Southampton Town United aims to provide each of our players with a fun, age appropriate, soccer playing environment that challenges the individual but does not overwhelm.
We are committed to the belief that participation in soccer should be a privilege that is enjoyed by players, parents, coaches, and supporters alike, while giving everyone the opportunity to reach their Technical, Tactical, Physical, and Psycho-Social Potential.
Southampton Town United takes a developmental approach to the education we provide our players, ensuring that we create soccer players and fans for life, not just the next calendar year.
We encourage all players to be self-reliant on the soccer field and confident to express themselves without fear of mistake and error.
At the youngest ages, this is done through a firm grounding of the fundamentals of soccer, maximizing contact and exposure to a soccer ball. This is initially done individually, and then in small groups.
As players grow, they are encouraged to work within the team environment, developing a patient, possession based style of soccer that eventually leads to teams that play through the lines of defense, midfield, and offense to create chances on goal.
In doing this we also appreciate that soccer, and sport in general can play a huge part in the character development of our players and therefore will strive to instill the values of hard work, character, passion
