Mission Statement

Our mission is to positively impact the development of youth in our community by providing excellence in soccer and life-enriching opportunities to young players of all ages, aspirations, and playing abilities. The PMSC’s goal is to encourage, inspire and empower each player and coach to be able to reach the highest level possible within the game and in life while helping create leaders and individuals that will inspire others to do the same.

Philosophy

Our philosophy is to provide a welcoming, enjoyable, safe, and competitive youth soccer experience for players, parents, coaches, and referees. We emphasize long-term player development of the Four Corner Model: Physical, Technical, Psychological and Social elements. We believe an optimal positive team sport experience will promote a youth's self-confidence and self-esteem beyond the soccer field.

We emphasize individual skill development, teamwork, game concepts and sportsmanship. We try to provide a healthy perspective on both winning and losing. Success is defined by improvement, effort, competitive spirit and team play.

Values

Our Club is committed to instilling the qualities of ambition, leadership, teamwork, equity, respect, service to others and the pursuit of excellence.

Ambition is the strong drive for success and improvement in everything we do. We will set goals and then set about achieving them. Commitment, discipline, and motivation are important values as well, but ambition is what inspires us to succeed.

Leadership is the guiding, motivating or inspiring of others to improve the performance or the achievement of a common goal. Leadership is being consistent, leading by example, performing under pressure and doing the right things, the right way every day.

Excellence is the gradual result of the continuous effort to learn and improve each day. We will work hard to be outstanding or extremely good at everything we do as a player, coach, team, referee, and club.

Teamwork is the commitment to a common goal or mission. Teams can achieve what individuals cannot. We want our coaches and players to understand that by working enthusiastically and hard toward team goals and team success, they will also reach new heights as an individual.

Equity in its simplest terms means fairness. As a club we will strive to create a community in which equity and inclusion are embedded in all areas of our work and play, enabling all to participate and reach their full potential.

Respect is the ability to see and appreciate the value in ourselves and others. It means showing encouragement to your teammate and applauding their effort even when things are not going well. To be truly successful in soccer – and in life – you must treat all the people around you with courtesy, respect, and empathy.

Service of others is looking for a need and filling it to make positive change on your team, in your club, family or in the community. Leaders know a team, club or group is more important than themselves and they set a good example and lead by doing needed service to the group or team.
