Steamboat Springs Youth Soccer Association

Mission Statement:

WE INSTILL A LIFE LONG PASSION FOR THE GAME OF SOCCER THROUGH PLAYER FOCUSED PROGRAMS IN SAFE, FUN AND INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENTS. WE WILL STRIVE TO DEVELOP PLAYERS THAT EMBODY ATHLETICISM, SPORTSMANSHIP, AND TEAMWORK; ENCOURAGING THEM TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL IN SOCCER AND IN LIFE!

We value being an inclusive community organization that provides year round soccer opportunities for players at all levels to educate by striving to build character, confidence, skills, and soccer awareness. Without enjoyment, soccer is nothing! That's why we play. We want to instill a life-long passion for the game in our players. We hold our players accountable for their actions and teach them to always always put forth their best effort. Excellence comes from hard work, commitment, and putting in the work.

Steamboat Soccer has four Mantras that we have established to help build and protect our culture and will remind us what matters most and help us stay on track with our goals as players and as a club.

Ride for The Brand- SSC players take pride in everything they do. We strive to be the best we can be at all times on and off the field. SSC coaches and staff go the extra mile for their players. SSC players will do more for their coaches and teammates. We've got pride in ourselves, our team and our community. So we "saddle-up, toughen-up, cowboy-up" because we are all riding for the same team.

Own your Journey- Reflecting on the effort we put into our personal and soccer experiences past and future. SSC players are aware of the choices and decisions they make daily that effect their soccer experience. Own your journey, own what you get out of your soccer experience and your life adventures.

The Pursuit of Excellence Has No End- SSC players and coaches will find ways to do more! We are never satisfied with how far we have come. Great performers are never content. SSC players, coaches and staff will continue pushing the boundaries of their physical and mental capabilities on and off the field. We strive to live a big and full life, to put the work in to pursue our dreams, and to overcome any challenges or distractions.

Sweep the Barn- Here at SSC we leave nothing but footprints on the field. We tidy up after every game, training session, or team get together. If you see a piece of trash on the ground, pick it up. We help coaches after each session pick up equipment. We literally "Sweep The Barn".
