Speed transcends far beyond acceleration. While speed in and of itself is a benefit, we look for and develop speed in all areas of the game to include decision making abilities.
A positive attitude is a must to be a part of the NYSA. We look for players who view soccer as an opportunity to compete and learn from their individual successes and failures. We look for athletes who pursue excellence, not perfection, and are committed to their coaches, teammates, and the process, not the outcome.
Being coachable is one of life’s most important skills and attitudes. The Coppermine Soccer Club takes great pride in having and developing players who are coachable. We look for active and attentive learners who value instruction. We look for disciplined players who implement feedback quickly. And, most importantly, we look for players who aren’t afraid to fail as they try new actions to get improved results.
Protect the ball from opponents. Balance and composure under pressure. Physicality and aggression near the ball.
