Values


HUMILITY(freedom from pride or arrogance)

- In sports, business, and life, a reliance on pride and arrogance will most often be an ingredient for stunted growth and isolation.  At DEFC, we want our players to always have a chip on their shoulder and understand that learning is a lifelong commitment.  Furthermore, humility is a key ingredient to optimize a team atmosphere and sportsmanship.


EFFORT(a serious attempt, the total work done to achieve a particular end)

- As youth soccer players transition into young adulthood, they will encounter an increasing number of other talented players locally, regionally, and nationally. They will find that high motor, determination, coachability, and stamina, will often differentiate good from great.  DEFC will coach effort as an equally important asset as talent, skill, and tactical ability.


AMBITION(desire to achieve a particular end)

- DEFC is an elite club because we want elite players to perform at an elite level to become elite teams.  We want players who want to be the best.  Who have a strong passion for the game of “futboll” and who want to strive to play at the top of their potential.  We want players who want to work hard to improve, excel, and compete.


RESPECT(high or special regard)

- Disrespect for each other, towards coaches, trainers, referees, parents, and other teams will not be tolerated.  There is no higher compliment for a player or team than to be respected not only for their excellence but for how they represent the principles of sportsmanship. DEFC will be feared as a team because of our talent, skill, hustle, and tactical ability, but we will always respect those we interact with.  Rivalry and tough competitiveness is most efficiently resolved by winning the right way. Those who fail to respect each other and their opponents will lose.


TEAMWORK (work done by several associates with each doing a part but all subordinating personal prominence to the efficiency of the whole)

- Elite individual ability does not easily translate into team excellence.  DEFC will prioritize team building and foster an environment of group vs. individual success.  DEFC players will be judged on how they empower the success of their teammates on the field of play.  The question they will always ask is, what is the “right soccer decision.”  Sometimes that means passing up a shot from a bad angle and other times it means taking a player on instead of passing.  DEFC players will make decisions that advance the team and not their personal agenda.
