To develop a report addressing how SRI's membership upholds its mission "To provide every player the opportunity to maximize his/her development as a soccer player". Focus on the players, not organizations.
The most advanced players in Rhode Island are not given the best opportunities to maximize their abilities and succeed as soccer players.
There is a conflict between Free Market vs. Control in determining the programming designed for the State’s most advanced players. Free Market Approach (No Controls on Team #’s) Control Approach (SRI Limits # of Teams) PositiveAdvanced training is available for more players based on ability to pay. These players could advance to become elite players. Limiting # of teams could push most advanced players to those teams thus creating more opportunities for competitive play. Negative+ Distributing the State’s elite players across many teams reduces the competitiveness of those teams. Exposure to high level of competition increases skill and the exposure to greater opportunities. + Some Premier Teams do not provide coaching services commensurate with fees charged but continue to pull players from town clubs. SRI’s only control is withholding entry to USYS Regional Tourney; Limiting # of teams pushes clubs to play under non-USYS entity; pushes players out of state.
1) Increase by 25% the # of wins from RI teams participating in USYS Region 1 Tournament in 2015, 50% in 2016, 100% in 2017. 2) Increase by 100% the # of RI players chosen for the Region 1 ODP pool in 2015, 200% in 2016, 300% in 2017. 3) Increase by 25% the # of RI players participating in Premier soccer for U16-U18 age brackets in 2015. 4) Increase by 25% the perception (positive rating) of premier soccer by RI soccer players, parents, and coaches in 2015, 50% in '16.
SRI members may not be able to meet the needs of the most advanced players e.g. NE Revs Academy team, due to the reality of the State’s limited player pool size.
Free Market Control Create a balance between free market and control by opening SRI to unlimited # of premier teams while informing the consumer through objective reporting
