Player Competitive & Developmental Pyramid

 

Lonestar SC has been extremely successful at all levels of play in the local leagues, state, regional and national leagues.

 

Why is this important? Player development.

 

The reality is each player is unique, they develop at different rates. The opportunity to provide any player with any level of play, ensures we can get all players in the best place for their development. It also means, that when a player needs to move up a level of play because they have developed very quickly over the last six months we can do it. Likewise if a player is finding it difficult and needs more playing time and a slightly slower speed of play, we can do it. Player movement exists to benefit the players, at Lonestar SC it happens without friction between coaches, administrators or parents from 'competing' clubs.

 

Additionally, having teams across multiple levels of play in an age group creates competition between our players for roster spots. This is healthy, it develops a competitive mindset, it demands hard work from each player and it raises the bar that players set for themselves and for one another. This is a terrific life lesson for our players, much bigger than a game of soccer and it isn't always easy. Learning to manage success and failure, while continuing to develop and improve is a critical piece of the development process, for all of our players.

 

At the select level of play there are increased expectations on our players and families. There is an increased time commitment and an increased cost commitment. All teams are coached by professional coaches, following the United States Soccer Federation curriculum.

 

Our coaches focus on developing each player and each team, in the knowledge that continued player development will lead to winning soccer games. Winning soccer games, isn't the be all and end all, but it is fun for players and teams and it is undoubtedly a part of being a successful, competitive soccer player, team and club. Player development comes first, winning follows. Winning Through Development.
