Promise to attend training sessions and games. I understand my attendance at training (AND TRAINING ON MY OWN) is what helps me improve my soccer skills and my understanding of the game. I understand the amount of playing time I receive in games will be based on my game performance, determination in practice, punctuality, and attitude. I know that I may receive more or less playing time than my team members and playing time is not guaranteed.

It is the firm commitment of Tulsa SC to take an active role in the prevention of drug and alcohol abuse. Our policy is no drugs, no alcohol, and no destructive behavior. We will involve ourselves with the player and parents any time that a situation has an impact on our Club or its members. It is important that we be able to trust players to obey Club rules, because of the responsibilities that we assume when we travel. However, the parent has the ultimate responsibility for their son or daughter. Violation of this policy may be the basis for suspension or dismissal from the team, or for requiring that a player return home early from an out-of-town tournament at the parent’s expense.
All players are expected to know these expectations and therefore there is no excuse for not understanding and meeting by them at all times. And above all, enjoy the game!
