Philosophy

Winning is not a sometime thing, it’s an all-the-time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit.

Soccer was not offered at Luxemburg-Casco until 2001, and then only as a club sport. However, in just over a decade this program has grown exponentially. Our Varsity boys and girls teams together have claimed x conference titles and x playoff wins, produced x first-team all-conference players and x second-team all-conference players, and ammassed a xx-xx-xx record. Critically though, our ambitions far outpace our past achievements.

The goals of this program are:

  1. to develop well-rounded young men and women
  2. to produce intelligent players prepared for the next level
  3. to win the right way

Producing Intelligent, Prepared Players

Soccer is a game based purely on individual decisions that must be made rapidly. Unlike so many other sports, there are no “plays” or routines in soccer. This sport consists of fundamental techniques and concepts that must be executed at the individual level in order to be successful as a team. This is why we work to produce intelligent players who are able to make decisions on their own within the flow of a game. We believe that the ability to make quality decisions quickly, coupled with sound technique, provides a foundation for players hoping to play at the college level.

Developing Well-Rounded Young Men and Women

There are no shortcuts to becoming great at anything in life – hard work and dedication are prerequisites for success. We promote these concepts along with the recognition that team chemistry and camaraderie are critical to any organization hoping to achieve its goals. We also uphold a strict academic standard for our student-athletes.

Winning the Right Way

We believe that success is a result of doing things the right way. When we are able to achieve our first two goals we are confident that winning follows.
Our coaches continually strive to achieve these goals by giving their players the tools to succeed. Our coaching staff is comprised of licensed and highly knowledgeable individuals who are passionate about soccer. Expectations at this program are higher than ever. Thanks to the tireless work of all of our coaches and the members of the L-C Soccer Club, this program has excellent resources and a pipeline of talented players. We will continue to provide the tools our players need for success, and it is up to our players to seize the opportunities that will present themselves.

 

Take your victories, whatever they may be, cherish them, use them, but don’t settle for them.
