PARENTS WELCOME TO SOCCER CLUB OF ST CLOUD

We would like to welcome all our new and returning players for the 2017/18 season of our Select and Recreation program.  Here at the St Cloud Soccer Club we are proud of our brand-new restructuring of our Select and Recreation program which are intent on delivering a first class experience to all our players from age U5-U19 years of age.  The Development of our young players in a safe, happy and caring environment is of paramount importance, with the aim of giving everyone the best possible chance of achieving their maximum potential in soccer. We will also provide parents/guardians with advice, guidance and information on the welfare and development of their children.

For the players that are chosen for our Select program we ask for commitment, self-discipline, positive attitude to succeed and a good work ethic.  We also expect the boys/girls to take charge of their own development by continuing to review and set themselves goals to achieve throughout the season.  It is hoped that this handbook provides the reader with a clearer insight into how we can work together to meet the high standards we demand, and achieve the goals we set.  We want to offer the best for our players and their parents/guardians.  With your help we can achieve this. The board of director and its coaching staff, wish all our players every success and happiness here at The Soccer Club of St Cloud.

SELECT ACADEMY & DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

What is the Select Program?

The Select Program is our travel soccer that runs a 42 week technical program aimed towards players wishing to take their skill and play to the next level. Players will be challenged within the correct environment to ensure smooth development transitions. The coaches will provide regular assessments and feedback throughout the year assessing a four corner model for each player on technical/tactical, psychological, physical and social aspects of the player’s development.   The quality of coaching is mirrored from the elite academies to aid in maximum growth potential. Payment information can be found on our website at Stcloudsoccer.com.  Payments will be made by standing order on the 1st of every month in advance. The technical program runs from July through December and February through May.
