U15.16 BOYS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY
U15.16: Competition, Opportunities, Focus, Preparation, Calendar
Competition: Players must become aware of opponents and must reference the opponents’ strengths and weaknesses in training. Friendly matches, tournaments, and league play will be organized according to the standard of play, as determined by the Staff. Here, competition serves as a platform upon which our individual players can prove their value on the field.
Opportunities: The focus is, has been, and always will be the player. In this stage, we seek out opportunities for all individual players and provide the necessary resources to broker and advance opportunities. These opportunities must align with the players’ goals. Staff guidance and evaluations will help in setting these goals.
Focus: In these sensitive years of social development, players are exposed to many off-the-field influences. These are all experiences that add to the substance of one’s life. However, it is the focus of the player that must remain strong and intact throughout this stage. It is essential that the player has a positive support system to call upon, so that the decisions made during these years are conducive to success.
Preparation: Based upon goals set by the individual players, the staff becomes an enabler, preparing the players for what lies ahead. This takes place through a sharing of experience. This ‘veteran leadership’ must be passed from Staff to players, as the players must ultimately pursue their goals.
