PLAYER DEVELOPMENT

At Mission Viejo Football Club our coaches are required to work as a unit, not as individuals which de-emphasizes single teams and focuses on the health of the club in general, and the development of the players specifically.

USSF
COACHING
CURRICULUM

A structured, age-appropriate, USSF coaching curriculum with tiered development levels for the various stages of player education allows us to focus on fundamental skills development for the younger teams, moving on to tactical and strategic play for the middle range, and ending with highly synchronized team play at the top.

Technical training for players is available through extra sessions, camps, and position-specific clinics. Every player in the club is encouraged to attend other teams’ training sessions to gain cross-coaching experience. Further, any position-specific clinics are open to players in every position.

EDUCATION FOR COACHES

As a coach-driven club, Mission Viejo Football Club makes sure our coaches have the tools they need to succeed. To that end, we provide coaching education, club-maintained facilities and technical help. In addition, we encourage our coaches to be nationally licensed, and they are 100%. This is all to the benefit of players since qualified, trained coaches are better coaches.

FOCUS ON
TEAM BUILDING

Togetherness and a team mentality is promoted among our coaches, and we encourage our coaches to get involved with training and games at all levels. We do not require them to win at all cost to keep their job, thus allowing them the freedom to focus on players, team-building, and player development  - which is the reason most coaches get into coaching in the first place.

We do not want to lose sight of our key product: developing soccer players to their full potential.

LONG TERM GOALS

Performance and team unity with the longer term goal of player development in view makes up the focus of our coaching staff. Although, of course, we do play each game to win, wins and losses can be subject to the vagrancies of the day — ref calls, weather, missing players, etc. These are not valid indicators of the quality of a team, and should not be used as a barometer for player development or good coaching.

Flighting will be de-emphasized since most of our teams play 40-50 games per season, with League games accounting for only one third. Thus the function of League play will be to develop and prepare our teams for higher levels of play such as NPL, CRL, National League and National Cup.

DEVELOP
PLAYER
POTENTIAL

Although we fully understand the parental need to win as a barometer to measure success, that pressure is on the shoulders of the coaching staff, not the players. Further, no player will be blamed for a loss, and no player will be given credit for a win. We win and lose as a team.

ANNUAL TRIP TO MANCHESTER, ENGLAND

History being made -- Our boys played their game at the Salford field where Ryan Giggs played his youth football. The pavilion behind was built after WW2 and is the original changing room for both football and cricket. The real significance was that Sir Alex Ferguson first saw Ryan at this field, mentioned it in his book, and signed him to Manchester United in that Pavilion. The table where he signed is still there today. Sir Alex likened Ryan to “a piece of tin foil in the wind” as he was so elusive as a player.
