The last few weeks have been great! We’ve launched our new Membership Program for WORLD CLASS COACHING. We’ve also updated our web sites and Coach’s Training Center making it much easier to search for and find exactly what you need for your next training session. There are also a number of new features. I’m going to dedicate a whole episode next week to all of the aspects that will help make your life as a soccer coach so much easier.
The down time has also allowed me to spend some great time with my family. During the season I always wonder what people who don’t coach every evening and weekend do with their time. During the summer I get a little taste of that.
I’ve also been working on the Technical Training Manual for this fall. I’ve made some changes for this year but really just built on the work we did last spring.
I’m really ready for the new season with my new teams. It’s always great get a chance to work with new players and continue the development of those that are returning. I have a lot more new players this year given all of the changes that have taken place with the age groups.
Today I have an interview with an extremely innovative coach. He approaches the game from a very different perspective. He’ll challenge many of your commonly held beliefs. This includes his total focus on creative dribbling and finishing, the fact that he doesn’t teach passing and receiving, he trains his teams indoors year round, he doesn’t train his player’s weaker foot and he believes that he’s found a safer way to train heading, even in younger players.
In many ways he thinks of the game differently than any coach I’ve ever known. Every coach will take something away from this discussion that will change their perspective and have them rethinking what they do and why they do it.
