Play with SKILL, PASSION and INTELLIGENCE
We aim to develop every player on and off the field. SFFA’S focus includes teaching life lessons during the season, and helping the players grow in a positive environment. Sports have a truly unique quality which allows players to understand life lessons from a different view.
Pride is a characteristic that we want our players to have within themselves, their team, their club and their community. They should identify with the program goals as well as the mission and philosophy of the club.
It is recognized that to achieve big goals, smaller goals are needed to keep motivation high. We aim to teach our players to be ambitious and strive for excellence. Here at SFFA bite sized goals, and realistic goals, are given continuously. For younger players this is essential, as attention and task focus are hard to keep.
Players are expected to exhibit a highest level of commitment and are expected to participate and be present for all of the scheduled practices/training sessions beginning in August of the playing season.
There are some Sunday games. Approximately 30% to 40% of the regular season, and tournaments, involve Sunday play.
Practice/Training sessions with Professional Coaching Staff begin by the first week of August. SFFA will provide an opportunity to attend training camps throughout the summer, to help with player development.
Participation requires travel to away matches played outside of Palm Beach County. Teams may be playing more than 50% of their games away from Boca Raton. SFFA’s teams are guests of the host clubs and will conform to the playing rules and code of conduct of the host club (as may be modified by the joint playing league’s Supplementary or Consolidated rules). In short, the rules may be different than what you are familiar with, when playing outside of Boca Raton. SFFA’s teams are expected to represent the Club with respect and dignity. The players, coaches, and spectators must conduct themselves with the highest standards of respect for the rules, the officials, the opponents, and their team. Any SFFA’s coach, player or spectator who is reported, documented or witnessed by any league official from SFFA, or another club, behaving in an unreasonable or disrespecting manner may be subject to disciplinary action as deemed fit by the SFFA Disciplinary Committee based upon the extent of said behavior and actions. Such actions could become cause for a coach/player’s removal from the Evolution program.
TEAM FORMATION AND PLACEMENT
Placement on a team is not guaranteed. SFFA will recommend other Boca United FC or SFFA programs if a registrant cannot be rostered on a team. This may also include moving a player up at SFFA discretion.
