Eleven Pillars of Character

What essential character traits do high level soccer players need? 

The answer to this question is not easy. In fact, our Vision Committee spent an extraordinary amount of time discussing it.  We believe they identified the key traits that now will become the pillars to our coaching.

San Ramon FC will strive to instill these eleven pillars of character in every player within our club.

More importantly, these eleven traits will serve every player well not only on the soccer field, but in school and later in their adult lives.
