Poway Vaqueros Soccer Club is the competitive arm of our Poway Youth Soccer League organization. The mission is to develop highly skilled, intelligent soccer players that can adapt to the different questions the beautiful game demands. Within our development model, we will nurture quality human beings that possess and exhibit respect, good sportsmanship, and happiness in life. Throughout our teachings, we will impress the significance of a quality education and a healthy lifestyle.
WHAT SEPARATES US FROM OTHER CLUBS?
OUR PERSONAL TOUCH! Our coaches and staff will foster strong, positive relationships with our players AND families. We can provide more intimate relationships because we rarely assign more than two teams per coach. We are NOT a corporate, franchising entity that seeks a handful of teams in each age group. We intend to build strong, lifelong relationships through an intimate setting, regular communication, and transparency. This is also accomplished by establishing many team AND club bonding events so that our groups bleed Vaqueros and not just their individual team(s).
OUR COACHES! Because our coaches only have one or two teams, they can properly focus their attention on each squad. Our coaches are well-educated and have extensive soccer backgrounds with the priority being your child. With that said, we will strive and achieve victory because of the quality of our coaching staff, the Vaqueros soccer curriculum, and the players they mentor.
OUR FACILITIES! We have some of the best club soccer fields and available equipment in the county. Coaches have plenty of space to work with their teams as we rarely have more than one team per HALF field. Ever wonder how you can work on a team's system of play (i.e., formation) in a 30yd by 30 yd box? Goals are always accessible for training and are often utilized to promote our first rule of The Vaqueros Way, "GO TO GOAL"!
OUR DEVELOPMENT PLAN! Our focus is to develop technical quality, a strong mental spirit, and the competitive greatness expected in each of our Vaqueros players. Once the ball is mastered, the mind is strong, and the will to compete is cemented, we are able to expand the tactical game to fit the needs of our teams. Ultimately, this will allow us to express our personality on the game with charisma and joy!
THREE RULES OF "THE VAQUEROS WAY"
1) Go to Goal!!!
