About Plantation Eagles Football Club
The Plantation Eagles Football Club is one of the oldest and largest clubs of its type in South Florida. It is a premier soccer club featuring competitive teams for boys and girls playing in various leagues in the state under the auspices of the Florida Youth Soccer Association and run through the cooperation and sponsorship of the Plantation Athletic League.

All of the coaches are USSF licensed. Many have played professionally or on national teams and are supervised by the board of directors for the club. Specialty trainers for goal keepers, fitness, and conditioning are provided to our teams. Our fields and facilities are considered to be among the best in the country.
Since 1987 we have hosted the Thanksgiving Holiday Classic tournament which draws over 200 teams from the South to our community for a fun but rigorous test of soccer skills. In addition, our teams are encouraged to participate in other local and state-wide tournaments to further improve their performance. All of our players are exposed to collegiate interests and urged to participate in the Olympic Development Program.

Changing the Game in Youth Sports

Changing the Game in Youth Sports

On April 26, 2014 I had the honor of presenting a talk at TEDx Bend Oregon entitled “Changing the Game in Youth Sports.” The power of the TED platform, and its international recognition as a brand that brings “ideas worth sharing” to the forefront of conversation, was such an incredible platform to be able to present the 14 minute version of the Changing the Game Project mission. You can see it here:

For Kids ONLY!

This column is for the kids. Adults can stop reading now.

Children begin playing football with no emotional attachment to the game.  They need to have an experience that makes them want to come back.  An experience that makes them want to play independent of adults. In our desire to provide football for children, it is easy to forget this.  While our approach to football has become more organised and structured, the opportunities for children to play spontaneous or street football have become fewer and fewer.  Many children’s first contact with the game is through organised sessions at a designated place and time.

A child will make almost any environment their playground once given the opportunity. In playgrounds, children learn to assess different situations, predict outcomes, take risks and develop confidence in their own abilities. They instinctively seek out opportunities to play.  It is the football coach’s responsibility to respond by creating an environment that intrigue, excite and stimulate.  In such football environments, children are able to explore both themselves and the world through the game.  The coach must also create the right balance between preserving the child’s sense of freedom and ensuring learning takes place.

The French philosopher René Descartes once said: “I think, therefore I am.”   Perhaps he could have said: “I play, therefore I am”.   It is through play that children learn and it is through play that children consolidate what they have learnt.  Play by definition is intrinsically motivated.  It is the child’s way of doing things.  It is simply what they do.

Play comes naturally to a child, just like sleeping or eating.  The need to play remains throughout our lives. But we give it new names.  A footballer playing at the top of his game might say he is “in the zone“.  Scientists and artists engrossed in their work talk about “the flow“.  It is still just PLAY.
And Play is our starting point.  It is where we begin.
