One of the the missions of Tennessee Select Soccer Academy has always been to teach life lessons through the sport of soccer while fostering a love of the game, competive spirit, and sportsmanship. There will always be missed calls by the officials and there will be days the kids do not play up to their ability. We expect our coaches to always be the first to set the example of respecting the referee and all the players on the field. We want our parents to encourage the kids and push them to try their best. We want our players to continue to learn and have fun playing the game. It starts with all of us setting a positive example for the players.
