Silent Saturday / Silent SundayThis program is aimed at the Under 5 to Under 17 age groups.
It has been used overseas with a great deal of success. Its main purpose is to just let the kids play and have fun without having to worry about how their performance is affecting the adults on the sidelines.
The objectives of holding a "Silent Saturday" or ”Silent Sunday” are:
• To re-emphasise that the game is about letting the kids play and have fun.
• To give the players a chance to play totally on their own.
• To eliminate the verbal questioning of the referees' decisions.
• To help the few parents and coaches who feel they must provide constant direction, and to
understand that the kids can play very well on their own with limited instruction.
