Tulsa Soccer Camps | Taking Pride in The Right Things


Hi, this is and welcome to pride soccer training where we talk about soccer camps, a soccer games, soccer training, all things related to soccer. Um, uh, we’re located in Tulsa, Oklahoma at broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Tulsa Soccer Camps, we covered jenks as well, so we cover the entire Tulsa area. So, um, but, uh, you know, today is just a great day and we have a new person on board and named Derek Sharp, so he’s going to be welcome to the team. He will be a assistant, uh, with trading, which is great because it’s just going to amp up our training that much more and get us geared towards that much more successful training. Um, you know, one of the things that is very important and vital to a child’s performance is that nurturing environment, the environment that helps to make them feel at peace, feel calm and help them feel secure, helped them to feel like they were going to be structured.

Kids love structure, whether they know it or not, they love discipline, uh, whether they know it or not. Um, and it’s those things that we bring into our training. Um, you know, pride, pride stands for perseverance, respect, integrity, drive, and excellence. So one thing, the biggest things that was said to us not too long ago is that we are culture can be seen at the club for our, our training, a culture was that, Tulsa Soccer Camps, you know, we are always grounded in those principles, perseverance, respect, integrity, drive and excellence. Those things are very important to us. We hold all of our values, all of our, um, our principals and training kind of revolve around that. Um, and it’s very important to us, um, that we maintain those principles. Um, it stays true to the biblical background too. And um, that’s, it’s just, it’s just a very important part of our foundation and our culture can be seen because the kids operate in that.

If I see a kid that’s acting up, I quickly asked them what does pride stand for? And they’ll answer, you know, perseverance, respect, integrity and excellence. And then I’ll say, which one of these principles are you, are you a not adhering to? And they’ll be like, oh, respect, yes, if it’s that, you know, if its integrity as another one. But I always talk to them about holding true to those values because it’s what keeps them grounded. Every club has to have, or every training company club, you know, whatever you’re doing has to have. The kids are always held accountable for their actions and what they’re doing. And Tulsa Soccer Camps, it’s, it’s one of those things that it just, it’s always something that we can come back to and say, Hey, I need to hold true to these values. This is what makes us who we are.

Um, and uh, they, they fall in line right away. So it’s just a really good, a good principal, a good way of a bead. So, um, you know, I think, uh, it’s so important to always have principals that you ground yourself in a. and I’m very proud of the kids that we train. Um, recently I, I keep being reminded of the, you know, the kids that have been training with me the longest. I have seen so much progress, uh, from the. And I’m so proud of them because I have one of the girls I was talking about, one of my other podcasts, my name is jazzy and she, um, she actually won a little competition, Tulsa Soccer Camps, last night in training where we do a volley competition and she, she wanted and she’d been with me for over a year now and I can remember when she first started where she was and now she’s gotten to the point of she can strike a ball well with both feet.

I mean, it’s volleying, it’s shooting, it’s everything. And um, I’m so proud of her really. You know, I think it’s one of those things that just, it’s almost like in the enjoyment that apparent has, I almost get to that point because as a parent you’re always excited about your kid. Well, when I train these kids, I get to that point because I have put so much time into training them and invested in them. Tulsa Soccer Camps it’s just an amazing thing to see. I’m very experienced. So when you see a kid develop, if it’s really to be celebrated, it’s, it’s like, wow, you have persevered. You have stuck with it and I just think that is truly a remarkable situation. And um, it, it’s good to get to experience that. I just find that it’s, it’s enjoyable and I’m grateful all the time. And uh, it’s, it’s those kids that continue to work hard at it, you just see how it works out for them and it just, so it’s just a joy, you know.

Um, and, you know, I just keep thinking too about, you know, players like hygiene, Tulsa Soccer Camps, who have retired and started their own school pro soccer school program and a training academy where his own son went up through his academy, was sold to another club and is, it, is working for one of the other clubs in Europe and I’m just like, this stuff is just beautiful to see. And um, you know, Haji, something that was pretty cool about him is his son didn’t really know how famous he was. You know, by the time his son was old enough to know he had retired and um, you know, it’s, it’s pretty cool because he never really told him much about it. And then, um, he’s like, dad, how come all these people coming up to you? What is this? And then he starts to realize is that it’s the greatest Romanian soccer player of all time and I just think that is pretty cool.

And I liked the humility that he didn’t boast about who he was. I thought that was pretty cool because he didn’t want to know. He didn’t want to influence him in that way or you know, it’s just those types of things that I love and pride. The kids are trained hard, work, hard, humble. That’s what we, we definitely work on humility and we allow kids to celebrate. I remember the other day where the kids was upset that when they can say we are the champions, you know what? I’m in the Queen Song, I think it is. And he’s singing it and the kids, Hey, he’s bragging about. I said, Tulsa Soccer Camps, he’s celebrating when you, when you celebrate, he just singing the song and uh, you know, uh, one kid fell down and it was kind of comical how you fell down, but he was crying about it because he said they were laughing at me and I said, well, you need to learn to laugh at yourself to laugh at yourself because, and I made myself, Paul and some of the kids giggle and I was like, see, you can laugh at me and I need to laugh at myself too.

And they kind of get over it and they realize it’s not that big a deal and they just need to. I’m just need to continue to just work through those things. And that’s some of the stuff that we talk with pride. Pride is more than just a soccer experience. It is a culture, it is a, Tulsa Soccer Camps it’s a life learning adventure. And that’s what we knew of pride is that we, we established ground rules that help kids to learn how to deal with life situations. Not Everything’s gonna be perfect. Not Everything’s going to be the way you want it. Um, sometimes things are going, people are gonna Laugh at you or do you have to get over it? Sometimes you can get knocked down and you have to learn to get back up. So it’s those things that really, I feel like caused pride to be so important to a kid’s development here in Tulsa, Oklahoma in broken Arrow, Oklahoma, jenks, Oklahoma.

I think we are going to be a huge factor in developing kids and kids coming out. It’s so important they’re going to get exactly that and more than what they expected.
