EAST GREENWICH SOCCER ASSOCIATION

Philosophy

Extensive research has clearly shown that player burnout has become an epidemic in youth sports for myriad reasons.   Among them, physical injury from single-sport specialization and the psychological demands from game-time performance are key contributors.

Responding to these reports, the EGSA has adopted a philosophy emphasizing player development over games and winning.
The goal is simple: we want our kids to continue playing soccer past 16 years old rather than dropping out when they are 10. 


 The EGSA believes that the best way to develop skills and have fun is for players to spend more time on the field with a ball at their feet.  We want our kids to be having fun ALL OF THE TIME, while learning the essential skills to develop into great soccer players.  EGSA's focus is on  professional training by skilled coaches who understand what is required for our kids to grow as players, while in a fun, supportive environment under a unified direction.

In addition, our membership believes in all-around development of our young athletes and strongly encourages participation in multiple sports.  This not only reduces the risk of overuse injury, but builds players into better overall athletes.
