ABOUT THE SILENT GAME

One game every season is designated as a silent game. This means no instruction is to be given to the players from the coaches or the fans. The silent games will be in the middle of the season.

Although the term "silent" is used to recognize the day, the fans do not have to be "silent". Parents are still encouraged to cheer for the players when they make a good play or score a goal.

The "silent" pertains to the coaches giving instructions to the players AND "sideline coaches" who like to coach or give instructions to the kids from the parents' side of the field.

The silent game gives the coaches an opportunity to evaluate the kids on how well they do without any instruction, while allowing the players to see first hand the importance of talking to each other on the field.

Girls: Silent Sunday

Boys: Silent Saturday
