Coaching youth soccer is all about working with players so that they may aspire to a higher level of play. It is not about ruthlessly recruiting players to build teams just to win tournaments. Children do not play games to win tournaments. They play soccer because it is fun! They play because it is a dynamic game; a game of skill, imagination, creativity and making decisions. Soccer is the ultimate team game; a game of cooperation between teammates and a game of strategy; trying to outplay and outwit the opponent.
There are many reasons to play youth soccer and the following are just a few:
• Learning to win with modesty.
• Learning to lose graciously.
• Learning to cooperate as a team.
• Learning to socialize and learning how to solve problems collectively.
• Developing a work ethic.
• Learning the skills of a game and becoming a better athlete.
• Staying fit and healthy.
• Making decisions under pressure.
• Building long lasting friendships with teammates.
• Creating a life-long love of the game.
• Dealing with authority figures (coaches) with different personalities.
• Playing in tournaments.
• Understanding culture differences through travel.
• Preparing players for high school soccer.
The coaches at Spotswood Soccer Club not only understand the physical, psychological and practical benefits of youth soccer but also, they appreciate the wonderful life skills that the game teaches. Spotswood Soccer Club continues to promote this philosophy and will continue to promote the player as the center of “our universe.” If you agree with our philosophy then Spotswood Soccer Club is your club. Encourage your son or daughter to participate in our tryouts. There is no doubt that we shall improve their love of the game and their desire to become better soccer players.
