'PLAY THE RIGHT WAY'
Play The Right Way is giving each player the right tools to express themselves individually on the field and to collectively understand how to work together to play beautiful soccer. When a team plays The Right Way, the ball doesn't only go forward, it's goes backward, sideways and every way. Not only will mistakes happen, but they are welcomed. Players must be allowed to freely think and implement what was taught at practice.
In our eyes, to Play The Right Way also means that we believe in physical play, but always respecting fair play and our opponents. We have no tolerance for unsportsmanlike conduct from players, coaches or parents. We hold our players to a high standard, and we ask that all our players, coaches, and parents embody the World Class Premier Core Values in every part of life as a way of life and always Play The Right Way.
It's About How We Play and How We Win
Naturally, kids want to win. It’s in our nature. Most of the time, we don’t have to tell our teams to go out and win a game, because in their head they naturally desire to do that.
The problem comes in, when we adults want the wins more than they do. It’s when we the adults have the expectation that winning is the only way to show progress. It’s when we think that a team is only getting better if they are winning. It’s when we disregard individual development for team results.
However, winning doesn’t denote development. Youth teams can stay at the top of the ranks, while the kids on those very same teams aren’t growing or learning new skills. The coach is only doing what is necessary to get the team the win. We don’t prescribe to their method.
