“Attitudes are Contagious”

This new video on parental behavior gets thumbs way up

Imagine that your son or daughter was officiating a soccer game. Now imagine that parents of the competing teams are yelling comments from the sidelines—affecting not only the morale of the referee but also creating a negative attitude that ‘infects’ the players, too.

This kind of behavior regularly occurs at youth sports events. Mass Youth Soccer has produced an outstanding video focusing on the issues of sideline behavior of adults, and specifically how that behavior affects referees and players. The Stow Soccer Club strongly encourages all parents to watch this video and learn what they can do to help create a positive experience for their children and the officials.
