About Duncanville Soccer Association

 

About us

Passion, Energy, Execution, Personal Accountability

Everything we do starts with a passion for the game and a yearning to compete.  We start every session with a positive attitude; accept that our attitude is a decision; and make no excuses for negativity.  We also understand that proper preparation leads to execution.  We train as we play and play as we train.  We expect to out-work every opponent in every game; play intelligently; and execute efficiently. In order to achieve success, on and off the field, we must care more about TEAM (Family) than about self.  The attitudes and choices made by any individual member reflect on his or her teammates, coaches, and the Celtic organization as a whole.

DSA Coaching Philosophy

We strongly believe that the team reflects the personality of their coach. Our philosophy revolves around the core belief that players will play HARD for people they genuinely care about and people who have taken the time to cultivate REAL relationships with them. This includes cultivating authentic relationships between teammates, club mates, coaches, and administrators. We think personal relationships are critical in the motivation of young people, and motivation is paramount to success. If these relationships do not exist, a true team will never result.”

“I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude.  Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.” – Charles Swindoll
