Cool Heads Make Great Role Models

Pull date: 
Mon, 12/13/2010

With playoffs and championships on the line, some of our coaches & parents may not have exhibited the best sideline behavior last weekend. Remember, the kids are watching you and will be mimicking your actions throughout life (including in your home). Set the good example. Positive words to the players, silence to the referees.

Congratulations to our Sportsmanship Points Winners

Pull date: 
Sat, 12/18/2010

All season long our referees having been noting the conduct of coaches, players & spectators at every game. Three teams emerged with top scores in U10G, U12B & U14G. Most notable was the Pink Dominators, lead by Coach Mark Young & Assistant Coach Mark Fuchs in U10Girls. When they won, they won with class. When they lost, the players gracefully accepted defeat but never gave up. All along the way, they had a brave set of parents supporting them. Thanks for representing Santa Monica AYSO so well and enjoy your Sportsmanship prizes.
