Why Chantilly Soccer Club?

With so many choices what differentiates the Chantilly Soccer Club from the rest?

  1. We believe the key ingredient to developing a love of the game and learning the game of soccer is fun;
  2. We believe in our curriculum to develop players the "CSC Way";
  3. We believe in a growth mindset to learn and improve;
  4. We believe soccer should be accessible to all players who have a desire to learn the game;
  5. We believe teaching the ideals of sportsmanship, fair play, respect, and teamwork, and developing a love of the game of soccer are the most important elements to youth soccer;
  6. We believe a competitive match at any skill level can be found within a 20 mile radius of Chantilly, VA;
  7. We believe because soccer requires long term development and is a late stage specialization sport where players peak in their mid- to late-twenties (early thirties for goalkeepers), that no child should be considered an 'elite' athlete. Pele, who won the World Cup in 1958 with Brazil, was 17 years, 8 months, and 6 days old.
  8. We believe the best coaches are dedicated in order of priority: to the health and safety of players, teaching the ideals of sportsmanship, fair play, respect, and teamwork, and long term individual player development of soccer skills, knowledge of the game, and performance.
  9. We believe all coaches at CSC should have age-appropriate USSF coaching licenses;
  10. We believe all coaches at CSC should teach the 'CSC Way' using and implementing CSC's curriculum.
  11. We believe that everybody has soccer in them and the best coaches have the ability to bring it out of each player;
  12. We believe the role of the soccer club is to provide the best environment for every player to reach their highest potential;
  13. We believe the goal of every player and coach is to reach the next level; 
  14. We believe in a player-centric, holistic development model: the US Youth Soccer Player Development Model;
  15. We believe kids in Zone 1 (U6-U12) should participate and sample mulitple sports- not specialize in one sport. Specialization starts at U13 where players can choose soccer as their primary sport. 
  16. We believe in providing parents the best resources to make the best decisions for their soccer playing children.
  17. We believe the goal of competition prior to U13/U14 should be on players to do their best rather than compete to be the best. 
  18. We believe young athletes should not be professionalized; rather young players should develop at their own pace and strike a balance between soccer and outside activities;
  19. We believe soccer isn't necessarily recreational or competitive but rather how much a child is committed to improving as a player.
  20. We believe in long term individual player development- developing player's techical, tactical, physical, and psycho-social skills within a team environment. 
  21. We believe it's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game.
  22. We believe the US Youth Soccer Development Model is the best youth soccer development model in the United States, if not the world.
