Role of Youth Sports
Sports is an incredible opportunity for youth to develop life skills.
- All players should have an opportunity to develop and grow
- Sports (soccer) is a vehicle to teach lifelong skills, provide a fun experience and develop community.
- Wins and losses and competition are best viewed in how children experience and learn life skills from them.
- Adults/coaches are incredibly important in their capacity to teach important life skills through the experience of sports
- Family and community are a critical foundation for the success of players and clubs
- We cannot take youth sports too seriously, it is a game for youth, not adults
