Soccer is a TEAM game. TEAM
chemistry is crucial for success.
Playing for your school is a
privilege and an honor. Every time you step on the field, you represent
Soccer is about more than
winning. Developing and showing skills in cooperation, leadership, and
communication is key.
A good soccer player tries
his/her best. Being the best means practicing your hardest, demonstrating
sportsmanship, and being willing to learn and improve.
Practices and games are NOT
the prime opportunity for players to get fit. Players must be willing to gain
conditioning on their own outside of the regular season.
Coaches are teachers and
players should feel comfortable approaching coaches to discuss practice and
game strategies, tactics, and philosophies.
ALL players are expected to
be attentive to what coaches are saying. Coaches will say something once, and
players are expected to respond accordingly.
The 3 athletic H’s are
paramount: HEART, HEAD, and HUSTLE.
When taken seriously, playing
for your school soccer team is one of the most fun and educational experiences
a person can have. Make the most of it by putting in maximum effort while also
keeping in mind that academics come first.
