It is the goal of this program to facilitate the development of each player while ensuring the successful attainment of or his/her full potential. Each player receives professional instruction in individual skills as well as team tactics. Instruction focuses on correct and proper technique while presented in a motivational and organized manner. Positive reinforcement of performance on and off the field dominates the overall approach to the game. Moreover, the coaching staff promotes the important sporting attributes of sportsmanship, fair play, teamwork, and personal/team pride. Commitment and dedication from the parents, players and coaching staff are required to establish a top quality program.

Individual Player Goals

  1. Our goal for individual players is to teach them the skills, techniques and game tactics necessary to compete at the top level of soccer.
  2. Devote each session and training opportunity to challenging the individual level of play for each player.
  3. Provide the opportunity for each player to find the true meaning of hard work, dedication, camaraderie and teamwork. These are the characteristics that make champions on and off the field in every avenue of life.
  4. Build life-long friendships.
  5. Create an opportunity, for those interested, to obtain college athletic scholarships, make State Teams, Regional Teams as well as United States National Teams.

Team Goals / Guidelines

  1. Compete at the very highest level of soccer each and every session. Day in and day out, the team must always be challenged. Playing against similar or BETTER competition only raises their level of play both short term and long term. Please note, winning every game is not necessarily the ultimate goal and does not mean we are not finding success. Success is found in defeats as well as victories.
  2. Successfully compete in the state tournament. (Moving on to Regionals and Nationals)
  3. Enter and be competitive in the top regional tournaments.
  4. Attend “Showcase” tournaments for the older players trying to enter collegiate soccer.
  5. Have fun and enjoy the game in a highly competitive environment.
  6. Playing time is based on ability.
  7. Proper attitude and the ability to follow coach directions are imperative.

Player Responsibilities

  1. Be on time!
  2. At every soccer outing (practice, game, out back at your house…) always, always, always, give it your best effort. You never lose when you put forth your honest, best effort.
  3. Be a team player by accepting your role on the team. Teams are made up of individuals working TOGETHER. One player, regardless of skill or talent, is never larger than the TEAM. Your role, however small or big, is vital to the endeavors of the team.
  4. Be passionate about the game.
  5. Approach school and the classroom with the same rigor and determination as on the soccer field. Good grades and good soccer skills is a formula for success.
  6. Come to practice and games with shin guards, appropriate footwear that includes running shoes, outdoor soccer shoes and indoor soccer shoes, appropriate soccer attire.
  7. Help at practice and games by picking up cones, pennies, and following directions.
  8. Be a good listener and stay focused. Do not distract others and the coach.
  9. Take care of restroom issues before practice.
  10. Only team members are to be on the team side during games and practices.

Parent Responsibilities

  1. Support the entire program.
  2. See to it your child attends all soccer function.
  3. Make payments for dues, uniforms, tournaments and other items on time and in the correct amounts.
  4. Be positive at all times. Do not allow any child to hear something negative about a player, the team or a coach. Children do not fully understand the nuances of language and negative statements can have drastic, long-term negative effects.
  5. Be a part of the whole; lend a helping hand when you can.
  6. Spend time with your child outside of soccer practice or games doing soccer related activities such as watching a professional or college soccer game.
  7. Be punctual dropping off and picking up your child from practice.
