Star’s Football Family-
Hoping you had a happy 4th of July and got to spend some time with your family. It is always a special time for me personally, I truly appreciate the hot summer nights when I keep my daughters up way too late for all the right reasons. Memories of bbq, fireworks, and catching fireflies will fuel the soul through the many long hours that are ahead.
Now that we have that behind us it is time to take a collective deep breath and gather ourselves for what will be an amazing season! Over the past week, we have put some finishing touches on the summer plan and it is time to kick the tires and light the fires! IT IS GO TIME! The season is here and time is of the essence. We have 20 days to commit, connect and care for each other. Each day will lend itself to the next. Every minute has a plan and every practice has a goal. Bottom line the summer is essential!

JOURNEY VS DESTINATION
As we embark on this new season, I want to stress the importance of focusing not just on the destination we are striving to achieve. The top of the mountain is certainly a great goal, but to make this a reality, we must first embrace the journey we are about to take. The day-to-day climb will feed our souls and build the behaviors that we will need to reach the destination. Focusing on a destination is not a terrible thing to do but often it is just a point on a map and it offers no benefits until the destination is reached. On the flip side, when we focus on the journey we can appreciate each small step that we take in preparation for reaching the destination. Starting tomorrow, our slow ascent to the top begins.
In our preparation paradigm summer camp is the unofficial start to our season. While no camps are mandatory, our player’s attendance is an essential part of their development. With limited time, each day is a highly choreographed production with finite goals attached to each learning opportunity. Absences are expected, but players are encouraged to keep up online with all installs as a part of our accountability value. Again, our goal is to provide an ELITE experience for all participants. Lack of accountability or preparation on the player’s part will inhibit that experience. I say this not to scare anyone but to simply be transparent in our expectations and standards.
Finally, our communication loop must be clear, concise, and accurate. Please take the time to read emails, newsletters and check our website www.scn4thphase.org As always, if you have any questions please reach out to any of our group leaders
