Coaching Philosophy

Our coaching philosophy is focused on long-term player development. Our priority is to offer players the best possible environment to grow and develop regardless of ability. Our approach in all our youth programs is to be child centered, developing the player on and off the field while keeping the game fun for all.
 
Emphasizing Fun, Developing Skills, and Striving to Win
The reason you should emphasize fun is quite simple: Without it, players may not want to keep playing. Children don’t have fun when they stand around in practice or sit on the bench during games, when they feel pressure to win, and when they don’t improve or learn new skills. Conversely, they do have fun when practices are well organized, they get to play in games, they develop new skills, and the focus is on striving to win. A focus on developing skills and striving to win takes the pressure off winning, which is out of our control anyways. But all children can improve their sports skills. And when they see that improvement, they are usually motivated to improve more. Developing skills is one of the most satisfying aspects of playing a sport.
