Title: CUSA Courage Soccer Club

CUSA Courage Soccer Club
  • Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of
    success. When you do a thing, do it with all your
    might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with
    your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be
    enthusiastic and faithful, and you will
    accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever
    achieved without enthusiasm.

Club Philosophies
  • Playing Time
  • Game playing time will be determined by the
    coaches and is based in part on the following
  • Participation at practices
  • Individual skill work outside of practice
  • Arriving at the field for a game on time
  • Arriving at the game in the proper uniform
  • Ability/Game Situation
  • Again, under NO circumstances will a player not
    play at all in a game. If a player is losing
    playing time, the coach must tell the player the
    reason for their decisions. If a player or
    parent does not agree with the coachs decision,
    they may contact a DOC.

Club Philosophies
  • Positions
  • Each player should be able to play different
    positions. In this age group, coaches should
    attempt to get players ready to play club soccer
    at the high school age groups, as well as prepare
    them to participate at their local high school.
    Coaches should train and play their players in
    multiple positions through the season. Playing
    different positions should be balanced with
    achieving success at any given position. When
    our players go to high school and club tryouts,
    they should feel comfortable and confident in any
    position. Of course, players will be more
    comfortable in certain positions than others.
    However, do not limit your players development
    by playing them exclusively in one position.
    Generally, it would be acceptable to have your
    players comfortable in 2-3 areas of the field
    (ex sweeper, center midfield, right midfield,

Club Philosophies
  • Player Movement
  • Why is it important?
  • What is most developmentally appropriate for your
  • All we have to decide is what to do with the
    time that is given to us.
  • - Gandalf, Fellowship of the Rings

Club Philosophies
  • Long Term Success
  • We play to win but we do not sacrifice individual
    or team development to win
  • We teach our players and teams to play the
    right way
  • Our success shows in the success of our players
    at U15 and above in high school and high school
    club soccer
  • Our success shows in our high rate of ODP players
    on the state teams (17 for 2007 which is the
    highest of any Dayton club through U14)

Parent Expectations
  • Communicate openly with your childs coaches and
    the club if you have a question or concern ask
  • Understand the Laws of the Game and Do not yell
    at the referee
  • No coaching from the sidelines bring a chair
    and enjoy the game giving positive encouragement
    to all players.
  • Do not criticize other players especially in
    front of your child, this can really hurt the
    chemistry of a team

Communication and Problem Resolution
  • We are here to help you!
  • Please let us know if you have any questions or
    concerns throughout the year so we can help.
  • Problem Resolution See you coach or team manager
    if not resolved see the Boys, Girls, or Overall
    Coordinator if not resolved see the DOC if
    not resolved see the President.

Player Expectations
  • Treat coaches, trainers, teammates, opponents and
    referees with respect.
  • Play hard, but play within the rules. Control
    temper at all times.
  • To understand that how you play is far more
    important than winning or losing.
  • Win without boasting, lose without excuses, and
    never quit.
  • Exercise self control at all times, setting the
    example for others to follow.
  • Respect officials and accept their decisions
    without gesture or argument.
  • Be a good sport. This means appreciating good
    play whether it is by your team or opponents.
  • Arrange schedule in order to come to practice
    regularly and on time, and to participate in
    scheduled games and tournaments. If you are early
    start a pre-practice idea like a small sided
    game, soccer tennis, juggling, etc.
  • Work hard at practices to improve soccer skills
    and understanding of the game.
  • Participate in activities with the player binders
  • Enjoy the game!
