In soccer, the game on the weekend is the “test.”
The homework occurs during training sessions and at home. Just like academic homework is to be done outside of the classroom environment, soccer practice is a necessity to ‘passing the test’.
Working with the ball on an individual basis, or doing homework, is crucial to player development. It takes time to develop and maintain relationships with people in our daily lives and the same holds true for each player in developing a relationship with the ball.
As coaches you have the opportunity to impact each of these players and be directly involved in their soccer-career development.
Thank you for your time and dedication to the children and the sport!
