soccer coaching

It is an indisputable fact that the children are the most precious asset of their parents and of the coaching It may seem natural to assume, therefore, that the majority of adults want the best for their children.


Nevertheless, all of us who want something for our children takes-on the decline required and the time to know if that is what really wants the child? Most of the time, adults believe that they know better, and therefore, exclude children of the decision-making soccer The sport among young people, unfortunately, is a primary example of this phenomenon.

In 1987 the Athletic Footwear Association of America has sponsored a study of 10,000 students aged 10-18 who were expressing their feelings about the coaching The students have responded to questions such as: Why have they done this or that sport? Why have they stopped?soccer training And what types of changes think ought they too they are still involved in a sport that they have abandoned?

The discovery the most important for the study was that win (which was the purpose the more confessed and continued in the sport) was never class higher than seventh place (even among the athletes the most competitive).  "Have fun and improve my skills" were regularly the first two choices for which the students had chosen to play a soccer When we asked why they had stopped, three of the first five reasons were "I was not playing, "The coach was a bad teacher", and "there was too much pressure".  How many of us would have predicted this result?



The amusement is essential; if this is not "fun", the young people will not engage long the sporting activity. The development of the competence is a crucial aspect of amusement; it is more important than winning (even among the best athletes).coach soccer  The challenge the more remunerative of the sport and the main role is the coaching The intrinsic rewards (self-knowledge that grows out of the competition)soccer training are more important to create athletes of the life that the extrinsic rewards (victory or the attention of the other).

Of The authors of The American Youth and Sports Participation have proposed the following points for the coaches and parents who are willing to develop a philosophy of the alternative drive:

For coaches

Become a personal communicator (a listener and a licensor of reaction).

Acknowledge the needs of your kids and balance your needs with the tire.

Expand the perspective: you remember what you were at their age and what you could do then; do not judge the kids what you can do now.

You remember the "truths".soccer coaching  Look for workshops and training programs that are learning the skills of sports related but aussi developer your spirit of communication and your interpersonal skills that will help you with the parents and your kids. Try to work with the parents and to make full-fledged members of the team rather than watching as criticisms to avoid.

For Parents

You remember the "truths" and talk to your children. (After a game, talk about their "fun", "improvemeant of the competence", "learning experiences») .Do you see as an integral part  of the team and positive with the coach; avoid installing a conflict in the mind of your child between his parents and coaches. If you want to participate in the drive, do you propose to help? Expand the perspective: you remember what you could do with the ages of your children; do not judge by what you can do now. Develop an understanding of what your child wants the sport-- all children do not want the same things. Determine if he or she wants to be involved at all.
