With busy schedules, excessive screen time, and academic pressures, many parents are finding it harder to raise happy, healthy, successful children in a fast-paced, digital world. Youth soccer's positive impact on a child's physical, emotional, and social development will help them grow throughout their childhood. Kids need fun, physical activity in their lives.
Soccer helps your child learn and grow through play. As you watch your child play soccer, you will know that while having fun they are also developing traits for success, such as integrity, respect, and teamwork.
Share your enthusiasm for team sports with your child. It's easier to meet new people when you share a common interest...soccer! New teammates will create shared experiences that can help them learn how to work together. Teams are formed in early August. Your team's volunteer coach will contact you. Geography and schools are two factors used to form teams, so there's a good chance you'll see some familiar faces at the first practice.
Practices are the best time to learn. It's a fact that practices give players the most time and opportunity to learn, develop, and play. All players have a ball at practice and get plenty of touches with it. Your volunteer coaches are strongly encouraged to have their teams play small-sided games at practice to help kids learn skills and decision-making in a game-like environment.
Encourage effort, applaud perseverance, and act with integrity during youth games. Kids should have fun, try their best, and work as a team. The fall season has 8-10 games on the weekends. Players learn that they can always control their effort and their attitude, even if the game doesn't go as expected.
Attending social events with teammates promotes inclusiveness and enhances teamwork. From club organized events like Club Day and Quakes Nights to self-organized team activities like pizza parties or footgolf, your child has an opportunity to get together with teammates during the season. Social activities enhance teamwork and relationships through shared experiences.
To measure success, look beyond the win/loss column. Kids having fun, developing new skills, learning to be a good teammate, and striving to improve are good indicators of success and a positive soccer experience.
It's more fun on the field. Your child won't benefit if they don't play. Youth soccer can help busy parents reinforce the benefits of healthy physical activity, the importance of striving to improve, and the value of being a good teammate. Our club's efforts to integrate eleven pillars of character into our programs will help your child learn the value of these positive traits too.
Volunteer coaches are essential to the operation of our recreational soccer program. These men and women are community-based volunteers who must pass a background check and LiveScan Fingerprinting before being permitted to coach. Volunteer coaches must also complete the designated curriculum in player health and safety, positive coaching, and soccer skills and tactics before the season begins.
