Our mission is to provide a fun, safe and developmental youth soccer program in the Tiburon Peninsula area. With a focus on sportsmanship, honesty, respect and fair play, the Club will be a community organization with which players, parents and the community will be proud to identify, and a positive reflection on the Tiburon Peninsula community.
A central tenet of the Club is The Player Comes First. The Club recognizes that children have different interests and abilities and that these change over time as a child develops. The Club will therefore provide opportunities for players to achieve their goals and develop to their fullest potential by providing a range of recreational and competitive programs based on the internationally-recognized model of long term player development.
The Club will foster an environment that is concerned not only with overall player development but also with player retention, talent identification and competitive excellence. The Club will promote a model of excellence in sportsmanship and conduct in players, coaches, officials, parents and spectators.
Recreational Program: The recreational program will serve children from pre-school through high school. At the earliest ages, the recreational program will focus on learning, creativity, problem solving, and fun and will prioritize individual development over team success. While many older recreational players may choose to participate in the Club’s competitive program, for many others the Club’s recreational program will provide players with competition, the ability to be part of a team, and a challenge to improve their soccer skills.
Competitive Program: For players with the requisite skill, motivation and commitment, the Club’s competitive program will strive to provide them with the most appropriate learning environment and team placement to further develop their skills and passion for the game. Where possible, this will be on teams within the Club. However, there will be times when a placement with an affiliated Club will be in the player’s best interest and the Club will work with the player and family to identify options appropriate to the individual player.
