PLAYER AND PARENT CONTRACT
Training and Games - We understand that teams will train at least one times per week and possibly more prior to games. Playing time in games is earned/not given and is based on the effort, dedication, attitude and skills shown at training.
The player agrees - To attend all scheduled games and practices during the season. Absences will not be tolerated or excused unless they are occasional, unexpected and unavoidable, and only in the event that your coach is notified at the earliest possible date of such absence. We also understand practice days, times and location might not stay the same in the fall, winter, and spring.
Respect and Conduct - Players and parents agree to always respect and exhibit good sportsmanship toward coaches, fellow teammates, game officials, and opposing players and parents. Players and parents represent their team, the club, and themselves and agree to honor that commitment. Poor sportsmanship and behavior detrimental to the club and/or team are grounds for dismissal from membership in the club. Players and parents understand that behavior and conduct during travel and at hotels, banquets, team meals, etc. are all considered part of team activity and accept responsibility for actions during those times.
Coaching – We understand that it is the player’s responsibility to discuss problems with the coach. Players should ask to meet with the coach prior to or after the next training session or some other time when privacy is available.
Parents agree to try to let players work out difficulties first with their coach. If a parent/coach meeting is required, the discussion will center on the player with constructive dialog between everyone.
Parents may request a meeting with the Director(s) if they feel that it is necessary to discuss/resolve a situation.
Player selection is based on soccer skill and not by position therefore we understand and agree it is the coaches’ responsibility to place the players in a position(s) that will help them excel and complement each other within the team framework.
The exception is if the player has been offered a roster spot at the Goalkeeper position, this will stay in effect the entire soccer year unless it is mutually agreed otherwise between the player/parent, coach, and club
Parent Code – Parents will refrain from coaching from the sidelines, as many times it is in direct conflict with the instructions that players receive from their coach and causes confusion and problems during the game. In general, parental behavior both on and off the field that is detrimental to the team and /or club spirit or interferes in achieving team and/or club goals may result in removal of BOTH the player and parent from membership in the club.
Seacoast United - Azzurri parents are forbidden to form teams with Seacoast United Azzurri players to play in indoor leagues and tournaments; their own child is the only exception.
Privacy Notice - For both internal and external use, it is acknowledged that the club may compile and distribute email and postal mailing addresses and/or lists and may utilize soccer photographs and video of the named individual. I consent to such uses and waive all rights to compensation.
Tuition Fees - Players and their families commit to paying all fees on a timely basis. Please note that due to the financial constraints of the Club, once a signed or an online acceptance of the player agreement is delivered to the Club, Seacoast United Azzurri makes the commitment to the roster spot for the entire 2018/2019 club-soccer year. However, this commitment is only performance-based. Failure on the part of the Player and/or Parent/Guardian to comply with the conduct policy, as stated above and below, will result in the Player’s removal from the team. If the family decides Seacoast United Azzurri is no longer the right choice for the player, may request a release. Seacoast United Azzurri will grant such release pursuant to the League guidelines. In all cases, the family is responsible for payment in full all the tuition fees for the entire club-soccer year with no refunds of any kind. Failure to meet the agreed payment schedule will result in the Player being held out of participation until payment has been received. If payment has not been received, the remaining balance will be forwarded to a third party agency for collection. Player and/or Parent/Guardian agrees to be responsible for any and all fees paid by Seacoast United Azzurri or Seacoast United in order to retrieve any past due tuition if there is a failure on the part of the Player and/or Parent/Guardian to comply with the above financial arrangement. In a rare case where the player sustains an injury, either through a Boston Azzurri related event or an outside club activity, the roster spot will remain secure for the entire club-soccer year. The financial commitment to the roster spot remains as stated above. However, under certain special cases, as determined in a case by case by the Board of Directors, partial credit may be granted. A letter and documentation supporting the request must be submitted for review.
I understand that I am responsible for registering and paying for all programs online and in advance. If Seacoast - Azzurri, F.C. Boston Azzurri, Seacoast United or East Coast Futsal has to invoice and register my child I understand there is a $25 service fee. I also understand that I am responsible for full payment for any and all programs, in which I register, or in which my child attends.
