Coaches and Parents Rules
Coaches’ Rules Toward Referees:
- Coaches may speak to a referee: at the start of the game, during stoppages in play and at the end of the game and only to ask questions — never to criticize a referee. The questions must relate to clarification; checking the time or score.
- A coach may never criticize a referee, call or question his judgment or in any way challenge the referee. Coaches who criticize referees or other players will be warned by the referee and if they fail to heed that warning will be ejected from the game. If a coach fails to leave, if ejected, the referee will stop the game at that point and record the score as at the stoppage in play.
- Coaches should stay within 10-15 meters of midfield. They are not allowed to cross the midfield line and follow their players, nor can an assistant coach go past the midfield line. Coaches cannot go on the other side of the field from their players while the game is being played.
- Parents must sit on the opposite side of the field from the players (U11 – U18 only). A referee can ask parents to move or refuse to start the game if they do not follow this rule.
- Coaches must control the parents of his/her kids. If a parent is abusive toward the referee or kids, the referee will give a warning to the team and the coach must deal with that. If the abuse continues, the referee has the right to ask the coach to eject the parent or the referee may stop the game and record the score as at the stoppage in play.
Divisional Game Sheets And Scores
Game sheets are to be completed for all U11-18 games (including pre-season AND all cross-over games). Please complete ALL sections, including the GAME #, printing clearly and pressing hard enough to go through all copies. Coaches must sign the game sheet at the END of the game to confirm the score. The first team listed on the schedule is to provide the game sheet for the game. It must be completed by both teams and given to the referee before the start of the game. The Columns marked “Y/R,” “ID Card,” the sections for the Final Scores and the Misconduct Summary section are all strictly for Referee Use Only.
Within 24 hours of a game, the winning coach is to email the score to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put the game number in the subject line. Please do not phone in your score. In the event of a tie, both coaches should send an email.
The game sheet is used to update the web stats — the emails are used in an event of a dispute/discrepancy/missing official/missing game sheet.
Performance Analysis Toolkit
Coaches BC has developed a unique solution to provide coaches with access to the highest quality of education and development through a Performance Analysis Tool Kit. The tool kit will contain portable technology and iPads loaded with the most up to date coaching software. The Tool Kit includes:

All Coaches BC Premier Members have access to Performance Analysis Tool Boxes, and can register to borrow the tool box for 3 weeks at a time, via our online registration form. Please note you will be required to supply your credit card information and a hold will be place on the card until the tool box is returned in good condition.
