LONG-TERM

PLAYER DEVELOPMENTA comprehensive development approach


Long term player development ltpd

LONG-TERM PLAYER DEVELOPMENT (LTPD)

  • A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH

    • Player centered

    • Holistic

    • Developmentally appropriate curriculum


In order to learn develop children require

In order to learn & develop, children require:

  • Relationships with responsive adults

  • Active, hands-on involvement

  • Meaningful experiences

  • Opportunities to construct their understanding of the world (a process supported by the three previous constructs)


Basic principles of developmentally appropriate

Basic principles of developmentally appropriate:

  • All domains of child development (social, emotional, physical, cognitive) are important and interrelated.

  • Many aspects of child development follow a consistent documented progression, with later skills and proficiencies building upon the others already acquired.


Basic principles of developmentally appropriate1

Basic principles of developmentally appropriate:

  • Rates of development vary from child to child and even vary between domains of development within the individual child.

  • Development and learning takes place within the dynamic interaction of both biological maturation and personal experience.

  • Early experiences have profound effects, and there are optimal periods for certain types of learning and development.


Basic principles of developmentally appropriate2

Basic principles of developmentally appropriate:

  • Play is an important vehicle for developing self-regulation as well as social, language, and cognitive development.

  • Development and learning are advanced when children are challenged just above their competency and when they have many opportunities to practice new skills.


Basic principles of developmentally appropriate3

Basic principles of developmentally appropriate:

  • Children’s experiences shape their motivation and approach to learning (persistence, initiative, flexibility) and these dispositions in turn influence their learning and development.

THE HOW


Education

EDUCATION

  • BOARD

  • COACHES

  • MANAGERS

  • PARENTS

  • COMMUNITY


Coaches are the teachers

COACHES are the TEACHERS

  • OUR COACHES MUST

  • Allows for differentiation/individualization


U8 u10 coach s meeting

TOOL BOX OF COACHING APPROACHES DESIGNED TO ENHANCE THE INDIVIDUALS DEVELOPMENTAL EXPERIENCE

SLANTY LINE THEORY

GUIDED DISCOVERY

SMALL SIDED GAMES


Differentiation slanty line theory

DifferentiationSLANTY LINE THEORY

STRAIGHT-LINE APPROACH

High-water / Low-watergame- the rope starts on the ground and everyone jumps over it...Then two children raise the rope to a new level. As children are unable to jump over the rope they are ELIMINATED until only one person is left...

The problem: It ELIMINATES those who need the activity the most


Differentiation slanty line theory1

DifferentiationSLANTY LINE THEORY

SLANTY LINE

Mosstontakes the same rope and SLANTS IT.

Now…

  • Each child can participate at THEIR OWN ABILITY LEVEL

  • Each child is CHALLENGED

    Children will not continue activities in which they are continually eliminated or wait to take turns.

    Given opportunities, children seek out challenges and take risks.


How do we apply the slanty line theory to training

HOW DO WE APPLY THE SLANTY LINE THEORY TO TRAINING?

  • Discreetly

    • This method is intended to increase player success

  • General application- full group

    • Can you beat your score?

      • Players are competing against themselves and their challenge is relative to their current level

  • Specific application- individuals

    • Address players individually in the flow of the activity to increase or decrease their challenge

  • Group application- divide group by ability on that skill

    • Address groups individually in the flow of the activity to increase or decrease their challenge


U8 u10 coach s meeting

GUIDED DISCOVERY


What is it

What is it?

  • Method that uses effective age appropriate questioning

    • Guided questions

    • Empowers players to discover

      “I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand’ - Confucius


Why use guided discovery

WHY USE GUIDED DISCOVERY

  • It improves the learning process for the players- active learners

  • It gives the players the opportunity to practice problem solving-real time

  • It empowers players to make decisions and take risks

    “Asking the right questions takes as much skill as giving the right answers.” - Robert Half


Examples of u6 u8 questions

Examples of u6 & u8 Questions

  • What should you do to see where your teammates are?

  • What part of the foot do you use to make a short pass?

  • Where should you aim when shooting on goal?

    EXAMPLES OF U10 & U12 QUESTIONS

  • How can we get the ball down the field quickly?

  • What happens when you pass the ball behind your teammate?

    THERE ARE NO WRONG ANSWERS!

    MAY NEED TO REPHRASE THE QUESTION


Positive coaching responses

Positive Coaching Responses...

  • Good idea! Can you show me?

  • Great....so how could we do it faster?

  • I like that answer...what other skill can we use to get the ball to our teammates?

  • Now you’re getting the idea!


Effective questioning

Effective Questioning

  • Need to pre-plan questions

  • Gain the players attention

  • When is it appropriate to ask questions

  • Wait time for responses

  • Reinforcement

  • Prompting/Probing

  • Distributing questions


Pitfalls

Pitfalls

  • Players sometimes answer without real thought, they just call out catchwords or phrases they have heard from the coach i.e. space, pressure

  • Rhetorical questions

  • Not giving players time to think and respond

  • Too many questions sequentially


U8 u10 coach s meeting

SMALL-SIDED GAMES


What are small sided games

WHAT ARE SMALL-SIDED GAMES?

Games played on smaller fields with fewer than 11 players a side

BENEFITS OF SMALL-SIDED GAMES

  • Skill development; more touches on the ball

  • Tactical development; more decision making opportunities

  • Fun and enjoyment; goal scoring chances increased

  • Game understanding; positional play is greatly expanded

  • Intuitive development; transitional play is increased and becomes automatic


Study conducted by sports university of cologne

U8 u10 coach s meeting

POSSESSION PHILOSOPHY

& GAME FORMATIONS


Possession philosophy

POSSESSION PHILOSOPHY

  • DEEMPHASIZING THE LONG BALL

  • Playing the ‘long ball’ is counterproductive to long-term individual, as well as collective, development

  • They will get scored on-they will lose possession-It’s ok!

    • We will not compromise for short term results

  • Learning to play the ball out from the back is essential for development

    • All teams must feel comfortable playing the ball from the back through the midfield and from there to the final quarter of the field


  • Possession philosophy offense defense quick transition

    POSSESSION PHILOSOPHYOFFENSE-DEFENSE QUICK TRANSITION

    • When we have the ball

      • WE ARE ALL PLAYING OFFENSE

    • When they have the ball

      • WE ARE ALL PLAYING DEFENSE


    Uh formations

    UH FORMATIONS

    Per the US Soccer Curriculum Guidelines, UH teams will play in the following formations.

    • 4-a-side = 2-2

    • 6-a-side = 2-1-2

    • 8-a-side = 3-3-1

    • 11-a-side = 4-3-3/4-4-2

    U8 development note

    U8 DEVELOPMENT NOTE

    It should be noted, the US Soccer Curriculum places no emphasis on tactics at the U8 levels. Organization, positional play, and game outcomes should not be a part of the training program. Set plays and patterns of play are not considered age appropriate, primarily because any focus on teaching those things will take time away from technical instruction. 



    U8 curriculum topics

    U8 CURRICULUM TOPICS


    U8 modified game rules

    U8 MODIFIED game RULES


    Why no goalkeeper at u8

    WHY NO GOALKEEPER AT U8?

    55 USA state soccer association technical directors on the position of goalkeeper:

    “We believe goalkeepers should not be a feature of play at the U-6 and U-8 age groups.

    All players in these age groups should be allowed to run around the field and chase the toy – the ball. For teams in the U-10 and older age groups, goalkeepers should become a regular feature of play. However, young players in the U-10, U- 12 and U-14 age groups should not begin to specialize in any position at this time in their development.”


    U8 u10 coach s meeting

    WHY NO GOALKEEPER AT U8?

    • Children want to run, kick the ball and score goals.

    • Need to know how to play as a field player first.

    • Developmentally not ready- visual tracking acuity not developed until 9-10 yrs old

      • Can only react not anticipate
