At the heart of our mission as trainers is the betterment of the technical and tactical abilities of our players. Our practical focus is in helping them acquire and hone as many skills as possible. The game temper per se should be built upon this.
Our philosophy is about nurturing players while respecting their nature; a guide to self-discovery; an invitation to explore the game and what it may bring. We do not seek to capture minds but rather to free them in consideration with the understanding of the game of soccer
There are many schools of thought – and of soccer – and in our search for creating a soccer identity we do not pretend to negate them all but instead and in consonance with our philosophy we seek to learn from them and we are upfront about it; available knowledge is out there, let us welcome it and within our group cultivate it, learning together by challenging and motivating one another. In practical terms we seek reasonable experimentation based on a well-defined individual technical construct in combination with a tactical structure that isn’t fixed but commutable and dynamic in accordance to soccer principles.
Soccer does not allow the luxury of timeouts; because of its rules it is a dynamic, fluid game for which a playbook would not be more than a reference for basilar movements from individual players, sectors of the team or from the entire team – essentially the game is mostly based on tactical behaviors (philosophy) apart from the momentary starts, restarts and set plays which is to say tactical diagrams.
