Region 127 Coaches Mission Statement
This year region 127 aspires to be an outstanding educational-athletic organization that provides a high quality experience, in which every athlete:
· Is coached using the principles of the AYSO
· Has fun playing the game
· Feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance
· Learns “life lessons” that have value beyond the soccer field
· Learns skills, tactics and strategies of the game and improves as a player
We recognize coaches must directly make this possible, so we provide all the coaches with the tools to succeed as AYSO coaches. We are committed to creating a culture in which coaches, parents, fans, referee’s and athletes work together to achieve our mission. Go B.I.G.

SAFE HAVEN CLASS REQUIRED FOR ALL COACHES AND ASSISTANT COACHES
Coaches: Please leave the field in a neat condition. Please pick up any empty water bottles, soda cans, snack wrappers, etc. and put them in the trash. The schools and school district are kind enough to make these fields available for our use, so let’s leave them neat and clean.
