SSC Player Expectations

I have been offered a position to play with the Steamboat Soccer Club. I understand that playing soccer for SSC is a privilege and not a right, and, by accepting this invitation, I wholeheartedly agree:

  • The entire team will shake hands with the opposing team and acknowledge the referees at the end of each match.
  • Treat players, parents, opponents, coaches, and referees with fairness, generosity, courtesy, and respect.

  • Having a growth mindset instead of a fixed one.

MENTAL HEALTH

Athletes are just as likely to suffer from mental health issues as non-athletes.
