JRS Program Philosophy:
The development of a soccer player is a lengthy process in which player’s progress gradually from a simple to a more complex involvement in the game. This progression requires proper guidance and direction from quality, knowledgeable, licensed coaches. This process cannot be rushed, but players should always compete at a level that is both challenging and demanding. We believe that there are four main elements that are essential for proper player development.
1) Competitive Training Environment that is demanding, challenging, varied, motivating and stimulating on a regular consistent basis.
2) Quality Coaching to help, guide, direct and assist players through their youth careers. Coaches must continue with their ongoing education.
3) Competitive Matches against teams that will push the players to their maximum capabilities.
4) Proper Equipment - Boots, Shin Guards, Balls, Proper Dress,
There is no guarantee that a player will reach his or her potential, but at least we must give him or her the opportunity to become "The Best They Can Be". Football is an art not a science and the game should be played attractively as well as effectively. Football is a game of skill, imagination, creativity and decision-making. Coaching should not stifle, but enhance those elements. There is no magic formula or short cut to successful development, coaching at youth levels is all about working with players to improve performance, not about recruiting players to build teams to win championships. Football is a player's game and the players should be considered first when political, administrative and coaching decisions are made".
