What we aim to solve New!

All over South Florida families are spending thousands of dollars a year on soccer clubs that propel their children to the sport's highest levels, while thousands of gifted athletes in our neighborhoods get left behind. We worry about this inequity. Soccer is the world's great democratic game, whose best stars have come from the world's slums, ghettos, and favelas. And yet in the US, the path to the top is often determined by how many zeroes a parent can write in their checkbook.

Hollywood Wildcats FC supports and pursues social diversity throughout our programs. We are committed to providing equal access to our programs for all of the youth of our area without bias towards race, color, religion, age, sex, income level, social status or national origin. We believe that soccer is the game for all kids and that by striving to reach, develop and serve all of the diverse communities, we work to ensure that our belief becomes a reality.

Context notes

We start our PK Soccer for ages 2-4 and find that braking the "scary big field" and "shy of so many kids" early allows almost all toddlers a much easier integration into our regular age programs.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

The Club's primary goals:

- Educating Hollywood Youth, parents, fans and supporters in the sport of soccer
- Recruiting qualified, compassionate, knowledgeable coaches who understand and support a healthy, win - but not "win at any cost" attitude when passing their knowledge and skill to our players
- Supporting: play local, play fair, play by the rules attitude in sports
- Raise great soccer players, but for those who never become professional soccer players, raise great citizens of the world who learned about playing fair and giving 100 percent even while faced with adversity on the field.

- Invest resources today in order to maximize performance in the future
- Create attainable short term goals to accomplish our long term vision
- Define values to guide us on how we serve our stakeholders along the way
- Assess our current position honestly
- Assess our desired future position
- Treat stakeholders right and expect them to treat volunteers and coaches right as well
- Identify resources we will need to get from current to desired future position

Developing strategies to get us from where we are now to where we want to be in the future is one thing. But, strategies require investments – which means budgets and timelines.

For the past 2 years, under new Board, we were able to set specific, measurable, assignable, realistic, and time-bound goals that lead to personal and business growth. We set goals, determine costs and benefits of goal achievement, establish measurement tools, periodically reassess and adjust goals as needed, enjoy achievement of goals and set new goals.

By doing this and by acquiring new Board members as some inevitably move away, children lose interest in soccer or their time commitment/interest veins we are capable of meeting and exceeding our goals year after year.

Through use of data and analysis we are able to collect data/info and perform analysis which identify key insights and implications that can drive the Club forward. Through use of strategic development we develop specific insight driven plans to achieve the goals and work with all stakeholders to execute the plan. By not over promising and setting our goals too high we are able to sustain a reasonable growth while refraining from outgrowing our field(s) and time capacity restrains.

Accomplished:

- from no participation to largest GHSL Club in 3 years, with a GHSL Board member from our club
- from no tournaments to 2-3 tournaments hosted yearly
- from no exposure outside the area to statewide competitions in 3 years
- after years of only able to attract only small sided competitive teams we were finally able to field multiple full sided 11v11 competitive teams

Still Pending:

- at least one competitive team in every age division
- A team and B team in some of the younger age divisions
- professional Board Members in every possition who spend very little time on day to day running of the soccer and focus solely on Board duties
