AYSO Region 10’s (Palos Verdes Peninsula) Silent Saturday is absolutely absurd. 

And I’m a coach!   (And this is my very first petition I’ve started because I care about my girls and the rest of the soccer players.)

I coach GU10 (10 year old girls) & this is my second year dealing with this ridiculousness.   And I REALLY hope my team, the rest of the teams and I are not subjected to this again. 

What is Silent Saturday?  It is a failed attempt going into PLAYOFFS to let players “just play” after they’ve hopefully learned after 7 weeks the necessary skills to play a game without any coaching.  

Sure, it sounds so nice & sweet, right California?

I hate to break it to the organizers of this silly philosophy/rule that soccer is a coached sport, just like all other sports.   The players have been coached all season and rely, like all sports, on the coach for direction.  ALL SPORTS are coached and should remain being coached and yes, all the time. 

Okay, let them play...without coaching on “Silent Saturday”.  But why?

What REALLY is the goal here?  Who does it benefit?

Is it for the kids?  Of course not.  They don’t care AT ALL.  In fact, my entire team thinks it’s absurd, no, they think it’s a PUNISHMENT!

This is a terrible plan that was created by some parents FOR THE PARENTS.   

THE PARENTS are the ones who want to see their kids “just play” without coaching, not the kids. 

Let’s end the idiocy.
