IDEAS OF THE DUTCH VISION ARE:
Total enjoyment from soccer
When players are motivated
practicing 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. From soccer training the most
enjoyment can be gained in situations where
players can score as much as possible and also
have to defend. On a full size pitch children
don't have enough touches on the ball and
therefore don't learn enough.
So we suggest that children
up to the age of 11 should play games with
smaller sides and on smaller fields. This way
they become more in contact with the ball and in
match-situation this improves their vision.
Repetition is an important
aspect in the process of teaching soccer.
Practice, practice and practice again. Doing the
same thing over and over again, which was in the
early days the case in the street.
In training this means:
-not having to wait
-sufficient balls and
-good panning and
Contrary to former street
soccer training, matches are accompanied by
adults. However, this isn't always successful. 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).
That's why it is important
that coaches understand how children experience
soccer and that they know how to make things
clear to the children.
Teaching soccer, coaching
soccer, requires a lot of knowledge and
understanding of the game.
Vision" on coaching is a method designed to
teach the youth in a better way.
We are convinced that this
is the way to develop better soccer players and
to get more enjoyment out of the game.
