The SCFC Competitive Program challenges the player to develop as an individual and as a team member. The professional staff want the players to have fun but to dedicate themselves to attending the practices, skills training sessions, and games. As such, the two practices per week are mandatory for D1, S2, and D2 as noted above. The skills training is mandatory for D1 players and optional for S2 and D2 players. Attendance will be tracked by team managers and game playing time is impacted by unexcused player absences. Missed practices can be made up. Players are expected to conduct themselves appropriately at all times and support other team members. Players are expected to work on skills and fitness as well outside designated practice sessions. Level of commitment a player shows for the game is a factor for their play level placement.
