Some Wish for it; We work for it.
ELITE Soccer is the competitive branch of Newark Soccer Club.
ELITE Soccer is where players will experience the highest level of training and competition in the area. ELITE Soccer teams function year round with teams playing in both Spring and Fall Leagues, various tournaments, and Northern California's most exciting competition, State Cup.
ELITE Coaches are promoted from our recreational league by our board of directors based on their individual merits, level of knowledge and capabilities. ELITE coaches are encouraged to continue their coaching education and knowledge through various training organizations.
ELITE Teams are chosen at the discretion of the ELITE Coaches and formed based on players overall skill and abilities (mental and physical). On top of that, a players attitude, work ethic, and how they will represent ELITE Soccer is also heavily taken into account.
ELITE Players should possess three basic qualities:
First, ELITE Players are exceptional athletes with the physical ability to thrive in the most difficult of circumstances.
Second, ELITE Players must know, and love, the sport of soccer. Beyond their own game, they eat, sleep, and breath soccer. They must show an undying thirst for more soccer, greater competition, and self mastery.
Finally, ELITE players must possess the right attitude and commitment. Skill alone does not make a player ELITE. It is a commitment to themselves, their team, their coach, and their community. ELITE Players, Coaches, and Families know that they are but a single piece of a much greater machine, and if they cannot be depended upon, the machine as a whole fails. ELITE is only for the most physically, emotionally, and ethically sound players and coaches, whose families are prepared for the commitment.
