Prioritizing Soccer Culture
Most developed soccer countries in the world who have performed well at the international level, have a “soccer culture” as a foundation for all citizens to enjoy. The United States is still in its infancy in this department and lacks in effort to prioritize developing this culture.
The naive Short-Term winning mentality still predominates many parents, coaches and club administrators environment.
Many claim to have the secret sauce to developing players better than anyone or promise that they’ll make your kid a professional, all you need to do is join their travel program that cost $10,000 per year which are often paid for by the 2nd, 3rd, 4th lower level teams within the age group. Dangling the carrot that by joining their club will get you that college scholarship in their “special unique college program” if you continue to pay the $3000 club dues each year plus fundraisers they enforce on you.
Many talented players quit soccer due to misaligned club, administrative, coach and parent priorities.
Parents, be honest and ask yourself, “WHY do I want my child to play sports and WHY do THEY want to play?” Even if they are a star, ultimately, the priority is to enjoy the journey, learning life lessons along the way and experience the feeling of accomplishment by overcoming challenges that builds self-esteem and confidence that are vital to a health state of mind and body.
Our commitment to you at the Dutch Football Club is that we will instill a love for soccer for the whole family to enjoy. We’ll develop players to reach their maximum potential through our proven principles so that players can compete at the highest possible level.
