The Texas Heatwave Soccer Club ("Club") believes that the pursuit of excellence in sports helps to develop maturity in children and young adults and that the experiences a player has with the Club will be beneficial throughout his or her lifetime. The Club believes that a youth sports program should be holistic and that competition should produce more than wins.
Winning and competition are only part of the equation of a successful program or season. Winning is transient, but life skills learned on the field of play and in training sessions are enduring and last a lifetime. Good sportsmanship, physical fitness, goal setting, self-evaluation, problem solving, dealing with dissapointment, developing a positive self-concept and group loyalty are skills and ideals which can be utilized long after a players career has ended. To this end, the Club will strive to instill these skills that will enhance a child's development as he or she matures to adulthood.
