Vitesse as Platform to Soccer

We establish strong groundroots of ethics, character and   
awareness for players in pursue of their next level.   These are the concepts.

1 --  You will receive the best of what soccer has to give when you are AWARE.   Our focus is providing awareness.   

2 --  We continuously seek growth.   We stage our friendlies, where we must mature and improve.   

3 --  As competitors, we create success.   We influence situations, we learn, we are responsible, we own our losses, we celebrate our little success, we are creators.

4 --  We believe in principle, the fundamental truth that serves as the foundation for a system to develop, to enjoy and to succeed.  Around the fields we have written expectations 'how to play.'  It takes about 4 years of development when principles are instilled and feel natural.

5 --  Parents are the face of their child.   If you want your child be engaged, be principled and be grateful, you show how it needs to be done, don't assume it is done.  As parents we demonstrate healthy communications skills.   

6 --  Vitesse is a community club.   We rely on parents to keep the mood 'fun and relaxed' at all times.   While coaches share the knowledge, the parents set the feelings.  The experience is only fruitful, when parent express the POSITIVES.  




How to Watch Soccer

Soccer can be best described as abstract supported by pillars of principles.  Like an abstract painting, you learn more details about the painting when you give your explanation of what you like or don't like.   Likewise in soccer, when players are engaged in conversation, they improve, eventually making the connections.

This soccer culture is good in developing fitness, skill and also instilling the attitude 'to give your best.'  On the flip-side, we don't develop abstract and creative thinking.   For instance, we cannot comprehend 'playing with personality.'  We don't understand timing, angles and spacing.  Also, we are oblivious about getting in a clear passing lane, and, the importance, when to play your teammate in his right foot and when to play in his left foot.   Therefore, we want an environment that stimulates thinking and conversation.  We believe, we only succeed, when we remain engaged in the conversation, always learning through each other.  

We believe parents should look at the approach and values.   They should 'peel the onion' to understand what drives growth and enjoyment of their child.   The magic happens, when parents play of the moments their child was 'engaged' and those moments the child reflected 'enjoyment.'  

Moreover, parents 'have the power' making other children feel special.  More than anything, we want our children to feel special, because a believe can be of immortality.    For instance, a parent telling a child that his profound kindness makes a difference in her day.   Or, a believe that the child inspires others through her strength of tenacity and determination.   Or, the believe that God's passion is breathing through him.   

A parent is more powerful in creating the believes than a coach in sharing his knowledge.   When the parent is excited about a moment he observed for what it can become, it will eventually become reality!!!!   A positive emotion will elicit a positive responds.    

One last clarification -- the coach's role is merely to share knowledge.   The role of the parent is to fill in the emotional content giving meaning to 'engagement' and 'enjoyment.'



When we as club left helpless...

We understand the nature of sports is people being critical.   It comes with the territory.   It also needs to be understood that soccer is very complex and not everything can be resolved due to the influence of culture, unrealistic expectations, lack of experience, group composition and dynamics.   For that, we thank parents for their grace!

When parents express the positives and gratitude, 'we' are so happy and perform beyond our best.  We tend to become what parents value, including the trust to work through difficult moments.   Unfortunately, our culture predicates parents being quiet (as a tool to get their point across), being passive, skeptic or implying.   When parents communicate through their position of power, 'because they can' (rather through knowledge and care), everybody else is left helpless and hopeless.


 
Want to help,

The GREATEST help a parent can provide is EXPRESSING your encouragements and your patience as we learn.

We are always seeking for parents, who is willing to take responsibility of game management such as collecting referee money, handling roster, player cards and game jerseys for guest players.
