Coaches have the following game day responsibilities:
i) If provided, always abide by the team/coach boxes painted on the field.
ii) Keep your team bench area away from the middle of field. The middle of the field is reserved for the referees and for substitutions.
iii) Stay 3-5 yards back from the touch line. Give plenty of room for the assistant referees.
iv) Do not step onto the field during play. Only enter the field when asked to do so by the head referee. Don’t run out to tie a shoe, position a player, etc. Wait for a stoppage and ask permission before stepping on the field of play.
v) Keep your parents and spectators away from the end lines (parents/spectators are not allowed behind the goals) and 3-5 yards back from the side line.
i) At the U8 level, CCNSC allows teams to have a coach along the sidelines at both ends of the field. If you are going to have a coach at both ends of the field please make sure you have only one coach on the opponents end of the field and stay away from the other team’s bench. If you only have one coach on the sidelines do not run/walk all the way up and down the sideline. If you have one coach on sideline, stay near your bench area.
