To ensure that all boys and girls of all ages and abilities have equal access to the game of soccer. To help and inspire them to technically develop to the best of their abilities through a focus on individual success and personal growth rather than winning at all cost. To become the soccer club of choice for players of all levels and abilities. To develop and support a life long love for the game.
We believe that the development of both male and female players is equally important. This includes providing opportunities to play at the highest levels.
We believe that financial, social and cultural barriers should never stand in the way of player development. As an outcome, we are committed to working with families to remove these barriers.
We believe that although team success is important, individual development of young athletes both on and off the field is the most valuable take away for all of our players.
We respect and appreciate the dedication of all age groups and divisions equally.
We believe in and promote a highly technical “possession” style of play, which has been the hallmark of our top teams. We wish for all teams and all players at all levels within SWU to play this style of soccer.
We create opportunities for players to continue soccer at the Mens, Womens, Collegiate, University and Professional levels. We work with other Clubs and organizations in Calgary and elsewhere, where appropriate, to advance individual and team development.
We promote a culture at SWU where all players, parents and coaches believe that Club comes first – players play for the Club and on a team. We will endeavor to provide a variety of programming suitable for all players.
Our player development process includes transparent practices which promote the inclusion of feedback from trainers, coaches and players.
