    Great advice! I especially like #2 and try to implement it pretty strictly. We’re not only helping them develop soccer skills, we have an opportunity to influence our players’ personal development as well. Policies are excellent at teaching. My players (and parents) agree that it’s fair for players to receive more playing time if they have been more committed (done training at home, pushed themselves at practice, shown up on time, etc.)… and unfair to give equal time to players that aren’t trying. You just have to explain the expectation up front. It’s easier said than done, but a good goal to strive for.
