The goal of the Marcos de Niza Girls Soccer Program is to provide a player-centered learning environment that helps each player to develop technically, tactically, physically, and psycho-socially; as well as fostering team development. Complimentary to this player and team development, is the desire to foster the life skills of integrity, sportsmanship, discipline, responsibility, humility, teamwork, commitment and respect, as well as promote a healthy, athletic, and active lifestyle, through the sport of soccer. The coaching staff aims to utilize their love and passion for the game to help each player become a “Complete Soccer Player.”
The Complete Soccer Player: (1) is comfortable with the ball and uses appropriate techniques on demand and under pressure, (2) has an understanding of the game, (3) understands the roles and responsibilities associated with the principles of play as they pertain to attacking and defending, and (4) is comfortable in all positions or areas of the field.
By cultivating a fun and challenging player-centered learning environment, each player can develop an understanding and enjoyment of the game, as well as developmentally-appropriate mastery of the techniques, skills, and tactics necessary to become a Complete Soccer Player. Ultimately, by focusing on individual player development, our soccer program will find success and establish a foundation for winning.
