedback regarding bullying and misbehaving during training sessions for some of our teams. Kids will be kids and we can all appreciate this, and there is a lot of hyperactivity during fun training sessions which is a great thing. Our coaches are volunteers and dedicating their time to ensure our children’s soccer experience is enjoyable. It is extremely difficult for a single person to be running training drills and also be watching what is going on behind their back during these sessions. It is the responsibility of all parents to ensure our kids are having fun at training but not misbehaving and following instructions and being respectful of their team mates.
I would encourage parents to be active during training, give the coach as much assistance as they need during the sessions and to keep an eye on all the kids as they enjoy training with their friends. If any incidents do occur, the kids need to be made aware and punished accordingly (simple things such as running a lap or sitting out the next drill). They are all there to have fun and we just need to ensure it’s controlled and doesn’t get out of hand!
This is a great community club built on friendships first………Fun, Friendship and Community. It’s been a great season so far and my feedback is all teams are really enjoying themselves. Let’s keep up the great spirit and morale at the club – it really sets us apart from others!
