Official Saint Anthony High School Soccer Support Group

Last Autumn, the Saint Anthony New Brighton ISD 282 School Board voted to add boys and girls soccer as official high school sports. The Saint Anthony Kicks was founded, in part, to be the official parent and fan support group for Husky Soccer, and we’re excited to do so. As such, the Kicks have committed to raising initial funds to supply uniforms and training equipment for the teams, and will be sending out information on how you can contribute or participate in the next few weeks. In addition, we will be unveiling a business and company sponsorship program and have a few exciting community-focused events to announce soon. So stay tuned.  If you have would like to know more, or get involved, please contact Scott Simmons, president, at scott@saintanthonykicks.org.

A word about the Kicks Soccer Philosophy: Numerous studies have shown that team-based, league-based programs have a harder time developing skilled and confident soccer players, particularly at the younger ages. There are a number of compelling reason for this:

1: Younger players respond more to adaptive learning (as compared to directed learning), where a simple soccer skill (such as pulling the ball back with the sole of the foot) is introduced, and then the players are given time and space to practice and work it out themselves. Team- and league-based programs all too often emphasize positions and multi-player game play over individual skill, which depends on directed learning (players are told where to stand, when to kick, how to kick, how to run). All too often, stronger, faster, bigger players dominate ball touches and play, which is frustrating for other players who rarely touch the ball, and also unfair to the stronger players who aren’t challenged to their skill level.

2: No lines, no lectures, no laps. Simply put, Kicks soccer strives to provide an environment that maximizes the opportunities for players to learn by doing and learn through fun, energizing activity. When we introduce on skills, we do it simply and let the kids experiment for themselves.  Every player has a ball – there are no lines and maximum encouragement with minimal interference. Game play is small sided (3v3, 4v4, etc.) which encourages all players to be involved in the games at all times. We play on small spaces, as well, which limits the ability of a stronger, faster player to run away from the pack simply because she or he is physically more progressed than the others.

3. No cliques. Every week during game play, your player will be teamed with a different set of players than the previous week. Everyone learns to play with everyone, which encourages team-work, builds adaptive skills as each new group learns to play with each other, and helps build new relationships that might not had had a chance to develop.

4. Winning redefined. In Fall Soccer, winning is not defined by the final result on a scoreboard, but rather by the growth of each player. And every player will grow – in skills, in confidence, in love for the game.
