In October the focus is on Effort. We understand that intention + energy = Effort - and is the foundation of the best developmental platforms.
Without that formula for Effort, players would not respond, grow or find joy and satisfaction in their DUSC soccer experience.
That makes Effort a non negotiable principle for our players and coaches.
Integrating the belief that Effort is one of the most crucial aspects of performance and completely under their control, we expect our players to embrace this mantra in both training and in games. It is reflected in many ways - work rate, hustle, body language, transitions - and a core strength of any successful player and team.
Players always have a choice when faced with challenges - adjust your expectations or better yet, adjust your Effort.
