| LMSC Mission Statement
To bring out the very best in competitive youth soccer by:
LMSC has a deeply-held conviction and commitment to teaching high-quality possession soccer. Our vision is to achieve a level of play in all of our competitive age-group teams that sets the benchmark and earns our teams the reputation for this style-of-play locally (Northern California), regionally (West Coast), and Nationally (USA)
The LMSC Technical Development Program is player-focused. It is not a program where coaches build their reputations at the expense of player development. The game belongs to children who play it. It’s their game, and players should think for themselves to solve soccer situations rather than being instructed by parents from the sidelines. The Technical Development Program is designed to provide players with a level of preparation, training, practice, and competition (based on players’ ability in each team) that will enthuse, challenge, and motivate them to further improvement and to a lifelong involvement in soccer.
* LMSC competitive team culture is one of passing the ball between teammates as the basis of tactical play on offense – i.e., a series of short-range passes between players to avoid challenges to the ball and to advance it towards our opponent’s goal area.
