Coaching Philosophy – General: Youth soccer is the foundation of our sport in the US and around the world. It is the development of the fundamentals while allowing talent to develop their own natural abilities without being held back. The game is the greatest teacher of the game and coaches should prepare practices to allow the development of fundamentals while giving players a freedom to develop their own natural talents.
Youth Club coaches generally have 1.5 hours of training for 2 or 3 times a week. Plus 1 game per week. Tournaments are the exception. As a club coach it is your responsibility to first make the game fun at each practice while at the same time developing their fundamental skills, teaching shape (not position) and developing ball drive (an eagerness to win the ball back after losing it). This all can be done through proper practice preparation in game environment.
Coaches only have 1.5 hours of training each session so make the most of it. DO NOT SPEND half your time talking about what they should be doing or where they should be on the field. The more touches on the ball they get each training sessions adds up by end of year. Remember let the game teach shape of the team.
Games are gauges to see where your players are at as compared to other teams and it should be the indicator to what your next practice session should focus on always including the fundamentals.
It is the coach’s responsibility to put his team and players in the correct competitions to allow them to be competitive and have fun.
Ages 13 & Under should have a high emphasis on the ability to feel comfortable in thigh spaces and the freedom to go at and take on players. Tactics at this age should only be taught through keeping the team’s shape and covering up for each other.
