PRETEEN SOCCER PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT

PRETEEN SOCCER PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT (before age 13)

1. All children are individuals and should be treated as such.

2. Their soccer environment should enhance their self-concept.

3. Our society fosters cooperation and competition. Soccer training activities can promote these behaviors.

4. The opportunity for each child to participate in challenging, meaningful and varied activities enhancing each ones perceptual motor development and total psychomotor development to his/her fullest capability.

5. Children should be able to choose their own activities as much as possible (responsible decision- making).

6. Developmental goals will be met by any of the activities that the children may choose.

7. Often times learning involves work.

8. The children have the responsibility to participate in the program with success-orientated activities.

9. Parents and the coach must structure the child’s environment to enhance the development of fitness.

10.The home environment plays an important role in the learning process (cultural patterns).

11.Coaching of our youngest players requires specialized skill (certification).

12.Coaches must educate/develop the whole child/player.

It is a pity that youth soccer is often compared with soccer played by adults. Often there are instructions given by coaches that the children don’t understand (also parents shouldn’t get involved with the coaching). Small-sided games begin to give the game back to the players and allow a more player-centered soccer environment. When players are motivated to practice their sport, they’ll learn more from it and therefore become a better soccer player. So our aim is to get as much pleasure from soccer as possible.
