24 Hour Rule

What is the 24 Hour Rule:

 The 24-hour rule is a new sensation in youth sports and is changing the sports community. In general terms, the rule states that a parent should not contact a coach until after 24 hours to make remarks, complaints, or observations about an athletic conference.  The idea behind this rule is to not approach the coach with criticism based on initial gut-reaction, but taking time to process one’s initial thoughts.
 24 Hour Role:

 Any player or parent/guardian who is upset with a coach, for any reason, should wait 24 hours before approaching any coach or board member with complaints. This rule is intended to let parents and coaches have a cooling/calming down period. After that time, the first thing to do is to discuss the problem with a team manager, if necessary, the coach and/or board. It is the board’s opinion that, after waiting the required period of time, everyone will be able the discuss any problem in a calmer, more professional manner.

With the above in mind:

 NYSC is dedicated to all its players to providing a safe, fun and learning environment while enhancing their soccer skills. To continue to provide a safe and fun environment NYSC is asking both players, parents and coaches to adhere to the 24 hour rule.
