Lee County Youth Coaches Certification Course
This is a mandatory certification for all Head and Assistant Coaches who will coach and come into contact with youth athletes in Lee County . This course is hosted by the club, but is run by a non-affiliated organization. The course consists of one three hour session. You will take an exam at the end of viewing two videos. One deals with youth athletics in general, and the other is "soccer specific." If you have taken this course in coaching another sport in Lee County , you will simply need to attend the last 1.5 hours to “add a sport”. If you took the course last year or this past fall, you can renew via email or mail.

You can also choose to take the course at your convenience online at their website at https://www.nays.org/nyscaonlineclinics_secure/

CCSA MISSION STATEMENT

The Cape Coral Soccer Association (CCSA) is a non-profit, educational organization whose mission is to foster the physical, mental, and emotional growth and development of Cape Coral's youth through the sport of soccer at all ages and levels of competition. Our goal is to provide a safe, structured, and fair environment in which young players can have FUN playing and learning the game of soccer. We also hope to nurture and develop a lifelong passion for the sport of soccer.

SOCCER PROGRAMS

CCSA offers both Recreational and Competitive / Premier Programs to young players seeking various levels of play and competition. The purpose of the Rec Program is to provide the beginning and experienced recreational player an opportunity to play and learn the game of soccer in a friendly atmosphere that emphasizes FUN and de-emphasizes winning at all costs! During the two rec seasons, spring and fall, teams are selected on a basis of balance and fairness. No statistics or scores are recorded during the season to promote the values of FUN & ENJOYMENT while playing the game of soccer.

For those seeking a more competitive experience and intensive training, the CCSA offers a Competitive / Premier Soccer Program. {THE CYCLONES} The purpose of the CYCLONES is to develop and prepare soccer athletes for accelerated levels of competition while still promoting the physical and moral benefits of the game of soccer. Competitive tryouts for the CYCLONES are held annually in June. During the season, players receive specialized training by professional coaches and trainers who prepare them for a more competitive environment and experiences. For the CYCLONES to be successful; players, parents, and coaches, must be committed to the training, travel, and competitive experience.

If you are interested in participating in CCSA's SOCCER PROGRAMS, please view our website and find the next scheduled registration or tryout.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THE CCSA!

Cyclone FAQ's
Answers to common questions asked about CCSA's
SELECT and ELITE CYCLONE Soccer Program

Questions answered by Aldo Nardiello - CCSA Program Coordinator

Question: What is the travel commitment for a typical Cyclone Team?
Despite the rumors, a "travel" team doesn't mean we circle the globe! Our u9 through u12 teams will compete in the local Southwest Florida League with teams from Naples to Lehigh. Our u13 and above teams compete in either the USA League in tampa or SFU/FLUGSA Leagues in Miami. Typically, our Cyclone teams attend four tournaments a year; usually in Sarasota, Naples, Tampa, Orlando, or the Miami area. Region C Cup takes place anywhere from Naples to just North of Tampa. Keep in mind that we have home games and local tournaments as well. Our older "College Bound" teams may attend College Showcase Tournaments out of state for recruiting purposes. We sometimes travel to Miami or Tampa for league play and tournaments because the Cyclones will always seek to find superior competition.

Question: Will playing for the Cyclones guarantee that my child will get an athletic scholarship for college?
No. We would consider it "less than honest" and unethical for our club or staff to "promise" or "guarantee" an athletic scholarship. All we can promise is that our professional and licensed staff will do its best to prepare our youth and "college bound" athletes for accelerated levels of play. We will do our best to nurture the technical, tactical, physical, and emotional preparation of our players. The Cyclone Program possesses a staff of coaches with considerable collegiate and professional coaching and playing experience. We will do our best to showcase and promote our college bound players. Although the Cyclones have had their fair share of collegiate and professional players, {see our alumni page!} not all youth soccer players are elite level athletes. Therefore, we would consider it "misleading" to "promise" scholarships. Most youth players play because they love the game. It is our responsibility to nurture that passion. Be VERY weary of clubs, trainers, and coaches that promise or make "implied promises" of athletic scholarships!

Question: What is an "ELITE or PREMIER" Team?
A true "ELITE" team draws and attracts players from outside its local city or town. An ELITE team is coached and/or trained by a licensed professional coach. A true elite team engages in "division one" or "premier" level league competition, and "premier" or "superior" level tournaments. Older "ELITE" teams should be groomed for college showcase tournaments. I would consider it a contradiction in terms for a "ELITE" program to label a "B" team as "premier" or engage in "lower" level cups, tournaments, and league competitions. As our program continues to strengthen and grow, and as we continue to attract highly qualified coaches, it is our hope that more of our teams will mirror the "ELITE" definition stated above.

Question: What do the Cyclone Coaches look for at a club tryout?
Our Coaching Staff follows the guidelines set forth by the United States Soccer Federation. We look at the "Four Components of Coaching."
1) Technique: The ability to dribble, pass, shoot, receive, and head the ball under conditions of pressure. "Skill."
2) Tactics: Decision making with and without the ball. "Speed of play."
3) Fitness: Speed, endurance, strength, power, and agility. "Athleticism."
4) Psychology: Mental toughness and competitiveness. "Coachability."
We remind our tryout candidates that all players make mistakes on the field, even professionals. It shows true strength of character when an athlete recovers from a mistake and moves on!
