Social Fun Health Responsibility Why do we want kids to play soccer? Psychological Descipline Failure
Tactical The Core • Match • The objective of the training session is to prepare players for competition. The game shows the tactical, technical, physical and psychosocial development of the player. Technical Match Physical Psychological
Four Complementary Components • Technical • All players in the team have to be individually competent and proficient in the most important skills for each position. For example, a central midfield player will need different techniques and expertise as compared to an outside back. • Tactical • This component helps the player fit into the team. Our aim is to create clever players, capable of adapting to the constantly changing circumstances of the game. • Physical • Strong and resilient players will provide a significant advantage to the team. A tired player will struggle to think properly and is prone to commit more errors. • Psychological • The human being is often affected by his/her emotions. We will train the players to use these emotions to their advantage and turn them into strengths and not weaknesses.

Coaches GuidelinesTraining Sessions • Make your sessions: FUN! FUN! FUN! • Competition is a great tool to make the sessions “Fun”. • Coaches are encouraged to demonstrate the activities. • Coaches should be enthusiastic and extremely positive with the players. • Filling the Emotional Tank – “Magic Ratio” 5:1 • Coaches should challenge players. • Coaches must direct comments or criticism at performance rather than the athlete. • Remind players that each player must have a properly inflated ball. • Coaches must dress like a coach (i.e. wear the VYS or company uniform). • Never leave a player on the field unattended. • Ask players after the session what they learned that day. • Play with the players when the opportunity occurs. They learn by what you say as well as what you do.
Coaches GuidelinesTraining Sessions • Coaches should allow flow of training. Stop play only if there is confusion of the setup or an injury. Instruction should focus primarily on individual technique. • If a player gets hurt during the training session, the coach must inform the parents after the session. • Coaches should use the same terminology so that all sessions are consistent. • Session must be in progression stage (first - without pressure / second with pressure & Simple to complex) • Get off the field immediately at any sign of lightning and/or thunder. • Coaches must be on the field 15 minutes prior to the session. • No talking to other coaches during sessions unless it is something related to the session that needs to be addressed at that moment. • Always contact your team’s head coach at least a day before the session to learn the topic of the week so you can prepare yourself for the session. • Make your session Fun!
