Soccer Academy Alliance Canada

Code of Conduct

Soccer Academy Alliance Canada has endeavoured to provide a unique competitive program to its members that strives to provide the best possible conditions for player development.

The purpose of this program is to allow players to showcase their skills and put into practice the training they received from the professional staff at the member academies.

To that end, SAAC enforces a strict Code of Conduct for sideline behaviour that ALL participants in this program are expected to follow.

Coaching Staff:
  • Be respectful of the referee and your opponents
  • Refrain from using foul or abusive language
  • Limit the amount of coaching done from the sidelines to only when necessary
  • Keep your players and fans under control
  • Remember that the score of the game is secondary to the opportunity for your players to demonstrate and improve their game
Players:
  • Be respectful of the referee and your opponents
  • Refrain from using foul or abusive language
  • Remember that you are here to provide a strong performance, and that the result of the match is secondary to its benefit as a development tool
Fans:
  • Be respectful of the referee and the teams on the field
  • Refrain from using foul or abusive language
  • Keep comments positive
  • Refrain from coaching from the sidelines
  • Remember that you are here to support your child, not win a game where the final result is not the primary focus
  • Keep in mind that your attendance at SAAC events is a privilege, not a right
Everyone:
  • Keep the benches and viewing areas clean by picking up after yourself and depositing trash in the receptacles provided. Teams leaving garbage behind for others to clean up WILL BE FINED.
  • Smoking is NOT ALLOWED on the premises at any SAAC event (indoor or outdoor)

Individuals and teams that choose to ignore the SAAC policy will be politely reminded of the Code of Conduct at the first disturbance, and asked to leave at the second.

Your cooperation is appreciated.
