NPFC Parents Creed
I recognize that I am an important role model for my child. I understand that North Port FC programs are for the players and not adults. I will support my child through positive, constructive, and quiet comment about their play. I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support and respect for all coaches, players and referees, and will expect the same from my child. I understand that referees are human, (and often young) and will show respect for the considerable time and effort they devote to soccer. I pledge to help my child fulfill his or her commitment to NPFC and the team by (1) keeping abreast of information pertinent to the team; (2) supporting the coach and assisting the team and the NPFC organization as needed; (3) getting my child to games and practices on time, properly equipped and prepared to play; and (4) notifying the coaches of absences and any medical conditions associated with my child. I will refrain from sideline coaching (a player may be doing what the coach wants!) and will strive to make my child’s playing experience a positive one. I will respect the coaches time and pick my child up promptly after practices and games. I will endeavor to attend as many games and practices as possible.

"Teaching Players One Touch at a Time"
Keep it fun is the essence of our teaching methodology. No matter what the age or ability level of a player, fun and excitement combined with learning produces the optimal results. We want all players that play for NPFC to totally enjoy themselves in the safest environment, while they receive a high level of soccer coaching. We want to share our passion and knowledge of the game to our players. We want our players to experience learning "one touch at a time…The NPFC Way!"
Our guarantee is that each and every player will be fully prepared for the next level of soccer. There is no club anywhere that better prepares their players for Competitive soccer than NPFC. Our results speak for themselves.
Appropriate training is the most important element to the NPFC philosophy. Every player wants to succeed, and we want everyone we work with to succeed. All sessions and soccer training goals must be attainable by the player. We have given careful consideration to program content and design to assure that what is taught is age and ability appropriate. This is where our staff excels in training techniques. Our staff is able to modify each element of training to make it challenging yet attainable to all ages and abilities. Each training session will be geared for success.
Exposure to high level soccer coaching and demonstration is essential to soccer skill development. Soccer players in order to grow and develop must be constantly exposed to high quality play, instruction, and utmost demonstration. Our staff is carefully chosen based on their ability to demonstrate and instruct in a clear, concise manner to all ages, sexes, and ability levels. To be able to play the game is not enough to be on staff; you must also be able to teach the game at a high level and be passionate about soccer education. Additionally, NPFC is recognized throughout the country as one of the top youth clubs. We play in the highest ranking tournaments and continue to be successful.
Repetition is the key to skill development. Simply, the more touches on the ball a player is given the quicker that player's progress and growth. We believe in teaching players one touch at a time. Repetition with positive reinforcement, positive guidance, and correct teaching will rapidly set players on their way to achieving their soccer goals. "Perfect practice makes perfect".
The Game is an important element in our program. We consider playing the game to be the best teacher. The use of small-sided soccer combines to produce game like situations and increases exposure to the ball. Not only does it solidify their individual skills, but also it helps them to understand the more intricate aspects of soccer and team play. Our staff constantly monitors and evaluates game play, pointing out areas of negative and positive play as reinforcement teaching. The excitement of playing, combined with the positive reinforcement of techniques, tactics and team play, will lead to an overall enjoyable experience.
