"Whose Your Mark"
What opposing player are you guarding? Find that player and stick with them. You will hear this mainly on opposing team throw-ins and corner kicks.

"Not in the Middle"
Defensive goal kicks and passes are never to go through the middle. Always keep them outside.

"Focus"
Keep a clear mind on the field. Focus on your job throughout the game. If you focus on the game for the time you are there, mistakes will be at a minimum and you will always come out feeling good about your performance.
