What Is Soccer Training?

At its core, youth soccer training is more than learning to just kick the ball. It’s about developing skills, understanding the game, fostering teamwork, building character, and learning how to be competitive.

We believe in open and honest communication between the players – where they are encouraged to speak up, tell other players what they see, and work together to become a true team.

We want them to learn to think for themselves and not rely 100% on the coaches to tell them what to do. They will make mistakes and that’s okay! We will be there to help them learn from those mistakes and help them think about what decisions they should make the next time. It’s part of the growth process.

We want the players to develop the confidence to speak up and ask questions. If they don’t know what they are supposed to be doing we want them to have the confidence to ask!

Many of our players become friends outside of their time at Vitesse! We think that says a lot about their time they spend together and how important it is for their development.

Soccer training, especially for young players, is important in shaping their approach to both the game of soccer and life. They’ll learn how to win and lose with grace and a good attitude.

At Vitesse Soccer Club, training sessions are designed to build on your child’s love for the game while instilling values like respect, commitment, and appreciation for teamwork.

Our coaches are dedicated to not only enhancing each player’s technical abilities but also ensuring they grow as individuals. In the end, we care about them as people just as much as we care about them becoming great soccer players.

What Do We Want the Kids to Learn?

Our goals go beyond teaching the basics of soccer. We want our young athletes to learn:

  • Discipline: The structured environment teaches kids the importance of discipline, both on and off the field.
  • Teamwork: Soccer is a team sport, and we emphasize the power of working together towards a common goal.
  • Sportsmanship: Winning is great, but we also teach our players about handling loss with grace and dignity.
  • Health and Fitness: Regular training promotes physical health and encourages kids to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

How Do We Want the Kids to Grow?

Growth is measured not only by achievements on the soccer field but also by the development of personal character. At Vitesse Soccer Club, we prioritize:

  • Character Development: Grounding our players in truth, respect, and gratitude.
  • Skill Enhancement: Providing a progressive soccer program that meets each player at their stage of development and helps them go where they want to go. It’s okay if your child does not want to become a soccer star or play past high school. We want them to go and put in as much as they want to but we will encourage them to keep pushing and be the best they can be.
  • Community Engagement: Encouraging involvement in local events and creating a supportive network for families.

Is There Travel Involved?

Yes, and no. Vitesse Soccer Club is proud to offer both local and travel team opportunities.

Our club soccer travel teams offer the chance for players to challenge themselves against diverse competition in a tournament setting, while our local teams provide a chance to develop skills closer to home (with the opportunity for a few travel games if the teams decide they want to do that.)

Each family can choose the path that best fits their lifestyle and the developmental needs of their child.
