COACHES CODE OF CONDUCT

Tiger Goalkeeping coaches are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for every goalkeeper, coach and member. Below is a set of standards that provides a framework that shows why you can trust that our coaches will always act in the best interest of your athlete!

EMBRACE MESSY LEARNING

All Tiger Goalkeeping coaches are expected to follow our own golden rule, which is to prioritize development and Embrace Messy Learning. This means that all coaches will see the goalkeepers as their own individual, and allow them explore their own development pathway. 

CREATE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT

This not only means teaching the goalkeeping basics to help them understand how to protect themselves while making saves, but Tiger Goalkeeping coaches will also consider the acceptance and inclusion that comes with creating an environment where every individual can thrive in.

RESPECT ALL PARTICIPANTS

Preparation and success of each Tiger Goalkeeping training session and event does not start and end with the coach. Our coaches are expected to have the ability to have both on-and-off field open conversations with both training goalkeepers and their parents when necessary.

HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT

Tiger Goalkeeping coaches should be seen as mentors for any of all or our training goalkeepers, and be a resource for any of our goalkeeper families. The expectation is each goalkeeper leaves a session or camp with a positive experience with their coach, and if the family has a questions that the coach is not able to answer - that coach will find a way to get them in front of someone who does have the answer!

NO CLUB RECRUITING

Tiger Goalkeeping prides itself as an organization on being a neutral youth soccer program that welcomes all goalkeepers and their families from any youth club or playing level. It is no secret that many of our coaches do work with different clubs and college programs, however, if a Tiger Goalkeeping coach is found to be attempting to communicate and recruit GKs to their own program through any Tiger Goalkeeping events, sessions or communications, disciplinary actions will be taken. 

Parents are allowed to approach coaches about club or college on their own accord.
