PSA Soccer News
As if coaching High School our playing with a competative team all over the Midwest doesn't give us enough soccer...... We thought we should share this sport of the world with people around us that usually don't get a chance to play for whatever reason. Genesis FC and Performance Soccer are teaming up and bringing soccer to the community. Yes, open to anyone and held at Davis Park Mondays and Tuesdays all of June and July! Check out our Area Events page for the details then come join us.
Players from almost every area of the Metro have asked for more games, better programs, higher levels of competition, lower costs; We have that for you! Coaching staff with amateur or professional playing experience? Licensed? High School endorsements? Yes to all that and more.
What does that mean, "Playing at the next level"? The answer is different for each one of us, yet ultimately the same. If you are currently playing at U10 it may mean moving to a skill level that takes you into an academy team, playing U12 and moving to U13, High School moving on to the college game or pro level.
People say "Wow!" your costs are really low, must not have very good coaching or you are running a low quality program. Cost does not make a program higher quality. Good coaching and teaching the basics skills until they become automatic make better players and a solid program! You may have to look and do some home workj before you sign up with a club. Are they only in it for the money to cover their overhead? Staff salaries? Put together a win at any cost team?
How's that working for you? Might be time to look at the new people on the block!
Maybe for Iowa but no not really! There are several states where soccer exists and thrives with two separate organizations registering players, sanctioning clubs and leagues and existing together for the good of the players and sport. I can't see why that concept is so difficult to grasp since it already quietly exists here. Different players fit into different programs! The access to soccer and the diversity it offers, by natural design, is what attracts people to this sport. Different levels of play, different coaches and different styles are the things that build the soccer community. When we get satisfied with maintaining registration numbers and trying to force people into a single program to boost the number of titles won we then limit not only ourselves, we also limit everyone involved. "For the good of the game" should mean that what ever a player needs to succeed regardless of nationality, skill level, financial status; not just lip service so everyone will get the impression you are on their side. Will every player be a star? Maybe not on a higher level team or in a professional league some where on the world stage but in the individual players mind they all should feel that they are a very bright shining star that is extremely valued by all!
