Program Core Values

“It’s about the journey – mine and yours – and the lives we can touch, the legacy we can leave, and the world we can change for the better.”
--Tony Dungy, Quiet Strength

The FC Wisconsin program is based on six core values that describe the culture of the players and teams, and the daily environment within the club. Every FC Wisconsin player must understand these values, represent them in their actions, and internalize them as part of their athletic character:

  • We Unconditionally Support Each Other. Our actions show that, first and foremost, we care for each other as people, and we will encourage and inspire each other every day.
  • We Display Individual Leadership. We are not afraid to share our thoughts and beliefs, to chase our dreams and take risks in doing so, and to encourage others to do the same.
  • Our Commitment Is Our Foundation for Success. Our commitment to our goals, to each other, and to the team, is the cornerstone of everything we do and will help us overcome any obstacle.
  • We Do Something Every Day To Improve Ourselves or Our Team.  These every day actions define us: extra work in fitness, training when no one is watching, encouraging others in adversity, and demanding more from ourselves.
  • We Work Harder. We will not be outworked on any day; our daily environment will demand as much physically, competitively, emotionally, and mentally as our most challenging game.
  • We Are Accountable For Our Actions. We will accept responsibility for own decisions, hold each other to the highest standards in all regards, and make choices on and off the field that we are proud of.

Performance Standards

The FC Wisconsin Eclipse “Performance Standards” are the actions that every FC Wisconsin Eclipse player must display on the field to be successful within the program, in the ECNL, and in their individual careers:

  1. We Keep the Ball.  Our teams will play a consistent style of play across all age groups, defined by prioritization of possession of the ball, with players empowered and educated to make decisions on how to maintain possession, progress through the fields intelligently, and develop attacking opportunities creatively.
  2. We Play Within Our Style.  Our players will bring their unique and personal attributes and talents to their teams, and will apply them to the benefit of the team and within the framework of our style.
  3. We Win the Ball Back. Our teams are committed to winning the ball back as quickly as possible, within a team defensive structure.  Our players will work to close space quickly with the technical quality and mental courage to tackle with timing, balance, aggression, and quality.
