Understand the difference between BUC and traditional soccer training. Get to know what the three pillars of "beyond soccer" are.
According to a poll from the National Alliance for Youth Sports, around 70 percent of kids in the United States stop playing organized sports by the age of 13.
Some studies made by experts in the field of sports, children's premature withdrawal from sports is due to various imtrapersonal constraints; such as lack of pleasure when playing (not having fun, getting bored), anxiety or stress generated by excessive criticism and pressure from coaches, in addition to many children not getting along with coaches.
Thus, BUC understanding these reasons and aiming at a better use of the child within soccer, we created a differentiated methodology.
Beyond Soccer is not just an isolated phrase at BUSA. Here, we care not only about playing soccer, but about the person. Scoring goals, dribbling, special moves and other things are important, but who is the person behind these skills? This is the person we want to transform! Through sport we can influence hundreds, thousands of children to become better people; people who respect others, who manage to have fun without excluding their friend, who are willing to help those in need.
The Beyond Soccer methodology comes to bring Brazilian roots, to show how important soccer is in the formation of the culture of a community.
The journey, the challenges, knowing how to deal with defeats, with difficult moments and learning to enjoy all life's processes. Results are cool, are important, but without the three fundamental pillars, none of that matters.
Therefore, by being part of the BUC Family, these three words will be the basis of our relationship, between parents, players and coaches:
RESPECT, EXPERIENCE AND DEVELOPMENT.
Keep that in mind when you choose BUC to be a part of your child's life. Who do you want him/her to become Beyond Soccer?
