Great Sportsmanship

. Youth Information

Please see below email received from our Head Coach of our Under 15 A squad.

During the BMYFC U15A game vs South Wallsend yesterday at Walker Fields we had a referee that made a very obviously wrong decision to award a penalty against a Magic player for a hand ball in the penalty area. It was actually the South Wallsend attacker that hand balled in our penalty area. The South Wallsend duty officer and the coaching staff asked the referee to come to the sideline where they advised him that the South Wallsend player hand balled and not the Magic player. This alone was a great gesture on their behalf as I was not expecting them to do this for our team.

The referee refused to take their counsel and proceeded to award the penalty. At this stage of the game it was still 0-0 and the referee had already awarded South Wallsend a penalty earlier in the game for a hand ball in our penalty area that Michael our keeper saved.

The South Wallsend coach then advised me that he did not want his team to win a match by such an obviously wrong decision from the referee. He proceeded to advise his player taking the penalty to kick the penalty to the keeper so that he can save it, which he did. The game finished 0-0.

I congratulated him after the game for showing everyone at that field great sportsmanship and that it is not just about winning a game at all costs. What a great message was sent to all players and parents that watched that game. I wonder how many other coaches would have done the same???

I was hoping that BMYFC would contact South Wallsend to inform them of this great act of sportsmanship as I believe that this needs to be recognised from our club to South Wallsend.

Silent Saturday – 26/05/2018

. General News

The annual Silent Saturday is being held throughout this week across Northern NSW!

The message for all ALDI MiniRoos matches on this day is to encourage all spectators & coaches to “Keep Quiet” and “Just let the kids play”.

This message is especially important to team coaches who have the opportunity to set a great example to their players and the parents by showing that the game is for the players and to refrain from any communication to the referee, instructing referee or game leader.

This initiative covers all ALDI MiniRoos age groups (5-11) with the aim of just letting the kids play and have fun without having to worry about how their performance is affecting the adults on the sidelines.

The objectives of holding a “Silent Saturday” are:
• To re-emphasise that the game is for the players and allowing the kids to simply play and have fun.
• To give the players a chance to play, learn and enjoy the game on their own.
• To completely eliminate the verbal questioning of the referees’ decisions and/or ability.
• To reaffirm to parents and coaches that players do not need constant direction to enjoy their match

Kids have the right to play without having to hear:
• “Wake up! Don’t just stand there!”
• “You have GOT to be kidding me!”
• “Why do I waste my time coming?”
• “Watch the game ref”
• “Kick it! Kick it!”

Our club prides itself on the way that our members act so this weekend is a perfect opportunity to show everyone that we take this issue seriously
