Strive Soccer Club - Fall 2023 Newsletter

Strive families, welcome to Strive Soccer Club inaugural season. The start of a great journey is here. After a great turnout at tryouts we are starting the 2023/24 season off in an extremely positive way. We are so thankful for all the support of the local community and all our families as we head into the forthcoming year.


Player & Personal Development

Player development is at the core of what we do. We strongly believe our players and teams need to be pushed beyond their current limits in order to grow and be successful in the future. As coaches we are not satisfied with mediocrity and we do not want our players to be either. We want our players to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. As a club, winning for us is players, week in and week out, winning their personal battles, training hard and being respectful and humble human beings.


Manchester School of Soccer support

Manchester School of Soccer will continue partnership with the club by offering coach education for all select and academy coaching staff plus additional player developmental training in the form of private lessons, camps and Center of Excellence weekly training.

Zero Tolerance Policy

Youth sports are a great opportunity for a child to build self-esteem and learn fundamental skills. It’s also an opportunity for adults to become positive role models and to teach the value and importance of good sportsmanship. Strive Soccer Club wants you to enjoy the great game of soccer and our Zero Tolerance Policy is in place in an effort to assist you and your player throughout the season.


So, just a reminder about expectations for spectator behavior: please support your entire team, refrain from coaching (remove action verbs from your cheering), and understand that making decisions on the field, which will include making plenty of mistakes, is the optimal way for players to develop. The leagues in which Strive Soccer Club teams play continue to emphasize the importance of all adults at games modeling appropriate behavior; when winning, when losing and all the ups and downs in between that come with competing. Referee availability continues to be a challenge; soccer games cannot take place without officials and poor spectator/parent behavior makes it harder to find and retain officials.



Best of luck to all players and teams in the upcoming season and best wishes to all for a fun, developmental season on the pitch!


Go Strive!
