Team & Spectator Positions

Please see below how we expect all teams and spectators to position themselves for ALL FM rec League games. 




Why is the Spectator and Team Field Setup like this?

  1. Players need to be able to hear instruction from coaches and coaches need to be able to clearly communicate with the players. Referees need to be able to identify and communicate quickly with coaches. It can become loud and confusing for players, coaches and referees to have spectators on the same side as the teams.

  2. Safety: Coaches need a visual of the team and know each player is accounted for. If players have left the sidelines to sit with family, it causes unnecessary confusion when coaches are calling for subs or making line changes. This also helps players stay engaged in the game and with their teammates.

  3. We are a community based organization. Our coaches are parent volunteers.  We greatly appreciate their time and efforts and want them to return. Without volunteers, we don't have a program. They need space to coach and our children need space to learn from them.

  4. We are a learning based program that encourages decision making and problem solving. We encourage players to take chances implementing what they’ve learned in practice. Sometimes they will make mistakes. Our goal is to create an environment where they feel confident to stick with it and try again. Hearing lots of advice from the sidelines can be distracting for the whole team, but having your efforts applauded feels great! 

  5. We don't want anyone to get injured. If spectators sit right on the edge of the field, you are not only encroaching on the field of play you are also very likely to get hit with a soccer ball.
