WAYS TO HELP SOLVE PROBLEM
1: Clubs to brief parents that they are fully welcome to support their children, applauding chances and goals and saves etc, but are not allowed to shout at the referee, players from either team, or opposition parents or coaches.
2: Only one coach from each team to speak on the sideline – . Encourage the players, don’t shout and scream.
3: Respect the referee. He doesn’t tell the players or coaches how to play or coach, so why should they or the parents be allowed to tell him how to do his job? We need to take a leaf out of rugby’s book here and ban anyone from talking to or going near the ref apart from the captain.
4: Let the kids play. They will enjoy it all the more without people screaming at them and, in in order to develop, they need to make their own decisions and learn from their mistakes.
