Relax and wait to hear from your coach. Opening Day is April 6th! Coaches' training is held during the two weeks prior to Opening Day. After training, the coaches will receive their rosters and can then schedule practices.
PLEASE NOTE: You may not hear from your coach until the week prior to the start of the season. 

During the weeks leading up to opening day, we will be extremely busy! Coaches' meetings, referee training, field preparation, and equipment replacement are just a few of the tasks we need to complete before the season begins. Please be patient and wait to hear from your coach. If they haven't reached out to you by the Monday before opening day, please call or email us. We will be happy to assist you in getting in touch with your coach!

Parental Code of Conduct

River Valley Soccer Association (RVSA)

Parental Code of Conduct

Est. Dec, 2022

RVSA recognizes that parents are an integral part of a player's, and their team's support system. It is imperative that our parents exemplify sportsmanship and respect for the game by adhering to the following guidelines established by  RVSA and Say Soccer.

As a RVSA parent I shall:

  • Encourage and support my child’s experience and play on the field.

  • Encourage good sportsmanship and self-discipline to my child and their teammates by setting a good example.

  • Support my child’s coaches and their team.

  • Respect the officials and accept their decisions.

  • Familiarize myself with the laws of the game.

  • Comply with rules, policies and procedures of the team and the organization. 

As a RVSA parent I will never:

  • Engage in dissent directed towards any official.

  • Engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct towards a coach, player, parent or any official.

  • Coach from the sidelines. 

    • A player can become confused as to who to listen to if a parent is instructing them to play in a way that is not taught during practice.

  • Disrespect the opposing team, coaches or parents.

  • Interfere at any time with the duties and responsibilities of the coach.

  • Act in any way that is detrimental to the team, players, officials or the organization.

  • Use noisemakers of any kind on the sidelines.

If issues arise during the season with my child or their team I shall:

  • Privately address the matter with the coach.

  • Refrain from addressing the matter with others.

  • Refrain from addressing the situation immediately prior to, during or immediately after a game.

    • These are times when emotions can be high and conversation of this matter deserves to be had in a calm manner.

  • If issues remain unresolved, they should be brought to the attention of the Board of Directors.

    • Board members are available on Saturday’s, via email or by attending a monthly Board meeting.

It is the goal of RVSA to promote a fun and safe environment for our community. As a parent, I understand players are involved in sports for their enjoyment and I will encourage my child and other players to always display good sportsmanship and respect for one another. I will not verbally abuse coaches, officials, parents, players or anyone else at events, practices or games. I understand that the Board of Directors and all coaches are volunteers and I will respect their efforts to instill in the players the importance of sportsmanship and fair play. I also commit to report any violations to the Board or Directors. 

I understand and accept any violations of the Parental Code of Conduct could result in my removal from an event or suspension from all activities. All violations will be reviewed by the Board of Directors.
