THE 7 CORNERSTONES
SOCCER UNITES US We embrace and celebrate our differences because the game makes us one.
CHARACTER FIRST We honor, teach and develop the core values of honesty, loyalty, responsibility, selflessness, compassion, and discipline.
THE RULE OF FUN Fun is the lens that can make every soccer player a success. Fun takes many forms and always concludes with “I want to do it again”.
THE GAME IS THE TEACHER We are all responsible to ensure that soccer teaches the skills of a well-lived life. Teamwork, leadership, hard work, communication, creativity are just the beginning of its lessons.
WELL-BEING COUNTS A safe, healthy, welcoming experience in body, mind and spirit is the right of every soccer stakeholder.
WE ARE FAMILY-STRONG Family in all its forms—team, club, community, relatives—is the greatest asset that soccer has. Take time to connect and appreciate.
SOCCER IS THE PLAYER’S GAME Soccer is a personal journey for every player. It is for the player to see, decide, create and win or lose. It is their game.
