SAGE Patch


The Americans Soccer Club will be adopting the S.A.G.E. program commencing with the Fall 2004 season.  

Purpose of the Program:

To remind us that the game is for the kids, that respect for others is a lesson we can help teach, and that setting a good example is more important than winning.

The S.A.G.E. 5-point program:


Parents, Coaches, and Players sign separate Sportsmanship Pledge forms spelling out appropriate conduct and the reasons why good sportsmanship is so important. 


Coaches must attend their mandatory preseason meeting that is used in part to reinforce SAGE.


Mandatory preseason team meetings include the showing of the Kids Come First video available from ASC.  This video helps explain how to make a youth sports a positive experience which helps kids feel good about themselves, regardless of their ability.


At each game, a parent representative from each team must be designated as the SAGE Representative.  These representative must be visibly identified with SAGE Buttons.  As directed by the referee, prior to the game the SAGE Representative will join the referee and team captains on the field for instruction.

The team SAGE representatives are not enforcers of the program. There should be no confrontations. We are encouraging everyone who hears negative comments to NOT react quickly and/or emotionally. After a pause, no reaction or a pleasant "Relax and enjoy the game" are possibilities.

Clubs take whatever action on poor sportsmanship they believe is necessary and in compliance with league rules. The consequences of inappropriate behavior by spectators, players or coaches may include a conversation with those involved and/or suggesting or mandating that they attend a sportsmanship seminar. They also may include, but are not limited to, suspension from attending matches or the last thing any of us wants, mandating that a child will not be permitted to remain in the club.


Coaches are to continually promote good sportsmanship Before, During, and After the game.
