Bigger than One - We will build a legacy by creating a family environment that places emphasis on the greater good of our athletes, our teams and our overall club. We believe that as a whole we are stronger than each of us as individuals, and we know this collective effort will allow us to become one of the strongest clubs in the country.
Bridge the Gap - We will build a legacy when we bridge the gap in all areas of focus for our club. We will come together at every level through consistency in name, artifact and vision, and we will carry out our vision through common core values, and consistency in our message. This unified effort will also allow us to bridge the soccer gap in within our club and the state of Arizona, and will help our players and teams compete at the highest level.
Focus on the Process, Have Faith in the Outcome - We will build our legacy by focusing on the process, and by having faith in the final outcome. We have a vision that the right process leads to a more successful outcome more often. Not only will this focus assist in our quest to compete at the highest level, but it will also help us provide a consistent and positive message to our members. In coaching the process, we will be teaching our players the skills they will need to succeed on and off the field, making them more attractive and more prepared for the next phase of their life. We will be value-based leaders who use our sport as a vehicle to mentor our athletes.
Outwork Everyone - We will build a legacy in part by our effort. Our vision includes each of our member’s commitment to outwork our past selves, and our current competitors. We must be leaders by example in the way we work, prepare and execute our vision. Our best moments will be when we are “doing” what we talk about accomplishing.
Professional Environment - We will build a legacy when we help to create a positive and professional environment. The components of this environment included fostering positive working relationships, open and honest communication, and common expectations on how we represent ourselves, and our club. In this environment, we will be led by our common core values, and by the respect we have for each other, and for the youth that we mentor.
Trust in the Parts - We will build a legacy when we bring our individual traits to the table everyday. It is the trust we have in each of these parts that we will differentiate our program from all others. Our collective and common vision can only be carried out if we honor our differences, and our individuality. It is in consistency that we strive to build our legacy, not conformity.
