The Mission of Sherwood
The purpose of the Club shall be to teach, govern and promote all
aspects of the game of soccer at all youth levels within the community. The primary aim is to develop fundamental skills, self-confidence, self-worth and team cooperation in an
atmosphere of safe, competitive fun without undue pressure. Consideration of the youth involved is of primary importance. A child's association with soccer should be a positive,
self-rewarding experience. Our Club, coaches, parents and players value winning but not before good sportsmanship, which among other things entails winning and losing with
integrity. Winning with integrity means honoring and respecting our opponent; while losing with integrity means losing without disrespect of ourselves or our opponent. The goal of
the game is not in the winning and losing; rather, in how each individual player performs relative to their ability. The Club will strive to provide appropriate competitive
opportunities for its players within the framework of National and State guidelines and structures.
