Cajun Soccer Club is excited to announce a strategic partnership with the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy (JFSLA) to establish the CSC Girls Leadership Academy that will focus on key leadership tenants of: TEAM, SELF, COMMUNITY, SCHOOL and LIFE. While continuing to focus on delivering one of the region’s best competitive soccer programming, we will also expand our commitment to develop leaders on and off the field. The mission of LYSA/CSC is to administer a complete soccer program for all players with the focus being player development, sportsmanship, and community involvement.
This program will help our players to become community leaders as they continue to work towards their goals. The CSC Girls Leadership Academy will kick off with a Sports Leadership Camp as part of our 2018/19 competitive season preseason camps and will include programming over the 2018/2019 competitive soccer season.
“When two organizations have the same vision to make the commitment to not only deliver best in class soccer programming and passionate about developing leaders on and off the field it is a fantastic partnership” said Julie Foudy, Former Captain US Women’s Soccer Team, 2x Olympic Gold Medalist, 2x World Cup Champion and founder of Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy. “Our team is looking forward to work with the players, parents and expanded CSC team to extend the JFSLA curriculum in an engaging and fun environment.”
“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Julie Foudy and JFSLA in order to extend our soccer programming and enhance our commitment to our membership” said Michael Ritch, LYSA/CSC Executive Director. “It has been a vision of our organization not only to develop players on the field, but to enhance their skill set in order to be successful where ever their lives take them beyond soccer. We will use the Girls Leadership Academy to build a framework and launch the Boys Leadership Academy in future seasons."
“I’m proud to announce that SF Youth Soccer has become a VIP Partner with the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy. I cannot speak highly enough about the skills work, the integrated leadership and service components, or the commitment of Julie Foudy to girls in sport, particularly soccer.” Scotty Kober: Executive Director
“From a Club and parent perspective, Julie Foudy’s Leadership Soccer Camp was a great experience. The Foudy organization is well run and responsive to our Club members’ needs. As a parent, I sent my two daughters (ages 13 and 15) for the first time and both girls loved the real life experiences and soccer programs offered at the Camp.” John Montagh: Board of Directors
We also wanted to thank all of the people and organizations below that have believed in the concepts we are teaching and have taken the time to distribute information, tell a fellow student or encourage someone to register or apply for a scholarship.
If any of these organizations are in your area please take some time and find out more about them. We obviously share some common values and we think they are special. Julie Foudy
