Player Expectations




Player Expectations


The coach under the guidance of the Director of Coaching selects the players.  The coach’s commitment to the player and the player’s commitment to the team and Sparta United Soccer Club are for the entire competitive season (June 2011-May 2012).  It is important that players observe the guidelines established by the team, Sparta United Soccer Club, leagues and UYSA.
