Hello Parents,

The following is a notice of some upcoming changes in the EMSA north as it concerns registering for the Indoor soccer season This is not coming from the communities but being mandated by EMSA NORTH:

Registration will still occur online through the EMSA Soccer Portal with the option to pay online, however the registration process after you complete online will give you a few options, one to go directly to the EMSA North Office or come directly to a Community League to complete your registration. The dates and times for these sessions will be listed on the final confirmation page of your registration form when you register online. www.emsasoccerportal.com

The most important item for families to note will be the need to ensure all coach / player / community requests are entered into the registration form correctly to ensure that your child ends up placed on the correct team/community. Ensure you put down what community you want to play for and what coach/player you want to play with.

On time registration opens on the EMSA Soccer portal August 1st , Late & waitlisted registrations will begin September 4th.

For volunteer commitments / Membership sales we will hold sessions in August and September so after you register with the portal and EMSA North office you will be redirected to come to the community League to sign up.

SPECIAL REQUESTS******

Please note that while we try to accommodate all requests to move up age groups or play with specific coaches or players, our priority is always to ensure that children from our community are placed on teams first, then to accommodate special requests for returning players, and finally special requests for new players. As such we can’t always guarantee your requests will be honored. In the event there are not enough children or coaches to facilitate a team, we work with other communities in the area to ensure everyone has a team to play on.

Coaches Needed:

All community teams are coached by parent volunteers. All coaches in the EMSA program MUST have or take a coaching clinic. EMSA has made it mandatory for all coaches to have taken a coaching course. Hairsine will register all coaches for the coaching course. Coaches will be exempt from fundraising commitment. as well they must pass a security check.

Unfortunately if we do not get a coach the community will not be able to form a team in that particular age group and the children registered will be transferred to a community that have space available on their teams. Please sign up by indicating on your child’s registration form that you are willing to coach your child’s team.

If you think you want to coach and want more info contact Jason at sports.director@hairsine.ca

CODES OF CONDUCT

COACH’S CODE

  • Soccer is a game for happiness.
  • The laws of soccer should be regarded as mutual agreements, the spirit or letter of which no one should try to avoid or break.
  • Visiting teams and spectators are honored guests.
  • No advantages except those of superior skill should be sought.
  • Official and opponents should be treated and regarded as honest in intention.
  • Official decisions should be accepted without looking angry no matter how unfair they may seem.
  • Winning is desirable, but winning at any cost defeats the purpose of the game.
  • Losing can be a triumph when the team has given its best.
  • The ideal is the greatest good to the greatest number.
  • In soccer, as in life, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

PLAYERS’ CODE

  • Play the game for the game’s sake.
  • Be generous when you win.
  • Be gracious when you lose.
  • Be fair always, no matter what the cost.
  • Obey the Laws of the Game.
  • Work for the good of the team.
  • Accept the decisions of the Officials with good grace.
  • Believe in the honesty of your opponents.
  • Conduct yourself with honor and dignity.
  • Honestly and wholeheartedly applaud the efforts of you teammates, and opponents.

PARENTS’ CODE

  • Children have more need for example than criticisms.
  • Make athletic participation for your child and other a positive experience.
  • Attempt to relieve pressure of competition, not increase it. A child is easily affected by outside influences.
  • Be kind to your child’s coach and officials. The coach is a volunteer giving personal time and money to provide a recreational activity for your child. The coach is providing a valuable community service, often without regard other than the personal satisfaction of having served their community.
  • The opponents are necessary friends. Without them your child could not participate meaningfully.
  • Applaud good plays by your team and by members of the opposing team.
