Soccer Program Goals:
1. To have volunteer coaches pass along their knowledge of the game of soccer to the players. Coaches will be encouraged to give players the opportunity to learn several different positions and to rotate into these positions throughout the season.
2. To have equal participation for all players so they can have an opportunity to practice the soccer skills they are learning,
3. To foster total enjoyment of the game. This goal is not easily obtained for all players. What is needed is constant encouragement by coaches and parents alike in times of failure. No one will score every shot, stop every shot or make every play. As human beings, the fire of competition burns in each of us. As parents, coaches and spectators, we must control our own competitive nature in order to build the proper atmosphere in which these young players can enjoy what we consider one of the greatest game in the world, and
4. To provide an opportunity for young players to experience the camaraderie of being on a team, to meet players from other schools to build new friendships.
