What is the Goal or Function of this team?
If you said….. Develop as a soccer player Become a better person Be on a winning team, in a great program Prepare to play college soccer Be identified by college coaches Have fun! Building memories Have a crazy coach

Coaching Philosophy Provide an environment that…. 1. is Safe 2. is Motivating 3. is Competitive 4. is Challenging 5. is Fun 6. gives Ownership to the players 7. requires players to be Accountable.
Philosophy continued Playing time is based on training performance, attitude, attendance and tactical decisions. Everyone will play in College Showcases, Summer tournaments and league play. Training u17 and above should have a 70/30 split. 70% of the time together should be specifically used for training. 30% is allocated for games.
Player Development -Tactical The player is introduced to different formations Learns the attacking and defending principles of her position Each player feels comfortable defending and attacking in at least (2) formations Develops an understanding of situational play
Player Development - Technical Player focus much of attention on their technical deficiencies Concentrate on heading, collecting air balls, serving balls over longer distances and striking with non- dominate foot. Develop 1v1 moves (2-3)
Player Development - Psychological Build the players Confidence Improve the players Concentration Create a player who is highly committed and intrinsically motivated Player can control her emotions Techniques used to strengthen a player: o Goal Setting o Mental Imagery o Positive self-talk o Routines o Attitude Management
Player Development - Physical Obtain a high level of fitness through high intensity training at practice. Running replaces soccer training if the practice standard is low. Running and not training with a soccer ball SUCKS!
U16 Team Overview Strengths:Areas of needed improvement:
Player Expectations Attend all practices – if unable to attend contact coach prior to absence (not parent) Train and play with a CONSTANT HIGH STANDARD Treat everyone with respect Come to coach with issues BE A STUDENT 1 st, Athlete 2 nd Refrain from using profanity Follow team rules (designed by squad) Represent the club on trips in a positive manner! KICK BUTT early and often!
Parent Expectations Be positive and supportive Cheer both our team and the opponents, even the ref Encourage your child to be proactive in her development Talk to the coach about playing time and other issues only after your daughter has raised these issues with the coach Represent the club in a positive manner!
Communication Give advance warning when being absent. or a make a phone call Tell in person Texting is not an acceptable form of communication. Sorry “texter’s” Smoke signals are fine, but hard to read………
Team Growth or Lack there of Forming: individuals come together. Relationships develop between coach/players and player/players. Storming: often happens when internal conflicts arise Norming: stability and group cohesion develop, members cooperate as they accept specific roles. Performing: group members resolve issues, relations between members stabilizes and the group directs their energy to common goals
A team peaks twice in a given season and subsequently will experience two plateaus. Dr. Istvan Balyi – World recognized, is the preeminent expert in longer term team development. EFC
