Address the officiating crew in a respectful manner and only as Head Coach.
Make it fun and encourage/praise kids. Build a positive and cohesive team.

- Maintain proper communication with your players. Coaches are encouraged to remember the kids are just learning the game and must continually focus on the basics and explain things clearly.

Teach discipline, respect and accountability regardless of the player skill level.
