“THE ONE QUALITY THAT CAN BE DEVELOPED BY STUDIOUS REFLECTION AND PRACTICE IS THE LEADERSHIP OF MEN” – DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER

As players advance from the youth level into high school and collegiate soccer, the role of the captain goes from a token one to one of unquestionable significance. If you are currently captaining your high school team, your behavior, mindset and communication skills are key to your team’s success and the prestige of your high school. Unfortunately, these skills are not taught in traditional programs. That is a burden that most players have to carry without any instruction on how to be a more effective leader, meaning many promising captains do not fulfill their potential. Welcome to the Golden Goal High School Captains Leadership Program, where we focus on developing your ability to lead yourself and your team mates towards success, creating a legacy on the field, in the classroom and in life in general.


ARE YOU RECEIVING GUIDANCE IN ALL PILLARS OF THE GAME?

The player development model in the United States has changed dramatically and positively in the past fifteen years. You’ve probably been part of it. High school soccer has become the breeding ground for college talent, with games being televised regionally and star players becoming local celebrities. High school coaches typically teach programs with excellent technical training and tactical advice in games, but rarely have the time to coach the mental curriculums required to lead effectively, or offer supportive technology with staff specializing in those areas. Captains from different schools are never brought together and taught as a group, meaning the ability of our future leaders is left up to chance, rather than given the chance to flourish in a nurturing environment. Teams without an effective leader will fail in clutch moments, lack presence on the field and be unable to fulfil their promise, regardless of how much talent is on the field. For sport to be used effectively as a tool for teaching lessons that will last a lifetime, all areas of the game must be covered.
