Scope of Player
Understanding why most soccer
players never develop a FULL technical training base.
Understanding the soccer spectrum.
(IT'S NOT ABOUT AGE, IT'S ABOUT INDIVIDUAL GROWTH.)
Below is a good overall look at why
most developing soccer players lack strong technical skills. The
BLACK area encompasses the full range of technical skills that
CAN be learned by any developing soccer player.
where most players end up after years of playing. Many middle school
and high school players fall into this category. It is not just
GREEN is the
player that has received a large amount of technical training and is
often the first or second year college player.
RED is the
highly advanced player. (continued below)
Most players can learn many of the
skills that are in the BLACK area, they are simply NEVER EXPOSED to
them. This is due to lack of training time and lack of knowledge of
many teachers. Completely understanding the spectrum is step
Having a SYSTEM to expose the player to more of the skills is the
Has the player ever had a training session on how to properly slide
Has the player ever learned to properly perform a shin trap?
Has the player ever gone through a session to understand why we use
angles and how to create them?
Simple technical skills that 95% of players have never learned.
SOCCER U was founded on this understanding....
Allow the soccer player to be exposed to more technical training,
more often, and they will naturally learn more and at a faster pace
than others that are not.
Don't limit a players technical training and advancement because we
are teaching to the "lowest talent" on the team or in the group.
Allow EACH PLAYER to advance at THEIR OWN PACE and each will grow
fast and have more confidence and enjoy the game more.
Talent or a "gift" must also have
practice and refinement.
