Spirit of ’93 - Team Philosophy

PHILOSOPHY
The Spirit of ’93 Boy’s Soccer team will be known for their sound ethical approach and a positive attitude towards the game. Team members are to be treated with dignity and respect and are thus expected to treat others the same way. Sportsmanship and fair play create a winning environment. Winning is a by-product of a positive attitude and positive actions.   

PLAYING STYLE
It is our desire for the Spirit of ’93 Boy’s Soccer Team to have a reputation for clean, hard play and attractive, possession-oriented soccer with a creative flair.  Our players are encouraged to play as simple as possible making the game easy and fun for themselves. Passing, combination play and an attacking attitude all within the framework of a system of play combined with a commitment to teamwork and a positive attitude form the foundation of our playing style.  

TRAINING
Small sided games allowing as many touches on the ball in every session is a major focus.  Fitness is soccer specific and creative with players required to attend weekly sessions with Jason Riley, former U17 MNT Trainer.  Training sessions focus on technique and tactical play.  Video sessions are used in an effort to show the player where improvement needs to occur as well as supporting excellence.   Our focus is to have 3 training sessions to every 1 game.  Team trainers consist of Mark Shepherd, DOC as head team trainer, Ogi Perucica, current USF player and Mike Connell, former Tampa Bay Rowdie professional under the direction and support of Head Coach Brian Dozark. 

PLAYER DEVELOPMENT
The philosophy of player development at Florida Soccer Club is to create a player friendly environment.  With the game being the best teacher, training sessions are focused on technique, tactics and allowing time for free play so that lessons taught can be executed and supported w/o fear of failure.  In addition it is our goal to provide our players with the necessary tools, experiences and exposure to maximize their individual potential within the team concept. Exposure to colleges/universities is a major focus at this point in the player development.  The Spirit of ’93 team schedules showcase tournament play in an effort to expose our players to college coaching staffs.  All players are encouraged to play the beautiful game at the collegiate level.
