We are a San Diego Community based Soccer Club that is based in the East County and South Bay Area. We have a clear vision of what we want for our members and that is for them to have a passion for soccer and the culture that surrounds it. There is no question that sports are a vital ingredient in a boy/girls development and soccer, for all it’s global popularity is the game that can create friendships all over the world.
Having a Proper Program Environment means having a clear understanding of our vision, vision and values for the club. We have clearly defined expectations for the club, teams, coaches, players and families. We put our players in a safe, but challenging environment where they can have fun and develop a passion for the game.
Quality Coaching is a ‘must’ for any club, and our aim is to bring in coaches who have the proper values and right characteristics to develop your child. Their knowledge of the game is vital, as is how they pass on that information to their players. We want our coaches to play a vital role in each developing player.
We feel we have a Well-Structured Development Plan that will help make our players better. Our Coaching Methodology is constant throughout the club, and will bring Intensity, Quality, Game Understanding and Competitiveness for all the components of the game in each training session. Our Player Development Program consists of 4 Branches, -Identification - Education, Application - Evaluation.
Identification is identifying our player’s short and long term goals as well each players’s potential.
Education is our age-appropriate curriculum that flow from one age group to the next. We have our training objectives which the work on in our practice activities. Each age group has priority on different skills of the game and ‘Training Emphasis’ to help develop those skills. Homework is also supplied so players can learn in their own time frame.
Application is how we develop our players to play comfortably in our style of play, which should be constant throughout our club, no matter the system that we play in each age group.
Evaluation is how we assess our players with skill, fitness and tactical testing, in-Season Evaluations and Game Performance ratings. We combine all this to create Player/Team Index which lists the strengths and weaknesses of each player and also the team collectively and ways we can improve.
Comprehensive Training is our Training Plan which are a result of a thoughtful proper periodization that w can measure when we need to peak and how to avoid burnout. We have a number of clinics and activities that all our players can participate in, giving players access to other coaches and the opportunity to play with other players within the club. Our camps are available to all players who want to do more during the periods when there is no school.
Challenging Competitive Play is where we find ourselves in league play. We are careful that we play in the proper league that is both challenging and fun for all our teams, no matter what the level. We have our own definition of ‘Winning” and it is not based on results. We have teams at all levels in all the top leagues in San Diego and also in Southern California for our Premier teams.
It is important that we have Clear Pathway of Advancement which is available to guide and manage all our players in their attempt to reach the goals that they have identified in the soccer world, whether it is playing high school, college or in the pros. While there are no guarantees in the ability to step up in levels, proper guidance is essential to give our players the opportunity. Then it is up to them! We look to supply these same opportunities to all our coaches so they can continue to pass on their knowledge to all their players.
