Boston Rams Club-Wide Expectations:

Full year commitment is expected.
Players should target a 100% attendance level in the required program (training and/or matches). We realize that conflicts do arise. Therefore, the importance of attending whenever possible is stressed.
Attendance records may be kept for Rams programs. Reasons/excuses must be provided for all absences. Participation at training sessions will be considered in future roster composition and present playing time.
In addition to the required program, there will be optional activities/clinics. All players are encouraged to attend these activities in order to maximize their development potential.
Participation in club tournaments is strongly encouraged.

Tryout Policy for Current Players:

All current players who seek a spot on the Boston Rams teams for the next soccer year are required to attend June tryout dates for their age-group.
For current players, the tryout evaluation is of secondary importance to the overall historical evaluation of the player but the tryout evaluation is VERY important.
All tryout attendees will receive notice of their offer status within 3 days of the age groups last tryout date.
At the u9-u18 age-groups, all offers will be for a specific RAMS team.
Coaching assignments are not firm, and are subject to change.

Zero Tolerance Policy

Boston Rams Soccer Academy supports a Zero Tolerance Policy. The policy states that all individuals responsible for a team and all spectators shall support the referee. Failure to do so will undermine the referee’s authority and has the potential of creating a hostile environment for the players, the referee, and all the other participants and spectators.

No one except the players are to speak to the referee during or after the game.

Exceptions: Coaches may ask questions before the game, call for substitutions and point out emergencies during the game, or respond to the referee if addressed

Absolutely no disputing calls, during or after the game, no remarks to the referee to watch certain players or attend to rough play. NO YELLING at the referee, EVER, and no criticism, sarcasm, harassment, intimidation, or feedback of any kind during or after the game

Violators may be ejected and are subject to disciplinary action

If coaches or spectators have questions regarding particular calls, rules, or a referee, or wish to give feedback regarding a referee, please contact the town soccer club’s referee coordinator for the game in question.

Zero Tolerance Violations

Boston Rams Soccer Academy considers any violation of Zero Tolerance by parents or coaches a serious issue. Disciplinary action resulting from Zero Tolerance violations are subject to the Board’s discretion and can include warnings, suspensions, and/or a permanent loss of coaching positions.

A parent or coach does not need to be issued a yellow or red card during the game to be in violation of the zero tolerance policy. Any comment in the referee’s report indicating a zero tolerance violation could result in any disciplinary action listed above.
