current and future genera-
tions of U.S. soccer players.
"Everybody's learning. All
the coaches, they're also lear-
ning. It's a learning ex-
perience for everybody. It's an
up-and-coming game. I think.
I hope!"
As a coach, Phillips tries to
help the young players enjoy
the game by de-emphasizing
winning as a goal. "I have the
old-time Olympic ideal. It's
not the act of winning or los-
ing. It's taking part and hav-
ing fun. When you read the
by-laws of ROYSA, the first
thing that they say is that
soccer has to be fun. Because
for a kid, if it's not fun, you've
lost him. At least in the
under-eights there's no em-
phasis at all on the winning
or the losing. No standings
and no trophies. It's just so
they can learn and have good
fun. It's the same thing for
the under-10s and the
under-12s. I think in America
there's too much" emphasis
on winning, "especially at
this tender age."

But Phillips understands
that most kids have com-
petitive instincts. "From the
kids' point of view, I think
deep down they like it when
they win and they don't like
it when they lose . . . But it's
how they view the whole
thing and how the coaches
react to that that's important.
Having said all that, we won
(last week) and it's nice that
we won. But it's not the
number one thing we're try-
ing to do."
Phillips is pleased with the
development of soccer in his
area, in this first season with
four local teams. But he looks
forward to the future.
"All in all, we're very hap-
py with where we are. One
day, hopefully, if we can get
enough kids, we can form our
own association and play as
an association against the
Royal Oak teams. But that's
a long way in the future,
that's when you have 10
teams."
Maybe by 1994?
