Today, we are asking that all clubs operate Go Games under “Silent Sidelines”.
Parents/Supporters may applaud positive play.
With this in mind, we are asking all clubs to implement “Silent Sidelines” for all Go Games matches and blitzes this weekend.
3. Allows the children to communicate with each other and make team decisions themselves.
Silent Sidelines has been used at youth sport worldwide and proved successful. This is a chance for adults to see that children do not need to be constantly instructed on the field of play. It is a chance for adults to actually sit back and watch the games without worrying about what to say next. It is a chance for children to make decisions without worrying about what Coach/Parent might say. An environment free from criticism and critique.
