It is the belief of this club that one key ingredient in the success of competitive team sporting endeavors is clear, consistent communication between coaches, players and parents. This document is one way of explaining in detail the expectations competitive soccer will place on you as a member of LAPFC. It will help clarify some areas of potential confusion and at the same time answer questions about the club and team’s decision-making process.
As you have committed to become a member of LAPFC, please take the time to carefully read this handbook.
The club and each team’s success are dependent on a dedicated, knowledgeable and licensed staff. LAPFC is comprised primarily of volunteers and only the coaching positions are paid positions. The extent of each team’s success depends on the work and dedication of the Players, Team Administrators, Parents, and the Coaches. Talented players alone will likely achieve minimal results. It takes a combination of talent, hard work, and a little luck.
Welcome to LAPFC. We wish you and your sons and daughters the best of success participating in the most popular sport in the world.
