The Dolphin Philosophy

For the U-18 season, The Dolphins92 coaching staff has focused on team tactics and functional skills training with emphasis on the psychological and physiological aspects of the game to help the girls prepare for collegiate soccer and beyond.  For many of our players this season represents their final year of competitive soccer.  So in reality, this final season is more about being together and enjoying each others company, our competition and the beautiful game.  For soon our players will move on to bigger and better things.  We hope we have instilled in them a great love for the game that they will carry throughout adulthood; regardless of whether they continue to play or teach soccer; regardless of level - competitive or otherwise.

The development of a truly successful soccer player does not occur over night but is a journey that can only be measured in years of dedication, not days.  For Dolphins past and present, ‘Our Mission’ has always been to provide these terrific young women the opportunity to compete at the highest level available to them and to help them develop together as a team, both on and off the pitch.  That is, we believe the character and composure developed in soccer carry over into everyday life.  After all, life is soccer...or is soccer life?
