Year End Tasks
Year-End Team Parties and Gifts: Part of Spokane Sounders Club Policies include information about season-end gift-giving: “Coaches are happy to be recognized for their time and efforts. Season-end gift-giving for all coaches is optional for every Spokane Sounders player and team. If a team or player desires to give a gift to recognize their coach, the type of gift isn’t what is important; a thoughtful one is. Team gifts should be no more than $100, or $5-7 per player.”
If your team has a head coach, we suggest collecting $5 per player. If your team also has an assistant coach, then perhaps collecting $7 per player and having their gift be “smaller” in value to the head coach would be best. As far as an optional team party, please keep it simple. A picnic, ice cream social, etc. can be fun, inexpensive ways to celebrate the year. Ask folks to bring an item, rather than write another check.
