SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

You will notice an emphasis on training, more practice time and individual skills development and much less on games and “winning” and “losing”. We realize this will require a bit of a shift in attitude for many of us, but we have studied what soccer-countries are doing, and this approach has clearly worked. We need to move in this direction.

Competition and education

        • Will your sons and daughters stop playing games and stop competing? Not at all. But again, the emphasis will be different going forward. We are working on re-shaping the structure of our leagues to maintain competition and create a healthier     model for all.


       • This is very much about education—better education, training and preparation for our youth coaches, who in turn will  provide an improved environment for players at every age and stage of development.


       • Recreational players will enjoy the game much more than before. Importantly, they will also learn more and because they are learning and enjoying their experience, will want to stay active in the sport. Elite players will benefit, because the new player pathway we are developing will ensure that, wherever your son or daughter plays in the province, they will have the  opportunity to be seen, identified and recommended for more intensive training at a regional and ultimately “provincial”   level of play.
