Philosophy & Methodology

The program philosophy at Bristol Soccer Club is to teach and promote age-appropriate learning, achieve team goals and objectives, and to develop the player’s full potential through game-like training sessions. Our responsibility is to create a safe and fun environment which supports individual growth. The Club has adopted USA Soccer’s Play-Practice-Play methodology which gives the players what they need to read the game, make quick decisions, and create their own solutions.

For the trainers at Bristol Soccer Club, it is imperative to focus on proper player development both as a teammate and an individual. This focus expects players to maintain a high level of effort and energy within their team environment during training sessions, which then translates into a cohesive unit during competition. It is also important for players to have fun and making lifelong friendships with teammates.
