Players Code of Conduct

As a JSSA player, I understand that the difference between being ordinary and extraordinary requires extra effort. I understand that wanting to win on game day is worth nothing unless I have the will to prepare to win before game day. So that I might be the best player and team member that I am capable of becoming I promise to do the following:

These pledges are promises that you make to your team for the full soccer season. They are your word to your teammates and coaches.

  1. I will challenge myself to be the best player that I can be, at both practices and games.
  2. I will make every effort within my control to attend all team activities.
  3. I will learn to understand and accept my role within the team concept.
  4. I will keep my priorities in order; Family, Academics, & then Soccer.
  5. I will always encourage and never criticize my teammates.
  6. I will display the highest standards for sportsmanship at practice and games, regardless of the outcome of either.
  7. I understand that proper time management is required to excel on the soccer field and in the classroom.
  8. I will abide by the decisions of my Coaches in the best interest of the team.
  9. I will focus on how I played, not how much I played.

John M. Smith, the New England Patriots "Rookie of the Year" in 1974, never touched an American football until he was 21 years old! So, how could he obtain this achievement, lead the NFL in scoring in 1979 and 1980 and become an NFL All-Pro Player in 1980!
