Game Day Information for Parents​

All parents/guardians are required to sign the Parent Code of Conduct form before the beginning of each season.  
 
Field locations are posted on our website prior to the start of each season. Please check this prior to your game. Your tardiness/ absence could cause your team to forfeit.

If you are listed as the "Home" team, you are required to wear alternate jerseys/pinnies if there is a color conflict; if your team is unable to provide this they will forfeit. Each team has the responsibility for keeping trash picked up on their sideline.

Respect the Referees

Many of the referees are local youth; please treat them as you would want others to treat your children. The adult referees are there for your player as well. Do not expect to have a perfect game called.  If you have a concern/ issue that needs to be address, please email the referee assignor at desoto.soccer@yahoo.com Please respect and support our referees. Without referees, soccer games cannot be played.

 

If a match is abandoned by a referee because of a problem with a coach/spectator/player, the match will be counted as a forfeit for that team and a win for the opposing team no matter when the game was abandoned or what the score of the match was at the time.

DSA WILL NOT TOLERATE ANY UNSPORTSMANLIKE BEHAVIOR TOWARD OUR REFEREES, LEAGUE OFFICIALS, COACHES OR PLAYERS.
ALL REPORTS OF ABUSE CAN RESULT IN SUSPENSION.

Parent/Spectator Code of Conduct

We have a responsibility to promote high standards of behavior and ensure soccer can be enjoyed in a safe, positive environment. Remember, youth soccer is a time for players to develop their technical, physical, tactical, and social skills. Winning isn’t everything. Play your part and help enforce the Code of Conduct for Spectators and Parents/Guardians at all times. 

AT NO TIME will spectators be allowed to be behind the goal lines of any ongoing games.
Spectators should remain on their appropriate sideline for the duration of each game and are only permitted onto the field at the referee's discretion.
