As a player at the Stony Brook Soccer Club you are expected to be a good role model for others in the club. A great soccer player isn’t just about scoring goals, it’s about sportsmanship. It starts when you put on your cleats and walk on the field. Your actions are important, they define who you are.
You are expected to:
- Cheer for good play- not just goals
- Show team spirit –cheer for your teammate’s effort
- Shake hands after the game- be positive
- Obey the rules of the game- don’t argue with the referee
- Support your teammates and your opponents
- Have FUN in both practice and games
Responsibility Towards Referee
Between the exuberance of the winner and the disappointment of the loser, we find a person called a referee.
- They try to watch every move on every player and call the game at the best of their ability. They are only one person. They will make mistakes.
- They will be filling out and post comments on the Sportsmanship Rating Cards on all players, coaches and parents.
- They are our own children. Each referee is a 4th-12th grader who has grown up playing in the Three Village Soccer Club and Stony Brook Travel, so please treat them as your neighbor's child - because they are!
Responsibility Towards the Fields
Foul language, physical violence or the threat of physical violence by any participant will not be permitted or tolerated and will result in immediate expulsion from the field.
- We are privileged to use and maintain the fields at Stony Brook University "P" lot
- There is always a Division Leader and Board Member on duty. The concession stand will help you locate them.
- There is no time, for any reason that a parent, player, coach or ref should feel threatened in any way
Violations of the player conduct policy will be investigated by our Board of Directors.
