Core Principles

Shared by our Players, Volunteers, Coaching Staff, Administration and Board

Put the best interests of the players first by emphasizing individual long-term development.

  • We provide healthy balanced competition that supports the developmental goals of each player at their own pace, while instilling a passion for the game that inspires them to work hard and reach beyond their own expectations.
  • We seek to develop technically skilled, confident and creative players who are adaptable to the future demands of the game.

Provide the proper environment to learn important life-skills through the sport of soccer.

  • We foster a respect for the game of soccer and each player by promoting friendship, integrity and good sportsmanship in a fun, caring and supportive way. We believe the development of the player, both on and off the field, is equally important and provide opportunities to further develop their character and important life-skills.
  • We work in partnership with our parents and volunteers in an atmosphere of mutual respect, trust, and open communication.
  • We work in partnership with other soccer organizations to promote and develop a life-long love of soccer within and beyond our local community.

Inclusion of all members of our community.

  • We provide an opportunity for all the children and families in our community, regardless of their financial resources or athletic ability to achieve their soccer goals.
