Coaching Philosophy

As a coach of RYAA understand that children participate in soccer to have fun. If children don’t have fun playing soccer, they’ll soon pack it in.  

We never forget that the game of soccer is just that – a game. It’s not about how many wins and losses are accumulated. And, it is surely not about how many trophies are collected. It’s not about how many goals we score or concede. It’s all about enjoying the game and, at the same time, learning and developing soccer and life skills. 

Proper soccer development requires that children play age appropriate activities so they are able to experience, comprehend, and execute the game as it relates to where they are at their own stage of physical and mental development.  

It is about playing in different positions so the player learns all the skills necessary to develop in the game.  

It’s about receiving equal playing time, so the players are all given equal opportunity to learn.  

It’s about learning the techniques of the game through a variety of fun games where players have as much contact with a ball as possible and learn at their own rates.
