As August came to a close, so does the focus on our core value for the month, safety. Our coaches at Fremont Rush stress to their players on the pitch the importance of safe play every chance they get. 

Safe play doesn’t only apply to the physical aspect of the game, but also the mental part. We’ve all seen games where the ref missed a call and players get frustrated. Their mentality changes at that moment. The game goes from calm to rough and tense all within a few seconds. Keeping a cool head and not allowing bad calls is an extremely important aspect in keeping a game safe for all those on the pitch. 

Coaches also play a large factor in the way a team performs on the pitch. I spoke with Coach Ali on what he does to keep his player safe when in a game.

“We work on playing the game the right way. I teach my boys to stay not to retaliate against opponents and to always stay humble.” 

Staying humble during a dirty game isn’t always an easy thing to do. Below are three ways players from coach Ali’s team keep a level head.

  1. “I make sure that I play my game because if I do anything bad, that’s gonna affect my teammates.”

  1. “I don’t let the opponents get into my head, and make sure that I’m communicating with my team and helping them out.”

  1. “I make sure to remind those around me to play clean, play safe, and not let anyone get in their head.”

Safety on the pitch often translates to safety off the pitch. The lessons that players can learn about safety on the field helps them out with everyday life. Keeping a cool head and not allowing things to get under your skin are things that apply to players' daily lives during work, school, and practice. 

“Staying safe on the field teaches the team life lessons about staying safe off the field.” -Coach Ali
