Commendation from Vernon Soccer Club
May 15, 2016
To Art Howe (U9 Boys Comp. Coach)
I didn't get a chance to talk to you after the game, so I want to reach-out via email. I want to take a second to commend you, your staff, your team, and your parents for the sportsmanship you all displayed today during our game. We had 3 injures that impacted the flow of the game. They happened at least once (maybe twice) during your teams advantage with the ball. Instructing your player to kick the ball out of bounds to stop play shows solid sportsmanship. I have coached 3 different travel teams over the past 7 years and a number of coaches would have capitalized on the injuries rather that thinking of the players well being (as sad as that is).
Your team additionally brought our keepers cut/bloody nose to my attention when I failed to see it. One player immediately took a knee and another notified us. Very refreshing for their ages.
There was a "questionable" off-sides call that negated a goal for your team. I'm sure it was frustrating for your sidelines, but you did not blow your stack or abuse the ref. You reset your team and continued the game.
It was a hard fought game. Your team played a tough physical style, but yet very clean. Good soccer technique and style of play comes from the coach. You have a nice core group of boys. I wish your program years of success and want you to know I believe your outlook on youth sports is spot on.
Please watch this video. As parents and coaches sometimes emotions get the best of us. Please take a minute to watch this video and remember we are here for the kids and we should be treating the refs and children with respect while setting a positive example.
