HYR Coach Resource Page

Updated 9/17/2021
Welcome to opening day for the fall 2021 season!  I will be at the field all day, and am happy to resolve any problems that arise.  Please save my number in your phone.  I don't always hear it on game days, but I'll be the guy walking around looking like me. 

Some of the teams do not have enough shirts.  It is a bigger problem in some divisions than others due to a lot of late additions to the league.    To make sure we just place one large re-order, I have created a quick form for you to enter the right info for your team on what they need. 
I will be asking the parents who were shorted a shirt to have their player wear a shirt of their own as close to the team colors as possible. The team colors can be seen below:

The form for you the coach to fill out AFTER Saturday's game is below. 
2021 Team Shirt Reorder Form

For practices and drills, the previous directors developed the HYR coach manual developed for soccer:
HYR Soccer Coach Manual


To keep a common set of expectations between HYR coaches and referees, we will be asking referees to carrd rule cards, and the coaches have access to the same card they can either print or have access via their phone. 

Here is the HYR Rule Card for Soccer Division 2

(FROM BEFORE THE COACH CLINIC)
Hello and welcome HYR coaches.  This page should serve as a resource to the tools you can use for a successful season. 

There will be a coach clinic on Saturday, September 11th from 9 AM - 10:30 AM  at Highlands Community Ministries.  The address is 1228 East Breckinridge Street, but please see the attached map for where to park, which is south of the building off Barrett Avenue.

The coach clinic will feature a light breakfast, instructions for new coaches, and the latest updates re: rules, etc.   Coaches also pick up their team shirts and bag of equipment at the clinic.  The bag of equipment contains a number of soccer balls, cones, and pinnies.  For head coaches and assistant coaches who have not yet met, then this is an opportunity to meet before the first practice.   For anyone who can not attend, we will have your equipment taken to Atherton for the first practice. 

The long-range weather forecast appears very favorable for meeting outside, so let's hope that continues.  Breakfast will be coffee, tea, and some individually wrapped pastries and breakfast items to avoid serving large trays of food during the pandemic.  I have pre-paid for the big coffee container to be picked up between 8:30 and 9:00 AM Saturday, and I would like someone to contact me about picking it up from the Heine Brothers Douglass Loop.  I will be at HCM setting up for the event, so I will need someone to bring the bubbling crude.  (Contact Patrick at: [email protected])

HYR relies on volunteer coaches to run practices and  manage games during the season.  The overwhelming majority of HYR coaches are parents of players on the team.  

A head coach manages the practices and has a game plan for what drill to be run at the practice.   A head coach manages the games by having a plan for assigning players to positions and managing substitutions so that each player plays roughly an equal amount of time.  If a head coach is unavailable for a practice or game, the coach will make sure to have someone on the team to pass the equipment to who will assume the responsibility for the practice or game.  Ideally, a head coach will not miss more than 2 games per season. 

An assistant coach supports the head coach with running practices and managing games.  When the head coach is unavailable, the assistant coach will assume the responsibility for the practices and games.  If neither the head coach nor the assistant coach is available, the  remaining parents on the team manage the practices and games.    Ideally, an assistant coach will not miss more than 2 games per season.
