Principles

Training and playing principles

The major reason to join I.F.C is to learn (football and team sport), socialise, be challenged and have fun.
I.F.C. values committed players and supportive parents. We want to be a club which attracts players that want to learn and attract parents that want a respectful environment where their children are safe, learning, having fun.

We want to provide correct training at all levels. The aim therefore is to have trainers who are all qualified or trained to the Level needed to coach at I.F.C. Trainers not yet qualified are always supervised and/or have been a player for a minimum of 5 years so they understand the processes These trainers will be given training at I.F.C and also where applicable the Dutch Football Authority the KNVB. Potential new coaches/volunteers (who want to coach) will also be offered a coaching training session. Please note that new parent coaches/trainers will not be able to train/coach their own child.Coaching on match days should be done by the trainer when possible. Each team should have an assigned person to step in on match days. This person will be addressed as assistant-coach. (This will be a trainer that has been part of the training of the team).

Football is a team sport and if the players are not able to commit to training and matches it will affect the rest of their team. So I.F.C. expect player and parental support to meet trainings and matches. In general there will be two trainings of 1 hour per week and a match on a Saturday. If this does not match with player/parents expectations considerations should be made if this is the right club to sign up to.
