Club Philosophy

Through daily practice of the 5 points of the Fusz Philosophy (our core values), we encourage and inspire our coaches and players to commit every day. By developing these character traits and guiding principles within our club, we are instilling our young athletes and the mentors that guide them with the tools that will develop their skill and character to contribute on and off the field.

Respect - a fundamental of our life and sport. Respect the game, the opponent, our teammates, and oneself.

Hard Work - we believe in an appreciation of the process. There is a discipline required to improve, and an ethic to commit to development. By putting in the effort day in and day out, the edge will be ours mentally and physically when game day arrives.

Enjoyment - by cultivating a fun environment, our young athletes develop a passion for the sport that requires enjoyment in the face of adversity. Soccer is a challenging game that creates incredible bonds that span lifetimes.

Excellence - an ambition to achieve, and continually refine our goals as we set and reset our bar. Excellence is a daily practice to consistently better our craft.

Progress - for us is the continual pursuit of forward motion. We believe there will never be a time when we have reached our peak.

Sportsmanship

Sportsmanship is the fair and generous treatment of others in sports and is essential to the development of a good player. There are many qualities of good sportsmanship including respect & fairness towards the opponents/officials and enjoyment of the game. It creates a strong sense of fellowship with your competitors. It involves being both a "good winner" and "good loser". It is achieved by showing self-control, courage, good form, integrity, and persistence during the game. Always accept responsibility for any mistakes you have made and keep your perspective in the game. Understanding and practicing these ideas are critical to the longevity and enjoyment of the sport; a balance among them must be found to demonstrate true sportsmanship.
