My philosophy as a youth development coach is to ultimately develop skillful and intelligent players. Therefore, coaching should focus on developing the essential skills of the game (ball skills) and decision-making on the field (tactical awareness). The essential skills are developed by using a variety of activities where each player is working with a ball. Good decision-making, the ability to think and react quickly, is maximized by using small-sided games that simulate real game situations. Scrimmaging helps bring these fundamentals out and is fun. I believe that players learn the most by playing. Exposing them to a variety of situations and positions helps them develop into a complete players. I believe that winning should not be a main objective for coach or player. Winning will be the result of the application of good ball skills and good tactical awareness.
