2017 was a great year for Fremont YSC, with its revamped tournaments, games returning to the Recreation program for U10 and older, and the staff coaches all further developing their soccer knowledge and coach education. Fremont YSC was also heavily involved with the community, supporting the Chamber of Commerce with its participation in the Annual Arts Festival, and present at the Fremont Street Eats. Fremont YSC also made it’s first annual Earthquakes event, with over 100 members attending the Earthquakes vs Dynamo game in September.
For our older players with College ambitions we held a College Coaches Panel with iSoccerPath.
This Spring and through 2018, we will be focusing on our ‘Better People, Better Players’ initiative.
The current environment in youth sports has become toxic in its constant drive for more is better, and winning is all that counts. Through all of this we have lost the focus on what is the most important part of youth sports – developing good people for the future, through learning life skills.
‘Not all human beings are players, but all players are human being’
Over the coming months we will be making changes to our website as a greater resource for player and parent education, and implement rules around the club for players to learn more about discipline, respect, and leadership.
Players will not realize it now, but when they look back in the future, many life skills would have been learned through their participation.
Spring 2018 Recreation is open for registration. Building on the success of the Fall, all age groups are geared to start for the week of March 12th, all with their age specific curriculum’s, and focusing on the individual player to have a fun experience through learning individual technical skills through play.
Coaches will have an education evening on coaching for the program, and there will be an introductory session for all parents.
Camps kick off with the Spring Camp, and as always we will have plenty of weeks of Summer Camps throughout the players summer holidays. A great way for players to be out of the house getting plenty of exercising, and doing what the enjoy the most, playing soccer.
