Soccer has few set plays and demands hundreds of individual decisions on the part of players. Accordingly, our coaching focuses on fundamentals (ball skills) and decision-making (tactics). Good fundamentals are maximized by using as many activities as possible with each player working with a ball. Good decision-making is maximized by using as many activities as possible employing small groups. Scrimmaging puts the whole game together and is fun. All players are expected to learn all skills and all of the positions.
Winning games is not considered to be a primary objective. Winning is considered to be the result of the application of good ball skills and good tactics.
