SOUTH BAY FC
MISSION&VISION

Building Community through the Love of the Beautiful Game

South Bay FC is a youth soccer club in the South Bay Area aimed at developing players technical skill, tactical awareness, mental mindset and passion for the game, so that they can compete at the highest level in soccer. We aim to build a soccer community where children, parents and coaches can work together for the betterment of all involved, with children’s best interests at heart. Our goal is for kids to learn life skills, character building assets and immense soccer abilities all through the great game of soccer. Development of the individual player is emphasized over team success; however, winning is a natural consequence of maximizing each individual player’s potential.

WHAT MAKES SBFC DIFFERENT?

What makes South Bay Football Club different from the other youth soccer options in the Bay Area?
We are DIFFERENT. We are DEVELOPMENT. We are COMPETITIVE. We are a UNIQUE OPTION that hasn't existed until now. We are SOUTH BAY FOOTBALL CLUB!
We believe that players will only make it to the top levels in soccer by being INTRINSICALLY MOTIVATED. That means we need to show kids how fun soccer truly can be. So we’ve made FUN the core of our mission.
We are tired of the clubs that overwork, over schedule and over promote that your kid will be the next prodigy at 10. We want our players to able to be a kid. That means they should be able to PLAY OTHER SPORTS and VALUE THEIR COMMUNITY and schools while taking soccer seriously at a competitive high level. We want our players to peak at the right time, not burn out at age 13.
We want our families to value the fact that not all of the best players you see on the US national teams took the same path to get there. We hope to help your child find their own path that is DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE for them.
We want our players to be from ALL BACKGROUNDS, that includes racially, economically and socially.
We want the word development to really mean development. That means there needs to be PATIENCE to see that development progress. We ask our families and players to have that patience.
We want our players to be the most RESPECTFUL, GRITTY, HARDWORKING players in the Bay Area full of HEART and INTEGRITY. Because we value effort and character.

OUR
PHILOSOPHY

The foundation of the SBFC philosophy comes from the teaching of Clive Charles, the legendary coach. Our Founder, Kelly Gray, was lucky enough to have played for Clive and was profoundly influenced by him in life.
  • We believe players thrive in a healthy learning environment, and learn more by exposing themselves to many different field positions, being allowed to make decisions, and have freedom to express themselves within their role on the team.
  • We believe our team of coaches strike a balance between being challenging and fun while always maintaining their status as a role model.
  • We aim to provide each of our players the opportunity to train and play soccer in an environment where they can develop both individually and as a part of a team.
  • By providing a supportive and challenging environment, we hope for all players to reach their full potential and play at the highest level possible for their ability.
  • Players are often given equal playing time in league games and are encouraged to pursue their highest individual goals.
  • SBFC teams strive to win games from our players’ passion, willingness  to learn our curriculum and their overall ability to translate it into performing positively on the field.

A club is only as good as it's coaches

The club strives to attract and retain the very best coaches for all age groups and levels of play, including those who simply want to improve their abilities, those striving for a college scholarship, and those hoping to play professionally and on the national teams.  The club also supports the further development of its coaches through individual mentoring and encouragement of ongoing education and licensing.

The SBFC Culture is What Defines the Club.

South Bay FC strives to cultivate a culture of humility and graciousness.  A South Bay FC team is a picture of professionalism treating all players, opponents, referees, parents, and coaches with respect.  Our teams are built on the idea that individual success is secondary to team success.  This practice is prevalent in every aspect of SBFC from our group of coaches to our Board of Directors and Advisors.
